Streb Victorious at Sea Island PGA Event

Robert Streb picked up another win on the PGA tour with victory at the RSM Classic in Georgia.

After Streb and Kevin Kisner went to a second play-off hole, the American played one of the shots of his career with a hard wedge from the rough which almost earned him an eagle. The shot fell just short, but the tap in birdie was enough to give Streb the victory – his second win at the event after he first picked up the title back in 2014, which also went down to the wire with a nail-biting play-off.

Streb headed into the final day with a three-shot lead, but excellent conditions provided the ideal platform as the chasing pack began to pick off his advantage. Bernd Wiesberger pulled within two when he completed the first nine with a five under par, while Cameron Tringale went one better after he carded a brilliant 62 on the final round.

After Streb scored a couple of crucial birdies to stay in the lead at the turn, Kisner began to mount a serious challenge by putting birdie after birdie to position himself within a couple of shots of the leader for the first time in the match.

With the pressure mounting, Streb dropped his first shot of the tournament when he bogeyed the 13th hole after missing a six-foot put, and the tide seemed to be turning as the American took three puts for par on the 15th.    

Kisner then parred on the last to post a 63 and snatch the clubhouse lead, but Streb picked it up again on the 17th with a superb iron to 12-feet put, followed by a tricky downhill put on the last which he managed for birdie, taking the match to a play-off which he then went on to win.
