Wildcat freshman claims 5 and 4 win


TUCSON, Ariz. - University of Arizona men’s golfer Ben Fox won his individual match and helped the United States extend its lead Friday at the USA China Friendship Cup at Oak Valley Country Club in Beaumont, Calif.


Fox, a sophomore-to-be from Studio City, Calif., was one of six team USA members to win individual matches Friday.  Two other matches halved to give the U.S. a 12-6 lead after two rounds.  Team USA held a three-point lead after the first round.


Fox downed China’s Hu Mu 5 and 4 in singles play.  He birdied the final three holes to close out the match.  Fox’s win was one of four consecutive victories for the U.S.


The bi-annual Friendship Cup features 12-person teams made up of eight men and four women.  All players on the U.S. team completed their freshman seasons in 2005-06.


Saturday’s final round begins at 1:40 p.m. PDT.
