Hobart Golfer Leads Jr. PGA Championship

Posted: Updated:

POTOMAC FALLS, Va. –  Brad Dalke of Hobart, Okla., enjoyed the ideal weather conditions in Northern Virginia Tuesday at Trump National Golf Club, grabbing the opening-round lead in the boys' division at the 38th Junior PGA Championship.

Dalke opened with a flawless 6-under-par 65 for a one-stroke advantage in the boys' division. His round featured six birdies, including a near eagle on his final hole, the par-5 10th. The two-tee start had players teeing off from the 1st and 11th holes.

"I played really well all day and hit a whole lot of fairways and a lot of greens," said Dalke, 15. "I missed some medium-length putts and could have gone lower, but I'm happy with a 65 for sure."

Dalke, playing in his second Junior PGA Championship, is looking to build on the experience of playing in an elite junior championship. He finished in a tie for fourth in 2012 at Sycamore Hills Golf Club in Fort Wayne, Ind.

"The first time I played in this event it was fun, but it was a real wake-up call because of the strong field," said Dalke. "I shot a 65 in the final round last year at the Junior PGA Championship and it was the lowest round of my career. That round really gave me the experience of being able to go low."

Sam Stevens of Wichita, Kan., is alone in second after an opening-round 66.

Cameron Champ of Sacramento, Calif., who finished as the runner-up in 2012, is in a group of three players just three strokes back of Dalke.
