Hole in one

Jim Owen (81C)Last summer, we were proud to report that Jim Owen (81C) had once again reached the top of his profession by leading Oglethorpe University to its second NCAA Division III men’s golf championship in four years. In December, Jim was honored for his accomplishments as the Division III recipient of the Dave Williams Award, presented annually to America’s top college golf coaches.

Jim, a standout on the basketball court while at Berry, has enjoyed tremendous success as Oglethorpe’s men’s golf coach, winning 12 Southern Collegiate Athletic Conference Coach of the Year awards and 10 SCAC championships in a span of 15 years. The Stormy Petrels have been equally successful at the national level, finishing in the top 12 every year since 2000. This spring, Jim’s Petrels – ranked No. 1 nationally at the end of the fall season – will join Berry in the race for golf supremacy in the newly formed Southern Athletic Association.
