Stricker will host Champions Tour event
By Torleif Sorenson on 6/3/15

Beginning one year from now, Wisconsin will host high-level professional golf for the first time since 2009. The Champions Tour will descend on Madison for the 2016 American Family Insurance Championship, to be hosted by PGA Tour player Steve Stricker.

Humorously, Stricker is not eligible to play in the inaugural event, since he will not turn 50 years old until February 23, 2017. But he is an Edgerton, Wisconsin native who lives in Madison, while American Family Insurance is also headquartered in that city. Not surprisingly, the tournament will benefit two organizations: The Steve Stricker American Family Insurance Foundation (founded in 2013) and the American Family Children's Hospital.

When the inaugural event begins on June 24, 2016, it will have 81 competitors, no cut, and two days of pro-am play beforehand. The event will take place on one of the better courses in the state — University Ridge GC in Verona, just outside Madison. University Ridge hosted the 1998 NCAA Division I Women's Golf Championship and several Big Ten Conference championships (so far), and will host the 2015 Wisconsin State Open coming up on August 17-19. As the name suggests, it is also the home of the University of Wisconsin Badger men's and women's golf teams — so if you see red on the golf course, it is not just on the tournament scoreboards.


Robert Trent Jones, Jr.'s design of the 4th, 5th, and 6th holes at University Ridge
put a premium on accuracy — and recovery, if you miss the fairway.

The state previously hosted the PGA Tour from 1968 until 2009 at the Greater Milwaukee Open, which was held at four different Milwaukee-area courses, the last being Brown Deer Park Golf Course.

Golf fans in Badger State will have no shortage of locally-based players for which to cheer; Jerry Kelly (Madison), J.P. Hayes (Appleton), Skip Kendall (Milwaukee), and Madison resident Andy North are expected to participate. Stricker, of course, will be eligible to play in 2017.
