KINGSBARNS, Scotland (AP) Branden Grace of South Africa birdied the final five holes to shoot a remarkable 12-under 60 at the Dunhill Links Championship in Scotland on Thursday.
Grace broke the course record with a bogey-free round at Kingsbarns to become the 15th player in European Tour history to shoot 60.
Unlike the PGA Tour in the United States, no player has shot a 59 in the 40-year history of the European Tour.
The Pretoria-born Grace says, ``It could have been a 59 - I said to my caddy when I hit it stiff on 18 that it could be close to a 59.''
On a day of low scoring, Victor Dubuisson of France shot a course-record 62 on the famed Old Course at St. Andrews. It's one of three venues staging the event.
Juan Soto, the highly-regarded 19-year-old Nationals' prospect, got his first major league start of his career tonight.
How did it go, you ask? Surely it would take Soto - who was in Single-A less than two weeks ago - some time to adjust?
What were you doing at 19??
