DURANT, Okla. - Southeastern's Zach James wrapped up his fall season at the beginning of October, and on Oct. 23 climbed to the No. 1 individual ranking among NCAA Division II Golfers in the latest Golfstat player rankings.

James, a senior from Whitesboro, Texas, boasts a comparative record of 1,568-2 through five tournaments, meaning he has finished ahead of all but two competitors over the course of the fall portion of the season. Additionally, he is 5-0 versus players ranked 26-50 and 10-0 versus players 51-100.
