Cheeseheads have reason to cheer

LA JOLLA, Calif. -- OK. So the Green Bay Packers won't be returning to the Super Bowl.

But golfers from Wisconsin have certainly given their fellow cheeseheads something to cheer about this year.

Two of the first three PGA TOUR events have been won by golfers from Wisconsin with Steve Stricker capturing the Hyundai Tournament of Champions and Mark Wilson taking a one-stroke victory Sunday at the Humana Challenge in partnership with the Clinton Foundation.

Not to mention, Dan Forsman, who was born in Rhinelander, Wisc., captured the Champions Tour opener at the Mitsubishi Electric Championship on Sunday.

Stricker, who was born in Edgerton and now lives in Madison, has won three times in the last 13 months. Ditto for Wilson, who hails from Menomonee Falls and famously wore a "Cheesehead" hat last year during his victory at the Waste Management Phoenix Open.

No one else on TOUR has that many victories in the same time frame. Small wonder that Wilson and Stricker rank Nos. 2-3 in the FedExCup standings, too.
