There isn't a more rare and impressive shot in golf than the hole-in-one.

Sunday in the Scottish Open, after Ryan Fox hit his tee shot on the 169-yard sixth hole into some bushes, he teed up a provisional ball in case he was unable to find his first.

He had reason to smile after his fourth-equal finish in the European Tour event on Monday (NZT), his final leadup to this week's Open Championship at Royal Birkdale.

They both may pale in comparison to the hole-in-three, which normally occurs when a player has hits their ball into a water hazard, re-tees and then knocks it in.

Fox's confidence will be strong after his final round of two-under-par 70 left him eight-under for the tournament, five shots off co-leaders Rafa Cabrera Bello and Callum Shinkwin. "It was pretty cool to be able to do that today", Fox said after his round.

Fox shared fourth place in a five man group including Ireland's Padraig Harrington.

"I hit probably the worst shot I've hit as a pro followed by the best shot I've hit as a pro".

Fox jumped into contention with a third round 69 lifting him into a tie for fifth.

He sits in 95th position, while compatriot Danny Lee is 77th.
