In spite of Steve Stricker winning the PGA Tour 12 times many people still consider him to be lacking the adequate amount of determination. It might be due to his not winning any big competition in spite of having quite a few chances at them.
It can also be due to the fact that he’s playing a lot less and skipping competitions. It might also be because family is a bigger priority than winning trophies for him now.
Some people consider him to be lacking a competitive spirit.
Jerry Kelly said that he considers Stricker to be a bit more competitive than he appears.
While Lee Westwood from England has it lucky and confident, United States Tiger Woods has taken a hard hit where he told he was there to win, unfortunately actions proved otherwise.
