OXFORD, Miss — Incoming Ole Miss freshman Jacob Ross recently captured the State Games of Mississippi amateur golf championship held at the Northwood Country Club in Meridian.

The Brookhaven, Miss., native birdied two of his final three holes on the last day to grab the Division A, 16-18 boys crown. Ross carded a 3-over 74 on day one, but rebounded with a 1-under 70 in the second round for the come-from-behind victory.

“It’s one of the bigger events in the state, and it’s not just golf,” said Ross. “It’s baseball and all the other sports, so it’s exciting to be the state games champion.”

A Brookhaven Academy graduate, Ross is a four-time 2A Mississippi state champion and a two-time Mississippi Junior Golfer of the Year. — Ole Miss Sports Information
