Wisconsin golfers solid at PGA Championship
While all of the attention was given to the top of the leaderboard Sunday at the PGA Championship, a couple of Wisconsin golfers had strong showings.
Edgerton’s Steve Stricker came up short in his quest for his first Major, once again. Stricker entered the final round 8-under for the tournament, 5-shots off the lead. He finished at 11-under, tied for 7th place, and 5-shots off the lead.
Madison’s Jerry Kelly also had a strong showing. He finished up with a 4-under, 67 to finish 6-under for the tournament. Kelly was playing in only his 2nd Major in the last 3-years.
The underdog story of Ryan Helmenin came to end Friday. The Teaching Pro at Ridgeway Country Club in Neenah just missed the cut-line. He finished his first two days 2-over par, 1-over was the cut.
Northern Ireland’s Rory McIlroy won the title, his 2nd PGA Championship win and 4th overall Major. McIlroy was 16-under for the tournament. Phil Mickelson was 2nd, one shot back.
Next year's PGA Championship returns to Wisconsin at Whistling Straits in Kohler.
