Wisconsin natives and pro golfers Steve Stricker and Skip Kendall took part in hosting a skills challenge with youth from the First Tee of South Central Wisconsin at University Ridge, Tuesday morning.

100 kids within the First Tee of South Central Wisconsin learned from some of the games best and Wisconsin natives Stricker and Kendall.

“I want to see Wisconsin junior golf get to the level where it’s really good so we can produce the Steve Strickers, Jerry Kellys, you know J.P. Hayes, Mark Wilson, myself and keep it going,” said Kendall. Originally from the Milwaukee area, but now lives in Orlando, FL.

Both Stricker and Kendall participated in youth events similar to the First Tee when they were kids.

“You know it’s how we all got started, in some sort of junior program,” said Stricker, an Edgerton native. “The First Tee has a great program. I remember those days, so it’s cool to see these kids having those same experiences and having fun with it.”
