The Strick

AJAR

Hi all,

This guys is amazing. I can't believe his stats with everything 100 yards and in.

He really does know how to use his 'surgical' tools (as Bob Rotella calls it).

I've watched Dave Philips' review of Steve Stricker's short approach shots and really learnt from it but is it possible to get more tips or analysis of the Strick - perhaps from the man himself? I think this guy's approach shots and putting really justifies more interrogation for us all to learn.

    Loved that he didn't need a 'gift from Freddie, well done!

    It's amazing what his "limited schedule" has done for his game, not to mention his peace of mind and family time.   Whay to go Strick...finish this thing ILLINI Strong.

    Strick is one of my favorites on tour.  He's such a SAVAGE!

    Me too. It's hilarious. But you know what, it's absolutely true when you consider his personality VS his stats. Go Strick!!

    I'd love to see a tape of the putting lession he gave to TW.  It must have had some good stuff.

    I love Stricker.  His swing is so simple and on plane.  With the wedges, it's great how he takes the hands completely out of the swing.  Straight back, straight through.  Doesn't overspin anything and his feel for those in between yardages is better than any player out there.  Plus he's one of the best putters on tour.  I'd take every aspect of his game in a second.

    Man, Strick just keeps getting better. He just eagled the par 4 15th at the BMW with a swish approach shot.

    It would appear that staying away like he ahs done has improved his game. He stays in the mix for the FedEx Cup and he just may be the man to win. His performances are really outstanding and he has been credited with possibly being the best golfer of all time.

    And he is doing it with Titleist equipment. Day in and day out, Stricker is showing the way and making believers out of all the pros.

    His wedge play is top notch! He has a pretty consistent short game. I really do hope to see him more next year! I can't wait until next month at the Village. His short game will come in handy.

    Hello. Can you tell me what version (model year) of the ProV1x Strick plays?

    Thanks!

    Although Steve is not one to switch very often, he switched from the 2011 version to the 2013 ProV1x the day before the Tour Championship.

    And did he make a showing of that new ball? Stricker has been my favorite golfer since I began really following this game and it has proven to be quite a ride. And now that he is not playing as often, I really miss him in many of the tournaments. What I admire the most about him is that he is a loyalist to his sponsors and his family and friends. How can you not admire a guy that spends as much of his spare time with his family and his buddies. He loves hunting and he stays in Wisconsin to be close to those things he loves the most, unlike others who profess to be dedicated and then show that they are not.

    For me, it is STEVE STRICKER,  all the way. He has my support as long as he golfs.

    Thanks for the info. That's very interesting.  I know he used to play the '07 ProV1 until recently switching to the ProV1x (past year or 2).  

    Do you know his motivation for switching from the V1 to the the V1x, abd/or why he switched from the '11 version to the '13 version?

    I apologize if I'm asking for too much detail.  If you didn't already assume, I'm a huge fan of Steve. Also, I have a very similar "dead hands" swing that does not generate excessive spin.  That's why I'm curious to know why he prefers the V1x over the V1.

    Thanks!!
