Hannon aims for three-peat

Mike Hannon watches his tee shot on hole 11 during the 2012
Adams County Open at Lochland Country Club.

After the first round of last year's Adams County Open, defending champion Mike Hannon, a St. Cecilia graduate, trailed the leader by four strokes.

On the second day of the competition, he shot a round-low of 73 en route to his second straight Open championship in the championship flight.

Hannon knows winning a third-straight Adams County Open will be a tall task.
"I'm just going to prepare as I normally would, knowing that I've had success and trying to repeat that," Hannon said. "It wasn't easy to win two in a row, and three won't be any easier."

The Adams County Open begins Saturday at Southern Hills Golf Course with tee times starting at 8:03 a.m. The tournament will wrap up Sunday at Lochland Country Club.
