CHERRY HILLS VILLAGE — Michael Weaver was steady nearly all day, but Steven Fox wasn’t going away as the two battled to the last hole Sunday in what turned out to be a 37-hole final at the U.S. Amateur at Cherry Hills Country Club.
Fox, who was seeded 63rd in the 64-man match-play field, trailed by two with two holes to play, then won on the first playoff hole when Weaver faltered down the stretch.
Weaver hit driver on the first playoff hole, and went left and past the No. 1 green. Fox calmly sank his downhill 15-foot birdie putt for the playoff win.
“The whole week seems like a dream to me,” Fox said. “This is by far the coolest thing I’ve done.”
