About the Presenter : Bill Strey

Originally from Illinois, GF sales rep Bill Strey has lived in SE WI for as long as he can remember and calls himself a native Wisconsinite. He is the youngest of four children and his loving parents forced him into hard labor at an early age. He was taught a wide variety of hands-on skills, including finishing; a love for the outdoors; blue-collar work ethic; and how to survive three older sisters. Bill is a fan of all sports and competition, but has lived and breathed golf since he was 5 years old. Bill lives with his wonderful wife Crystal and enjoys time outdoors whenever possible, usually on the golf course.
