Fox Fires 70 At Farmers Insurance Open, Tied With Former Major Winners

Thursday, January 24, 2013
LA JOLLA, Calif. --- Chattanooga Mocs senior Steven Fox (Hendersonville, Tenn.) got off to a solid start in his PGA Tour debut with a two-under par 70. He is tied for 57th playing the Farmers Insurance Open at Torrey Pines.

Fox played the North Course today carding five birdies, 10 pars and three bogeys. After a bogey on the par four 15th dropped him back to even par, the reigning U.S. Amateur Champ finished birdie-par-birdie for his 70.

He is in pretty heady company at minus two.
Former major winners Angel Cabrera (U.S. Open & Masters), Keegan Bradley (PGA) and Y.E. Yang (PGA) also shot 70. Bradley also traversed the north trace, while Cabrera and Yang played the well-known South Course.

Fox tees off at 2 p.m., Eastern Time on Friday. He is playing with former Florida All-American Billy Horschel (66) and Donald Constable (75). The trio opens on No. 10 on the South Course.

Parking Discrimination Downtown

Many taxpayers who reside in Chattanooga (but outside Chattanooga's core) feel left behind when it comes to neighborhood paving, sidewalks, policing, streetscaping, street sweeping, public transportation, and other services. Some think most tax dollars are spent on downtown and not in their neighborhoods. It's not as if they can't vicariously experience the largesse of downtown. ... (click for more)

Don't Squander The 2016 Election Opportunity

I specifically mean the last two ... (click for more)
