For the fifth consecutive week, a FootJoy player claimed victory on the PGA TOUR as Steve Stricker (SYNR-G style #53883, PureTouch Limited glove) closed with a 1-under 70 Sunday for a two-shot victory over fellow FJ player Luke Donald (FJ ICON MyJoys) at the Northern Trust Open.Stricker finished with a 16-under 268 total and won for the eighth time in his career and the fourth time in his last 15 starts. He also moved up to No. 2 in the world golf rankings for the second time in his career. Stricker didn’t make it easy on himself, having to grind for pars as Donald kept pouring in birdies. But after Donald missed two short birdie attempts, Stricker fired off two straight birdies to restore a comfortable margin. “It was hard today,” Stricker said. “I aged a lot out there. It was a grind from the get-go.”Stricker seemed to struggle all day, missing several greens to the left but he had five consecutive one-putt greens and continued to get himself out of minor jams.Half of Stricker’s eight career victories have come in the last eight months dating to his playoff win at Colonial. He turns 43 later this month, and shows no sign of letting up.
congrats to steve and luke as well for a great showing.
What a great win! Not to mention another FJ victory... the trend continues.....
Awesome victory. He really did grind out there. Always great to see a nice guy win, especially if he's a FJ player.
To see him in unfamiliar territory being ahead by 6 going into Sunday, he had to steady himself, reach down deep, and pull out the win. Glad he has such a good head on his shoulders. Great win and 5 in a row for FJ.
My favorite golfer comes through again. Somebody needs to get him some icon's. Just like steve us here in WI are restricted to hitting out of heated driving ranges. Not that much fun.
Congratulations to FJ and Steve. What a great start for Stricker.
I love that guy... Glad he could keep up the momentum in 2K10!
WITH A VERY REPEATABLE SWING AND PUTTING STROKE I CAN SEE MANY MORE WEEKS LIKE THIS FOR STEVE STRICKER.
CONGRATS STEVE, WELL DONE.
A fantastic start for Steve and another win for FJ & Titleist. The wins keep piling up and we hope that FJ will continue to run up the wins. With Stricker and the others sporting the FJ line the wins should grow and grow.
This could be the guy to take over number one in the world rankings. Smooth, steady, repeatable.... And an all aroung great guy. Congrats to Steve Stricker!
What great win and what a great and humble guy. He really shows his emotions, especially after a win. I think he has cried almost every time he's won. Good for him and good for golf.
If the trailer worked for him, I'm hoping my shed will work for me.
Congrats Mr. Stricker! Score one for the good guys.
