Steve Stricker's older brother dies at 51


Steve Stricker’s older brother, Scott, passed away Saturday in Wisconsin, the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reported. He was 51.

Scott Stricker’s condition became public earlier this year when he underwent a liver transplant in February. After the procedure his kidneys stopped functioning properly, and he had been in and out of intensive care. 

Steve Stricker, 47, told the Sentinel over the summer that his brother, who suffered from Crohn's disease, had been the focus of his family for much of the season and that golf had “taken a back seat.”

The funeral service will be held Wednesday in Edgerton.
