Auckland golfer Ryan Fox was outgunned on the back nine but will still head to the New Zealand Open next week with plenty of confidence after a runner-up finish at the Queensland PGA Championship.

The big-hitting Fox took a one-shot lead into the fourth and final round of the PGA Tour of Australasia event, but could do little to stop Australian Anthony Summers march to his first professional victory at the City Golf Club in Toowoomba.

Fox’s three-under par 67 wasn’t a bad round, and took him to 21-under for the tournament, but Summers was unstoppable on the back nine, carding four birdies and an incredible eagle.

Summers’ seven-under 63 saw him finish at 24-under par and claim a comfortable three-shot win over Fox.

He clinched the win with an eagle two at the par-four 16th, holing out with his second shot from the rough underneath some trees.

Australian David Bransdon was third at 19-under, having carded a 62 in the final round.

Kiwi No 1 Mike Hendry (64) and Mark Brown 68) were the next best of the New Zealanders, sharing 14th place at 11-under..
