   Ryan Fox heads into the British Open with a pair of tied for fourth-place finishes on the European Tour

The par three sixth provided his shot of the day after he went out of bounds from the tee. And the Ryder Cup player hit a fantastic shot into the final green when the two returned in the play-off to set up a tap-in birdie and secure the third Tour title of his career.

In the end, victory in the Aberdeen Asset Management Scottish Open belonged to Rafa Cabrera-Bello.

In sideways rain and strong winds on Scotland's west coast, clubs slipped from players' hands, hardy fans' umbrellas were blown inside out, and puddles formed on fairways on the battered Dundonald Links.

Dodt was five shots off the pace at the Scottish Open after sitting in a three-way share of the lead heading into the final round.

Matthieu Paven posted a six-under 66 on Sunday to end up solo third at 10-under-par and secure the other spot at Royal Birkdale next week along with Shinkwin and Dodt, with Dodt having to cancel the trip to NY he'd planned with his wife to take up his spot at his first major tournament. "And out here, I can't get technical at all about where I want to hit it, what flight I hit, where I want to land it on the green".

The last of Poulter's 14 global victories was in November 2012 at the WGC-HSBC Champions in China.

A 72nd-hole meltdown from Callum Shinkwin helped, too, at the Scottish Open. "I missed three putts inside four feet". It is a hard task but you come to expect that at Links.

"You know it's going to be tough".

Playing the final hole in regulation-a 586-yard par 5-Shinkwin was left of the putting surface in two shots, with a bunker between him and the flag.

A stuntman dies on the set - Here

Rickie Fowler (74) and Matt Kuchar (73) are with Knappe at T-8th.

"You saw a year ago with Henrik [Stenson], the emotion when he won and that is something you want to have and get the feeling of some time sooner rather than later".

Another cheerful chap en route to Birkdale was the man who won the Open title there in 2008. Starting in a share of the lead, Harrington missed two-footers for par on Nos.

The pick of the day was Andy Sullivan, whose 67 had six birdies, but the sequence of bogey-double bogey-eagle from 16th to 18th presented an adventurous journey as he zoomed from T-31 to fourth.

He has virtually guaranteed his European Tour card for 2018.

He picks up just over $90 000 in prize money. When Brian Gay alerted officials to a discrepancy in the points structure used for players competing with a medical exemption, Poulter got a reprieve. "I will obviously go out there and do the best I can".

"It's fantastic to be playing in The Open and I'm looking forward to playing at Royal Birkdale".

Needlessly going for the green in two, however, he left himself in a frightful spot with a bunker between him and the flag - and he duly needed four more shots from nowhere to complete the hole for his only bogey. That just proves to yourself that you can play good in any condition, in any golf event. "You know it's going to be tough".
