Williamson Named GCAA PING All-Northeast First TeamFor the second time in his career, Justin Williamson was named a Golf Coaches Association of America (GCAA) Division I PING All-Northeast Region First Team honoree following his shortened firstie season. Williamson was the final Patriot League Golfer of the Week before the season came to a halt. He shot a 2-over par 212 (70-71-71) to tie for 10th-place out of 75 competitors at the 54-hole Palmetto Invitational at the par-70 Palmetto Golf Club in the beginning of March. The firstie helped the Black Knights to a fifth-place finish with a team score of 26-over par 866 in the 15-team field.

It was his second weekly honor of the season as he won the individual title at the Lehigh Invitational on October 19. Williamson earned the individual medal by shooting an even-par 144 (74-70) during the 36-hole tournament at Saucon Valley Country Club. He fired a season-high 2-under par 70 in the second round at the 7,091-yard course to earn a one-stroke victory.

Williamson led the Black Knights to a second-place finish in the 14-team field that included Patriot League rivals Bucknell, Holy Cross, Lafayette, Lehigh, and Navy. He finishes his career with two postseason honors from the GCAA and he was a two-time Patriot League Second Team honoree (2018, 2019).

Williamson led the Black Knights to the 2019 Patriot League Title with a 3-over through the three days, but his final round 66 (-6) helped Army break away from the field and earn the championship. The 66 fired on the last day was his lowest round of his career and is tied for third-lowest round in program history. Williamson was Army best finisher at NCAA Regionals at UT Golf Club with a score of 73-75-73--221 (+8). Story.
