Great PGA Tour website story focuses on Madison golfer Jerry Kelly

Jerry Kelly, one of the most successful professional golfers ever to come out of Wisconsin, is the subject of a long, interesting story on the PGA Tour website.

The 50-year-old Kelly, who has spent 21 seasons on the Tour, was a winner three times but described himself as a "successful journeyman" during his career.

Born in Madison, Kelly played hockey at the University of Hartford before turning pro as a golfer in 1989, and he didn't make it onto the PGA Tour until 1996. Kelly and Madison's Steve Stricker have teamed to attract a Senior PGA Tour event, the American Family Insurance Open, to Madison.
