Shocking final round spoils Ryan Fox’s maiden USA PGA Championship finishing 54th

Ryan Fox has completed his maiden appearance at the US PGA Championship on a low note, diving 42 places in the final round in Charlotte, North Carolina.

Kiwi No.2 Fox carded eight bogeys and a double bogey in a seven-over 78, undoing the meritorious work of his two middle rounds which left him 12th with a round to play.

The European Tour-based professional shook off three early bogeys with a birdie on the sixth hole and an eagle on the par-five seventh.

However, Fox’s trademark distance off the tee was spoiled by inaccuracy at the Quail Hollow course, including a tee-off into the water on the par-three 17th which cost two shots.

It completed a roller-coaster display by world No.101 Fox in his first major tournament on US soil.

His opening 75 was followed by a 66 – a round bettered by only two other golfers across the week – and a 71.

His closing round was the equal-worst by anyone on Sunday, leaving him on six- over, 14 shots behind winner Justin Thomas.
