Hudson resident Dexter James, 9, placed second with a score of 46 in the Northern Ohio PGA Junior Golf Pups Tour Championship last month at Club Walden in Aurora.

He also was the runner-up for player-of-the-year honors in the age 8-to-10-year-old Northeast Ohio golf league.

Dexter shot a 1-under-35 and was named Player of the Year in the 9-year-old division of the U.S. Kids Golf League in Cleveland. As a result, he qualified for next year’s World Championship in Pinehurst, N.C.

Dexter also recently placed 11th in a drive, chip and putt contest at a sub-regional competition at Westfield Country Club in Westfield Center.
