Mark Wilson wins the 2012 Humana Challenge

Watch out PGA Tour, the Cheeseheads look like they are going to dominate 2012. Steve Stricker got things started by winning the 2012 Hyundai Tournament of Champions two weekends ago.

A non-Cheesehead, Johnson Wagner, won the 2012 Sony Open in Hawaii at the Waialae Country Club in Honolulu last weekend.

Mark Wilson got the Cheeseheads back on track winning the 2012 Humana Challenge this weekend. Wilson's win means the Cheeseheads are beating the entire PGA Tour 2-1 to start the 2012 season.

Despite battling winds of up to 35 mph that forced the field to complete the third round on Sunday, Wilson shot 24-under par (66-62-67-69=264) to beat Robert Garrigus, Johnson Wagner, and John Mallinger by two strokes. Wilson notched his fifth career PGA Tour win pocketing $1.01 million in the process.

Following the Humana Challenge, Stricker stayed 5th in the world golf rankings while Wilson moved up to 40th. Jerry Kelly, the most animated Cheesehead golfer, is currently ranked 129th in the world and due for a win to give the 2012 season a Cheesehead hat-trick.
