Fox, List and English start strong at Torrey Pines

Posted: Updated:

LA JOLLA, Cal. (WRCB) -- Steven Fox made his PGA Tour debut Thursday morning at famed Torrey Pines, but the University of Tennessee at Chattanooga golfer wasn't the only player with local ties making waves on the West Coast.

Ringgold native and former Baylor School star Luke List shot a 6-under par 66 to stand in a tie for second through the opening round of the Farmers Insurance Open.

List just missed an eagle putt on his final hole that would have tied him for the lead, but finished with four birdies and an eagle to tie the best single-round score of his rookie season on tour. He is one of eight golfers sitting one shot behind leaders Brandt Snedeker and K.J. Choi.

Fellow Baylor School grad Harris English is also in the mix after opening with a 4-under 68. English is tied for 20th entering Friday's second round after carding three birdies and an eagle to go with one bogey on Thursday.

Fox is also in position to make the cut after opening with a round of 2-under 70. The UTC senior, who earned entry into the event by winning the 2012 U.S. Amateur Championship, finished his first professional round with five birdies and three bogeys to tie for 57th through the first 18 holes.

The low 70 scores after Friday's second round will make the cut.
