Ryan Fox sneaks inside men's top 100 ahead of the Open

When is a hole in one not a hole in one? Fox hit his first ball into some bushes, so he needed to hit a provisional ball in case he couldn't find the original.

"Not the only hole-in-three I've heard of, a mate had one back home".

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

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

Fox was relieved no one found his first ball, which would have meant he had to play it and the hole in one wouldn't count.

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.

The 30-year-old finished on eight-under, five shots behind tournament victor Rafa Cabrera Bello, who beat England's Callum Shinkwin in a play-off.

The 30-year-old hit five birdies and three bogeys in the final round, confirming his third consecutive top-10 finish on the European Tour. Cabrera Bello eventually defeated Shinkwin in a playoff.

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