What is it about this event and Steve Stricker?
The two-time defending champion at the John Deere Classic started his third round with a birdie at the first hole off a 75-foot, 4-inch putt. Not bad.
No one’s handing him a third trophy, however. The hot putter Chez Reavie enjoyed on Friday has returned Saturday, at least on the first hole as he sank a 26-foot birdie putt.
