Professional golfer Ryan Fox, of Beachlands, clinched the Alfred Dunhill Links Championship at the Old Course at St Andrews at the weekend, the biggest victory of his career.

Fox paid tribute to the late Australian cricket star Shane Warne who he has played alongside at this event.

He finished on a four-under 68 to finish on 15-under for a one-shot win to pocket around $1.4 million.

It is his third win on the DP World Tour and second this year. His efforts at the weekend have propelled him to a record high 25th in the official world golf rankings, up from 47th.

Fox said on social media after the win, “This one is special, getting a win at the home of golf with the family watching can’t be beaten.

“@dunhilllinks truly is a an amazing event and can’t be prouder to be the champ this year . This one is for you @shanewarne23 I know you were there looking down this week.”

Before the tournament he posted, “Enjoying being back in Scotland for the @dunhilllinks one of our best weeks of the year.

“A week this year that has more than a tinge of sadness, will be really missing my playing partner and mate @shanewarne23 So many great memories with him at this event, and I know he is here in spirit with everyone this week.”
