Businessman Jeremy Ord was playing alongside South Africa’s Branden Grace for the team event in Scotland, where he received a remarkable break during his round at Kingsbarns.

Rose two off halfway lead
Report and highlights from the second round of the Alfred Dunhill Links Championship.
The ball could have easily got stuck in the wall or ricocheted into an unplayable position, only for it instead to canon off the stones and bounce off the path once again to head towards the green.
After racing through the fringe and gathering pace as it reached the putting surface, Ord then watched on in amazement as his ball finished no more than three feet from the flag.
