U.S. Amateur: Oklahoma's Brad Dalke is winning and having fun
Brad Dalke reacts to a made putt in the U.S. Amateur Round of 16
BLOOMFIELD HILLS, MI (August 19, 2016) -- Nothing is
more fun then winning and advancing at the U.S.
However, winning a second celebrity wrestling
has to be a close second for Oklahoma sophomore Brad
Dalke. Following his Round of 64 victory, Dalke spoke
with Fox Sports reporter Holly Sonders and picked up
another big win beating her in an arm wrestling match.
Based on the photo that Dalke tweeted out she seemed
to take the defeat in stride.
The win against Holly came about 16 months after
Dalke, then 17-years-old, defeated Rory McIlroy in an
arm wrestling contest.
When Dalke isn't busy flexing his muscle on the arm
wrestling circuit, he has been busy making a deep run
the U.S. Amateur. He will tee off Thursday afternoon in
the quarterfinals against David Boote of Wales.
