Why is Steve Stricker swinging a golf club from on top of a scoreboard at Camp Randall Stadium in Madison, Wis. this morning?
Check out this tweet:
Here's the explanation, from the University of Wisconsin athletic department. It has to do with an awesome promotion that could win a lucky fan to VIP Wanamaker Club tickets to the 2015 PGA Championship at Whistling Straits.

"At halftime, Stricker will hit three balls in his attempt to land a 135-yard shot onto the Motion W at midfield from the videoboard platform above Section K. If he is successful, Bob Beggs of Fitchburg will win two VIP Wanamaker Club tickets to the 2015 PGA Championship at Whistling Straits. Beggs was selected at random from thousands who registered to win the contest."
Stricker is a 12-time winner on the PGA Tour and a three-time member of the U.S. Ryder Cup Team. And he's a Wisconsin native, hence the Badger-PGA connection.

Should be fun to watch, and glad Strick's belted in with a safety harness before he tries to belt one.
