Steve Stricker has seen his fair share of wild shots, but he may have just hit the craziest one of his career Saturday afternoon.
In front of more than 80,000 fans who packed Camp Randall Stadium at the University of Wisconsin's football game against the University of Illinois, Stricker was given three shots at landing a ball on the midfield 'W' from the top of the video board -- a roughly 135-yard shot. To raise the stakes, if he was able to land one on the 'W' then a Wisconsin fan would receive free VIP Wanamaker Club tickets to the 2015 PGA Championship at Whistling Straits.
Stricker came close, but none of his shots hit their target.

Regardless, social media was abuzz with Stricker's shot.
At least they didn't wait until the end of the third quarter for this promotion. That's when House of Pain's "Jump Around" plays and Camp Randall Stadium goes crazy.
We'll give Stricker the benefit of the doubt and say that the safety cord messed up the three-time U.S. Ryder Cup Team member's swing. Plus, hitting a shot in front of 80,000 people is no easy task.
Now the natural question becomes which golfer will be the next to take a shot at a football stadium? For my money, I want to see Jason Dufner hit one over Jordan-Hare Stadium.
