With weather forcing a series of stop and starts in the normal flow of the tournament, Steve Stricker still managed to burn up the Greystone golf course in a rain-extended Monday final round of the Regions Tradition. Heading into the second round Friday, Stricker was merely in contention. But he then shot a course record 64 and grabbed a lead he never relinquished.

Play was suspended on Sunday, following nearly an inch of rain and several days of saturation of the course. But the sun came out for the final day, making conditions dry, cool and perfect for golf. Stricker took advantage, finishing the day at 4 under par – 18 under for the tournament.

Stricker, who’s slated to be the Ryder Cup captain for this year’s U.S. team, grabbed his first major win at the Regions Tradition, the first major of the PGA Tour Champions 2019 schedule.RELATED: Alabama Power Junior Clinic teaches lessons about golf and life
