Ross Fisher breaks the Old Course scoring record … in disappointing fashion

Rory Mc Ilroy was Fleetwood's playing partner but he could only card 71 on a disappointing day

Taking a five-shot lead into the final round, Hatton recovered from finding the Swilcan Burn with his approach into the first to chip in and save par. It fell two feet short and he missed the birdie putt back, though still broke the course record - held jointly by six players - by a stroke.

Hatton, who turns 26 next Saturday, did not drop a shot over his last 54 holes, a blistering run that gave him a second career Tour title and will lift him to 22nd in the world rankings.

The nine-time major champion and Hall of Famer also watched Sunday as Victor Dubuisson shot 63 (with a late bogey) and winner Tyrrell Hatton wrapped up a 24-under performance over two rounds at St. Andrews and a round each on Carnoustie and Kingsbarns. "Hopefully next year we'll be back playing in the tournament again".

Of the Irish, Paul Dunne finished on 13 under, 11 shots behind Hatton, after a closing round of 70 which was good enough for a tie of seventh place.

Hatton didn't feel Fisher's galloping footsteps behind him until he was nearly home, and it stiffened his resolve for the final two holes.

"I'm not going to leave any stone unturned and do everything I can to get back to the best player in the world". I think the format is helping me. In the process, his 24-under mark broke the tournament record by one that he matched previous year. "He pushed me all the way and I was very happy to get over the line".

Socceroos sweat on final WC play-off foes
With their country still embroiled in a vicious civil war , Syria have been playing their "home" games in Malaysia. However, two Tim Cahill goals meant that the dream came to an end in an unfortunate fashion.

In tough conditions, Steele shot a three-under-par 69 - one of just seven rounds in the 60s - to overturn a two-stroke deficit. A par on the 16th hole, followed by a nifty up-and-down par save on the 17th (see below) left Fisher needing to eagle the drivable par-4 18th to break 60.

The Broome Manor pro had already collected four bogeys before reaching the 16th hole, but the Swindon Star went downhill further with a pair of double bogeys on the par five 16th and par four 17th.

After winning this tournament 12 months ago, Steele maintained his position in the FedExCup standings for the entire season but failed to make the 30-man field at the Tour Championship.

"I really felt like at the end of the season through the summer, I definitely limited myself to what I was trying to achieve", Steele said.

"So this old man is just trying to show them that I'm not over the hill yet". "This is the first time I've made the cut at St Andrews, and it's a great feeling and, yes, I feel I'm living my dream at this place with so much history where the game's legends have won, and come and gone".
