After two titles and seven top 10 finishes in 1996, Stricker has been far less successful so far in 1997. But a seventh place at last week's Quad City Classic at Coal Valley, Illinois, convinced him he was now returning to form.
"My problem was that I was trying to get used to some new equipment," Stricker said after his opening round. "I then had a loss of confidence but now it's coming around. I'm driving a lot better and my confidence is up again.
"After that it was disappointing to finish that way, considering I played pretty good throughout the rest of the round. To finish three over on the last two holes kind of hurts a little."Reuse content
