Scottish Open: Graeme McDowell drops back to miss out on Open place

Scottish Open: Graeme McDowell drops back to miss out on Open place

"No. 12 was about as tough as I've ever seen in terms of wind and rain", Poulter said, holding a cup of tea to warm his hands.

The World No 31 fired a stunning eight-under-par course record of 64 at Dundonald Links to put the pressure on Shinkwin, who just needed a par at the par-five 18th hole to win the tournament outright.

The world no 4 was sitting third after an opening round 68 but fell back steadily through the tournament to eventually finish 11 shots behind the victor South Korean Park Sung-hyun.

However, the 31-year old is not only in position for a third Tour success but he and Shinkwin are now the two top of three qualifiers into next week's Open at Royal Birkdale. "I just tried to stay one shot at a time, just waiting for things to come to me and obviously I'm very, very pleased with the entire week". I was starting to feel a little bit of pressure every time I was up there contending.

"I'd have signed for that score if you'd offered me it before I went out", said Poulter.

Beginning the afternoon in a three-way tie for the lead, he had blown off the challenge of the likes of Ian Poulter to stand on the 18th tee needing just a par five to claim the victory.

Shinkwin fluffed the chip and missed the putt to go into a play-off with Spain's Rafael Cabrera Bello, who won at the first extra hole.

Hinchcliffe races to 3rd at Toronto Indy
He won at the Grand Prix of Long Beach in April and finished third in the first of two races at the Detroit Grand Prix in June. After a strong start to the second round, Hinchcliffe fell back but was able to recover on a final shootout lap.

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 have been fighting for this win for many years", he said. "I had an unbelievable round and then really went for it in the play-off".

"Attitude is everything, I think".

Shinkwin and Dodt are in a good position to claim two of the three Open places available for non-exempt players who finish in the top 10. "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".

DeChambeau overcame a four-stroke deficit to beat Rodgers by a stroke for his first PGA Tour title - and a spot next week in the British Open.

"When we got to the 10th, probably through the 14th, 15th, it started raining and it just got so hard". It is the third straight Rolex Series event offering a $7 million prize fund. Phil Mickelson is not playing the Scottish Open for the first time since 2009.

The Open is the number one championship for us and to have qualified is great.
