Fox Qualifies for the Open Championship1 Jul 2015
Ryan Fox has qualified for the Open Championship at the home of golf St Andrews. He has come out on the other side of the very tough qualification process.
Fox waited four hours for the field to get in, then made par the second playoff hole to earn his spot! He teed off at 6:50am and got off the course at 8:50pm taking home a place at the Open Championship, St Andrews!
"This is massive. My first major at the Home of Golf - it doesn't get any better." said Fox
His consistency over the past month has been rewarded.
Ryan Fox had a good outing last weekend on the European Challenge Tour, finishing T10, which saw him gain entry to next week’s Aegean Airlines Challenge in Germany. For Fox all roads from here were leading to the Open Championship at the home of golf, but the dream came true today at a two round qualifying tournament at Gailes Links golf course.
As mentioned he had to wait for the field to finish then take on Rhys Davies in a playoff.
A huge moment in a young golfers career and the PGA wishes him all the best.
