Fox carded an even-par 71 in his third round to drop six places to a tie for 14th at eight-under par eight shots behind the leader, Italy's Renato Paratore.

He had been tied for eighth place, just three shots off the lead, after two rounds - a better result than fellow New Zealander Michael Campbell who missed yesterday's cut after carding a round of 80 which included eight bogeys and a double bogey.

This week's British Masters is Fox's first tournament since February after a Covid-19 enforced break.
