AUGUSTA, Ga. --- It’s the first official day of Masters Week 2013 and Chattanooga Mocs senior Steven Fox (Hendersonville, Tenn.) is certainly soaking it all in. He’s providing a diary for Masters.com while his caddy, former Mocs star Ben Rickett, is keeping tabs with the Chattanooga Times Free Press for one as well.
UTC golf publicist Jim Horten chronicles the week here daily. Links to stories around the web on Fox and Chattanooga ties are below. We’ll also take a look at Fox’s favorite moments, holes and his thoughts as well.
THE INSIDE SCOOP – CROWDS ARE “COOL”
“Awesome,” Fox said about teeing off on the first hole. By the way, get used to the word because it sums up this experience for him in every way.
“When we walked up to the first hole and saw the crowd, I told T.J. (Vogel) this is going to be fun. I love playing in front of a crowd and the patrons here are great. We got to joke and interact with each other, it makes this week even more special.”
And now for a bevy of links to keep up with all of Fox’s activity:

Entry four was written after yesterday’s practice round. He and his partner beat Keegan Bradley and Jason Dufner in friendly match play. Oh yeah, his partner was Phil Mickelson. Per Rickett, there was plenty of trash talk between the four.
