Wednesday, April 6, 2005
FRANKLIN, Tenn. --- Tennessee State men's golf team finished in a tie for fifth place in the Belmont Spring Invitational and would have finished higher if not for some misfortune in the final round. Tiger senior Robert Dinwiddie was four-under par after nine holes in the final round when he discovered that a teammate had accidentally put a club in his big to exceed the club total of 14. Dinwiddie self-reported the mistake and was issued a mandatory four stroke penalty. Dinwiddie's teammate had put the club in Dinwiddie's bag after practice on Tuesday prior to the start of the final round. Despite the accident, Dinwiddie still fired a 73 and finished with a 54-hole total of 209 t finish in a tie for third place. As a team, TSU shot an 870 while Morehead State and Southeast Missouri each shot an 866. Big 12 Conference member Missouri cruised to the title with an 824. "It was an accident and Robert was honest to report the mistake," said TSU coach Dr. Catana Stars. "He was playing an excellent final round at the time. Overall, it was good tournament as it always is." Phillip Watkins posted a top 10 finish with a 215, which featured a second round 66. Other TSU scores were Stu Michaels 220, Jordan Roberts 229, and Lawrence Larson 232. The tournament was held on the par-71, 6,759-yard Legends Club. A total of 17 teams participated in the event.
