CHATTANOOGA, Tenn. --- Chattanooga Mocs senior Steven Fox (Hendersonville, Tenn.) is in Atlanta, Ga., for Thursday’s Georgia Cup match with British Amateur Champion Alan Dunbar. It is part of a very busy week for Fox who was named Southern Conference Golfer of the Week by the league office Wednesday.
Fox is coming off a runner-up finish at the BancorpSouth Intercollegiate at Reunion Golf and Country Club in Madison, Miss., Monday and Tuesday. He fired a career-best eight-under par 208 with rounds of 69, 69 and 70 to end up two shots behind Central Arkansas’ James Newton at minus 10.
It was a remarkably consistent 54 holes for the reigning United States Amateur Champion. He carded 10 birdies, 42 pars and a mere two bogeys over the 7,305-yard tract.
