Branden Grace

Was the talk of golf at Royal Birkdale two years ago when he became the first man to achieve a round of 62 in any of the four majors.

Was the talk of golf at Royal Birkdale two years ago when he became the first man to achieve a round of 62 in any of the four majors.

It followed no fewer than 31 scores of 63, 10 of them in The Open, yet for Grace, who finished joint sixth, it was not his lowest on the European Tour. That was a 12 under par 60 at Kingsbarns in his capture of the 2012 Alfred Dunhill Links Championship.

Winner of all his five games in the 2015 Presidents Cup match in South Korea, four of them with fellow South African Louis Oosthuizen as his partner, and an eight-time European Tour champion, the last of them coming on home soil at the 2017 Nedbank Challenge, often dubbed “Africa’s Major”.

Since attending the European qualifying school in 2011 he has reached the world top 10 and has finished fourth and fifth in the US Open and third and fourth in the PGA Championship. Had his first PGA Tour success at the 2016 RBC Heritage and was third behind Rory McIlroy and Danny Willett on the 2015 European Tour “Race to Dubai” money list. Earned his third Presidents Cup cap in 2017.
