Williamson has top-five finish to lead NSU in Argonaut Invitational

PENSACOLA, Fla. – Tate Williamson highlighted Northeastern State with a fourth place tie against one of the deepest fields in the nation on Tuesday at the Argonaut Invitational.

Williamson fired of a five-under, 67 in the opening round that carried over from Monday and scored a 74 in the second round for 141.   The NSU senior went against the top-individual in the nation and a field that included three teams in the top-10 and six in the top-25.

NSU freshman Navid Majidizadeh had two steady rounds on the course with a 147 (74-73) which was good enough for a 24th place tie on the leaderboard.

However, the RiverHawks wouldn’t get much more help and finished in 11th, scoring a 606 (301-35).

Very disappointing team performance as we couldn’t overcome our four and five bags,” said head coach Scott Varner.   “Ty (Shelnutt) as our three didn’t play at the level he had been.  Very proud of Tate (Williamson) and Navid (Majidizadeh) is coming on strong this spring…pretty doggone good for an unheralded freshman. He and Ty could be special for years to come.

“Weather didn’t help either, we got the brunt of it yesterday on the hardest holes.”

Ty Shelnutt scored a 155 (77-78) and was tied for 57th, Garrett McDaniel shot a 165 (85-80), and Marc Johnson was a shot back of McDaniel (83-83).

West Florida who was the top-ranked team in the nation, won their on invite by 18 strokes, carding a 558.

The RiverHawks have one more regular season tournament on April 17-18 in Hays, Kan. before the MIAA Tournament.
