Steve Stricker named Ryder assistant
Watson made the announcement Wednesday on the eve of the PGA Championship.
Stricker has been a stalwart in team competitions, playing three times in the Ryder Cup and five times at the Presidents Cup. He quickly accepted Watson's offer as the U.S. tries to reclaim the Ryder Cup from Europe on Sept. 26-28 at Gleneagles in Scotland.
