Bath, Ont. product Augusta James capped a busy few days by Monday qualifying for the LPGA’s Bank of Founders Cup, running later this week from March 16-19.

The long-standing Team Canada athlete—and current Young Pro Squad member—dialed in a 7-under 65 to finish atop the 83-player field. She was joined by American Kaylin Yost as the two competitors to earn their spots at Wildfire Golf Club.

James, who currently holds partial status on the LPGA Tour, aims to play her way into events through Monday qualifiers where her schedule permits. She’s coming off one day’s rest, having finished T18 at the Symetra Tour season opener which concluded on Sunday.

She’s set to tee it up with fellow Canadians Brooke Henderson, Alena Sharp, Maude-Aimee Leblanc and Jennifer Ha.
