European Tour player makes the classic hole-in-three

He was unable to get up-and-down and the resulting bogey saw him finish 72 holes tied with Cabrera-Bello.

Fox's final round at the Dundonald Links included a remarkable "hole in three" with his first tee shot going out of bounds and his second attempt from the tee delivering a hole in one.

With a stroke of luck to miss the burn on his approach to the final hole of regulation play, Cabrera Bello finished with a birdie to set the clubhouse lead at 13 under par with a course record of 64. "I've won before and I have been up there so many, many times with things not really working out for myself".

"I can't lie, I hit the first one straight out of the hosel [socket of the club head] and straight in the bushes and re-teed it with a wedge and hit a flawless shot".

"This time, I really felt I played some of the best golf of my life today. I mean, in the play-off, I really gave it a go and extremely pleased it worked out for me".

The Spaniard seems to have been knocking on the door nearly every week for the past couple of years and was beginning to wonder if he would ever win again - this was his third victory on the European Tour, but his first for more than five years.

"Attitude is everything, I think". "I played great yesterday and today".

Morris, being an all rounder, will give the team more runs to play with, and will undoubtedly do a good job with the ball as well. The visitors then in their second innings lost Heino Kuhn (8), but Elgar and Amla made sure they end the day on a positive note.

The British Open offers three spots to players not already exempt from among the top 10 at Dundonald Links. Up the fairway, said birdie would be nice but par should be good. "End of the day, I'll be more than happy to finish second but the win was on my mind and didn't happen".

Beginning the afternoon in a three-way tie for the lead, he had blown off the challenge of the likes of Ian Poulter to stand on the 18th tee needing just a par five to claim the victory.

Adam Scott said he's pleased he returned to play in the Scottish Open and that being "beaten up" in the third round is good preparation for what could follow at the Open.

Fox said the fourth place finish keeps up his momentum heading into his second Open championship at Royal Birkdale later this week.

And encouraging Dodt over the last few holes on the final day at Dundonald was 1995 Scottish Open victor, Wayne Riley, who was working as a course commentator for SKY Sports. Two putts from there proved sufficient to claim the Scottish Open. "I'm just waiting for something, some sort of spark, something to go right, and the last couple weeks haven't been like that".

He pitched it in to the bank just over the trap, but it failed to make it over the hill and rolled back down the slope away from the hole.
