A veteran on the professional field, Steve Stricker is one of the most consistent golfers on the US PGA Tour.
Born in the Wisconsin state of the United States of America, Stricker is known for his long drives and calm demeanour on the course. Throughout his long career as a member of the US PGA Tour, the American has won twelve trophies, the most important among them being the World Golf Championship – Accenture Match Play Championship which he won in 2001.
Apart from that, he has also won two FedEx Cup playoff events as well. 2009 was the best season the veteran golfer had as a professional as he finished the season second on the Money list on the back of three wins on the US PGA Tour and some consistent displays in the other events as well.
Having turned professional in 1990, Steve Stricker joined the Canadian Professional Golf Tour, which was a major feeder Tour for the US PGA Tour at the time and managed to win two titles as well.
He was given his Tour card for the US PGA Tour in 1994 and won his first two tournaments in 1996.
Stricker is a very consistent performer in the major events but despite his consistency, he has never managed to win a single major title in his long career. The closest that he managed to come was in 1998 when he finished as the runner up in the PGA Championship in 1998.
The US Open is where Steve Stricker arguably plays his best golf, having finished inside the top 20 in the event a whopping six times.
Stricker was stripped of his Tour card in 2004 following a consistently bad patch of form for him but he returned to the US PGA Tour in 2006 on the back of sponsorships.
