James Tyree Poston (born June 1, 1993) is an American professional golfer.

In high school, while competing for Hickory High School, Poston shot a NCHSAA golf tournament record 63.[1]

In college, Poston competed for Western Carolina University where he won six times including two consecutive Southern Conference titles.[2][3]

After starting 2016 with no status on any tour, Poston Monday qualified for the United Leasing Championship on the Web.com Tour and finished T23. His finish earned him entry into the Rex Hospital Open, where a tie for third earned him Special Temporary Member status for the season. Five more top 15s, including two second-place finishes, resulted in Poston finishing 10th on the regular-season money list and earning a 2017 PGA Tour card.[4]
