Beginning his second round after his -3 on the opening day, Fox started brightly with back-to-back birdies on the first and second holes, before a bogey on the fourth saw the Kiwi lose ground on the leaders.

Another birdie on the eighth meant Fox finished his front nine with a score of -2.

Beginning the back nine though, Fox was under pressure straight away, with a bogey on the 10th, before saving face with another birdie on the 16th to finish at -2 for the second round.

The second round sees Fox at -5 for the tournament so far, making the cut by two shots.

Fox trails leader Robert Rock by eight shots going forward into the rest of the tournament.
