SPARTANBURG, S.C. --- Chattanooga Mocs junior Steven Fox (Hendersonville, Tenn.) was named the Southern Conference Golfer of the Week today by the league office. It is the second time in his career that Fox has received the honor.
Fox finished tied for 14th at the LSU National Invitational over the weekend. He shot four-over par 220 with rounds of 75, 73 and 72. He tied one nationally-ranked performer and beat two others including top 15 teammate Stephan Jaeger (Munich, Germany).
Steven has shot the Mocs' low number in four of the last five events. It was his fifth top 20, fourth top 15, of the season. He birdied three of his last four holes to complete his level-par card of 72 in the final round.
It marks back-to-back weeks that a UTC student-athlete has garnered the honor. Jaeger won last week for his play at the Linger Longer Invite. Fox is the 12th honoree all-time (award started in 2001) for Chattanooga.
The Mocs open Southern Conference Championship play Sunday, April 15. The 54-hole, three-day event runs through Tuesday, April 17. Live scoring is available on GoMocs.com via the men's golf schedule page.
