Steve Stricker (ProDry Lisle Stripe Golf Shirt, PureTouch Limited, DryJoys Tour) finished off a brilliant week of golf with a final round 68 to claim the Memorial Tournament held at Muirfield Village.
He began his final round with a three shot lead thanks to three rounds in the 60's on the previous days. Stricker's torrid pace continued Sunday, shooting an outward nine, 6-under par 30. A weather delay would force Stricker to cease play after the 12th. Upon resuming play, Stricker would make a clutch sand saves on 16 and 17 to take a two shot lead into the 72nd hole. All he would need is a bogey 5 on the last to win the tournament and Stricker did just that by tapping in his bogey putt for the victory. This is Stricker's tenth win on the PGA Tour and the win makes Stricker the highest ranked American golfer on the Official World Golf Rankings.
Here is Stricker's Hole in One on Friday.
Another win by a FootJoy staff pro.
Way to go Stricker. Love this guy. Rough finish but found a way to get it done. Couldn't be happier for the best class act on tour!
A great win by a class guy very happy for him
Got the chance to follow him around the course some of the week and it doesn't take long for others to realize why he is one of my favorite players. Such a genuine, and gentle man and one heck of a player. Great job Steve!
Well done Steve! A hole-in-one and a tournament win! What a week.
What a shot to start a great run. Led all the way. Nice Job.
