Golf Australia Express : GA Express 251
NO.1 Men's World Rankings US Money List LPGA Money List Order of Merit LET Money List Women's Rankings Latest Rankings & Money Lists THE new benchmark for low scoring in men’s major championships. South African Branden Grace became the first man in golf history to shoot the score with his eight-birdie, bogey- less third round at Royal Birkdale. 62 PRICE James Hahn paid to get him and his caddie on a last-minute flight after he was promoted to first reserve for the Open. The American then got an unlikely call to take a place in the field when Brandt Snedeker pulled out with injury. The gamble paid off, with Hahn making the cut and earning a nice little payday. £10k THE lowest round by an Australian during the Open Championship belonged to Aaron Baddeley, who carded a 64 on Sunday. If not for two early bogeys, he could have grabbed his own slice of major championship history. 64 NUMBER of players – out ofafieldof156–who managed to break par in the second round, such was the difficulty presented by high winds and driving rain. 7 NUMBER of spectators who attended The Open – a record for any Open held outside St Andrews in Scotland.

The American started the second round just two shots from the lead but went on to miss the cut. An airswing didn’t help much, either.
