Stricker in fifth at halfway point

Published On: Jul 04 2014 06:06:38 PM CDT


Steve Stricker battled to a round of two under par 68 in the second round of The Greenbrier on the PGA tour Friday and trails the leader by three shots.

Stricker says he had some trouble reading the winds and that led to some approach shots that left him with lengthy two-putts for par.

But his dependable putter saved him again as he moved into a tie for fifth place.

Bobby Hurley, III is the leader at nine under par while Stricker is six under for the tournament.

Stricker was a late commitment to play in the Greenbrier, so his usual caddie, Jimmy Johnson, is carrying the bag of Chris Kirk this week, while Stricker hired his wife, Nicki to caddy for him this week.

Ironically, Stricker and Kirk will play in the same group Saturday in the third round.
