Kevin Streelman descends upon Norton, Massachusetts, for his seventh playing of the Deutsche Bank Championship and enters the week 65th in the FedExCup standings.
Streelman has yet to post a top 25 at the DB Championship in six trips, but came closest last year with a T26, which included a 6-under 65 in the third round. His career scoring average at the par-71 TPC Boston is 70.09 in 22 rounds. Not sufficient where the average winning score is in the neighborhood of 19-under. The 36-year-old has qualified for the Playoffs in every season since the FEC was launched in 2007, advancing to the TOUR Championship twice (2013, 2010). Streelman ended 2014 No. 52 in the Official World Golf Ranking but enters the second leg of the Playoffs at 101st. He's made a respectable 19 cuts on 26 starts in 2014-15, but just two of his paydays went for top 10s, including a solo second at the Shriners Hospitals for Children Open back in October. In the calendar year, his best is T9 at the Wells Fargo Championship in mid-May. Sep 3 - 2:26 PM

After a four-year hiatus from the tournament, Kevin Streelman returns to the Barracuda Championship for his third visit to Montrêux Golf and Country Club.

Streelman has a connection to Nevada, having met his wife a little over 10 years ago in Las Vegas. The Silver State has paid dividends this past fall, where he finished T2 at the Shriners Hospitals for Children Open, a season best on 23 starts. He's posted one other top 10 in 2014-15, that a T9 at the Wells Fargo Championship. In total, he's cashed 16 times, with five top-25 finishes, good for 59th in the FedExCup standings. This is his first visit to Montrêaux since posting a T31 in 2010; he also finished T33 in 2008. He began the year No. 52 in the Official World Golf Ranking and slots in this week at No. 92. He's missed three of his last four cuts with his lone cash a 77th-place finish at The Greenbrier Classic. The 36-year-old ranks 107th on TOUR in birdie average (3.57) and 106th in eagles (holes per).

Kevin Streelman has joined the field of 156 at next week's Open Championship.

He was first alternate when Chris Kirk pulled out due to a broken hand. Streelman missed the cut at the John Deere Classic. He's 2-for-3 at The Open but last year's T54 at Royal Liverpool is the better of his paydays in the season's third major. Hiroshi Iwata of Japan is now first alternate.

Kevin Streelman settled for an even-par 36-34=70 in today's second round of the Travelers Championship to post 1-under 139, missing the cut by one stroke.

The defending champ stood over 14 opportunities to break par today. He converted thrice but squared as many bogeys, including a three-jack from inside 32 feet at the par-4 10th hole. Other notables who failed to make the cut include: 139--two-time champ Stewart Cink; Patrick Reed; Jason Bohn; Justin Thomas ... 140--Matt Jones; Matt Every ... 141--2007 champ Hunter Mahan; Kevin Na; Padraig Harrington ... 142--Brendon de Jonge; Louis Oosthuizen; Jerry Kelly; Peter Uihlein ... 143--Sangmoon Bae ... 144-Daniel Summerhays; Tim Clark; Branden Grace ... 146--Alex Cejka; Sean O'Hair; Nick Taylor.

Kevin Streelman opened his title defense of the Travelers Championship in 1-under-par 36-33=69.

If that score looks familiar, it's because he carded the same en route to his one-stroke victory a year ago. That's the easy part as no one can expect to walk off with seven consecutive birdies to claim another title. Today's round featured five birdies, but his only notable conversion fell for par from 19'1" at the par-3 16th hole. Streelman also squared two bogeys and a double before signing his card sitting seven shots off Bubba Watson's overnight lead.
Jun 25 - 6:47 PM

Kevin Streelman closed with a birdie barrage of seven straight to steal the 2014 Travelers Championship title, and returns for a chance to defend this week.

Streelman was an afterthought entering the final round before getting the rally started. He owns an additional two top 10s here at TPC River Highlands in seven starts, so it wasn't simply a fluke incident. The Duke Blue Devil arrived with four straight missed cuts prior to winning last year but his form is much better entering this week as he's collected top 20s in two of his last three. Gamers should consider him a serious threat this week, but also remember how difficult it can be playing as the defending champion of an event.

Kevin Streelman enjoyed a 7-under-par 31-34=65 in today's third round of the Memorial to post 10-under 206, good for the early clubhouse lead.

Streelman's 65 ties low round of the day (shared with two other players thus far), but he takes the top spot on the live leaderboard, up 39 places on moving day. The 36-year-old piped 13 (of 14 fairways) and landed 14 greens in regulation en route to his eight birdie, one bogey romp around Muirfield Village. To say that Streelman was dialed-in may be an understatement as his last four par breakers (and five of his last six) all came from inside of five feet. A slightly unfamiliar location on the Memorial leaderboard will await Streels on Sunday, as he's missed the cut in each of his prior three loops in Dublin, Ohio. He did however, post a T7-finish in 2011, his only top 30 in six previous editions.
Jun 6 - 2:19 PM

Kevin Streelman finished off his sixth Wells Fargo Championship with a 4-under-par 32-36=68 to post 10-under 278.

Streelman was coming off a T55 and missed cut in his last two starts but Quail Hollow came along just at the right time as he's finished T6 and T14 in the last two editions of the WFC. On the day, the 36-year-old found seven (of 14) fairways and 12 greens in regulation, accumulating 27 putts on his round. The Duke University grad circled three birdies and one eagle, his set including a 24'9" drop for birdie-3 at No. 8. His lone square came on the par-4 18th, where after finding the fairway bunker off the tee, he could only advance his next to 93 yards out in the right rough. Streelman was 5-for-5 in scrambling up to that point.
May 17 - 4:12 PM

Kevin Streelman carded a 3-under-par 35-34=69 in today's opening round of the Wells Fargo Championship, finishing two strokes off the clubhouse lead.

With only one top 25 in his last 14 full-field starts on the PGA TOUR (T12, Masters), Streelman hasn't necessarily been moving the fantasy needle, but he's placed inside the top 15 in the last two editions of this tournament. In that context, today's success isn't surprising. He went 5-for-12 in scoring opportunities with five birdies. Three of them ran at least 15 feet, the longest measuring 19-and-a-half feet at the par-4 ninth. Streelman also swallowed two bogeys, including a three-putt 5 from 25 feet at the eighth hole.
May 14 - 12:58 PM

Kevin Streelman will tackle Quail Hollow Club for a sixth time at this week's Wells Fargo Championship.

Quail Hollow might be just what the doctor ordered for the Duke University grad where after missing consecutive cuts in 2007-09, he returned in 2013 to post T6 and followed with T14 last year. Streelman has cashed in 12 of 16 starts on his season but just three have gone for top 25s and worse yet, just one for a top 10. That top 10 however, came in the form of a solo second at the Shriners Hospitals for Children Open and he's been riding the associated 300 FedExCup points for the majority of the season. The 36-year-old briefly came to life with a T12-showing at the Masters but flat-lined again with a T55 at the RBC Heritage and a missed cut at last week's PLAYERS.
May 13 - 1:29 PM

Kevin Streelman hung up a 6-under-par 31-34=65 in today's second round of the RBC Heritage to post 6-under 137 at the midpoint, six shots back of the 36-hole lead.

With a T12 at last week's Masters and top 20s at Harbour Town in 2012 and 2013, Streelman entered as a mild source of converging trends. He traded a birdie with a bogey on Thursday, but drilled home seven birdies in today's loop. After opening the day with a bogey-5 at the 10th hole, he jarred his bunker shot for birdie from 15 yards at the par-4 11th. His longest conventional conversions rolled 36'3" and 39'7" at Nos. 18 and 3, respectively. At last check, both of Streelman's strokes-gained splits sat well north of 2.000. He was the 11th and figures to be the last to conclude the second round inside the top 10 on the leaderboard.
Apr 17 - 5:32 PM

Kevin Streelman settled for an even-par 36-36=72 in today's final round of the Masters.

After lacing his irons for three days, he landed only 10 greens in regulation today, so he's somewhat fortunate not to sign for a score over par. Streelman circled birdies at the par-5 second and par-4 17th, and then signed his card sitting T12 at 6-under 282, so it'll be his best result in the Masters by far. His best finish in any major is T12 at the 2013 PGA Championship.
Apr 12 - 6:29 PM

Kevin Streelman added a 2-under-par 33-37=70 in today's third round of the Masters to post 6-under 210, good for a piece of the 54-hole clubhouse lead.

The Par 3 Contest champ has been lights out with his irons in the tournament proper. After totaling 27 greens in regulation during the first two rounds, he hit another 14 today, yielding four birdies to offset a pair of bogeys. He's squared only four bogeys all week en route to a trio of 70s. While he's playing like a man determined to become the first to connect wins in the Par 3 and the main event, and while he signed his card sitting T6 on the leaderboard, Streelman was 11 strokes off the lead of Jordan Spieth, who has three holes to complete in the third round. This is to say that it's probably not going to be within his power to make history.
Apr 11 - 6:27 PM

Kevin Streelman answered his opening 70 at the Masters with another in today's second round.

For the second consecutive day, Streelman carded 35 on both nines with three birdies and one bogey. After hitting 14 greens in regulation on Thursday, he landed 13 today. Streelman nearly jarred his third into the par-5 15th, but settled for a tap-in birdie. If Jordan Spieth wasn't 10 shots lower, one of the conversations entering the weekend would focus on Streelman gunning to become the first Par 3 Contest winner to take the title in the tournament proper. There's still quite a bit of golf to be played, so you can't rule it out, but it's unlikely to gain any attention unless the stars begin to align on Saturday.
Apr 10 - 5:03 PM

Kevin Streelman submitted a 2-under-par 34-36=70 for his opening round of the Masters, finishing three strokes adrift of the clubhouse co-leaders.

Streelman won the Par 3 Contest on Wednesday, defeating Camilo Villegas on the third hole in a playoff. The American carried that form to the big course today. He hit 14 greens in regulation and poured in three birdies, including a 3 at the always-challenging 10th hole. His only blemish occurred at the par-4 17th where he dropped a shot. Of course, Streelman is hoping to become the first to take the title in both competitions in the same week. Should he convert on that achievement, he'd also be collecting his his victory in a major. For now, he settles for what is his lowest round of nine in four appearances at Augusta National.
