Stricker completely unfazed despite final-round fade
ARDMORE, Pa. – Perhaps 10 years ago if he shot a 6 over on the final day of a major and tumbled down the leader board, Steve Stricker would be a littler harder on himself.
Sure, it will still sting. The 46-year-old entered Sunday just a shot off the lead. His elusive major – one of the few holes in an otherwise fine career – was well within sight.
But that’s not how it played out for Stricker, who finished at 6-over 286 and tied for eighth at the U.S. Open. And frankly, that’s OK with him.
