The 20-year-old American is playing in his first Major and even if he shoots in the 80s, it has been an impressive debut.
Following Kucher into the bunker from his tee shot on the 17 however, the grin was quickly wiped off Spieth's face as his opponent closed the lead to just two again. He will tote along his 8-for-his-last-9 record when leading after 54 holes, with that Masters the oddball in the bunch.
Even though Spieth carded a second bogey-free 65 of the week, he was eclipsed by the historic effort of Grace, who carded eight birdies and no bogeys to shoot the first 62 in men's major championship history.
"It couldn't have been better timing and I could play the last eight holes nearly as a new round".
"It (the 2016 Masters) was a humbling experience that I thought at the time could serve me well going forward. I had no idea that 62 was obviously the lowest ever", he added.
But Spieth and Kuchar set up another final-day duel reminiscent of 12 months ago when Stenson and Phil Mickelson went toe-to-toe at Royal Troon.
Kuuuuuuuch, Saturday EditionMatt Kuchar's one of those reliable gamers who's been around seemingly forever, but has few signature wins to his credit.
Kuchar shot a 66, and that includes a double-bogey on 16, when he drove into a fairway bunker, had to punch out, and had a three-putt after his approach.
Venus Williams vs Jelena Ostapenko
But she had no answer to Williams, who played with a self-assured and gangly ease, stepping up the power only when she needed to. Yesterday it was the turn of the talented Jelena Ostapenko , just one month old when Williams made her Wimbledon debut in 1997.

By making that change , the near-elderly working poor would be able to afford coverage, and the poverty trap would be eliminated. Elaine Rodriguez spoke for many parents saying her disabled daughter, Leandra, depends on Medicaid for medicine and oxygen.
Spieth's round was another master class in ball control, the second time this week he has recorded five birdies and no bogeys in 18 holes round Birkdale's hard links. He had just 43 percent accuracy off the tee and he didn't hole enough putts on the back nine.
He finished with another birdie and appreciated the omen that could bring in 24 hours' time.
"It's not like I went through a war", McIlroy said. "But that's probably the most important thing for me to do".
The 23-year-old Texan was terrific shooting a 5-under 65, to sit at 11-under par for the tournament, extending his lead to three shots over Matt Kuchar and books are so confident in Spieth's ability to close, that he is now a huge fave to win The Open Championship. And if I don't win [Sunday], it has nothing to do with that. "To shoot 4-under, I'm pretty pleased". Or will one of the dark horses be ready to pounce on any mistake he makes along the way? NOTEWORTHY Fifteen players shot 66 or better on a day when there was plenty of sun and little wind. He never said anything, so good on him, I suppose. "I think it has to do with I'm very confident with how I'm hitting it". That would have to be Austin Connelly.
"It's a dream come true", said Connelly. It definitely helped. It kept me positive. He's been close plenty of times with eight top 10 finishes. The vile vegetation of its rough, fattened up with the blankets of rain that came Friday, lacked golf balls to devour, so true were so numerous unburdened shots. I felt I gave myself some chances coming in. Though he teed off Saturday with a two-shot lead, he also knew from watching morning play on TV that Birkdale, on this day at least, was very vulnerable.
The in-form Tommy Fleetwood struggled on Thursday with the pressure of being the local favorite and posted a 76.
Despite his dominance this weekend, it's something that follows him whenever he's in contention.
