Jackson Township, Ohio - One week after winning the prestigious North & South Amateur, Coastal Carolina rising junior and West Chester, Ohio, native Andrew Dorn won the 2013 Ohio Amateur Championship Friday at the par 71 Brookside Country Club just outside of Canton.

Much like last week's North & South Amateur, high profile names have been previous Ohio Amateur Champions, including the likes of Arnold Palmer, John Cook, Ben Curtis and Frank Stranahan.
Dorn, who had 16 birdies over his three rounds, had a five bogeys over a 10-hole span in the final round before a birdie on the 140-yard, par 3 14th. Despite a bogey on 15, Dorn responded with birdies on holes 17 and 18, both par 5's, to secure the two-stroke win.
Dorn only had one bogey in the first round, adding six birdies, for his 5-under round of 66 to tie for second. In round two, he had four birdies and two bogeys for a 2-under round of 69.
