During the phone interview for this story, Kelly was watching the NHL playoffs in his hotel room on the night before the HP Byron Nelson Championship in Dallas. With violent thunderstorms and tornadoes raging outside, he was yelling at the TV during the first game between his beloved Chicago Blackhawks and the Detroit Red Wings. "I have a friendly wager with Mike Weir," he laughs. Canadian Weir is another huge hockey fan on the Tour. (Kelly, who has the looks of a hockey player, also follows the NHL's San Jose Sharks because of his friendship with Madison native and University of Wisconsin graduate Adam Burish, the team's right winger.) Though Kelly sometimes feels like he still practices and plays hockey, he chalks up the aches and pains to age. The way he's golfing this year, however, we might soon be talking about him as one of the oldest winners on the PGA Tour. On other PGA Tour topics: Kelly thinks belly putters should be banned and blood testing done. And he thinks it's essentially a dead issue bringing the Tour back to Wisconsin after the US Bank Championship in Milwaukee was axed from the schedule several years ago. DOWNTOWN DELAFIELD 55
