Augusta James

Just four tournaments into her career as a professional golfer, Augusta James is a winner. James took the trophy at the Chico's Patty Berg Memorial on the Symetra Tour, which finished in Ft. Myers, Florida, on April 19.

James, from Canada, got off to a terrible start after leaving North Carolina State University to turn pro: She was DQ'd from her first Symetra Tour event, the Gateway Classic.

This is a nice way to recover! James finished 56th in her second start and 30th in her third. And now, in her fourth, she's the champion.

James carded rounds of 69-70-72-67 for a total of 10-under par 278, beating runners-up Brianna Do and Laura Kueny by four strokes.

Augusta, age 21, won the 2014 Canadian Women’s Amateur one week before her brother, Austin, won the Canadian Junior Boys Championship. This makes them, Golfweek reported, "the first siblings in Golf Canada history to win national titles in the same year."

James was the Freshman of the Year in the ACC in 2012, an All-America selection in 2013 and 2014, and the MVP of the N.C. State golf team three years running.

LPGA Golfers Enjoy the Bahamas Beachside and Poolside

Social media gives us a glimpse into the lives of professional golfers the likes of which we could never have gotten a mere 10 years ago. One word tells you all you need to know: "selfie." And when LPGA players visit a tournament site such as, say the Bahamas, selfies sometimes involve bikinis and other swimsuits. The LPGA Tour plays this week at the Pure Silk Bahamas LPGA Classic. They are staying at the Atlantis Resort, which has a bevy of pools and other water features for them to enjoy; and are also right on the beach. Make that "beaches," since the resort is surrounded by sand and ocean, too. Below are a few of the swimsuit selfies LPGA golfers have shared on their social media accounts this week. First, Danielle Kang: Here are two showing Hee Young Park (left) and her sister Ju Young Park. Ju Young is an LPGA rookie in 2015.
