Stricker goes winless at Medinah

Madison’s Steve Stricker and his early round playing partner Tiger Woods

Steve Stricker

both went winless at the 39th Ryder Cup as the U.S. fell apart on the final day to lose the Cup 14 1/2 to 13 1/2.  The Americans started the day with a 10-6 advantage and blew the lead.

Stricker lost three times with Tiger Woods as his partner and then lost his singles match on Sunday to Germany’s Martin Kaymer 1-up.  The 45-year-old Stricker was one of U.S. Captain Davis Love III’s four at-large picks.

The only American points on Sunday came from Dustin Johnson, Zach Johnson and Jason Duffner.
