UTC's Fox 16th At All-American Golf Classic

Tuesday, November 20, 2012
Chattanooga Mocs senior Steven Fox (Hendersonville, Tenn.) ended up tied for 16th at the Western Refining College All-American Classic at El Paso Country Club. Fox tied Oklahoma’s Will Kropp at five-under par 208.

The duo ended up nine strokes behind this year’s champion, Kevin Penner of UNLV. Penner shot rounds of 65, 66 and 68 for his 14-under 199. That provided him with a one-shot win over Sebastian Cappelen (Arkansas) and two strokes clear of defending champion Corey Whitsett (Alabama).

Fox opened the event shooting 70 and 67 over the opening 36 holes Monday. That placed him tied for seventh. A level par 71 dropped him into his tie for 16th.

He posted 13 birdies over his 54 holes with five in the final round. Fox added 34 pars to counteract six bogeys and one double. He had a perfect second round with four birdies and 14 pars.

Fox gained entry in the 23-man field by virtue of his United States Amateur win in August. The field is comprised almost entirely of 2012 All-Americans who are still playing collegiately.

The Mocs return to the course in February 22-24 for the Redstone Collegiate Championship in Humble, Texas. The 54-hole event is played on the Redstone Golf Club Tournament Course which is the site of the PGA Tour’s Shell Houston Open.
