Steve Stricker will hit a golf ball onto the Camp Randall field at halftime of a Badgers game

This should be fun.

So here's a goofy, yet totally awesome promotion. Wisconsin is running a contest that will have PGA Tour pro Steve Stricker (AKA the pride of Edgerton) launch a golf ball from atop the Camp Randall Stadium Section K videoboard in an attempt to land it on the Motion W at midfield. Should he succeed (it's apparently a 135-yard shot), one lucky fan will win a VIP experience at the 2015 PGA Championship at Whistling Straits.

This will all take place during the Oct. 11 Illinois game; you can read the full details here. To register, visit http://www.uwbadgers.com/contests/PGAChampionship.html.

The video above promoting this whole thing is pretty hilarious, too. Bo, as you'd expect, gives the best acting performance. Mike Eaves hams it up a bit, too. But Gary... c'mon man.

All respect due to Stricker, but we gotta these coaches taking the hacks themselves. Can you imagine the Camp Randall reaction if Bo got up there?
