Fox Chapel’s Gregor Meyer Wins WPIAL Boys 3-A Golf Title

Gregor Meyer did not play in the WPIAL Individual Golf Championships at the Triple-A level last year. He was the 11th worst qualifier by score for a qualifying round to head to hollowed Oakmont Country Club for the Boy’s 3A Individual Golf Championship, Tuesday, Oct. 4. When all was said and done, the sophomore out of Fox Chapel High School shot the only under par score of the day, a 70 on the par-71 course, good for a -1 and a WPIAL crown.

Meyer was in great shape, really from the outset. He said after his round, once with a lead that looked safe in the clubhouse that he just tried to go out and play, but admitted to some nerves and adrenaline as he approached the narrow fairway of the first hole at Oakmont. Through 14 holes, Meyer was -3. He made bogey on both the 15th and 17th holes, before making par on 18 to round out his day.

Meyer edged a pair of players, Pittsburgh Central Catholic sophomore Jimmy Meyers, and Hampton junior Justin Griffith, both of whom shot +3 74’s. Peters Township’s Hunter Bruce, who won the 2015 Triple-A Boys Individual Championship at SouthPointe, finished tied for sixth with three other players with a five-over 76 at Oakmont.

Weather conditions were ideal for the golfers at Oakmont at the tough, world-renowned course. Some of the golfers played practice rounds at the course Sunday, prior to the event, but those were unscheduled by the WPIAL and Oakmont. Those golfers said the greens played a bit faster today at the event, but the course conditions were tough, as expected.

The top 14 finishers advanced to the PIAA Western Regional qualifier.
