Steve Stricker and Tiger Woods recently recorded the biggest and worst loss the President’s Cup has ever seen. Both Woods and Steve Stricker failed to win a hole on Thursday or make a birdie.
This comes as a great surprise since these two were the unbeatable pair not many years ago in California in which the United States won the tournament. While K.J.Choi and Adam Scott played relentlessly at the Royal Melbourne by keeping the ball in play and making a lot of birdies, Woods and Steve Stricker on the other hand, self destructed them. The international side won seven and six.
This match went twelve holes and the only other match that went so far was in the year 1994, almost a decade ago. The president’s cup held in the year 1994 was memorable for David Frost beat Kenny Perry in the singles and surprisingly by the same score.
Tiger Woods and his previous caddie, Steve Williams, exchanged a businesslike and firm handshake on the first day of the tour at the first hole. Their interaction was limited to the handshake and they did not cross paths the rest of the tournament. Many were expecting fireworks for the two have had a very strained relationship after his caddie made racist comments about Tiger Woods.
Though Steve Stricker and Tiger Woods failed miserable in the tournament, it truly belonged to Adam Scott and K.J.Choi. Adam Scott played beautifully and was very crisp off the tee and also into the firm greens. Adam Scott has got Tiger Wood’s ex caddie Steve Williams as his caddie now and both seem to be gelling along fine.
Steve Stricker confirmed that he was a bit off right since the start of the tour. He acknowledged the fact that he has not been up to the work and seems to have lost his touch.
