While playing at Kapalua, Steve Stricker has told the reports that he would probably not come back the rest of the year, or in other words, a semi-retirement. He has decided to participate only in the majors and World Golf Championships being held at America. He is an earner of $25 million in PGA Tour and he has earned them all in six-year-long professional career. After making a comeback in the course really after he was shunted to the list of probable players who needed to make a comeback for consecutively two years, he does not wish to put any more focus on the golf all his life. As evident from his statements, he wants to give his family more time, fetching his kids to school and other things.
When already in a rank as number 2 according to the official world golf rankings, Steve Stricker had been thinking of signing off for good. But things were not easy back then, now that he has buckled up to face his decision with full determination, he is quite light-weighed right now. It is not that this decision has taken shape due to drought in his victory throughout his career, he had loads of win and won the Tournament of Champions only last year that marked the 12th win in his professional career, it is just that he never wanted to be a golf devotee.
Steve Stricker will not be facing the top four players at Kapalua namely Rory McIlroy, Tiger Woods, Luke Donald and Justin Rose because they are not attending the same. After the Kapalua, he will be engaging himself in a bit of philanthropy with American Family Insurance aimed at lending out a helping hand to the adolescents. He will donate the award money received from Payne Stewart Award and playing on the Ryder Cup team.
