The affable Wisconsin native, Steve Stricker won the season opening Tournament of Champions at Kapalua with a final round of a four under par 69 to finish the tournament at 23 under par, four strokes clear of fellow FJ Staffers Webb Simpson and Jonathan Byrd.   

Stricker was in style all week wearing the new FJ Performance Apparel and split saddle DryJoys Tour's.  He was, also, in total control of his golf game, attacking the golf course in Saturday's second round.  Stricker made eight birdies and an eagle to finish off the round with a ten under par 63.  The blistering pace gave him a five shot lead over Webb Simpson and the field heading into the third round. 

During the third round, Stricker struggled to make birdies early but did not give up any ground as he birdied the final four holes to retain the five stroke lead he had at the beginning of the day.  Now heading into the final round with a comfortable lead, Stricker kept his head down and continued his steady play to close out the field for the victory.  Stricker lead the field in overall putting, scrambling, bogey avoidance (making only 4 bogeys all week on the rugged Kapalua golf course), and one putt percentage. 

This is Stricker's 8th PGA Tour win in the past 3 years, which is the most amongst any player on the PGA Tour.
