COURSE TODAY… AT ONE POINT, STEVE STRICKER WAS FIVE UNDER ON HIS ROUND TODAY BEFORE SETTLING FOR TWO UNDER ON HIS ROUND, FOUR UNDER FOR THE TOURNAMENT. AND WHILE IT ULTIMATELY WASN’T THE RESULT HE WAS HOPING FOR, HE’LL TAKE A LOT AWAY FROM THE PAST FOUR DAYS. MY GAME IS REALLY CLOSE TO BEING RIGHT WHERE IT’S BEEN. IT’S JUST DOING THOSE LITTLE THINGS AND NOT SCORING THE WAY I USED TO SCORE, REALLY. BUT IT WAS FUN TO PLAY AND FUN TO GET ALL THE SUPPORT THAT I GOT HERE THIS WEEK. WE HAD A GREAT TIME. NICKI AND I, SHE SAID OUT THERE, I WISH I COULD CADDIE FOR YOU ALL THE TIME. SO THAT’S PRETTY COOL. IT WAS GREAT TO GET OUT THERE. GET A CHANCE TO SEE, I THINK WAS THE BIGGEST THING, INSIDE THE ROPES. BUT JUST TO GET TO SHARE THIS WITH STEVE WAS AN AWESOME EXPERIENCE. I HEAR WISCONSIN FANS WHEREVER I GO. THAT’S A COOL FEELING TO HAVE. AND LIKE I SAID, THIS IS A SPECIAL FEELING WALKING UP 18 TODAY. AND HOW ABOUT THE EXPERIENCE FOR LAFOLLETTE GRAD AND 99 WIAA STATE CHAMP JOE LEONARD. THE PGA PROFESSIONAL FROM WISCONSIN RAPIDS WAS CHOSEN TO PLAY ALONG WITH FELLOW GOLF PRO BRIAN GAFFNEY TO EVEN OUT THE FIELD. IT ALSO HAPPENED TO BE HIS FIRST TIME EVER PLAYING WHISTLING STRAITS. TO BE ON A MAJOR, TO BE IN THESE COURSE CONDITIONS, TO SEE THE HARDEST CONDITIONS IN GOLF, TO SEE WHAT YOU CAN DO ON THAT TYPE OF GOLF COURSE, JUST TICKLED PINK, I MEAN, UNBELIEVABLE. LEONARD HELD HIS OWN, CARDING A 3 OVER 75 ON HIS MAIDEN JOURNEY AROUND THE STRAITS. A LOT OF TOURNAMENTS WE HAVE FANS, BUT IT’S NOT LOUD. I MEAN, YOU HEAR ROARS AND CHEERS OUT HERE. IT JUST SENDS SHIVERS UP YOUR SPINE. WHO WILL ULTIMATELY CLAIM THE 97TH PGA CHAMPIONSHIP? I’LL LET YOU KNOW COMING UP TONIGHT AT TEN. AT WHISTLING STRAITS, RYAN WING, NBC15
