Am Fam Championship week is Steve Stricker’s favorite time of the year

MADISON, Wis. — For Steve Stricker, Am Fam Championship week is special.

He’s back in his home state, golfing in front of his friends and family. But the best part for him has nothing to do with the game he loves.

Sticker’s favorite part of the 7-day event at University Ridge is being able to help his community with the amount of money the tournament raises for charity.

“Way bigger than any win that’ I’ve ever had on the tour”, Stricker said. “This is a special week for all of us”.

Stricker tees off Friday at 10:50 am with Jim Furyk and Davis Love III. Jerry Kelly will be right behind that trio, hitting the course with Fred Couples and Retief Goosen at 11:00 am.
