It's been a while, seven years to be exact, since we've had a regular professional men's golf tour stop around these parts. The Greater Milwaukee Open, or more recently U.S. Bank Championship, left Milwaukee and left us without a stop, though we've been lucky to host a couple of majors recently.
Edgerton native Steve Stricker puts an end to the drought by hosting a Champions Tour event at University Ridge in Madison this weekend.
Simultaneously, one of the state's top amateur tournaments will be right here in Janesville, with the 50th playing of the Ray Fischer State Medal Play Championship at Riverside.
Gazette sports editor Eric Schmoldt and writer John Barry sit down to discuss those golf tournaments, as well as putting to bed the spring high school sports season and a quick look at the latest Brewers news in this week's episode of Xtra Points.
Our theme music is "Rock Hybrid" by Kevin MacLeod. Find more of his work at his website.
