Dodt secures final place in British Open

New Zealand's Ryan Fox in action during the Scottish Open

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.

Bello defeated Callum Shinkwin on the first playoff hole.

From there, he seized control.

On seven under (-7) going into the sixth hole par three, Fox lost his first ball before having to hit another off the tee. "I had an unbelievable day and I really went for it on the play-off. I mean, in the play-off, I really gave it a go and extremely pleased it worked out for me".

One better than that with one hole to play, Shinkwin looked likely to claim a narrow victory. A tentative shot then rolled back down the hill and, after giving himself a 6ft putt to salvage his par, he left it agonisingly short to make bogey. It must have been frustrating for Callum but I know from experience how hard it is to close out these events. "Obviously a few months back, things were pretty hard but obviously life's a little bit easier right now and I'm enjoying my golf".

I hit a couple of loose shots and probably got a little bit of luck along the way, which you need on a day like this.

The 23-year-old from South Korea shot her second straight 5-under 67 and won a day-long battle with front-running Shanshan Feng and teenage amateur Hye-Jin Choi at Trump National Golf Club.

Tottenham's Cameroon forward heading to Marseille- Clinton Njie
Njie was snapped up by Tottenham from Lyon , but struggled to make an impact during his one season in English football. Tottenham forward Clinton Njie is to join French side Marseille on a permanent deal after the two clubs agreed a deal.

All day, Shinkwin had demonstrated just why the pros have been predicting great things for him.

Shinkwin, an unheralded Englishman ranked No. 405, left western Scotland with a spot in next week's British Open and the belief that he can compete with the game's best players.

"On the 18th I hit a great second shot in and finished in a divot on a downslope of the [bank of the] bunker", he said.

Cabrera Bello, with 24 top-10s to his name since his last victory in February 2012, emerged from the pack as Shinkwin's main challenger with a flawless round that featured eight birdies, including one at the 18th when he fortunately avoided the burn to the right of the green.

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.

Fox is on the crest of a wave at present with a 6th place finish in France and a 4th place finish in Northern Ireland last week which earned him an Open Championship start.
