Ryan Fox is back in the winners’ circle after claiming victory at the BMW PGA Championship thanks to a grandstand finish on Wentworth’s famous finishing hole.

The New Zealander would get off to a rocky start with a triple bogey on the third, but he recovered to hole eight birdies – including a fine up-and-down at 18, to reach 18-under-par.

There were glimmers of hope from the rest of the field, including Aaron Rai, who lipped out for an eagle at the last, and Tyrrell Hatton, who was leading until the 15th where he would hit his tee shot out of bounds. The English pair would ultimately finish one short of their rival, with a host of the Ryder Cup team also in the top ten. 

Fox’s stats were hugely impressive all week, with a scoring average of 67.5 per round, as well as averaging 303 yards off the tee and 65% greens in regulation for the week, with his Srixon ZX MK II driver and ZX5 and ZX7 MK II irons in fine form. 

But what stood out the most all week was his putting. With 1.51 putts per green in regulation, averaging 24.50 putts per round, 9.75 one-putts per round, and +1.33 in strokes gained putting, it was a putting masterclass with the Ping Anser 2D. 

None of this would have been possible if he didn’t have full faith in his equipment, so let’s check out the BMW PGA Championship winner’s full setup…
