Round 4 of the Scottish Open will begin tomorrow night and will only contain two Aussies, Min Woo Lee and Lucas Herbert but they are sadly out of contention being 9 and 11 shots behind leader Rory McIlroy on 13 under par.
Kiwi Ryan Fox (son of Rugby great Grant) won the prestigious BMW PGA tournament in Surrey England yesterday with a score of -18 over the four rounds. Tyrell Hatton of England was second a stroke back tied with Aaron Rai also of England. John Rahm from Spain finished 4th on -16 with Victor Hovland rounding out the top 5 on -15.
The Aussies were in contention for some time on the weekend with Adam Scott, Min Woo Lee and Jason Scrivener all challenging at some stage. Scott finished the best of the Aussies tied for 7th on -13 and Min Woo Lee was tied 14th on -11. Scrivener finished two shots back on -9.
For a while there Adam Scott and Min Woo Lee were only two shots from the lead but Hatton had five birdies in six holes to set up a four shot lead just after the turn. Fox though was relentless with six birdies on the back 9 and he was helped by Hatton who could only muster pars and a bogey on 15 for Fox to get the win.
It was a star studded field with most of the top 50 players there and all of the European Ryder Cup team.
This week it is the French Open where a lot of similar players will tee it up including Fox and Min Woo Lee. The field is not as strong though so these two should do well.
