Ian Poulter has given himself an excellent chance of breaking a lengthy winless drought after grabbing a share of the Scottish Open lead on Saturday. Poulter may yet head for Birkdale and the third major of 2017 with what would be a first European Tour win in nearly five years under his belt.

Shinkwin, meanwhile, had nudged his third shot to about seven-feet but another tentative putt sat on the edge and the Scottish crown belonged to Cabrera-Bello.

Shinkwin was trying his best to be as phlegmatic as possible, concluding that "it's been a very good week and at the end of the day I'm more than happy to finish second, although of course the win was on my mind".

"And to now being playing in my first Open, my first major and in my first full season is going to be very special and I am very happy".

Padraig Harrington fired a superb 66 to lie joint fourth on eight under. It's taken a while but I finally got there.

"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".

Poulter failed to spark as he mixed three birdies with five bogeys in a 74 which left him in a share of ninth place alongside fellow Englishmen Andy Sullivan (72), Robert Rock (66) and Lee Slattery (68), American Rickie Fowler (70) and Denmark's Soren Kjeldsen (68). I will go out there and do the best I can.

Shinkwin and Dodt are in a good position to claim two of the three Open places available for non-exempt players who finish in the top 10.

"It's all a learning curve and obviously if you win, you have to have luck on your side". "I just couldn't get the line and the speed together".

It came after a six-over-par 78 in brutal wet and windy conditions and Scott admitted that, while he struggled, he was pleased to be able to hit some shots he could have only done playing on a links course. And the Ryder Cup player hit a fantastic shot into the final green when the two returned in the play-off to set up a tap-in birdie and secure the third Tour title of his career.

"I made a few birdies when I started the round, so I just tried to keep going and going and going". I hit balls for an hour and a half last night, but then felt stiff and said: 'That's enough.' But at least I know when enough is.

Shanshan Feng snapped a run of 23 consecutive pars with a birdie at the 18th to reclaim the lead over a wave of South Korean challengers heading into Sunday's final round of the US Women's Open at Trump National.
