MADISON, Wis. (AP) Steve Stricker has had surgery on a bulging disk in his lower back to alleviate recurring issues in his hip area.
Mario Tiziani, Stricker's brother-in-law and agent, says the one-hour surgery Tuesday was successful and that Stricker will be away from golf for at least eight weeks.
The 12-time tour winner won't be missing much. Stricker already plays a reduced schedule, and he was not likely to play in 2015 until the Florida swing.
