Fox finishes fourth on way to Open

The 33-year-old struck a ideal second shot on the extra hole, the 18th, and holed out for a birdie four before Shinkwin left his putt just short.

"I have been fighting for this win for many years", he said.

England's Callum Shinkwin looked to have the Aberdeen Asset Management Scottish Open title in his grasp as he stood on the 18th tee at Dundonald in the final round needing just a par five to claim the victory. I think I was overdue.

Rory McIlroy practised early, and admitted afterwards that his efforts to get back on track following two missed halfway cuts in a row are being hampered by the fact he's still not completely recovered from the rib injury that disrupted the first half of his season.

It is Fox's third top 10 finish in three weeks on the tour and see the Kiwi hit 14th on the 2017 Race to Dubai money list with a total of NZ$1.28m.

"Obviously extremely happy. I had won before and I'd been up there so many times".

Newgarden wins second Honda Indy Toronto
Newgarden, the 26-year-old from Nashville, won his second Honda Indy Toronto on Sunday, leading the final 58 of 85 laps. I mean the support that we feel each and every year is unbelievable . "I think it had to be hard to pass people today".

He also made it back-to-back Spanish winners after Jon Rahm stormed his way to success in last week's Irish Open. Not only because of Shinkwin's collapse, but a piece of good fortune he got at the last in regulation play that was verging on the grotesque.

The former English Amateur champion, whose caddie Andy Sutton worked for Ben Curtis when the American was a shock victor of the 2003 Open, at least had the consolation of a place at Royal Birkdale and a cheque for £598,000. "I was starting to feel a little pressure every time I was up there contending".

Like Shinkwin, Dodt is on course to secure an Open Championship spot - three are on offer for the leading non-exempt players in the top ten - after the 31-year-old from Brisbane birdied the last to move into a share of top spot.

Fox shared fourth place in a five man group including Ireland's Padraig Harrington.

"Of course, today was not the result I was seeking but I still like playing the week before".

Brice Garnett shot a 65 on Sunday to win the Utah Championship by one stroke for his third win on the Tour. The putt slid past and two sloppy bogeys over the closing four holes meant a great round became merely a good one. "I was waiting for the ambulance to appear on the 18th tee because there were a lot of sirens going off in my head". I'll be aggressive to the pin locations that I feel are accessible and just go and have some fun. "It might be the only time I get the chance to defend the Open, so I intend to make the most of it".
