Ryan Fox wins European Tour's Super 6 event

Ryan Fox wins maiden European Tour title in Perth

A two-time victor on both the Australasian and Challenge Tour, Fox broke through for his first European Tour title with a commanding win over Spain's Adrian Otaegui in the final of the ISPS HANDA World Super 6 Perth tournament at Lake Karrinyup Country Club.

"Adrian didn't quite play to his best this afternoon but I'm quite happy to take advantage of that".

"A little bit disappointed after losing the final but it's been a good week", Otaegui said after being denied a third European Tour title.

His victory was the first by New Zealander on the European Tour since Danny Lee won the 2009 Johnnie Walker Classic as an amateur.

Fox only just survived his opening round match of today's six hole knockout matches against rising Asian star Jazz Janewattananond but with wins against Kristoffer Reitan of Norway, good friend Paul Dunne of Ireland and finally Otageui he completed an impressive first European Tour victory and for that matter his first in a Tier One event on the Australasian Tour. "I went from low to up during the week, so that's good as well, that's a good feeling", Otaegui added.

After all the excitement of the early matches and controversy of multiple players having putters stolen overnight before the match play, the final six hole match of the innovative tournament was somewhat anticlimactic.

From my perspective, our relationship has always been defined by mutual respect, candour and an honest desire to work together. Butts penned parting words for Wilson-Raybould in his public resignation letter as well.

"Wasn't too hard a switch in the end (from stroke play to match play)".

Fox won his first three holes of the final and it was all over nearly before it had begun.

"There was some scrappy stuff in there, but I got out of trouble when I needed to and I played great today in the final", he said. "New Zealand Open, I've got a few weeks off after that but I'm sure over the next few weeks I'll get a chance to sit down and rethink everything and set goals for the rest of the year".

Fox's last win was the Challenge Tour's Tayto Northern Ireland Open in July 2016, the timing of his latest win coming with only one slight downside. If not, it would be nice to have another Kiwi win the 100th New Zealand Open.

"Actually killed one of my speech jokes". I was looking at saying I was going to run my speech as a golf speech and say I haven't done one for a while and that my mates would give me a better stick about that, but they can't give me that anymore, which is quite nice. "Yeah, I've got some practise kissing a trophy as well, which was nice".
