Brad Dalke will look to defend his title at the AJGA CB&I Boys Championship, which starts Saturday at the Club at Carlton Woods’ Fazio Championship Course in The Woodlands, Texas.
Dalke, of Hobart, Okla., won last year’s event, then called the HP Boys Championship, by a shot over Scottie Scheffler and Peter Kim. It was Dalke’s second AJGA invitational victory – he would add a third later in the year at the 2013 Ping Invitational.
Neither Kim or Scheffler are in this year’s field. Kim is now in college while Scheffler is opting to play mostly amateur events this year.
Notables in the field include Sam Burns, Cameron Champ, Austin Connelly, Doug Ghim, Davis Riley and Andy Zhang.
