The European circuit has come under fire for the strengthened agreement, which will see the ten best players earn PGA Tour cards each year – but Fox disagrees.
“There’s a chance we’ll lose ten of our best guys to the PGA Tour but that’s been happening anyway.
We’ve always been an unofficial feeder tour and the best players, like Tyrrell [Hatton] and Tommy [Fleetwood], have all moved over and play the majority of their golf there.
“It can only be good going forward that we’ve got more eyes on guys who have come through the DP World Tour.
“The fact we’re now an official pathway is a chance for us to get some of the guys from other tours who would otherwise go through the Korn Ferry Tour to come here and try to get in that way. It’s going to strengthen the tour.”
Ryan Fox wife
New Zealand’s top-ranked golfer Ryan Fox has capped a busy month by marrying his long-time partner Anneke.

Top Kiwi golfer Ryan Fox has announced the birth of a baby daughter.
Fox announced on Christmas Eve that he and wife Anneke had welcomed a baby girl into the world on December 18.
The new arrival is the first child for the pair who married on the picturesque Rakino Island in March last year.
Ryan Fox reeled off five birdies and an eagle on the back nine to take the first-round lead at the Nedbank Golf Challenge in South Africa on Friday and boost his hopes of overtaking Rory McIlroy in the European Tour rankings.
Fox opened his challenge at Sun City with an eight-under 64 for a one-shot lead over England’s Luke Donald.
McIlroy isn’t playing in the penultimate tournament of the season in Sun City and a victory would put Fox top of the rankings ahead of next week’s season-ending World Tour Championship in Dubai.
The New Zealander made three straight birdies on No 9, 10 and 11 and then added an eagle at No 14, a 600-yard par five.
He set himself up for that eagle with a 243-yard second shot with a seven iron to within four feet. He made two more birdies on his last two holes and is in the running for a third win on the tour this year.
His latest title came at the Alfred Dunhill Links Championship last month.
“I had a lot of good numbers out there, we managed to get the yardages right and I putted really nicely; but it still feels a bit strange – this golf course has kicked my arse several times before, so maybe it was just nice to me today and it’s going to come back and bite me tomorrow,” Fox told NZME.
