Stricker Almost Walked Away Entirely!?

Doug Ferguson writes about Steve Stricker's new condensed schedule.

I didn't read them all, but I don't believe I read this mention of all-out retirement in any of the stories touching on Stricker's decision to cut back in 2013:

The original plan was to defend his title at Kapalua and walk away. Over the holidays, he struck a compromise of 10 or 11 events.

"What I told Nicki was if I could just make enough money to pay our yearly expenses as a family, I'm fine with that," Stricker said at Kapalua. "If we don't have to touch anything I've put away, I don't need to do what I'm doing just to make money. I'd rather be staying home, doing things at home.

"I wanted to not have it be about me anymore."
