It’s getting to be old hat for Austin James.

For the third time this year the Bath, Ontario (Loyalist G&CC) golfer and junior at Charleston Southern University has been named the NCAA Big South Conference Men’s Golfer of the Week.

Last weekend James tamed a tough Dunes Golf Club in Myrtle Beach, South Carolina on his way to a 3rd place finish at the General Hackler Championship. He recorded rounds of  71, 70, and 69 for a -7 total on the 7,233-yard course.

Within his three rounds the former Canadian Junior Boys’ Champion had 16 birdies and helped his team to a 8th place finish in the 15-team field.

It was the sixth time this year that James has finished in the top ten individually.

James and his Bucs team will tee it up again for their next event on April 3-5 at The Hootie at Bulls Bay in Awendaw, S.C.
