New Zealand's Ryan Fox paid tribute to late cricket great Shane Warne as he won golf's Alfred Dunhill Links Championship by one stroke on the Old Course at St Andrews on Sunday.

The tournament, played over three Scottish venues, with Carnoustie and Kingsbarns, the other courses, features a pro-am team element and last year Fox finished second with former Australia leg-spinner Warne, who died in March aged 52.

"To be honest the only person I can really think of at the moment is Warne," said Fox.

"He meant a lot to me and this event. He was a great mate. It's a terrible shame he's not here," added the 35-year-old son of former New Zealand rugby star Grant Fox.
