    Best Open Finish

Had his best major finish when he tied for 16th at Royal Portrush in 2019 and went on to earn an exemption for Sandwich by topping the 2019 Australasian Tour Order of Merit.

Fox is back now after a dramatic Dutch Open in May. As part of The Open Qualifying Series three spots at St Andrews were up for grabs and the New Zealander, winner of February’s Ras Al Khaimah Classic by five, was in a play-off with Victor Perez, who then stayed alive with putts of 20 and 30 feet before making a 40-footer to win at the fourth extra hole.

The son of former All Black rugby great Grant Fox claimed his first DP World Tour title at the 2019 ISPS Handa World Super 6 in Perth, a year after he lost a play-off to Russell Knox in the Dubai Duty Free Irish Open at Ballyliffin when Knox making a 40-foot putt on the final green and amazingly repeated that at the first extra hole.

Has had three victories on the PGA Tour of Australasia, while he represented New Zealand at the 2016 and 2021 Olympics. Had another second place at the Horizon Irish Open on July 3.
