BLOOMFIELD HILLS, MI (August 19, 2016) -- Nothing is more fun then winning and advancing at the U.S. Amateur.

However, winning a second celebrity wrestling match 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 at the U.S. Amateur. He will tee off Thursday afternoon in the quarterfinals against David Boote of Wales.
