FRANKLIN, Tenn. — UTC senior Steven Fox has won the Tennessee Golf Association’s Amateur Player of the Year award.

Fox won after a successful summer schedule that culminated with a win at the 112th U.S. Amateur Championship at legendary Cherry Hills in Colorado. Fox qualified locally for the U.S. Amateur Public Links Championship, then started his summer as a semi-finalist in the Tennessee Match Play Championship.

At the APL, Fox advanced to the quarterfinals before being eliminated. Next he advanced to the first round of the Tennessee Four-Ball Championship before making his way to Colorado for the U.S. Amateur.

There, Fox survived a playoff to advance to match play, won five matches, and then rallied from two down with two to play to win the championship on the 37th hole. Fox played on the record setting U.S. squad at the World Amateur Team Championship and will represent the U.S. again at the Copas de las Americas in January.
