Spaniard Rafael Cabrera-Bello edged out Callum Shinkwin in a Scottish Open play-off on Sunday to claim his first European Tour win for more than five years.

The world number 31 fired a stunning eight-under-par course record of 64 at Dundonald Links to put the pressure on Shinkwin, who just needed a par at the par-five 18th hole to win the tournament outright.

But the Englishman took four shots from the edge of the green to drop into a tie with Cabrera-Bello on 13 under par overall.

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 for the title.
