I thought Stricker made a valiant effort on Tuesday at Kapalua. Since he was essentially playing off his back leg, to shoot that low while walking the hilliest terrain on the tour was outstanding. He simply was outdone by Dustin Johnson's overpowering performance, especially off the tee. But Dustin also had some short game, witness the chip in eagle following his double on Tuesday. Congrats to Dustin, but it would have been nice to see Stricker start the year with another win at Kapalua--and of course, a contest for all of us on the Forum.
