MADISON, Wis. (WMTV) - Jerry Kelly defended his crown as the king of American Family Insurance Championship with a six-under final round to finish -14 and AmFam champ on Sunday at University Ridge Golf Course in Madison.

What makes the win even more sweet for Kelly who is the first two-time winner in the tournaments history is that he won it on his home turf, with his family in the audience who he was able to celebrate with right away.

Kelly’s Sunday performance proved to be clutch as he had seven birdies, four of which over his final nine holes to come from behind and beat 2017 champion Fred Couples and Miguel Angel Jimenez by one stroke.

Tournament host Steve Stricker shot a final round 65 to finish tied for seventh with a -9 performance on the weekend.
