Scotland's Russell Knox is the victor of this year's Dubai Duty Free Irish Open in Ballyliffin golf club, Donegal.
The duo were locked together on 14 under after 72 holes, with the fourth Rolex Series event of the season producing unforgettable drama at Ballyliffin Golf Club.
The New Zealander had that putt for the title but missed on the high side and the pair were left to go back up the last.
Knox had to hole a 40 foot on his final hole to get into the play-off, and he repeated the feat on the first play-off hole (the 18th) landing an nearly identical putt, which proved good enough.
Knox now heads to Scotland looking to win the Scottish Open. "I hit two great putts on 18 and one grazed the edge and one came back at me". "These things happen. People hole putts to win tournaments". Like, just react.' I mean, I pured the putt.
"It was it was my time this week and I feel very lucky". Knox made his first red number of the day via birdie-2 at 5 before he added a second circle at 8. "I hit the shots I wanted to down the stretch, I felt comfortable out there and it was close".
Erik van Rooyen led by four overnight but fell away with a final-round 74. A 30-footer on the eighth and another birdie on the ninth had him in a share of the lead but it would soon be a four-way tie.
"It maybe wasn't quite as good the last three days, but I putted a lot better today". Andy Sullivan and Zander Lombard took the other two places after finishing tied-sixth. The runner-up finish did, however, earn Fox a spot in the field for The Open Championship at Carnoustie.
Knox was controversially overlooked for a Ryder Cup wild card in 2016 despite being ranked 20th in the world at the time, higher than seven members of the European team who would go on to lose at Hazeltine.
Fox shot 68 to Knox's 66, with Jorge Campillo going round in 65 to finish one off the pace at 13 under. "The putting got me in this last couple of weeks". The leading four players not already exempt from the top-12 finishers qualified. I read the putt and I was like, 'Just don't aim.
