Ormbsy struck the ace during the final round of the tournament held at the Renaissance Club in East Lothian, holing his tee shot at the par-three 12th to earn the huge haul of single malt made by the Glengoyne Distillery near Glasgow.

Ormsby went on to finish tied 12th and pick up €107,000 in prize money at the Rolex Series event. Glengoyne 10-year-old Highland Single Malt Scotch Whisky retails at around £30 a bottle, adding up to over £6,000 of whisky.
