"I'm hearing it all over the place"
By mustang6560 on 3/28/13
Steve Stricker is regarded as one of the best putters on the PGA Tour.

Ever since he gave Tiger Woods a public putting lesson ahead of the WGC-Cadillac Championship (which Tiger won), a lot of other colleagues have reached out to him for advice on the green.
"I'm hearing it all over the place," Stricker said. "Some of them are joking and I think some are serious."

Stricker is happy to help, but doesn't want to be distracted from his own game. He talked about balancing the two with Dave Stockton Sr., who developed a reputation as a putting guru when he was on tour and now coaches several players.

"He said, what you have to do is, if you're going to help a guy, just tell the guy, 'You never got help from me, so the word doesn't get out,"' Stricker said. "That's not the way I am, I guess. Makes sense that you still have to pay attention to what you're doing. Otherwise, you get caught up in everybody else and what they need to fix in their game and your game goes by the wayside all of a sudden."
Maybe the PGA Tour should enact an anti-fraternizing rule — for Steve's sake!

It's only a matter of time before Steve decides to fully retires, and when he does I wouldn't be surprised to see him become a short game coach. He is one of the best short game players ever!
