I didn’t play that well in the beginning and I told them. [wife/caddie]Nicki, Im like Weve just got gotta be patient and just keep plugging ahead, Stricker said. It was a different day. It was windy and it was a little harder.
Then, I had the stretch of four holes in which I made four consecutively and that was the difference. I just kept plugging.

Stricker stated, Its time he helped me. You know what, I help him all of the time. He and Nicki took me to the putting green after my first round. They noticed that I didnt putt well the first round, and they corrected a few things. Jerry was quick to help me. He is as familiar with my putting strokes as I am, so we both help each other. This time he was there for me. He is my hero. It was like a miracle and I was running.
