The kid who beat Rory McIlroy in arm wrestling is making his PGA Tour debut

You may remember the name Brad Dalke. He was the kid who committed to Oklahoma as a 12-year-old, and became an Internet sensation after beating Rory McIlroy in an arm-wrestling match last year:

Okay, so it wasn't exactly Over the Top, but impressive nevertheless.

After a successful junior career, Dalke, now a freshman at Oklahoma, is making his PGA Tour debut this week at the Valero Texas Open. He owns a 72.86 scoring average at Norman, with a season-best 66 at the Ka'anapali Classic Collegiate Invitational.

Here's to hoping Dalke turns in a strong performance at TPC San Antonio. Because the tour is exciting as is, but if we could add weekly arm-wrestling contests into the mix? Baby, now we're talking.
