Golf: Riverside's Fox stuns defending champ at boys 2A final

Written by Joe Koch on .

Riverside freshman Skyler Fox achieved a feat that many would consider remarkable when he won the WPIAL Class 2A boys golf championship Thursday at Allegheny Country Club. For Fox, though, it's just another step in a solid path that began well before he started his high school career with the Panthers.

Fox's 2-foot putt on the 18th hole allowed him to save par and earn a 1-stroke victory over Jason Li, the defending champion and Sewickley Academy senior, and South Park junior Tyler Brinker by one stroke.

The result allowed the three players along with 13 other players to advance to the PIAA Western Regional, which will be played on Oct. 17.

Fox is used to high-pressure events. Among his accomplishments were the regional championship a year ago in the Drive, Chip and Putt tournament at Oakmont Country Club that allowed him to compete this past spring in the national final this past spring at Augusta National in the run-up to The Masters. It was the first time a freshman had won the Class 2A title since 2010 when Serra Catholic's Max Kaminsky accomplished the feat.
