Fox makes hole-in-three in Scottish Open


Ryan Fox has hit the shot of the day off a provisional ball in a mixed final round of the Scottish Open in Troon.

Fox produced a rare ace on the 169-yard sixth hole at Dundonald Links with his provisional ball, which meant he wrote a three on his scorecard.

The flawless shot was still well worthy of celebration as a beaming Fox high-fived his caddy and playing partner on the walk to the green.

The New Zealand golfer Ryan Fox has finished in a tie for fourth at the Scottish Open as he eyes up his second British Open championship later this week.

Fox's confidence will be strong after his final round of two-under-par 70 left him eight-under for the tournament, five shots off co-leaders Rafa Cabrera Bello and Callum Shinkwin.

Fox shared fourth place in a five man group including Ireland's Padraig Harrington. "It was pretty cool to be able to do that today", Fox said after his round.

"I hit probably the worst shot I've hit as a pro followed by the best shot I've hit as a pro".

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.

He sits in 95th position, while compatriot Danny Lee is 77th.
