He posted back-to-back bogeys before reeling off three pars to end his round.

Andrew Dorn tallied his seventh career top 20 finish by tying for 13th. After a pair of 71’s Saturday, the junior posted a 77 Sunday to finish with a 3-over 219 over 54 holes. His 5-under scoring on the par 5’s was second-best in the field and his 11 birdies was the sixth-best total.
