Dorn becomes 10th player in 108 years to win back-to-back


CINCINNATI (AP) - Andrew Dorn birdied the 15th and 16th holes and passed 17-year-old Will Grimmer down the stretch to capture his second consecutive Ohio Amateur championship.

Dorn, a Coastal Carolina senior-to-be from West Chester, becomes the 10th player in the tournament's 108 years to win back-to-back. Others include Arnold Palmer, John Cook and current PGA Tour pros Ben Curtis and Jason Kokrak.

Dorn started the day three shots behind Grimmer. Playing in the same group, he caught him with the birdie at the 15th. While Grimmer bogeyed the 17th hole, Dorn finished with two pars to clinch the win.

His 5-under 66 matched Grimmer's Wednesday round for the low 18 of the week. It left Dorn at 8-under 276 and a shot ahead of Grimmer, who shot a 70.
