Beachlands’ pro golfer Ryan Fox finished the US Open tied for 41st at the weekend.
He delivered a final round five-over (total 14 over), 13 shots behind winner Brooks Koepka.
Fox led the field in driving distance over the four rounds, edging out Koepka with an average distance of 3.18.80, media reported. The 31-year-old earned US$43,028 (NZ$62,119).
“It was a tough but enjoyable experience at my first US Open,” Fox said.
“Shinnecock was a brutal test of every part of your game, but certainly one of the best courses I’ve played. A bit of a frustrating Sunday, but happy with the way I hung in there over the four days.”
He is heading back to the UK for a couple of days’ rest before heading to Paris for the HNA Open de France which tees off on June 28.
