Dodt said "I found myself being really mentally tired".

Kiwi golfer Ryan Fox has jumped into contention at the Scottish Open, with a third round 69 lifting him into a tie for fifth just three shots off the leaders. "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". "Obviously a few months back, things were pretty hard, but life's a little bit easier right now and obviously I'm enjoying my golf. Obviously, a few months back, things were pretty hard but life's a little bit easier right now and obviously I'm enjoying my golf", said Poulter.

From just off the green, he rolled a putt to 4 feet and left his par putt two inches short.

As Spain's Rafael Cabrera Bello beat Englishman Callum Shinkwin in a play-off to win his first tournament since 2012, Dodt finished alongside New Zealand's Ryan Fox, Anthony Wall, Padraig Harrington and Matt Kuchar.

Dodt will now be part of a big contingent of 11 Australians to compete at Royal Birkdale on the 26th anniversary of Ian Baker-Finch and Mike Harwood finishing one-two in the 1991 Open.

"It's been a very good week and at the end of the day, I'll be more than happy to finish second but the win was on my mind and didn't happen", he said.

In the film, Shahid Kapoor portrayed the role of Punjabi rockstar, Tommy Singh, who is coping with a drug addiction. Raabta co-stars Sushant Singh Rajput and Kriti Sanon performed together on songs from their recently released film.


Fair play to the 33-year-old from Las Palmas, who shot 64 in the final round to apply pressure on the young Englishman - but he will never get a luckier victory.

Shinkwin's disappointment was eased by earning a place in Thursday's British Open, along the assurance of securing his Tour card for next year.

"When we got to the 10th, probably through the 14th, 15th, it started raining and it just got so hard". I knew it was only going to go one way, up the leaderboard.

Joining Shinkwin at Royal Birkdale next week are Matthieu Pavon, who finished third on ten-under-par, and Aussie Andrew Dodt, who now has to cancel a holiday to NY with his girlfriend. "We knew it was going to be really tough today but I didn't think they would be quite as bad as they were".

"I'm absolutely pumped to be playing in my first major". I need to play well.

Even earlier, Open champion Henrik Stenson's final competitive round before beginning the defense of his title ultimately ended in rather downbeat fashion.
