Pro golf player Steve Stricker, now 46, may have got the rule for playing on the PGA Tour. By taking the decision quite early to only take part in few golf events and spend some extra time with his friends and family members, he might have put up a draft for the rest of the golfers to follow. Now, Steve has reached to FedEx Cup Playoffs in a relaxed and rested mood ready to go the course.
Let’s see how it worked for the veteran golfer who is looking to join Champions Tour in years to come. Stricker played in 11 tournaments, made 11 cuts, ended in the top 10 six times. He has taken around US$ 3.5 Million dollars that does not add what looks to be a hefty paycheck at BMW Championship.
The thing that Stricker did not act this year, was to seal a tournament. Earlier in the year, Steve ended 2nd next to US golfer Tiger Woods at WGC Cadillac Championship at Doral. He even did not take part on the 1st week of the play offs to attend marriage ceremony. Steve was able to start his playoff campaign in 20th spot. After ending 2nd at Deutsche Bank, he made it to the 8th spot.
Steve is 1 stroke off the lead at the Conway Farms as the game begins on Sunday, and endures to get out of there in the 4th spot if he ends in 2nd position or better. Jim Furyk has got the lead when they tee it up, but people have seen Jim fold in a final round several times earlier for couple of years. Therefore, the door could be open for Steve to get to Atlanta as high as 2nd spot.
