She finished strong but it was not quite enough for Augusta James. The Bath, Ontario pro finished in a share of 14th place at the Symetra Tour Championship over the past weekend after closing with a round of 66 (-5) in Longwood, Florida.

Rounds of 72,68,73 and 66 earned James (USD) $3226.00 in her 22nd and final event of the Symetra Tour season. It was a consistent year for the former Canadian Women’s Amateur champion as she missed just three cuts and had seven top-ten finishes.

Unfortunately her season long money total of $63,547 was $4,030 short of the tenth place spot on the tour’s Volvik Race For The Card, the final position that earned a place on the LPGA TOUR for 2017.

James finished in 13th place on the tour’s final money list. It earns her direct entry into¬†Stage III of the LPGA Qualifying Tournament at LPGA International Golf Club in Daytona Beach, Florida, beginning November 30th.
