Andrew Johnston's hole out on the 18th hole at the Aberdeen Asset Management Scottish Open has been voted at July's Shot of the Month by My European Tour fans. It's not often the best shot and the best celebration of the month occur at the same time, but Johnston may have done the double.

"I was having a bad day on the course and I thought if I can just finish with a birdie on the 18th it won’t be that bad" Johnston said. "I hit a good tee shot and stood over a wedge and hit it good. My caddy Gordy said “be good, get in” and next thing I know it’s trickling and trickling and it’s in the hole.

"Then all I remember is throwing my club, throwing my hat and then I thought “hang on a minute, I’m playing with Miguel” so I decided to pick up the club and do the dance. So I looked at him, put the sword away, did the jig and he loved it!" 

The 2014 Challenge Tour Order of Merit winner earned more than a third of the votes from My European Tour fans, beating out competition from Victor Dubuisson, Raphaël Jacquelin, Rafael Cabrera-Bello and Pelle Edberg.
 
Johnston wasn't the only winner, however. Thomas Oberholzer won a £500 gift card for The European Tour shop by voting in the competition.
