Bawden would then sink an 18-foot putt for birdie on the first playoff hole to capture the medalist honors.
Bawden finished the three rounds with a 72-68-69 for a 209, helping Eastern Florida State College finish fourth in the two-day invitational.
Central Alabama won the team title with an 852 while Mississippi Gulf Coast finished five strokes behind.
