At Kapalua, Steve Stricker closed the deal easily enough, relatively speaking, bringing the final-day lead into the Hyundai Tournament of Champions and leaving with it as well. Stricker's four-under 69 was more than good enough to hold off the field, and Stricker continues to burnish his credentials. Is this the year he finally closes the deal and wins that elusive major? No better way to begin the year than a W, yes? Oh, and Stricker currently leads the FedEx Cup points race, for those of you keeping score. Next up: the Sony Open, still in Hawaii. Rough life, huh?
