U.S. Women's Amateur Public Links: Anne-Catherine Tanguay, Brad Dalke make a good team

Brad Dalke, the junior golfer who verbally committed to OU three years ago at the age of 12, has served as the caddie this week for Sooner golfer Anne-Catherine Tanguay in the U.S. Women's Amateur Public Links Championship at Jimmie Austin OU Golf Club.

Brad will remain in Fort Worth, where he will be a high school sophomore. He attends the Jim McLean Junior Golf Academy, with his sights set on joining the Sooners in 2016.

Now having played five rounds at this week's event, Tanguay feels Dalke has learned her game well.

“We have very similar styles, which I think really helps,” Tanguay said. “He's a little more aggressive than I am as a player, and in match play, that's really what you want. You want to go at the flags, but at the same time, make good decisions when you need to just make par.

“We still debate on what to hit sometimes, and I tell him, ‘Brad, I know my course. I know this is what I want to hit.' And he lets me go with my decisions. He never puts me in doubt, and I think that's the most important thing for a caddie.”
