Stricker grew up playing golf at nearby country clubs, and later graduated from the University of Illinois. He played with the university’s golf team and earned All-American honors during 1988 and 1989.
The following year, Steve made his professional debut as part of the Canadian Professional Golf Tour. During his time there he won two tournaments, then in 1994 he joined the PGA Tour. Two years after joining, he would secure two wins along with seven other top ten finishes. In 1998, he earned a qualification to the PGA Championship, getting a closely fought runner-up finish to Vijay Singh. He also continued to appear regularly in the US Open, achieving fifth place during 1999 and a total of six top-20 rankings. In 2001, he would win the WGC-Accenture Match Play Championship for a total $1 million prize, significantly boosting his net worth. However, his form then slumped, and he had difficulty achieving a high ranking until his comeback in 2006 when he managed to get seven top-10 finishes on the PGA Tour. He was voted PGA Tour Comeback Player of the Year, and this rejuvenation helped him win his fourth title at The Barclays the following year.
After that victory, Steve became the fourth ranked overall in the Official World Golf Ranking list. The following year, he would elevate to third spot because of a runner-up finish at the Mercedez Benz Championship. His next title would come in 2009, at the Crowne Plaza Invitational at Colonial, against competitors such as Steve Marino and Tim Clark. In the same year, he won the John Deere Classic which was his sixth win on the Tour, and the streak continued as he won the Deutsche Bank Championship, a win that raised him above Tiger Woods in the FedEx Cup Standings at the time. In 2010, he won at the Northern Trust Open and would continue racking-up titles the following year at the 2011 Memorial Tournament. This win solidified his standing as the highest-ranked American golfer in the world, going past Tiger Woods and Phil Mackelson. 2011 continued to be a good year for him, as he won the John Deere Classic and would then get a championship record at the 2011 PGA Championship. In 2013, he announced that he would cut his schedule in half and play fewer tournaments.
For his personal life, it is known that Steve has been married to Nicki Tiziani since 1993, who is often his caddie; they have a daughter. His father-in-law Dennis and brother-in-law Mario Tiziani also played on the PGA Tour.
