Newcastle golfer fall season on a roll
Dalton Daniel was not happy with his golf game. As he entered the final month of his summer/fall schedule, he had several top five finishes. He couldn't put a finger on it except to know he wasn’t winning.
Daniel finally decided to make a change with his putter. It’s something he had been thinking about doing for a while, but finally made the move right before October began.
From that point on, it was easy to say Daniel, a Newcastle senior, became one of the hottest golfers in the state.
"I think played very well," Daniel said. “I had been practicing very hard. All year I was getting close, but In October, I put a new putter in the bag and kept practicing really hard. I finally got some wins. It was awesome.”
Playing on tours sponsored by the Oklahoma Jr. golf association (OJGT), Daniel racked up three tournament victories in October. They included OJGT Tour Championship, Bill Nicholas Memorial Classic and the Oklahoma vs Texas Red River Challenge Championship.
The Red River Challenge was especially important th Daniels because of the past golfing greats who have taken home the title.
