Augusta James

SAN JACINTO, Calif. – Young Pro Squad member August James of Bath, Ont., captured a two-stroke victory at the National Women’s Golf Association (NWGA) event on Thursday at the Soboba Springs Golf Club.

James, 22, caught fire on the back nine of Thursday’s final round, posting four straight birdies to draw even on the day, leading her to victory over long-time friend and five-time Team Canada member Brittany Marchand of Orangeville, Ont.

Both graduates of N.C. State, James finished at even-par (72-72-72) for the two-stroke advantage over Marchand (71-74-73).

With the win, the 2014 Canadian Women’s Amateur champion takes home $1,500 (USD) to follow up on her T8 finish last week at the Symetra Tour season opener.
