Jason Dufner, who was Grace's playing partner Saturday and shot 66, shot 63 in the second round of the 2013 PGA Championship, which he went on to win.

Ten players had previously posted a round of 63 in an Open, with Phil Mickelson and eventual victor Henrik Stenson both posting that number during last year's tournament at Royal Troon.

The South African said he might have been helped by being unaware of the fact that he was in with a chance of making history.

The South African's eight-under-par round, featuring eight birdies and no dropped shots, saw him rocket up the leaderboard to four under par overall. "I had no idea that was the lowest". So, I definitely lost a couple of shots there on the last couple of holes.

We've been screaming out loud - seniors like Jack Nicklaus, Gary Player, Greg Norman and myself - for something to be done about the ball.

Even when speaking at his press conference, Grace recognised that last year's U.S. Open victor was out on the course, threatening his new milestone - and Johnson knew he had a chance too.

And yet Grace, the 29-year-old ranked 35th in the world, later admitted he had been blissfully unaware of what he was about to achieve as he came down the 18th.

Grace said Birkdale is "in immaculate condition" and "the best that I've seen any golf links in". He also has one 63 to his name in his career, albeit at the non-major WGC-HSBC Champions previous year.

Justin Thomas shot a 9-under 63 during Round 3 of the U.S. Open last month, breaking the single-round U.S. Open record in relation to par.

On the par-5 17th, Grace found the green in two and two-putted for his eighth birdie of the round. Grace, who began the day one stroke inside the cut line, was at 4 under.

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

Grace said he was trying to finish the round without a bogey and wanted to make one final birdie on the last hole. But obviously I knocked in the three-footer.
