WAUKESHA — Wisconsin golfer, Steve Stricker, isn't only preparing to captain this year's U.S. Ryder Cup team.

He's also getting a lot of steps in as a golf dad.

Stricker caddied for his 15-year-old daughter, Izzi, at this week's WSGA Women's State Amateur Championship at the Legend at Merrill Hills in Waukesha.

The two-day championship was a family affair.

Stricker's wife, Nikki, who caddies for him on tour, was on the bag for the couple's oldest, Bobbi. Bobbi just graduated from UW-Madison and played on the women's golf team.

She went on to win the entire tournament in a playoff, with a two-day total of -4.

The Ryder Cup will be played at Whistling Straits in Sheboygan County, in September.
