Fox hails NI Open after Galgorm triumph

New Zealander Ryan Fox, son of All Blacks rugby great Grant Fox, warm ups for his Olympic Games challenge by winning the Northern Ireland Open at Galgorm Castle.

Fox fired nine birdies and an eagle in a closing 62 as he finished four clear of South African Dylan Frittelli, England's Max Orrin, plus German pair Dominic Foos and Bernd Ritthammer.

"I played as well as I can play today," said the 29-year-old Auckland native told BBC Northern Ireland's Joel Taggart.

"Today felt like a main tour event, in fact ever bigger. The spectators out here this week were unbelievable and it was especially great playing with Michael (Hoey) today."
