Rohrer wins 6th gold medal at Special Olympics


Scott Rohrer, of York, S.C., won his sixth gold medal Sunday at the Special Olympics North America Golf Invitational Tournament.

Rohrer shot 83-77-86 on the par-72 course at Wigwam Resort in Litchfield Park, Ariz., to come from behind and win for the sixth time in seven tournament appearances.

Rohrer, who has autism, 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 were competing in five levels of competition at the 13th annual event.
