Ryan Fox beaten in a play-off at Irish Open

  • Russell Knox celebrates holing the winning putt on the 18th hole

As fate would have it, Knox then placed his approach shot in nearly the exact same spot on the playoff hole.

After falling as far as No. 137 in June, Knox is back inside the top 50 for the first time since the Wyndham Championship in August.

With the win came a cheque for $998,425, and some very valuable Ryder Cup points.

The stunning success came seven days after Knox had finished joint-second behind Alex Noren in the French Open at Le Golf National outside Paris. Goodness, did he show his mettle to put himself in a ideal frame of mind heading to his native land for the Scottish Open this week and then The Open at Carnoustie.

It was an epic end to a hugely successful event that attracted 94,239 fans over five days - 27,055 yesterday - making it bigger than the preceding Irish Opens at The K Club and Portstewart.

And it was McIlroy who presented the gleaming Waterford crystal trophy to Knox after McIlroy failed to make any impression all week in not managing to break 70 and end T28th. I remember thinking as soon as I hit it, I was like, 'Oh, I've hit it a bit firm, ' and it just started tracking and it dropped, unbelievable.

Knox now has two weeks on home soil with not only the goal of a first Scottish Open triumph but matching Paul Lawrie's feat of becoming the second Scot in three Carnoustie Open's to lift the Claret Jug. But I hit some great shots, and the putter was just hot.

"I'm happy", he said after the round. Obviously it seems like I've always tried too hard. "I feel bad for Ryan but I guess it was my time". "These things happen. People hole putts to win tournaments".

"It's tough to describe how awesome this feels", Knox said after a closing 66.

Fox and Knox looking set for two-man play-off.

However, a second monstrous putt from Knox put the pressure back on Fox to hole out to get it to a second playoff hole.

A triple-bogey on the second looked to have ended Rahm's chances but he birdied the next two and was back in red figures on the day when he chipped in for an eagle on the sixth.

Defending champion Jon Rahm shot 66 to finish tied fourth with Van Rooyen, while Danny Willett continued his recovery from the depths in tied sixth spot. A 364 metre bomb of a drive down the middle set him up perfectly, while Knox narrowly avoided a bunker and could only recover to give himself a long putt for birdie.
