DURANT — For the second time this season Southeastern Oklahoma State's Zach James has been named the Great American Conference Men's Golfer of the Week following his performance in an individual and team win at the Newman Fall Invitational to start the week.
James, a Whitesboro native, turned in his first title of the season, the second of his career, after carding rounds of 74, 70 and 70 to finish with a two-under-par 214.
He won the individual title by two strokes while lifting the Savage Storm to a one-stroke victory over Central Oklahoma as a team.
James is the sixth-ranked individual golfer in the nation statistically with a 69.11 stroke average and is averaging a 2.56-under-par score per round. He has a season-best round of 65 and is among the nation's leaders with three eagles and 43 birdies.
He has helped lift Southeastern to 15th nationally with a team average round of 72.89.
The Savage Storm will be back in action Oct. 16-17 when it heads to Wichita Falls for the Midwestern State Invitational.
