Today, U.S. Team Captain Tiger Woods announced Fred Couples, Zach Johnson and Steve Stricker as three of his captain’s assistants for the 2019 Presidents Cup, which will return to The Royal Melbourne Golf Club in Melbourne, Australia, for a third time Dec. 9-15, 2019.
Steve Stricker does not yet play the PGA Tour Champions full time, for which those he is playing against surely are thankful.
Stricker, 51, won the inaugural Sanford International going away on Sunday, when he birdied three of the first four holes at Minnehaha Country Club in Sioux Falls, S.D., led by five at the turn and won by four.
Last year, he also advanced through sectional qualifying and went on to tie for 16th place at Erin Hills.
Stricker was the only Wisconsin golfer to make it through sectional qualifying this year. Amateur Matt Tolan of Eau Claire shot 71-70 in Springfield, Ohio, but missed the cut by three shots.
Steve Stricker pulled away on the back nine Sunday at Fallen Oak to win the Rapiscan Systems Classic for his second straight PGA Tour Champions victory.
The 2017 American Family Insurance Championship golf tournament raised over 1.6 million dollars for charities, tournament organizers announced Monday. In its second year, the PGA Tour Champions event raised $1.625 million, surpassing the 2016 total by $535,500.
Following in the successful footsteps of the inaugural tournament, the 2017 American Family Insurance Championship raised $1,625,000 for charity in only its second year, tournament and PGA TOUR officials announced today, surpassing the 2016 total by $535,500.
It may be an unofficial money event on the PGA Tour, but a win is a win for Steve Stricker and Sean O’Hair, neither of whom have won since 2012. They ended their droughts on Sunday with a better-ball eight-under 64 to finish at 26-under 190 and win the QBE Shootout by two shots at Tiburon Golf Club in Naples, Fla.
Years come and go with a greater velocity for Steve Stricker these days and the Madison golfer packed so much into the first nine months of 2017, he figured it was a good time for a break. Stricker confirmed Tuesday that he will skip the Charles Schwab Cup playoffs as he continues to re-charge his 50-year-old battery that was put to the test this year like never before.
“They came in here riding a ton of momentum and a ton of confidence,” Stricker said. “It was about getting out of their way.”
On a misty weekday morning at Madison, Wisconsin’s Cherokee Country Club, Steve Stricker arrives in an appropriately smart-casual ensemble: starched blue button-up, dark jeans, no hat.
