Stricker with the lead in final round

KAPALUA, Hawaii – Steve Stricker, who just teed off with a five-stroke lead in Monday’s final round of the Hyundai Tournament of Champions, has held or shared the lead going into the final round of a PGA TOUR event on 14 previous occasions.

His success rate in keeping the 54-hole lead and winning the event is 50 percent.

However, he has never lost a 72-hole tournament in which he’s held the outright lead after 54 holes (six for six).

A year ago at the Hyundai Tournament of Champions, he entered the final round tied for the lead but shot a 2-under 71 and finished tied for fourth.
