FORT WORTH, TEXAS (AP) - Jerry Kelly as SuperFrog on the tee box.

Kelly paid off his Rose Bowl bet with TCU graduate and fellow PGA Tour player J.J. Henry by putting on the full costume of TCU’s mascot during the Colonial’s pro-am tournament Wednesday.

Henry and Kelly, from Madison, Wis., had a wager on the Rose Bowl. TCU beat Wisconsin 21-19 on New Year’s Day. If Wisconsin won, Henry would have had to don the full Bucky Badger costume.

After posing for pictures on the practice green, including a few without the costume’s oversized head to prove it was actually him inside, Kelly hit a shot on the first tee with Henry’s group that included TCU coach Gary Patterson.

The TCU campus is less than 2 miles from Colonial Country Club.
