ORLANDO, Fla. – Team Canada Young Pro Squad member Augusta James recorded a one-stroke victory on Wednesday at the National Women’s Golf Association (NWGA) event contested on the Dubsdread Golf Course.
James, a 22-year-old Bath, Ont., native, finished the tournament at 1-under (73-70-66) for the come-from-behind victory over Jenni Jenq of Saratoga, Calif. Her final round score of 66 (-4) was the tournament low, catapulting the N.C. State graduate into position to lock up the victory.
Richmond Hill, Ont., natives and Team Canada graduates Elizabeth Tong and Rebecca Lee-Bentham were also in action, finishing T8 and 17th, respectively.
The win marks James’ second win on the NWGA Tour—she collected a win back in February at the Soboba Springs Golf Club in San Jacinto, Calif. In addition to her victories, James added a T2 finish two weeks back in Deltona, Fla.
The string of strong results on the NWGA Tour are a means to keep her game sharp during a break in the Symetra Tour schedule.
James will look to keep things rolling when the Symetra Tour kicks off again at Florida’s Natural Charity Classic from Apr. 8–10. She will be joined by Young Pro Squad teammate and defending champion, Sue Kim of Langley, B.C.
