ARDMORE, Pa. – Steve Stricker is a part-time golfer these days. Electing to spend more time with his family this year, the 46-year-old has competed in just six events prior to this week’s U.S. Open.
He hardly looks rusty, though.
“I played solid all day. I had a lot of opportunities. I missed a couple that I thought I could have made or it looked good,” he said. “All in all, a good day. It was a good up and down on the last to keep the momentum going.”
In 17 career U.S. Open starts, Stricker has three top-10 finishes, with a best finish of fifth place.
