Min Woo Lee – continues his impressive European Tour season.
West Australian Min Woo Lee and New Zealand’s Ryan Fox have both recorded to four finishes at the Estrella Damm Andalucia Masters at the Real Club Valderrama in Sotogrande in Spain.
Lee finished joint runner-up and three shots behind the winner, Matt Fitzpatrick, while Fox was another shot back and in a seven-way tie for 4th.
Lee was on track to challenge for the lead midway through his final round but three bogeys in four holes through the middle of his round on the demanding Valderrama layout cost him the chance for his second win of the season.
The €249,000 ($A 390,000) however has moved him 4 places to 6th in the Race to Dubai standings, much of that as a result of his win at the Scottish Open and another impressive effort this week.
Only Collin Morikawa, Billy Horschel, Jon Rahm, Tyrrell Hatton and Matt Fitzpatrick stand ahead of Lee on the star studded Race to Dubai list.
Fox recorded his best finish of 2021 when he recovered from a third round of 74 for a 2 under 69 today and improved 6 places from his overnight share of 12th although a bogey at the last would prove very costly given the number of golfers, he eventually shared his 4th placing with.
Fox earned €93,000 ($A 145,000) for his effort, however, his biggest cheque of the year for just his second top ten and moves him to 74th in the Race to Dubai rankings although indications earlier in the week were that Fox will play only one more event this season.
