Augusta James is in contention again. The Symetra Tour member from Bath, Ontario is coming off a recent win on the NWGA (National Women’s Golf Association) Tour in California.
Playing another event on the tour this week, across the country in Florida, she is just a shot off the lead after round one.
The PING staff tour professional and member of the Golf Canada Young Pro Squad had five birdies against two bogies at the Deltona Club in Deltona, Florida for a round of 69 (-3).
That places her in a share of second place, one back of leader Kendall Wright, with 36 holes to play.
This week James has a guest caddy, Jim Burlington, the Operations Manager at her home club in Bath, the Loyalist Country Club. He seems to be doing alright so far.
