ROCHESTER, N.Y. (WHEC) -- Just one day removed from the start of the Senior PGA Championship and there's one golfer who's getting a lot of questions about a completely different tournament.

Steve Stricker is the Ryder Cup captain for the United States team in 2020. Next year, he'll be in charge of overseeing an American squad that is looking for revenge from a loss three years ago, but all the while he's still playing competitive golf and described the method he takes to balance his career and his duties with the Ryder Cup.

"I'm constantly looking at how guys are playing. It's really no different for me, still some focus about what I want to do come 2020 in September. There are all these little things that go through my mind. I'm constantly thinking about that but I've been so far able to get inside the ropes and concentrate on my golf game and put that stuff behind me for the four to five hours that I'm out there," said Steve Stricker, 2020 U.S. Ryder Cup Captain. 

Stricker has been a busy man. Last week, he was at the PGA Championship in Long Island and two weeks ago he competed in another major on the champions tour.
