Dalke wins popular Westwood Invitational

By Clay Hornung

Brad Dalke did not break the tournament record.

Soon, the rising sophomore member of the Sooner men’s golf program will be teeing it up at the Trans Miss Championship at the Olympic Club in San Francisco, one of the nation’s most historic amateur golf tournaments on one of the nation’s most historic courses, and still he couldn’t quite erase Sam Powell’s 18-under par 192, shot in 2009, from the record book.

He tied it with rounds of 64, 63 and 65. Though he got it to 19-under with a few holes still to play, he actually bogeyed the par 3 15th and three-putted the par 5 16th for par. Then, just as he was about to drop another stroke at both the par 3 17th and the par 4 18th, he came up with two dandy up-and-downs.

Anyway, it was a cool scene.

A bunch of carts following the final group. A bunch of carts waiting, side-by-side, above the 18th green, like it was a drive-in movie.

For the second straight year Austin Bowman finished second. A year ago he shot 196, this time it was 197. Maybe he wins next year.

So the golf, once again, was top notch. And still, even in the final group, the Westwood Invitational story was about more than that.
