Ryan Fox

Augusta, Georgia, USA

Quick Quotes

Q. Second Masters. Kind of coming back here, it's kind of a different feeling I'm sure. What do you see? What is different for you?

RYAN FOX: I mean, apart from the obvious couple changes on the golf course, it's nice to come back and maybe not be so over-awed by the whole experience; to come and know where everything is and how it kind of works.

I think last year it just felt like the week went so quick. It's like a whirlwind, and all of a sudden it's over. I was sick as well on the weekend which probably didn't help things in that regard.

This year I feel like I can -- for want of a better term -- take some time to smell the roses, go out and enjoy it, and have a bit of fun and enjoy being able to use this facility and have lunch with the family and various things.

I felt a bit rushed last year, so, yeah, this year has been good to be able to enjoy some things that Augusta offers us as players.

Q. Golf-wise, besides everything that happened, you made the cut, you were able in very difficult conditions, too. It's kind of like your aspirations for this week?

RYAN FOX: Yeah, I probably come in this week with fairly different form than I had last year. I played really well in the leadup apart from Valero the week before, but had played solid in The PLAYERS and Bay Hill and couple other events.

Really didn't -- played really nicely here and kind of scrapped it away on the weekend. I was pretty happy with the week overall. I feel like the game is certainly -- the form hasn't been there this year, but it's close. I think having a little bit of extra knowledge of the golf course is going to help a lot.

But there is kind of no expectations. Just go in and try to have some fun. I've been struggling with that a little bit this year. Feels like it's been really hard, really tough.

What better place to go out and have some fun than out here, and hopefully that translates into a good result.

Q. Being the only Kiwi in the majors for a while now, is that an extra pressure?

RYAN FOX: Yes and no. I mean, it's cool. We've had I think Dan Hillier has played a couple. They're the events you want to play. I've seen quite a few New Zealanders out here already supporting, which is really nice.

Yeah, look, it's an honor to be able to do it, and hopefully we get a few more in the majors in the years to come. Yeah, we always seem to have one or two guys there, Campbell there for a lot of years, and now myself, and before that Frank Nobilo and guys.

So, yeah, it's pretty cool as such a small country we can have a presence in these events, and I'm pretty happy it's me at the moment.

Q. And on the other side we have Lydia.

RYAN FOX: Yeah, Lydia has been a presence in women's golf for, what, the last decade or more now. What she's done has been incredible, and I know she has a huge following at home. It's nice to grab onto her coattails a little bit and add a little bit more on the men's side.

Yeah, what she's done for golf in New Zealand is just amazing. Hopefully she can get that one extra point she needs to lock up the LPGA Hall of Fame. I know she's pushing pretty hard for that.
