Steve Stricker hits golf balls onto field at Camp Randall Stadium

So, this was really cool. Illinois grad, Wisconsin native and PGA Tour veteran Steve Stricker hit golf balls from the rim of Camp Randall Stadium during halftime of Saturday’s Illinois-Wisconsin game.

Stricker was given three shots to try to land a ball on the Motion “W” at midfield – an estimated 135-yard shot – and if he did so, a Wisconsin fan would receive free┬áVIP Wanamaker Club tickets to the 2015 PGA Championship at Whistling Straits.

Stricker, donning an Illinois hat and Wisconsin shirt, came close, but he didn’t land on the logo.

Stricker, to no surprise, was a little nervous.
