James Ross Named The American Men's Golfer of the Week

April 16, 2014

HOUSTON - A day after tying for second overall and helping lead the University of Houston Men's Golf program to a third-place team finish, senior James Ross was honored Wednesday afternoon as the American Athletic Conference Golfer of the Week.

Although rain shortened the Reunion Intercollegiate to 36 holes over two days, it did little to damper Ross' consistency. The Edinburgh, Scotland, native fired back-to- back, even-par 72 on the 7,305-yard course at Reunion Golf and Country Club in Madison, Miss., to equal his best finish since joining the Cougars in time for the 2010-11 season.

This is the first weekly award for Ross during his career. However, he became the second Cougar to win the program's third award after junior Roman Robledo collected similar honors earlier this season.

In 2013-14, Ross ranks second among the Cougars with a 72.04 scoring average and stands third on the team with 14 rounds of par or better. He has posted six top-10 finishes this year and was ranked at No. 9 for Team Europe in the April 2 Palmer Cup rankings.

In late March, he sat out of his collegiate schedule to compete for Scotland on Team Europe vs. Team Asia/Pacific during an international friendly match for the Sir Michael Bonallack Trophy in Bangalore, India.


UP NEXT
Ross and his Houston teammates start postseason play when they compete at the American Athletic Conference Championships on April 27-29 at Innisbrook Resort and Golf Club at Palm Harbor, Fla.
