Play of the Week 16

June 8, 2011

This weeks POTW goes to Steve Stricker, champion of the Memorial Tournament.

Although a little belated, Stricker’s play this weekend needs to be commended. Stricker played incredibly, including two hole-outs in a four-hole span from Friday to Saturday. Although it’s not quite as impressive as Rocco Mediate’s 4-hole-out performance at CordeValle (the subject of POTW 2 and POTW 2.5), in four holes, Stricker hit an ace and holed out from the fairway on a par 4. He is now ranked 4th in the world, and he stands as the US’s best chance to overtake one of the pesky Euros (Westwood, Donald, and Kaymer) for the #1 ranking.

Although Stricker only managed a one-shot victory, a win is a win, and we’re proud of it.

So here’s to you, Steve. We hope to see you represent us (or, US) well at Congressional.
