Steve Stricker

Born in Edgerton, Wisconsin, Stricker grew up playing golf at Lake Ripley Country Club in nearby Cambridge and the Edgerton Towne Country Club. A 1990 graduate of the University of Illinois, he earned All-American honors as a golf team member in 1988 and 1989. He turned professional in 1990 and began his career on the Canadian Professional Golf Tour, winning two tournaments. He earned his PGA Tour card for the first time after finishing T-18th at the 1993 PGA Tour Q-School. He finished 2nd at his second event, the Northern Telecom Open. He showed improvement each year, finishing 50th on the money list in 1994, 40th in 1995, and 4th in 1996, when he got his first two wins at the Kemper Open and Western Open. After that, he slid back to 130th in 1997. Over the next couple of years, his game had its ups and downs. The highs included a runner-up result at the 1998 PGA Championship and a win at the 2001 WGC-Accenture Match Play Championship. Then he had a drop-off, failing to make the top 125 on the money list for three consecutive years, starting in 2003, and losing his fully exempt status. He missed earning his PGA Tour card in 2005 by two strokes at PGA Tour Q-School, then rediscovered his game while hitting balls out of a trailer in the December snow on the practice range at Cherokee Country Club in Madison, Wis. The hard work started to pay off in 2006. Playing out of the past champions category and asking for sponsor exemptions, he only got into three of the first 17 events of the year. But he finished 3rd at the Shell Houston Open, T-6th at the U.S. Open, and T-2nd at the Booz Allen, ending the year with five top-12 finishes to rank 34th on the money list and earn PGA Tour Comeback Player of the Year.
