Paul Dunne produced a spectacular finish to a successful week as he beat Scott Vincent on the Shootout hole to finish third at the ISPS Handa World Super 6 Perth.

The Irishman recorded an excellent 66 on Saturday to earn a seeding for the knockout stages and beat Matt Jager and Gareth Paddison before being defeated 1up by eventual winner and great friend Ryan Fox in the semi-finals.

He was two up after two in the battle for third but Vincent holed a long putt on the fifth and won the sixth to take it to the extra hole, where the Zimbabwean put his tee-shot in the grandstand.

That left the way clear for Dunne to hit the pin with what proved to be his final shot of the week after Vincent's concession.

"I thought I had it won with two holes to go," he said. "I was in nicely, five feet on the second-last hole, and Scott was 35 feet and he holed it.

"It was 99 yards, I couldn't tell if it was going to play 110 or 120 with the wind. He went up first, I think he hit his 120 club and he flew it into the grandstand, so I kind of made up my mind and just hit a nice shot.

"Without the wind and the situation it's a pretty basic shot, like 99 yards from a ball in hand, but it was nice to pull it off and get third place. I would have preferred to go a couple better."

He added: "Six holes is so short, anything can happen. Normally in match play momentum is so important but over six holes you can't even get momentum, it's just a matter of throwing shocks in people's faces and seeing how they react to it."
