New Zealand golfer Ryan Fox closed with a 14-foot birdie putt for a 6-under 64 and a share of the second-round lead with Robert MacIntyre in the RBC Canadian Open.

Finishing on the front nine at Hamilton Golf and Country Club, Fox birdied the par-5 fourth and par-4 fifth, then rebounded from a bogey on the par-3 sixth with the birdie on the par-4 ninth.


The 37-year-old is aiming for his first win in 47 career PGA TOUR starts.

“I drove it great, I hit may irons really well and had a few more putts drop today,” said Fox who started his round on the back nine with birdies on the 10th, 12th, 14th and 16th.

On the front nine her birdied the fourth and fifth, but bogeyed the sixth before his dramatic finish to the round on the ninth.

“It could have been really silly, but I still had a lot of good putts.”

MacIntyre had a 66 in the morning for his second straight bogey-free round. The 27-year-old Scottish left-hander is winless in 44 career PGA TOUR starts.

Meanwhile at the women's US Open Lydia Ko has had a rare miss of the cut finishing at 13 over, alongside retiring great Lexi Thompson.

However fellow Kiwi Amelia Garvey made the cut at seven over and is tied 45th.

She carded a second round 71 featuring four bogeys and third birdies.

The leader is Wichanee Meechai from Thailand at four under.
