GOLF CHANNEL’S BRANDEL CHAMBLEE GIVES HIS TAKE: Steve Stricker has averaged better than eight top 10s a year the last five seasons, but in 2009-10 Steve finally learned to drive the ball straight. For years it was a weakness he couldn’t fix, and it’s why he hasn’t had a top-5 finish in a major in over a decade. This newfound accuracy is a big part of the reason he has won five times in the last two seasons and why, even in a year in which he turns 44, he has his best chance ever of finally becoming a major champion.
