Fox excelled on the longer holes of the Dundonald Links in North Ayrshire, Scotland, with birdies on three of the four par fives on the course - the third, 14th and 18th holes.

"I found myself particularly on the back nine, just a little bit mentally tired", Dodt said.

Two shots further back is fellow Englishman Sullivan, a three time Tour victor two years ago, who finished bogey, birdie and eagle in his score of 67.

The 33-year-old struck a flawless second shot on the extra hole, the 18th, and holed out for a birdie four before Shinkwin left his putt just short. "It wasn't there for me", Shinkwin said. "Obviously a few months back, things were pretty hard but obviously life's a little bit easier right now and 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.

England's Andrew Wall tied Dodt for fourth place, but the Queenslander clinched the final spot at The Open due to his higher position in the world rankings.

A closing two-under 70 featured five birdies through the middle stages at the Dundonald Links.

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.

Cabrera Bello will climb into the world's top 20 heading into the Open Championship at Royal Birkdale.

"I have been fighting for this win for many years", the 33-year-old said.

"I've won before and I have been up there so many, many times, but things have not really worked out for myself", he confirmed.

"So, really, really happy how I played today". I just didn't get the breaks yesterday. I knew it was only going to go one way, up the leaderboard.

Ten days ago, the sometimes outspoken English golfer brilliantly let his clubs do the talking in qualifying for next week's British Open where in 2008 he recorded a career-best finish in all of his 53 Major showings of second.

Shinkwin had to settle for second and a place in next week's British Open at Royal Birkdale, while Frenchman Matthieu Pavon also grabbed a spot with a final-round 66 that saw him finish three strokes adrift of the leading duo.

"Of course, today was not the result I was seeking but I still like playing the week before".

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