History-maker Grace plays in Alfred Dunhill Links

ST ANDREWS, August 17, 2017 – South Africa’s Branden Grace, who made golfing history this year by becoming the first man to shoot 62 in a Major Championship, will play in the Alfred Dunhill Links at St Andrews in October.

Grace said: “It’s been a historic year for me with the record 62 in The Open. Now I’m looking forward to being back at the Alfred Dunhill Links which I won in 2012 – an event I love, played over three great courses.”

Currently ranked 33 in the world, he shot the eight-under-par round at Birkdale in July. There had previously been 31 rounds of 63 in Major Championships.

In 2012, Grace led the Alfred Dunhill Links from start to finish to become the youngest winner of the event at 24 years and 140 days. His two shot victory, ahead of Denmark’s Thorbjorn Olesen, included a spectacular first round 60 at Kingsbarns.
