WHEREAS, when Gregor Meyer won the WPIAL Boys 3-A Golf Title last year, he had just come off a less than average showing the year before by not qualifying for this event; and,

 

WHEREAS, with hard work and determination and a gift for the game of golf, Gregor Meyer, a sophomore at Fox Chapel High School, became a big part of the Foxes’ success on the links this season. His individual accomplishment highlighted an outstanding season for himself and for his Fox Chapel Golf Team; and,

 

WHEREAS, Gregor Meyer captured the WPIAL Boys 3-A Golf Title by shooting the only under par score of the day, a 70 on the par - 71  course at Oakmont Country Club, the site of the U.S. Open last summer. Citing the best round of his career, he had 3 birdies and 2 bogeys, sunk two 60 foot puts on par threes, all good for a -1 and a WPIAL crown and stated that following Dustin Johnson around Oakmont for the Open gave him the opportunity to know the course a little better; and,

 

WHEREAS, Gregor has been playing golf since he was 8 years old and also plays basketball at Fox Chapel H.S.; he is a Steeler fan, claims Dustin Johnson and Jason Day as his favorite golfers, hasn’t had a hole-in-one yet, likes Stone Harbor for a vacation spot and one day hopes to go to Ireland; and,
