Steve Stricker Dealing With Herniated Disk
Tests have confirmed that Steve Stricker has a herniated disk in his neck. The next step for the highest-ranked American golfer is figuring out what to do about it.
Stricker’s agent at IMG, Jon Heaton, said Wednesday that an MRI confirmed the neck injury. He went on to say Stricker is not feeling any pain, although he is weak in his left arm.
Stricker is currently consulting specialists and evaluating treatment options.
Still to be decided however, is whether Stricker is fit enough to play in the Presidents Cup Nov. 17-20. U.S. captain Fred Couples has said if Stricker can’t play, he would be replaced by PGA champion Keegan Bradley.
