Stricker goes birdie-less
Friday, August 14, 2009
CHASKA, Minn. — You could have gotten long, long odds that one guy would play 36 holes at the PGA Championship without a birdie and his name would be Steve Stricker.
But that’s what happened and no one was more stunned than Stricker.
“I’m very surprised, but I just could never get the speed of the greens,” Stricker said after rounds of 74-77 left him outside the cut in a major for the first time this year.
“I could never get anything going, but then again, it’s tough to get things going if you’re not making birdies.”
