New Zealand golfer Ryan Fox has had a horrid final 12 holes of the third round at the Masters in Augusta.

The last last dozen holes featured six bogeys, a triple bogey and just the one birdie.

Fox four-putted on the 17th green to score a seven on the par-four hole to put himself out of contention followed by a bogey on the 18th to finish the round after what had been a fantastic opening three holes.


The day had started brilliantly for Fox, who was as high as fourth on the leaderboard after after birdies on each of his first three holes.

He parred the next three before a run of four successive bogeys from the seventh hole struggling to then find the greens and going from four under to four over and tied 26th after carding a 77.

American Scottie Scheffler birdied his final hole to lead at seven under, one shot ahead of countryman Collin Morikawa.

Tiger Woods shot the worst round of his major championship career, an 82 to be 11 over and tied 52nd.
