The trio played together in the final round with Dorn shooting 66, Grimmer shooting 70 and Crouch 74. Overall, Dorn edged Grimmer, a high school senior-to-be who joined Dorn as a 2014 U.S. Open qualifier last month, by one stroke at 8-under 276 on the 7,031-yard, par-71 Coldstream Country Club.
Dorn shot scores of 72, 69 and 69 in the first three rounds. On Friday, he birdied three of his first eight holes. After his lone bogey on the ninth hole, he made birdies on holes 10, 15 and 16. Dorn and Grimmer, who also birdied the 16th, were tied before Grimmer made bogey on the 17th.
Last year, Dorn birdied the final two holes in the final round to claim a two-stroke win at 5-under par.
