Wild Stat: 14-Year Trophyless Streak Busted

With last Sunday turning out a drought-busting day for fan faves Phil Mickelson, Michelle Wie and Steve Stricker (PGA Tour Champions), it brought an end to a combined 14 years, 5 ½ months of winless futility.

Mickelson had gone 1,687 days since lifting the Claret Jug at Muirfield, while Wie’s wait lasted 1,351 days after winning the U.S. Women’s Open at Pinehurst.

Both, though, are dwarfed by Stricker’s trophy-less spell – 2,247 days since finishing atop the 2012 Tournament of Champions at Kapalua.
