Fox was solid, but unspectacular as he mixed three birdies with three bogeys for an even par round of 71.

He remains one under for the tournament in a tie for 12th, six shots back of the leader, American Kevin Kisner.

Kisner finished the day at eight under par after shooting a one over 72 to lead compatriot Chris Stroud and Japan's Hideki Matsuyama by one.

He had got the lead to 10 under par at one point, but a double bogey on the par-4 16th and a bogey in his closing hole brought him back to the field.
