HAVEN, Wis. — During day 1 of the Ryder Cup competition, TMJ4 News caught up with Joe Wolff, a Kohler native and former Milwaukee Bucks player and coach.
The onetime high school basketball star shared his amazement at how far Whistling Straits has come since he was a kid.
He recalled biking to a tiny 5-hole public golf course in Kohler, a far cry from the Whistling Straits of today.
“Back then, you were lucky to have a golf ball,” Wolff laughed. "And how many years later, to have this happen, unbelievable. Just unbelievable."
