Rohrer leads Special Olympics Day 1


LITCHFIELD PARK, Ariz. – Scott Rohrer of York, S.C., shot an 83 on the par-72 Gold Course to lead the field in the 18-hole individual stroke play competition (Level V) of the Special Olympics National Golf Invitational Tournament.

Tyler Whitehurst of Dunedin, Fla., was the 18-hole individual stroke-play gold medalist in 2011 and currently is three shots behind Rohrer with an 86.

Rohrer was the record-setting gold medalist at the 2010 Special Olympics National Golf Invitational Tournament when he shot the 18-hole (71) and 54-hole (21) individual stroke-play record at the Highlands Golf Course in Lincoln, Neb.

A field of 203 golfers from 19 programs representing the United States and Canada are competing in five levels of competition in the 13th annual tournament through Sunday.
