Grace of South Africa shoots 60 at Dunhill Links

Grace of South Africa shoots 60 at Dunhill Links

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 crushes a homer in the first at-bat of his first-ever start

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??
