SAN FRANCISCO -- The name Grace is on the leaderboard and there is a good chance that you probably don't know this 24-year-old South African.

Branden Grace has won three times on the European Tour this year. And this is his first U.S. Open.

His caddie is Zack Rasego, a black South African, who was on the bag for Louis Oosthuizen when he won the 2010 British Open at St. Andrews.

So Grace, who eagled the par-5 17th to take a share of the lead, has a caddie who can keep him calm and steady this week at Olympic.
