Fox in a tie for 19th in South Africa

Herald on Sunday - - IN OTHER NEWS -

Ryan Fox slipped at the Eu­ro­pean Tour’s Ned­bank Golf Chal­lenge in South Africa. The Kiwi golfer carded three bo­geys and two birdies in a one-over 73 in the sec­ond round at the Gary Player Coun­try Club in Sun City to be in a tie for 19th at one-un­der. Fox started the day in a tie for 11th af­ter an open­ing round two-un­der 70. Fox trails leader Ser­gio Gar­cia of Spain by eight strokes. Gar­cia carded a one-un­der 71, a day af­ter his eight-un­der 64 gave him a four-shot first round lead. Home favourite Louis Oosthuizen pro­duced a strong back nine to card a five-un­der 67 and move within a shot of Gar­cia. South African Oosthuizen is his near­est chal­lenger as he seeks a first win at a tour­na­ment he has long cov­eted, with Fin­land’s Mikko Korho­nen (70) three shots back.

Ryan Fox dropped from 11th to 19th.
