Rise of the Turtle
Golf has always been a part of Justin James' story. The son of PGA professional and 2 time Masters World Long Drive Champion Gerry James, Justin entered golf full time in 2014 after spending several seasons in the Toronto Blue Jays organization and coaching college golf at Trinity Baptist College in Jacksonville FL. Two years later, James was ranked 6th in the world after his rookie season and 3rd place finish at the 2016 World Long Drive Championship. Soon after, the snapping turtle persona was born in a golf channel profile. James would finish his sophomore season at number one in the official WLDC ranking after winning 3 times, including his first world title at the Volvik World Long Drive Championship.
