During the final day of the President’s Cup, a woman went streaking while Steve Stricker and Ernie Els were playing their match. Apparently the streaker may have been a tribute for Steve Stricker, according to a report from Stephanie Wei:
“She was after Steve,” said [Ernie Els], after beating Stricker 1 up, smiling. “We both looked the other way.” … Stricker, with his wife Nicki standing next to him said, “She was yelling, ‘Streaking for Stricker.’” Understandably, Mrs. Stricker shook her head, though she seemed slightly amused, as well.
It also appears that the woman was not only not identified, but she evaded capture by the police.
The streaker, a woman, was not immediately identified. Fans on the grounds said the woman ran all the way up the 18th fairway a little after 2 p.m. ET, evading police trying to catch her. She may well have completely escaped legal troubles.
Streaking is definitely rare at a golf tournament and I don’t imagine one will be seen again for a while. The US went on to win the President’s Cup over the International team 18 1/2 to 15 1/2.
