Steve Stricker is an US profeesional golfer who is best known for its putting skills. His swing action is not the same as what listed on textbook. It seems he only finished half of the whole swing actions. Stricker was once called ‘shy nice guy’,because of his gentle character.
Steve Stricker was born in Wisconsin. At the same year when he graduated from University of Illinois in 1900, he turned professional. He joined in the Canadian Tour and won twice. From 1994, he began to join the PGA Tour and won eight championships. The most sucessful year of Stricker is 2009. In all,he won 3 championshios that year and ranked the second.
In 1998, Steve Stricker played into contention in the final round of the PGA Championship inRedmond, Washington. Because of a back-nine surge, Vijay Singh beated Stricker and won the victory. This remains Stricker's best result in a major championship. From then on, he began to fall into a slump. In 2004, he lost the qualification for PGA Tour. In 2006, relying on Sponsor’s exemptions, he got into top ten players, which was his seventh top ten. In 2007, he seemed to recover. He participated in the Presidents Cup, won the fourth and received an award, PGA Tour Comeback Player of the Year.
In 2009, it comes his most successful season on tour. He got a sequence of bumper harvests that year when he achieved three tournament victories and won second on the money list. He got the first placce on Bob Hope Classic, Cwown Plaza Invitational and John Deere Classic. He has ranked as high as No. 2 in the Official World Golf Ranking.
In 2010, Stricker achieved his eighth PGA Tour title at 2010 Northern Trust Open and got 70 shots in final round. For this success, he defeated Phil Mickelson and gained his ranking as World No. 2.
With a victory at the 2011 Memorial Tournament in June, Stricker added another splendid accomplishment to his career resume. He held on to the 36-hole lead to eventually win by one stroke over Matt Kuchar and Brandt Jobe. Stricker opened the tournament with a 4 under round of 68 and bettered this on the second day with 67. But this was made specially by the hole-in-one he recorded at the par three of 8th hole, holding a three stroke advantage at the halfway stage. Remarkably he then opened round three with two eagles in the first five holes, openning up a six shot lead midway through round three.Then some uncharacteristic mistakes on the back nine made him fall back towards the rest of the field. However, he got his tenth Tour Title at last. Due to this success Stricker became the highest-ranked American player in the Official World Golf Ranking. He is the No.4 in the world. As to a 44-year-old player, it is really not easy.
Referred to his golf equipment, Steve Stricker signed with Titleist to use Titleist golf clubs, but he still insists using Odyssey Putters. Odyssey White Hot Series Putter is his favoriate putter. Odyssey Putters are available at http://www.golfclubshotsale.com
