Steve Stricker has admitted he is content with his decision to reduce his playing schedule in 2013.

Stricker will make his eighth appearance of the season this week when he tees-off at the John Deere Classic in Illinois.

The 46-year-old will then remain in his homeland and will miss the Open Championship at Muirfield in order to celebrate his 20th wedding anniversary.

Stricker has won twelve times on the PGA Tour and in his seven starts this year he has earned more than two million dollars after two runner-up finishes to go alongside four top ten finishes.

He is currently 20th in the FedEx Cup standings but isn?t tempted to increase his schedule in the pursuit of further glory.

“I am enjoying the down-time at home where I don’t feel like I have to practise every minute. And that’s been fun. I am excited to be at each and every event that I tee it up in.

“I still work at my game at home, just not as much. There are times now when I am home for two or three weeks I can set the clubs down for a week or two and then pick them up the week prior to get ready to come to an event.

“This is my 20th year on tour and I want to make sure that I am fresh when I come out. I don’t want to get to the point where I dread coming out. I am too old for that.”
