Former Edmond North Golfer Wins First PGA Tour Event
Robert Streb, a former golfer at Edmond North High School, won his first PGA Tour event on Sunday, winning the McGladrey Classic in Sea Island, Georgia.
Streb fired a final round 63 to get into a three-way playoff with Brendon de Jonge and Will MacKenzie at 14-under par.
On the second playoff hole, Streb stuck his approach within a few feet of the hole and knocked in the birdie putt to win the tournament.
Streb made a charge on the back nine just to get into the playoff, with birdies on #14, #15, #16, and #17.
Streb’s first PGA win earns him a spot in next year’s Masters, the Players Championship, and the season opening Mercedes Championship, which features only tournament winners from the previous season.
Streb is 27 years old and played his college golf at Kansas State.
He was on Edmond North teams which began a still current streak of 10 straight boys golf state titles.
