On another signature day for Spanish golf in 2017, Cabrera Bello followed up an 8-under 64 - a course record at Dundonald Links - with a birdie in a sudden-death playoff against Shinkwin to win his third European Tour title.

Padraig Harrington, Anthony Wall, Matt Kuchar and Ryan Fox shared fourth place with Andrew Dodt at eight-under, while Rickie Fowler, Soren Kjeldsen, Lee Slattery, Andy Sullivan and Robert Rock made up the rest of the top 10 in a tie for ninth with Ian Poulter at 7-under.

After hitting his tee-off out of bounds, he responded by nailing his second ball - his third shot for the hole - straight in for a hole-in-three.

"It looked like I was a foot away from six or seven there but I got lucky and it kept the round going nicely".

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.

A bad second shot was heading inexorably for the burn but bounced to the right of the hazard and then shot sideways over it to finish on an upslope and offer a straightforward chip. I have struggled with it, but today I just felt it was a good day.

The Australian held a share of the lead as he entered the final round, and despite carding a one-over-par 73, managed to snatch one of three places on offer to golf's oldest major.

Asked whether he was concerned during the game, Rodgers said: "I didn't see or haven't heard as of yet what was thrown on". It was maybe a bottle of some sort, but anything, whether it's a coin or a bottle or whatever, it shouldn't happen.

"So, this result is massively important for me not only to be in The Open but hopefully later in the year I will qualify for the Race to Dubai finals".

The Spaniard clinched his third European Tour victory with a two-putt birdie at the first extra hole at Dundonald Links after hitting a superb approach shot into the par-five 18th from 275 yards. "I had no shot, really".

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.

"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.

"I just think that today I had that little bit of luck that I needed".

Dodt's round was a mix of three birdies, including a gem at the last, and also two bogeys. I need to play well. I just didn't get the breaks yesterday. "It might be the only time I get the chance to defend the Open, so I intend to make the most of it".

With Poulter already in the field for the Open then for Dodt and Shinkwin tomorrow takes on even greater significance.
