Grace, Johnson shoot up Open leaderboard in chase of Spieth

"I understand that leads can be squandered quickly, and I also understand how you can keep on rolling on one".

And maybe the most important factor, considering how many times the golf gods have kept the 62nd stroke out of the hole in a major - it was about damn time.

South Carolina-born Dustin Johnson is the No. 1 player in the world rankings and Rickie Fowler possesses a rare popularity, but Spieth feels like the soul of American golf.

He was in contention in the US Open at Chambers Bay in 2014 before an untimely wayward shot disappeared over a railway line.

There have been 10 scores of 63 at The Open, with only Jodie Mudd shooting the score at Royal Birkdale.

Less than an hour later, Grace two-putted from behind the green on 18 to post his 62.

ANIRBAN Lahiri came within a whisker of squeezing into the weekend, before a visit to the bunker on the very last hole, ended his hopes by one shot at the Open here. He is now three under for the tournament and apparently unaffected by the Thursday incident when the Swede's rental home was burgled and possessions stolen. "He had 28 putts - 28 putts is quite a few putts for someone who shoots 62", he told the Golf Channel. "I've had in this year a couple of five unders but I haven't had a number like this".

And on Saturday, he and Kuchar combined for 12 birdies playing in what is usually a place of tension in the final group.

Texas ex Jordan Spieth conquers The Open
On the long 15th he drained a huge eagle putt across the green to recapture the lead, and another birdie on 16 took him two clear. When he finally found the ball, it was nestled in thick grass on a hill so steep Spieth could barely stand up.

Minneapolis police chief resigns after shooting; replacement nominated
Minneapolis Police Chief Janee Harteau resigned on July 21, 2017 , according to a news release from Mayor Betsy Hodges . Earlier Friday night, Harteau had announced that she is resigning in the wake of the deadly shooting last weekend.

Spieth sliced his tee shot more than 60 yards right, over a tall sand dune near the driving range. They hit bad shots we recognise and great shots we can barely fathom.

The South African took advantage of benign conditions that were a world away from the rain and wind which rendered shot-making nearly impossible on Friday.

Spieth was at 6-under 134.

"It was a really solid round given the position we were in at the start of the day".

He then drained more putts for birdies on 14 and 16 before the two-putt on 17 meant he needed just a par from the last - where up to that point there had been just one bogey all day.

Henrik Stenson also shot a 63 in the final round of last year's British Open at Royal Troon on his way to lifting the Claret Jug. Kuchar is the essence of steady in a game that ebbs and flows, but he's never had a better chance to win a major than this one. Until his wedge-tossing victory celebration three weeks ago when he won the Travelers Championship, there was some thought Spieth had modestly underachieved this year. Three players have shot 62 - Minea Blomqvist in the 2014 Women's British Open, Lorena Ochoa in the 2006 Kraft Nabisco Championship and Mirim Lee in the 2016 Women's British Open.

Spieth, meanwhile, was forging ahead.

The stunning round from Grace jumped him from a tie for 45th to a tie for fourth on moving day.
