New Zealander Ryan Fox matched his career-lowest round to take a two-shot lead at the Ras Al Khaimah Classic on Thursday. His 9-under 63 matched last week's course record at Al Hamra Golf Club.

"It was nice to get in the zone, I just felt like I had control of the golf ball."

Fox missed the cut at last week's Ras Al Khaimah Championship due to a back injury but appears to have recovered.

“I probably need to throw a couple of thanks out too, I struggled last week here with my back and I have my physio out here, and the Tour physio has helped me out over the weekend and I feel 100 per cent this week which was nice."

“Shaun Norris was nice enough to give me a putting tip on Tuesday when we played a practice round together and that seemed to work pretty well too so big shout-out to those guys.

“I hit it in the greenside trap a couple of times and got up and down. It is the kind of golf course where you feel like you’ve got a lot of opportunities and it was nice to take advantage of those today and then hole a couple of longer putts on some of the tougher holes to keep the round going.

“I worked hard today on just focusing on every shot, obviously my body felt a bit better today than last week, I felt like I could do what I wanted to do and I wasn’t fighting it so hopefully I wake up tomorrow feeling good and I can keep doing what I’m doing.”

Ricardo Gouveia of Portugal lies in second place at 7-under.
