The tour members are on the bus traveling to the day’s first stop. Golf is in the conversation as the TVs on the motor coach are tuned in to the U.S. Open.
Reflecting on the first day, Jared Abbrederis is pleased thus far on his first tour experience.
“Good first day,” he said. “Crazy, excited fans. It’s different when you get away from Green Bay. They don’t have the opportunity to see players that much. Lot of people saying they’ve watched me since high school and college.
“Great to hear the support. Something special. I didn’t expect to see that many people. With the band entering the party last night, that was pretty cool.
“Ripon Athletics was cool, to hear about how many teams they do.”
The bus rolls south, with Fort Atkinson the day’s ultimate destination.
