HOYLAKE, England (AP) -- Marc Leishman can add the British Open to another major where he's had a top-five finish.

The Australian started the day 11 strokes behind eventual winner Rory McIlory and in 15th place, but shot a 7-under 65 Sunday, equaling the course record at Royal Liverpool, to finish in a tie for fifth with countryman Adam Scott.

Leishman tied for fourth at the 2013 Masters won by Scott and tied for 12th at the U.S. Open later the same year.

But in three previous British Opens, he missed the cut twice and finished 60th.

On Sunday, he had four birdies in five holes on the front nine, then had three over his final four holes to finish five strokes behind McIlroy.
