S/African Branden Grace smashes Golf record

Branden Grace

The lowest round in a women's major is 61, shot by Hyo-Joo Kim in the 2014 Evian Championship.

Branden Grace finished his third round at The Open Championship in just 62 strokes, becoming the first man to ever shoot a 62 at a major championship. The tap-in was a formality, and the tens of thousands of people who had poured into this magnificent venue had seen history made. "And I just want to get out there again tomorrow and try to do something similar, just play some good golf". I knew I was obviously playing really well, and making the turn in five under was pretty special. So, I definitely lost a couple of shots there on the last couple of holes. "I had no idea that 62 was obviously the lowest ever", he added.

Justin Thomas was the latest to post 63 - at US Open venue Erin Hills last month - while Phil Mickelson and eventual victor Henrik Stenson both shot such a score in last year's Open at Royal Troon.

Lyft will finally develop its own self-driving cars
If a rider meant to go somewhere that an autonomous vehicle wasn't yet ready to navigate, a human driver could respond. Uber had the lead on ride-hailing and self-driving cars for a while, but it's encountered some roadblocks .

Grace had 10 pars and birdied Nos. But he missed an 8-footer on No. 16 and could not birdie the reachable 17th hole.

"My whole thing on the 18th was trying just not to make bogey". "I wanted to finish strong". Pin flags drooped and the greens grabbed approaches like Velcro. "I didn't always hit it the closest, but I gave myself the chances and that's all you need to do on a golf course like this".

"The greens are softer, still gettable", he said. "I think that would be a decent number to sit in the clubhouse at". Miller, who won the British Open at Birkdale in 1976, was in the NBC booth on Saturday to call Grace's gem. The Thomas round broke Miller's mark relative to par - Johnny's 63 came on a par-71 setup and JT's came on a par-72 Erin Hills course.

Treasury Department Fines Exxon Mobil for Russia Sanctions Violations
Exxon's statement included a list of media reports in which U.S. officials said the sanctions targeted individuals, not companies. The violations took place while Secretary of State Rex Tillerson was CEO of the company, according to the Associated Press.

History has been made in round 3 of The Open Championship.

"I honestly had no idea that was something historic", Grace told reporters.

You don't need the abilities that some of the great players of old used to have because the equipment now is so unbelievable.

'Pacific Rim: Uprising' Wants You For Jaeger Duty In Its First Teaser
Now, the first official teaser for Pacific Rim: Uprising has risen, and it wants to recruit you to the Jaeger uprising . What's attention-getting, though, is the implication that the Jaeger corps is in need of new pilots.

In all fairness to Royal Birkdale this year, and Royal Troon last year, European links courses are nearly entirely dependent on weather to test competitors. And then finishing the round and then finding out what you've done makes it even better, it really does.
