Can Stricker rebound?

Steve Stricker has done some miraculous things over the past three years at the John Deere Classic. He's going to need more of the same to win for a record-tying fourth straight time. Stricker, who got as close as one shot to leader Troy Matteson, took a costly bogey 5 on the short 14th hole. Stricker drove it into the left hazard, took a penalty, hit a nifty pitch to 5 feet and then missed the putt. That dropped him to 17 under, three shots behind Matteson. Stricker has since bogeyed the 15th hole after three-putting from 90 feet, and is at 16 under for the tournament. So is the streak over? Or can Stricker bounce back and pull off the four-peat?
