Steve Stricker hits chip shot from top of scoreboard at Wisconsin's Camp Randall Stadium

October 11, 2014

During halftime of today's Wisconsin, Illinois football game, Steve Stricker found himself tethered atop Camp Randall Stadium's scoreboard hitting chip shots in front of 80,000 people. No, it wasn't torture for the former Illini, it was for one lucky fan. Stricker was attempting to land the 135-yard shot onto the Motion W at midfield from a platform above Section K. If he hit it, Bob Beggs of Fitchburg would win two VIP Wanamaker Club tickets to the 2015 PGA Championship at Whistling Straits. Why Bob you ask? Beggs was selected at random from thousands who registered to win.
