CAREER BEST FINISH FOR FOX

4/02/2018



Ryan Fox has completed a career best result on the European Tour to finish in a tie for third at the Maybank Championship this evening.

With three early rounds of matching 68’s, Fox went even deeper when it counted today by recording a final round of six-under par, 66.

It was clear that the Auckland professional had a love-affair with the opening hole at the Saujana Golf & Country Club playing the par five a total of six-under par for the week.

 
This included an eagle on the final round to spark his charge, but the most memorable moment of his week will be his albatross (two) with a six iron from 195 metres.
 
With this, Fox also pockets a handsome $230,000 NZD for his efforts, adding to his $2,000,000 NZD total in 2017.
 
Any chances of a maiden European Tour victory were quickly washed away by a spectacular final round performance from Shubhankar Sharma who made 10 birdies on his way to a round of ten- under, 62 to finish two shots clear of second place.
 
Fox now travels to Lake Karrinyup Country Club for the ISPS HANDA World Super 6 Perth from 8-11 February where he will join Mike Hendry and more in hope for a Kiwi victory.
