It was then left to Knox and he delivered in the final holes to set the mark at -14, which was equalled by Ryan Fox, but in the play-off the Scot proved himself with that repeat 40 foot putt.

Knox now heads to Scotland looking to win the Scottish Open.

He started the day six shots off the lead and completing the biggest comeback in Irish Open history presents some redemption for a player who finished second in this event in 2016.

"To make a putt like that, it's a dream come true", the 33-year-old told europeantour.com.

England target World Cup final but Croatia stand in the way
Giroud will look to break his World Cup duck in Sunday's final, where France will take on either England or Croatia . With 60 minutes of extra time and two penalty-kick shootouts, it's as if Croatia has played an entire extra match.

"My goal was to come to Europe for a month and then try and win a tournament, and to finish tied second last week in France and then to win this great tournament, I feel very lucky and unbelievable". "I feel bad for Ryan but I guess it was my time". "Fortunately I've done it before, so I knew I could do it".

"I hit the shots I wanted to down the stretch, felt comfortable out there and it was close". I had a great feeling on the greens.

"To make the Ryder Cup team, you have to win tournaments", Knox said.

After being joined on 13 under by Knox and Campillo, Fox had a glorious chance to moved two ahead again with a 12-foot eagle chance at the 17th but the putt slipped by to leave him one ahead.

Zsa Zsa, Bulldog Crowned World's Ugliest Pooch, Dies At 9
Brainard described the dog's death as "devastating" in an interview with Today .com, which first reported the news. Zsa Zsa , the English bulldog who last month was crowned World's Ugliest Dog , has died.

Fox had to settle for $777,770 and one of three spots at Carnoustie, with the other two going to South African Zander Lombard and England's Andy Sullivan, who tied for sixth with Danny Willett and Thorbjorn Olesen on nine-under.

The victory earned Knox a prize of nearly £890,000 and his first win since the Travelers Championship in the USA in 2016 as he moves up to fifth place in the Race to Dubai standings.

Knox might have hoped the "apple throwing" incident would be overshadowed by his victory, but we reckon it's a part of the Irish Open that we shouldn't forget in a hurry.

Erik van Rooyen led by four overnight but fell away with a final-round 74. However, after taking just 27 putts on the final day, he's confident he's close to hitting his top form for The Open. I've done it before in the USA on the last hole, 12 feet.
