Steve Stricker had a change of heart ahead of this week's RBC Heritage, backing out of the event on Monday morning.
Stricker was last seen at the Houston Open, making a last-ditch effort to earn his ticket to Augusta National. He ended up missing the cut after rounds of 67-75=142 (-2). His previous four starts showed results of WIN-T12-WIN-T2 with three of those four starts coming on the PGA TOUR Champions circuit. The 51-year-old will continue to have a light PGA TOUR workload which makes him tough to roster on season-long rosters. Apr 9 - 5:04 PM

Arriving fresh of a PGA TOUR Champions victory, Steve Stricker takes his talents to Palm Harbor, Florida, for this week's Valspar Championship.

Stricker was hovering all over the winner's circle on the senior circuit and he finally got the job done in Arizona last week. Perhaps that hoisting of the trophy will spark some fire for Stricker who hasn't won on the PGA TOUR since the 2012 Tournament of Champions. Recently on the big stage, Stricker is 2-for-2 this season with finishes of T31 and T26 at the Waste Management Phoenix Open and AT&T Pebble Beach Pro-Am. Gamers looking to ride last week's win could certainly throw their chips on Stricker this week. At the very least, you are likely to escape with a cut made and a moderate paycheck.

Playing Pebble Beach Golf Links, World No. 127 Steve Stricker concocted a 2-under-par 36-34=70 in the third round of the AT&T Pebble Beach Pro-Am to post 11-under 204, T5 on the leaderboard, which is where he began, and three swings shy of 54-hole co-leaders Ted Potter, Jr. and Dustin Johnson.

The 50-year-old, who celebrates his birthday on Feb. 23rd, is chasing a 13th TOUR title in 479 career events, first since the 2012 Hyundai TOC where he was the 54-hole leader by five, shot 4-under 69 to win by three over Martin Laird. He'll play out of the penultimate group in Round 4 with Troy Merritt and Jason Day (with amateur partner). The Wisconsinite found 11 (of 14) fairways and 12 greens in regulation, gaining strokes in all five strokes gained sub-categories, highlighted by a 1.468 SG: Around-the-Green. He squared two bogey-5s at holes 1 and 3 (3-putt from 40'0"), outpaced by four birdies at 2, 6, 10 (from 15'1") and a 22-footer at 14 from just off the green. The Illinois product posted 1.833 putts per GIR and 0.339 SG: Putting with 28 total putts.

Playing Monterey Peninsula CC, World No. 127 Steve Stricker fashioned a 6-under-par 31-34=65 in the second round of the AT&T Pebble Beach Pro-Am, currently up 27 places to T5 on 9-under 134, three shy of 36-hole clubhouse leader Beau Hossler.

This is the Wisconsinite's ninth appearance with three prior top 25s among four cashes. His best is T13 in 1995 and also posted a T23 last year (72-70-70-69). The 50-year-old, who celebrates his birthday on Feb. 23rd, is making his second start of the season after a T31 at last week's Phoenix Open. Beginning off No. 10 tee, he found 10 (of 13) fairways and 15 greens in regulation, cancelling a lone bogey-5 at 18 with four circles at 10, 11, 1 and 3, adding eagle-3 at 16. The Illinois product registered 1.733 putts per GIR with 29 total putts. After opening with a four-birdie one-bogey 69 on Spyglass Hill, he heads to Pebble Beach GL for Round 3.

Steve Stricker will kick off his season in the desert as he prepares this week's Waste Management Phoenix Open.

Stricker has been dormant since his missed cut at THE NORTHERN TRUST last August. Unofficial events since then include the Presidents Cup (where he played the role of Captain) and QBE Shootout (where he teamed up with Sean O'Hair to win the event). Similar to 2017, Stricker will use the WM Phoenix Open as his first event of the calendar year. He finished T42 here last year before ultimately playing in 13 PGA TOUR events and 6 PGA TOUR Champions events. Stricker finished T3 or better in four of the six events versus the greybeards but could only muster up two top 15s on the big stage (T7, DEAN & DELUCA; T5, John Deere Classic). Given his age and limited schedule, it's hard for gamers to know where his form sits, but he's generally proven to be a steady cut-making option, regardless of how recently he's pegged it.
Jan 29 - 6:17 PM

United States captain Steve Stricker has chosen his two picks to fill out the Presidents Cup squad, electing to fill the void with Charley Hoffman and Phil Mickelson.

The United States will square off with the International squad at Liberty National in three weeks. The U.S. side has won six straight editions of this bi-annual event. There is nothing surprising about these picks as Hoffman finished 11th in the automatic qualifier rankings and Phil Mickelson provides decades of experience to a team that brings plenty of youth to the table. Mickelson has been on every Ryder Cup and Presidents Cup team since 1994 (23 events) and that streak continues with this captain's pick. The United States team hasn't lost to the Internationals since 1998, making them a heavy favorite, but the matches have been very close over the last two editions and this year's International side brings a very top-heavy team to the table. This will be no cakewalk.

Three-time champ and World No. 81 Steve Stricker hung up a 7-under-par 30-34=64 in the final round of the John Deere Classic to post 15-under 269, up 34 spots on the live leaderboard to T1, good for the early 72-hole clubhouse lead and tying the low round of the day thus far with Morgan Hoffmann. UPDATE: With play completed, Stricker finished T5.

The 50-year-old entered his 16th Deere as the event's all-time earnings leader and will add a nice tally to that sum. Where exactly he ends up remains to be seen, but he'll record his ninth top 25 in Silvis, Illinois, and eighth top 10, first since T10 in 2013. This was the University of Illinois product's 10th start of the season, sixth top 25 and second top 10 (T7, DEAN & DELUCA). After kicking off in 73-67-65, he began T35 on 8-under, eight back of 54-hole leader Patrick Rodgers. On 11 (of 14) fairways and 14 greens in regulation, the Wisconsinite was blemish-free 8-under thru 17 holes before walking off with bogey-5, missing a par-saver from 10'3". He carded eight birdies, including two hat-tricks, dropping three from between 10 and 20 feet and posting 1.571 putts per GIR and 1.672 SG: Putting. Stricker is in the field at next week's Open Championship.

Three-time John Deere Classic champion and World No. 81 Steve Stricker makes his 16th appearance in Silvis, Illinois, and arrives at 121st in the FedExCup standings.

The 50-year-old is the all-time earnings leader at the Deere, banking $3,035,726, highlighted by three wins in a row between 2009-11. He's chased those with progressively worse finishes of T5-T10-T11-T35 and T52 last year (70-68-68-72), still stellar as he battles a younger crowd. The University of Illinois product is already IN next week's Open Championship, so can concentrate on improving his FEC position. He's missed the Playoffs just once since their inception, finishing 176th in 2015 on only nine starts. This is the Wisconsinite's 10th start this season, checking in with five top 25s, including a T16 in his most recent start at the U.S. Open, and a season-best T7 at the DEAN & DELUCA.

Wisconsin native Steve Stricker pieced together rounds of 67-65=132 (-10) during the U.S. Open sectional qualifier held in Memphis, Tennessee, good for the top spot on the leaderboard. After earning his seat he withdrew from this week's FedEx St. Jude Classic to set his full attention on Erin Hills.

Stricker was playing a full schedule over the past month in hopes of earning a spot into the 117th U.S. Open Championship which is being played in his home state of Wisconsin. He has been playing well but still needed a win at TPC Southwind to secure a spot via the OWGR. Stricker removed that pressure by blitzing the qualifier with 12 birdies over 36 holes, offsetting a pair of bogeys. Eight other golfers qualified out of Memphis: 133- Andres Romero, Troy Merritt, Chez Reavie, Harris English, Garrett Osborn; 134- Trey Mullinax; 135- Xander Schauffele, Jonathan Randolph.

Past champ and World No. 98 Steve Stricker painted a season-low 7-under-par 30-33=63 in the final round of the DEAN & DELUCA Invitational to conclude on 6-under 274, up 25 places on the live leaderboard to T7 and good for the low round in the clubhouse and the low round of the week. UPDATE: With play completed, Stricker's 63 was the low round and he finished in a three-way T7.

After opening in 72-71-68, the 2009 winner began T32 on 1-over, five shy of the overnight top 10. He was bogey-free 8-under thru 14 holes, circling four sets of back-to-backs before suffering a lone square at the par-4 15th (failed scramble) which completed his scoring. The 50-year-old landed eight (of 14) fairways and 12 greens in regulation, gaining 3.298 strokes tee-to-green and 6.653 SG: Total. Seven of his birdies were conventional with four falling from between nine and 30 feet, kicking off with a pitch-in 4 at the first from 36'10" away. The Wisconsinite posted 1.417 putts per GIR and 3.355 SG: Putting, easily brushing aside a previous season-best 67 at the WMPO/R1. This is his fourth top 25 of the season in seven starts, first top 10, and first top 10 since solo 4th at the 2016 Open Championship.

Steve Stricker will be making his 11th appearance at this week's DEAN & DELUCA Invitational as he sets his eyes on Colonial Country Club.

Stricker is 8-for-10 at Colonial CC, highlighted by his 2009 victory. He didn't go wire-to-wire, but he positioned himself T1-1-T2-1 with rounds of 63-63-69-68=263 (-17). Splitting his time across tours, Stricker hasn't flourished on the PGA TOUR Champions circuit, posting four top 15s but failing to win so far. On the bright side, his transition to the senior circuit hasn't lessened his results on the PGA TOUR as he enters with a 5-for-6 record this season. Gamers looking for a cut-maker this week should give Stricker a strong look this week.

Due to a dangerous weather situation, the final round of the Zurich Classic of New Orleans was suspended at 10:03 am CT with players being removed from the course. UPDATE: Restart scheduled for 4:30 pm unless additional inclement weather occurs.

Tournament officials had pro-actively moved R4 tee times forward to a 6:40 am start off both sets of tees. All 36 teams are on the course with the duo of Steve Stricker and Jerry Kelly making a nice move in four-ball action. The Wisconsinites were bogey-free 5-under thru 11 holes, 15 under total, and moved up the board to T6 when the horn sounded. When play resumes, the 50-somethings will be at the par-4 12th with Stricker on the green in regulation looking at a 24'4" birdie try.

Steve Stricker readies for his 16th appearance at this week's Zurich Classic of New Orleans, this time pairing up with Jerry Kelly for the new team format.

The Wisconsin natives bring plenty of experience to the table, playing this event a total of 31 times and arriving with a combined age of 100. Stricker brings a career record in team play events of 14-12-1, most recently going 3-1-0 at the 2013 Presidents Cup. Stricker posted a T16 in his latest PGA TOUR start (81st Masters) before collecting a T8 at the Bass Pro Shops Legends of Golf on the senior circuit. If experience is a key part of your grading scale this week, the Stricker & Kelly combo have to rise to the top.

Steve Stricker takes his talents to Palm Harbor, Florida, ahead of his seventh appearance at this week's Valspar Championship.

Stricker missed the cut in his first two trips to Innisbrook Resort but he's rattled off top 15s in each of his last four visits. The most recent was last year's T7 which was his first Valspar start since 2010. More recently, the Presidents Cup Captain has just two starts since the new season started. On the bright side, he's earned a paycheck in both, grabbing a T42 at the Waste Management Phoenix Open before a T23 at the AT&T Pebble Beach Pro-Am. The recently-turned 50-year-old will have the option to peg it on the Champions Tour from now on, but he's proven that he can still hang with the big boys. Gamers looking for a steady cut-maker should look in his direction this week.

Steve Stricker concocted a 4-under-par 34-33=67 to open his week at the Waste Management Phoenix Open.

Stricker is making his first start of the new campaign, but his short game was in mid-season form today at TPC Scottsdale. He showcased a lot of that magic early, splashing home a 10-footer for birdie at the par-4 first and following that up with a hole-out birdie from 88'7" at the 2nd. The 50-year-old sprinkled in three more birdie conversions from outside 10 feet before his round was over. He walked off the course gaining 1.90 strokes around-the-green and 1.58 strokes putting. In 15 previous starts at the WM Phoenix Open, Stricker has collected just one top 10, so it will be interesting to see if he can maintain this pace for three more days.
