Shinkwin had that prize - and with it an extra £300,000 - in his grasp as he came towards the end of his final round at Dundonald Links last night, but nerves and some questionable decision-making let him down as he handed victory to Rafael Cabrera Bello instead.

He pitched it in to the bank just over the trap, but it failed to make it over the hill and rolled back down the slope away from the hole. His eagle putt came short but he tapped in for birdie, leaving Shinkwin a 7-foot birdie putt to force a second hole.

Shinkwin again hit a nervy putt and it was the Spaniard who claimed the title after earlier setting a new course record at Dundonald Links with a 64.

He ended with a one-under 71 for a total of one-over 145 and the cut fell at one-under and that meant even his seven-foot birdie putt miss on 18th may not have saved him.

"There's life in the old dog yet", Poulter added, with a determined smile, "and I'm relishing the opportunity tomorrow to go out and get stuck in".

"Obviously extremely happy. I had won before and I'd been up there so many times".

"I can't lie, I hit the first one straight out of the hosel [socket of the club head] and straight in the bushes and re-teed it with a wedge and hit a ideal shot".

"I was very happy, I really gave it a go in the playoff and it worked out for me".

"I learnt I can compete with the best". "Everything turned out the be fantastic". I think that's the most important thing coming into an event like this, not feeling that you're playing anywhere near 100 per cent. I did everything I needed to do well, I stayed patient, I didn't get down on myself, I putted good and I really trusted myself.

It is widely believed that the Prime Minister has come on the forefront after sensing the mood of the Opposition parties. He also called upon all political parties to ensure that everyone votes and no vote is wasted.

"Getting back on track today was important so I can head into next week feeling like my game's in the right place".

It was still a great result for Dodt as he secured a start at the British Open and moved up to 20th on the European Tour's Race to Dubai standings.

Fox placed 59th in his first attempt at the Open in 2015 and will join by fellow New Zealander Michael Hendry in the Royal Birkdale field on Thursday.

The New Zealander was in lofty company in fourth spot, tied with former Open champion Padraig Harrington, American Matt Kuchar, Englishman Anthony Wall and Australian Andrew Dodt.

Frenchman Mathieu Pavon also bagged a place at Royal Birkdale for the Open by finishing third on 10 under, with Dodt two shots back and Poulter one more adrift.

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

"I'm not in The Open yet".

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