Augusta James and the NC State Canadian Wolfpack Golfers

When Augusta James was in Grade 8, she thought that one day she would earn a golf scholarship in the US. Her parents, who are both golfers, must have thought the same thing as she was born in 1993 on the first day of the Master's Golf tournament and aptly named Augusta. James is one of several Canadians who are either currently playing golf or have played golf at NC State University. James is also a member of the Golf Canada program over the last 4 years and is from Bath, Ontario.
