CHARLESTON, S.C. --- Tennessee State senior golfer Robert Dinwiddie sank about a 20-foot putt off the fringe of the green to capture medalist honors in the Charleston Southern University Fall Tournament to complete a solid showing for the Tigers in their final event of the fall.
Dinwiddie's effort prevented a playoff for the individual title. Tennessee State finished third in the 10-team event. Host Charleston Southern won the 54-hole tournament held on the par-71, 6,467-yard Coosaw Creek County Club.
Dinwiddie had rounds of 67, 71, and 70 to finish with a 208, finishing one stroke ahead of CSU's Paul Reed. TSU's Phillip Watkins shot a 216 to post a top 10 finish, tying for ninth place.
As a team, TSU finished with an 880. CSU won with an 858, 10 strokes ahead of second place Florida Atlantic's 868. Finishing 11 strokes back of TSU in fourth place was The Citadel 891, followed by Florida A&M 829, Jacksonville and Bethune Cookman 897, Stetson 914, South Carolina State 922, and Alabama State 1136.
Other TSU scores were Matthew Buley 228, Lawrence Larson 230, and Jordan Roberts 240.
The Tigers will begin their spring schedule in March.
