EDMOND, Okla. (July 10, 2012) -- Texans with ties to the University of Oklahoma found things to their liking during the first round of the 109th Trans-Mississippi Championship, presented by TaylorMade-Adidas Golf, at Oak Tree National in Edmond, Okla. Riley Pumphrey of Georgetown Texas, a member at Oak Tree, fired a 4-under 67 in good scoring conditions to share the lead after the opening round of the 72-hole, stroke play event. Pumphrey, who finished up his golfing career at the Oklahoma this spring, had a 3-under 32 on Oak Tree’s back side, his opening nine of the day. He had four birdies on that side to offset a lone bogey at No. 13 and added a pair of birdies on the front side during a morning round.
Joining him at 4-under was McKinney, Texas high schooler Brad Dalke. Fourteen-year-old Dalke, whose father played linebacker for the Sooners and who has already committed to OU, also had a 3-under 32 on Oak Tree’s back nine. His made three birdies and no bogeys to lead the afternoon wave. Dalke then had three birdies and two bogeys in a front-nine 35.
The second round of the 2012 Championship will be conducted Wednesday at Oak Tree with a cut to the low 60 players and ties. The third and fourth rounds are scheduled for Thursday.
