Steve Stricker, the golf pro, sees himself in an amazingly foreign land before the US Open that is scheduled to take place at Olympic Club this week. Long viewed as one of the most prominent putters in golf with a stroke which flows like honey, the forty-five year old American player has been scrambling on the course in recent times.
On Tuesday, the twelve times PGA Tour champion, told journalists that previous month has been little unlike what he has been doing in last 5 – 6 years. He just could not get the ball into the hole well like he was doing it for the last few years. Otherwise, he is hitting the ball just fine. He is looking ahead for this week.
Stricker has good rememberings of Olympic, having leveled for 5th spot when US Open took place here in the year 1998. On that year, he played in the final with Lee Janzen. Still, he assumes that his very own window of chance is starting to close as he gets to be victorious in the very 1st major award in an otherwise gleaming career.
Former world number two, Stricker told that now he is 45 years old, his tapering a bit. He thinks that he keeps the ball in play.
Apart from the last month or so, he is playing quite well, though the last month was quite different. He did not take care of his game that he generally does. He wants to be sharper mentally as he wants to get things going.
