Steve Sticker is an American golfer who plays professionally on the US PGA Tour, and although over the last couple of seasons, he plays more on a part time basis than as a full professional, he is still considered one of the flag bearers of the American golfing scene on the Tour.
The American has won 12 titles on the US PGA Tour and although he is yet to win a major title in his long career on the Tour, he came very close to securing a major championship when in 1998; he finished a close second in the PGA Championship.
Jason Dufner, the US Ryder Cup player, and English golfer Simon Khan made brilliant bursts to the leaderboard’s top position early on 3rd day of Doha’s Commercial Bank Qatar Masters. Jason, on a 2 – week trip to the Middle East, was just forty second at halfway, but he went to turn in thirty two and after that he started the back 9 with 2 more birdies.
Paul Casey and David Howell played in 2 back to back Ryder Cups in 2004 and 2006 which resulted in grand victories for them - not only they were team mates, but they were also fourball partners, becoming victorious in 2 matches out of 2.
Both of them were in the world’s top ten and those five years which is generally looked at as a golf player’s peak years - from thirty to thirty five - was beckoning. This is the 5 year spell when experience and talent reflects on the golf course.
Though Phil Mickelson was unable to register a victory in his name at the Deutsche Bank Championship but still he thinks that he has played quite well. Now he thinks he is ready to get started with the FedEx Cup playoff event.
Mickelson recorded a 5-under par 66 after opening his account with three 68s. He tied for the fourth place with 14 shots behind. This was Mickelson’s best finish since the Masters where he tied for the third place. In fact he was unable to finish higher than the 36th spot since May when he tied for the seventh spot at Byron Nelson.
The world’s top ranked golfer Luke Donald was able to match his best finish at The Open Championship, which recently concluded at Royal Lytham & St. Annes, and became the top ranked Englishman in the a Major tournament yet again. However, there was some consolation for the other English golfers as Ryder Cup teammate Ian Poulter managed to find some of his lost form at the final day of the event at Turnberry.
Steve Stricker has admitted that he is struggling with his confidence, as he prepares to tee off at this week’s US Open, following what he describes as a ‘mini slump’.
The experienced 45-year old has four top-10 finishes in nine appearances, in 2012. However, Stricker’s putting has been way below the level that he wanted it to be at this point in the year.
Twenty six year old American, Anthony Kim who memorably rose to fame in 2007 has been sidelined with an uncertain date set on his return to action. The Los Angeles based golfing pro has only managed to make two cuts in competition in 2012 and has not completed a number of competitions this year due to niggling injuries.
In spite of losing the playoffs in the Wells Fargo Championships to Rickie Fowler, Rory McIlroy has scaled the heights to reach the top of the golf rankings once again, having overtaken Luke Donald in the process.
Veteran golfer and former US Open Champion Jim Furyk is heading into the Transitions Championships with the aim of improving his all round game, having made the cut in three out of four attempts this year.
Although that would prove to be a very successful conversion rate for any player, Furyk, on the other hand, has not had the best of starts to the present calendar year 2012 having had no finishes in the top ten in 12 tournaments that he has participated in sp far.
Dustin Johnson has finally made his move and set his foot down on his decision to enter into the Humana Challenge and partner with the foundation set up by William Clinton.
Dustin is quite a known and recognized name in the golfing circuit and has gained quite a number of achievements in his professional career.
His earnings on 4.3 million dollars are enough to show where he currently stands. His dedication and skill is quite unmatched and he manages to bring about consistency to his game play, which is why he has moved on to such great heights.
