Team Oklahoma’s Kevin Maples sports a classic pair knickers, argyle socks and sleek black golf cap. Kevin’s style and deft play made him a standout on the course. The cooperative weather made it for a comfortable morning and afternoon Tuesday, especially for the middle of July in Nebraska. Golf events are slated all week, including unified and individual competition.

South Carolina golfer breaks world Special Olympics record

Photo

Scott Rohrer, 21, of York, S.C., set a USA National Special Olympics golf record with a 1-under par 71 at Highlands Golf Course in Lincoln, Neb. Golfing in the windy conditions, Rohrer beat the previous USA National Games record of a 73 by Joel Murray of Louisiana set last year. Rohrer plays at the highest classification in the games.

Rohrer’s 71 on the Highlands Golf Course in Lincoln, Neb., is his personal best score. He made it in his first 18-hole individual stroke-play national event. PGA of America Honorary President Brian Whitcomb met with Rohrer at the leader board to congratulate him on his National Games feat.

“I had four birdies, a bunch of pars, a couple of bogies, but overall not a bad day. Actually, it was just awesome and the best I’ve ever done,” said Rohrer. Rohrer has traditionally played in the national event with his father in the Level III 18-hole team play event, winning the gold medal in the Level III 2009 Special Olympics Golf National Invitational Tournament.

Scott’s father, Jeff, was on site in Nebraska, but helping out as coach with the Level I Individual Skills competition. “My wife was Scott’s caddie so I knew he was playing great, I just didn’t know how great,” said father Jeff Rohrer, also of York, S.C. “He was on his game today that is for sure. I think that the course we play in South Carolina, River Hills Country Club, makes you hit your shot with accuracy or you are in real trouble… that is what helped him here today.”
