Dorn back again at Ohio Amateur
CINCINNATI - Four former champions plan to tee it up Tuesday in the opening round of the 108th Ohio Amateur at Coldstream Country Club.
Among them are two-time winner Robert Gerwin and defending champ Andrew Dorn. Gerwin won his titles in 1996 and 2001, while Dorn, who plays at Coastal Carolina, held off Ohio State's Michael Bernard down the stretch to win a year ago at Brookside Country Club in Canton.
Dorn went on to qualify for the U.S. Open three weeks ago at Pinehurst, where he missed the cut.
Other past Ohio Am champs include Alan Fadel, who won the last time the event was held at Coldstream in 1995, and Peter Hammar (1987).
The 144-player field faces four rounds of medal play, with the final 18 holes set for Friday.
Jim Brown says '64 title ring stolen
CLEVELAND - Browns Hall of Fame running back Jim Brown says his 1964 NFL championship ring being auctioned online was stolen from him.
Brown's ring is up for bidding on www.lelands.com until July 25. As of Monday, the highest bid was for $33,275. Brown tells cleveland.com that a claim by the auction company that he authenticated the ring is "a lie." Brown says he was unaware the ring was being auctioned off.
Brown, who works as a Browns special adviser, says the ring was stolen from him more than 40 years ago.
One of the greatest players in NFL history, Brown rushed for 12,312 yards in nine seasons. In '64, he rushed for 1,446 yards and scored seven touchdowns as the Browns won the title - the last for any major Cleveland sports franchise.
