NZ Newswire logoNZ Newswire 13/02/2017

Ryan Fox will have accomplished Kiwi caddy Steve Williams on his bag for the New Zealand Open in Queenstown.

New Zealand No.2 Fox has confirmed he will contest the tournament at Millbrook Resort and The Hills March 9-12.

He will link with Williams, the former bagman of golfing great Tiger Woods, who has reduced his workload in recent years.

European Tour regular Fox is looking forward to the one-off partnership.

"Steve is the best caddy in the world having worked with greats like Greg Norman, he was 10 years with Tiger Woods and then with Adam Scott and got him to world number one," he said.

Williams has supported Fox on his professional journey, giving him advice and sorting a practice round with Adam Scott at the 2015 British Open.

Fox, who has made the cut in his first four tournaments on the European Tour, will compete at a "Super 6" event in Perth next week and two tournaments in South Africa before teeing off in Queenstown.
