Badger Invitational – Wisconsin, USA

Nick is now back into his College golf commitments after the summer break which saw him play a number of US Amateur events as an individual.  The first event of the season was the Badger Invitational hosted by the University of Wisconsin.  The event was played on the University Ridge Golf Course in Madison, Wisconsin which was recently named the third-best “Campus Golf Course” in the country by Golfweek.  University Ridge plays host to the American Family Insurance Championship each June. Kirk Triplett won the 2016 Champions Tour event, shooting a 17-under par score of 199.

The Iowa Cyclones won the event by 10 shots with two of the five man team finishing in the top ten.  Nick finished tied for eighth with rounds of 70, 72 and 72 giving him a total of 214.  He was six shots off the winner who finished with a total of 208.  This is Nick’s 15th top ten finish in his college career.


This blog was originally set up to share our 9 month adventure around Europe and the USA with friends and family in 2014. On returning to NZ in January 2015 I decided to carry it on so I could continue to share any future travel adventures - it has become my electronic travel diary. I hope you enjoy and get inspired to visit some of the wonderful places we have visited.
