Steve Stricker

Born in Edgerton, Wisconsin, Stricker grew up playing golf at both Lake Ripley Country Club in nearby Cambridge and at the Edgerton Towne Country Club. A 1990 graduate of the University of Illinois, he earned All-American honors as a member of the golf team in 1988 and 1989. Turned professional in 1990 and began his career on the Canadian Professional Golf Tour, where he won two tournaments. Earned his PGA Tour card the first time when he finished T-18th at the 1993 PGA Tour Q-School. Finished 2nd at his second event, the Northern Telecom Open. 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. Won the Comeback Player of the Year again in 2007 with $4.6 million in earnings and a victory at the debut FedExCup event, The Barclays. Had a breakout year in 2009, winning three times and earning $6.3 million to finish 2nd on the money list and 3rd in the FedExCup standings. One of his wins came at a FedExCup Playoff, the Deutsche Bank Championship. Was a member of 1996, 2007, 2009, 2011 and 2013 U.S. Presidents Cup Teams, and 2008, 2010 and 2012 Ryder Cup U.S. Teams. He was captain of the 2017 U.S. Presidents Cup Team. Will serve as U.S. Captain of the 2020 Ryder Cup at Whistling Straits.
2009 Notes: Enjoyed a banner year, with career-best numbers in wins (3), runner-up finishes (2), top-10s (11) and top-25s (16).
2010 Notes: With two wins during the season, finished 7th in the final FedExCup standings to become one of just three players (Phil Mickelson and Jim Furyk) to finish inside the top 15 all four FedExCup seasons.
2011 Notes: Only player on the PGA Tour to record multiple wins in the last three seasons. Made all 19 of his cuts for the second consecutive season and entered 2012 with 42 consecutive cuts made. Withdrew from the BMW Championship due to neck and shoulder pain that caused weakness in his left hand. Despite the WD, he qualified for the next week's Tour Championship. He is one of three players to qualify all five years during the FedExCup, along with Phil Mickelson and Hunter Mahan. Playing on his fourth Presidents Cup team, compiled a 2-2-0 record, including a singles victory over Y.E. Yang.
2012 Notes: Opened 2012 with a win at the Hyundai Tournament of Champions. Earned a T-2nd at the WGC-Bridgestone Invitational while making 18 of 19 cuts with seven top-10s. Placed 18th on the money list. Played on the U.S. Ryder Cup team, going 0-4, including a singles loss to Martin Kaymer. Finished the year 20th in the FedExCup standings and 18th on the money list. Kept his streak alive of playing in all four FedExCup Playoff events.
2013 Notes: Announced at the Hyundai that he was going into semi-retirement and would play a limited schedule in 2013 and afterward. Finished 2nd at both the Hyundai Tournament of Champions and WGC-Cadillac Championship. Didn't play at the British Open to spend time with his family, as he and his wife celebrated their 20th wedding anniversary. They went on a ski trip and while Mickelson was winning the British, Stricker had an accident on the slopes in which he tore his right hamstring. The injury healed enough for him to play at the WGC-Bridgestone and PGA Championship. Had a great run in the FedExCup Playoffs. Didn't play at The Barclays, but finished 2nd at the Deutsche Bank, T-4th at the BMW Championship and T-2nd at the Tour Championship, where he finished two shots behind winner Henrik Stenson. Stricker, Mickelson, and Mahan are the only three players to reach the Tour Championship all seven years of the FedExCup era. For the year, he finished 3rd in the FedExCup standings and 7th on the money list. Playing in his fifth Presidents Cup, posted a record of 3-2-0 in five matches, including a 2-0-0 mark in foursomes.
2014 Notes: Only played 11 events, with his best finish a T-6th at the Memorial. Defended his title with Bo Van Pelt at the unofficial CVS Caremark Charity Classic. Played most of the year with a torn labrum in his left hip, and the injury got so bad that he missed his first FedExCup Playoffs. Placed 116th in the FedExCup rankings and 89th on the money list. Was an assistant captain to Tom Watson at the Ryder Cup matches. Tried to play in the Hero World Challenge and Franklin Templeton, but was still in pain and two days before Christmas, underwent back surgery.
2015 Notes: Two weeks before the Masters, Stricker started preparing to play golf in Naples, Fla. Despite a little stiffness, he felt good and was able to walk the course. He practiced at Augusta the week before, then attended the Final Four in college basketball to watch Wisconsin play before returning to Augusta. He finished T-28th at the Masters and that, along with a T-27th at the Crowne Plaza Invitational at Colonial, were his best finishes of the year. Only played in nine events and finished 176th in the FedExCup standings and 180th on the money list.
2016 Notes: At the Valspar Championship, Stricker shared the 36-hole lead on the strength of a second-round 66 before shooting weekend rounds of 72-73 to finish T-7th for his first top-10 of the season. Making his first start in 10 years at the FedEx St. Jude Classic, he joined Phil Mickelson and Brooks Koepka as runners-up with rounds of 66-71-66-67. They ended the tournament at 10 under par, three shots behind winner Daniel Berger. The T-2nd finish marked his best showing on the PGA Tour since finishing T-2nd at the 2013 TOUR Championship, the result also secured a spot at the British Open. There, Stricker finished 4th for his third top-10 of the year. He played 15 events in 2016, and ranked 76th in the FedExCup standings and 74th on the money list. He ended the year with a 2nd-place showing with teammate Jerry Kelly at the Franklin Templeton Shootout.

In his first Champions Tour event, Stricker finished 2nd at the Tucson Conquistadores Classic, one shot behind winner Tom Lehman. He held a two-shot lead through 15 holes in the final round, but a pair of critical miscues down the stretch proved costly. He three-putted for bogey at 16, then hit his tee shot into the water at the final hole, leading to a bogey that sealed his fate after Lehman birdied 16 and 17. Also was T-3rd at the Mississippi Gulf Resort Classic, T-3rd at the American Family Insurance and T-3rd at the 3M Championship. At the end of the year won the QBE Shootout with partner Sean O'Hair.
