Bryson Nimmer posted his fourth consecutive round under par to finish in a tie for sixth place at the Dogwood Invitational at Druid Hills Golf Club in Atlanta on Saturday.
Nimmer carded a 2-under-par 70 to finish at 15-under for the tournament, but he couldn’t keep pace with the shootout between champion Lloyd Jefferson Go and runner-up Luke Schniederjans.
Nimmer, a former Hilton Head Christian Academy standout and current Clemson All-American, had a bumpy first nine with two birdies and three bogeys before making four birdies to shoot 3-under on the back, but it quickly turned into a two-horse race.
Jefferson Go and Schniederjans each shot 6-under 66 in the final round to pull away from the field. Jefferson Go, a native of the Philipines and recent graduate from Seton Hall, made a long birdie putt on the 17th hole to get to 21-under and edge Georgia Tech star Schniederjans by one shot.
The strong finish bodes well for Nimmer heading into the Players Amateur, which will be played July 13-16 on his home course at Berkeley Hall in Bluffton.
