What a season for Ryan Fox! Already winner of a trophy and author of 4 tops 3 and 2 tops 10, the New Zealander offered himself this Sunday in Saint-Andrews a second prestigious victory on the DP World Tour, the third of his career.
Under the sun and a light sea breeze, the winner of the 2015 Vaudreuil Golf Challenge signed this Sunday on the Old Course of Saint-Andrews a card of 68 (-4) punctuated by 7 birdies for three bogeys. With a total score of -15 and under the eyes of his father and his mother, the native of Auckland won with a stroke ahead of Callum Shinkwin and Alex Noren.
« It’s a victory that means a lot to me. I will take full advantage of this moment and celebrate it with my family. I was really very nervous on the last three holes. I didn’t make very good shots but luckily I managed to limit the breakage. It’s a day where I come back from behind but it’s above all a day where I tried to make as few mistakes as possible. I know my level of play at the moment and I am very proud of this victory. »
A success that allows him to climb to 3rd place in the Race to Dubai. Fox, which started the year ranked 230th in the world, now finds itself 25th.
