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.

What a fantastic finish by Streels!
7 Birdies to close. He was on fire.
I was there yesterday and followed Streels the final 4 holes. He didn't miss a shot and to tp things off he pipes his longest drive of the tournament on the final hole leading to the winning birdie. Awesome performance.
A great win and one that I will remember for a long time. 7 Straight birds to finish out. What an accomplishment.
Congratulations to Kevin and a good win. A sporty combination, FJ Sports and SciFlex gloves. FJ the mark of a player and a winner.
That is as fabulous as nothing I've ever heard! Congratulations Mr. Kevin Streelman. That was a well deserved win!
Amazing back nine! Congrats, Kevin.
What a great finish. Not too often you see someone birdie their way home.
