GREENSBORO, N.C. – After wrapping up the 2021 regular season with a third-place finish at the Wynlakes Spring Invitational, highlighted by a second-place performance on the individual leaderboard by James Mishoe, the Guilford golf team added another accolade this week when Mishoe was named as the ODAC Men’s Golfer of the week by the league.
The Top-3 finish helped keep Guilford atop the Golfstat.com rankings national, followed by No. 2 Methodist and No. 3 Huntingdon heading into the ODAC Tournament at Bryan Park in Greensboro on April 25-26.
It marks the ninth time in his career, and fourth time in the 2020-21 campaign, that Mishoe has earned ODAC Men’s Golfer of the Week honors. Mishoe’s first ODAC Men’s Golfer of the week honors this season came on March 10th, after winning the Savannah Invitational in consecutive seasons. He followed that up by receiving the honor on March 24th after successfully defending his 2020 championship and winning his fifth individual crown at the Jekyll Island Collegiate. He claimed his third of the season on April 7th after a fifth-place finish at the Golfweek Division III Spring Invitational.
Mishoe 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).
