Fleetwood shoots record 63 at Carnoustie in Dunhill Links event

Fleetwood shoots record 63 at Carnoustie in Dunhill Links event

The world number 29 began the final day at the Old Course five ahead and shot a six-under 66 to win on 24 under. Fisher made 11 birdies in a stunning 61 on an unforgettable day that saw both players enter the history books.

"To win your first tournament here at the Home of Golf is fantastic, but to back it up and successfully defend around these three courses is pretty unique and very, very special".

Just imagine the damage someone like Dustin Johnson could have done on a day like Sunday round there, though McIlroy, admittedly, is another of the game's long-hitters and that didn't seem to do him any good on this occasion.

Seven birdies in eight holes helped Dubuisson to his lowest finish of the season, with Warren and Rock posting matching 66s and last week's British Masters champion Paul Dunne ending the week in a share of seventh. "And I think when you look at the numbers this year, where we are with distance spikes, and then you combined things like this, it certainly gives them something more to point maybe to the person who's kind of wondering if this is a good thing or not". I think the format is helping me.

"I feel like I can still salvage something from the rest of the year".

"What a great round of golf from Fish, it's unbelievable", Hatton told the European Tour. "Unfortunately I've got to sign for a 61 but I'll definitely take it!"

It was the second year in a row that Fisher had finished second at the Dunhill Links, this time four shots clear of Frenchman Victor Dubuisson, who carded a 63.

It was also a three shot lead for the winning team of Kieran Mcmanus & Jamie Donaldson, who shot 40-under-par through the 4 days of competition.

The Broome Manor pro had already collected four bogeys before reaching the 16th hole, but the Swindon Star went downhill further with a pair of double bogeys on the par five 16th and par four 17th. "I didn't hit a lot of quality shots off the tee coming in like I needed to".

Donaldson, who pocketed a cheque for 50,000 USA dollars, had nine birdies and an 18th hole eagle on his card for a 72 hole score of 40-under-par, winning by three from Robert Rock and Westlife singer Brian McFadden, Victor Dubuisson and Shantanu Narayen, who had a hole-in-one in round three, and Yikeun Chang and Erwee Botha.

"I'm a much better player now than I was in 2010 and 2012 when I was able to win a couple of majors", he said.
