  • Kevin Streelman Closes in Style at the Travelers Championship

    Add Comment

    Kevin Streelman began the day four strokes back of the 54-hole lead and his front nine one over par total left him even further behind than when he started.

    On the back nine Streelman put on a clinic, making seven straight birdies on the closing seven holes to streak to the top of the leaderboard and take a one stroke clubhouse lead.  With a few groups behind him, Streelman would have to wait for his playing competitors to finish their rounds to see if his 15-under par total would hold up.  No one could match, giving Streelman the victory.

    Streelman relied on FJ Sport and SciFlex en route to the victory.

    Streelman's seven straight birdies is now the PGA Tour record for consecutive closing birdies by a winner.

    This is Streelman's second PGA Tour win.

    Kevin Streelman (in FJ ICON and SciFlex) tamed the daunting Innisbrook Copperheard course to claim his first PGA Tour title in his 153rd PGA Tour start.  Entering the weekend at even par, Streelman played his next 36 holes at 10 under, not dropping a single shot over the stretch.  The ten under total was good enough to take home a two stroke victory.

    "I just stayed really patient and had a peace about me today...It’s such a tough golf course where you’ve got to pick your battles.” said Streelman of his controlled round.

    The win earns Streelman an invitation to this years' Masters Tournament.

    On the European Tour, Thomas Aiken won the Avantha Masters with a final round 67 to win by three strokes.  Aiken, in FJ ICON MyJoys, shot all four rounds in the 60's, including a blistering ten under par 62 on Saturday to race to the top of the leaderboard.  Aiken carded twenty-one birdies and two eagles versus only two bogeys over the 72 holes of tournament play.   

    “I’ve been playing very nicely the last four months, not making a lot of mistakes, but just not sinking enough putts,” said Aiken, continuing, “This week a few went in, I hit some better iron shots which gave me a better chance to sink some putts, and I played some phenomenal golf.”

    This is Aiken's second European Tour Victory; the win also moves Aiken into the top 100 on the official world golf rankings.
