Kevin Streelman

Growing up caddying across the Chicago area, Streelman realized early what it meant to work hard. His success in high school and early college guided him to captain the men’s golf team at Duke University, where he was encouraged by Alumnus Joe Ogilve to give professional golf a try.

Streelman's Wilson Favourites:

WILSON FG TOUR F5 IRONS

the Wilson Staff FG Tour F5 irons are perfectly forged for soft feel while incorporating distance-enhancing technology in the long and mid irons for enhanced playability. More Details

Congratulations to Kevin Streelman's 2014 victory at the Travelers Championship!

Growing up caddying across the Chicago area, Streelman realized early what it meant to work hard. His success in high school and early college guided him to captain the men’s golf team at Duke University, where he was encouraged by Alumnus Joe Ogilve to give professional golf a try. After spending years seeking a breakthrough on the Dakotas Tour, he received his tour card in 2007.

He claimed his first PGA Tour title at the Tampa Bay Championship in March 2013 where on the thirteenth hole of the final round, his FG Tour V2 5-iron guided him to the best shot of his life. In proceeding events, Streelman captured four other top-six finishes and had a strong showing in the FedEx Cup playoffs. After missing the cut at his first Masters in 2011, Streelman hung the framed invitation in his basement with an empty frame beside it as motivation to return, which he did in 2013.

His parents got the honor of caddying for him during the Par 3 tournaments both years. At the 2014 Masters, his parents were feeling too under the weather to attend the Par 3 Contest, so Streels offered their two tickets up to a junior golfer on Twitter. The lucky winner? A 17-year old from Savannah who elected to bring his mom. Kevin is a proud father. After winning the Traveler's Championship, he was asked what he would be doing that night, and a smile came to his face upon replying: "my daughter Sophie and I will take our bath at 7:15 and then bedtime is at 8." Streelman favors Christian rock music and is a skilled guitarist. He resides in Scottsdale, Arizona, with his wife Courtney and his dog. His biggest tip for golfers everywhere? Stick to your fundamentals.
