KAPALUA, Hawaii – With the final group now having reached the back nine in Monday’s final round, the advantage would seem to be in Steve Stricker’s favor.
Stricker leads the 27-man field this week in back nine scoring average. He’s a collective 14 under through the first three rounds on the back nine of the Plantation Course.
The last five holes have been particularly productive for Stricker – he’s a collective 13 under on those closing holes this week, and he birdied each of the final four holes in Sunday’s third round.
