GREENSBORO, N.C. – One day after winning his fourth collegiate individual title, Guilford senior James Mishoe was recognized as ODAC Men’s Golfer of the Week in an announcement from the league.
It marks the sixth time in his career that Mishoe has earned ODAC Men’s Golfer of the Week honors. He earned ODAC Men’s Golfer of the Week four times during the 2018-19 season (October 8, 2018 / October 22, 2018 / October 29, 2018 / April 22, 2019) and once in the 2017-28 campaign (March 19, 2018).
Mishoe earned his fourth individual crown on Tuesday, March 9th, when he captured The Savannah Invitational with a 13-under-par score of 203 (65-67-71). It is the second win in as many seasons at the event for the Cary, N.C., native, who capped off the 2020 Savannah Invitational with a 13-under-par score of 203. In the 2020 tournament, Mishoe and the Quakers took on a field that featured 10 of the Top-25 teams in the Golfstat.com Division III poll.
This year, Mishoe was joined among Top-15 finishers by teammate Addison Manring, who was tied for 12th with an even par score.
The tandem helped Guilford tie Huntingdon College for second at the two-day, three-round event, and finishing 3-under-par with a score of 861 following rounds of 286, 287 and 288. Methodist took home the team championship with an 8-under-par score of 856 (290-287-279). The two-day, three-round tournament was played at Savannah Harbor Golf Resort which featured a par 72, 6,845-yard course.
Mishoe began the tournament with a 7-under-par score of 65, completing the first round of play with an eagle at 11 and seven birdies. He followed that by carding five birdies in the second round, which placed him at 12-under-par at the close of play Monday.
Mishoe’s final round scorecard included three birdies and 13 pars, as he held off a charging Cameron Starr (LaGrange), who closed second with a 12-under-par score of 204.
“James was phenomenal this week at The Savannah Invitational,” said Guilford head coach Adam Crawford. “He was bogey free for the first 42 holes of the event, which is incredible. His 36-hole total tied the school record of 132, previously set by Ty Palmer in 2014. His 54 total also tied his own record which he set at this same event last year.”
