Riverside Freshman Skyler Fox Wins 2016 WPIAL 2-A Golf Title
September 29, 2016
Despite his youth, Riverside's Skyler Fox showed no signs of freshman nerves, as he made par on the 18th hole to secure the 2016 WPIAL Boys Class 2A Individual Championship. Fox, who also had the best qualifying round last week, shot a two-over 72 to claim gold at Allegheny Country Club in Sewickley.
Holding a one stroke lead entering the tee box on the par-4 final hole, Fox hit his drive to the right of the fairway, into the rough. He produced a spectacular second shot that found the green, though, which allowed him two opportunities with the putter. Although his first attempt on a downhill lie traveled past the cup, Fox sank a short uphill putt to conclude his incredible round. He shot a 36 on both the front and back nine.
