Hobart's Brad Dalke takes lead at Junior PGA

by Scott Wright Published: July 30, 2013

Fifteen-year-old Brad Dalke shot a 6-under-par 65 to take a one-stroke lead after the first round of the Junior PGA Championship Tuesday at Trump National Golf Club in Potomac Falls, Va.

Dalke, who finished tied for fourth in the event last year, has been verbally committed to Oklahoma since he was 12 years old. His family recently relocated to Hobart from Texas when his father, Bill Dalke, was hired as Hobart’s high school football coach.

Edmond North’s Sam Humphreys and Norman North’s Thomas Johnson each shot 70 in the first round and are part of a group tied for seventh in the 72-hole event.

Edmond Memorial’s Jacob Bishop and Broken Arrow’s Emma Allen were also among the competitors in the boys and girls events. Each shot 78 in their respective tournaments.
