Fox profiled in new European Tour video series
The European Tour has launched a brand new video series called Roots.
The documentaries are said to showcase the “different European Tour stars and the unique environments in which they grew up and learned to love the game of golf.”
Each episode will speak to the player along with their families, friends, coaches and look at the places that helped make them the golfers they are today.
The first episode heads Down Under and across the Tasman to New Zealand for a look at the life and career of Ryan Fox.
Fox comes from an incredible sporting lineage with his grandfather Merv Wallace playing first-class cricket for New Zealand for close to two decades while his father, Grant Fox, played for the All Blacks from 1984 to 1993 and was a part of the winning World Cup side in 1987.

“I was excited when the European Tour approached me with the opportunity to become the first guy to be featured in the new Roots series,” said Fox.
“I’m very proud of my heritage in New Zealand and the sporting history on both sides of my family so it was great to be given the chance to show that and be involved in the start of an interesting new project.”
While the 33-year-old turned pro at the ripe old age of 25, he has made up for lost time claiming the 2019 ISPS Handa World Super 6 Perth along with the QLD PGA and WA Open titles and two Challenge Tour wins along the way.
His win in Perth at the European Tour co-sanctioned event also helped earn him enough to take out the Australasian PGA Tour Order Of Merit last year and all the spoils that go along with it including entries into last week’s WGC-Mexico Championship, The Open Championship and the WGC-HSBC Champions event in China.
He finished a respectable T29 in Mexico and took home US$73,500 in the no-cut tournament to add to an impressive European Tour career total of €3.7 million.
