Steve Stricker Enjoys the Barclays
With a bogey-free 64 today, Steve Stricker is in the lead at the only tournament he's won in the last seven season. His first victory since 2001 came here last year when Stricker made a name for himself by giving Mr. Tiger Woods a run for his money in the FedEx Cup.
Having a decent year by all accounts this season (21st on the FedEx list heading in to the playoffs), Stricker has hit 78 percent of his greens this week at Ridgewood to put himself atop Hunter Mahan (who still hasn't teed off yet) by a shot.
Sometimes the course just fits your eye, and Stricker is doing that in New York. More updates to come, including both an Anthony Kim and Sergio Garcia sighting.
