Busy Summer for Houston Cougar Golfer James Ross

Senior golfer James Ross

July 26, 2012

HOUSTON - University of Houston senior golfer James Ross has had a busy summer and recently saw impressive results for all his hard work on the course and in the classroom.

Earlier this month, Ross won the individual championship at the Sutherland Chalice at Dumfries and Galloway Golf Club in his native Scotland. Competing at home during his summer break, he posted back-to-back 68s in the second and third rounds of the 72-hole event and finished at 4-under-par 276, one stroke ahead of Ross Bell.

Ross, who hails from Edinburgh, opened and closed the tournament with even-par rounds of 70.


CLEVELAND GOLF/SRIXON ALL-AMERICA SCHOLAR
On Wednesday, he was recognized as a Cleveland Golf/Srixon All-America Scholar, one of 146 student-athletes nationwide to be so honored.

To be eligible for this award, an individual must be a junior or senior academically, compete at least three years at the collegiate level, participate in 70 percent of his team's competitive rounds or compete at the NCAA Championships, have a stroke average under 76.0 and maintain a cumulative grade-point average of 3.2 or higher.

A recipient must also be of high moral character and be in good standing at his university.


AT HOUSTON
Ross joined the Cougars for the 2011-12 season as a transfer from Michigan State and made an immediate impact at Houston. He competed in all but one team tournament and finished second on the team with a 73.13 scoring average and 13 rounds of par or better.

With a 64 in the second round of the Royal Oaks Intercollegiate in Dallas on Oct. 31, Ross became only the fourth player in Cougar history to post an 18-hole score that low. It was the second-lowest second-round score recorded by any Cougar in any tournament.

He finished with four top-10 finishes a year ago, including a second-place showing at the Fighting Irish Gridiron Classic in the second fall tournament of the season.
