Winning the $1 million Kodak Challenge (a year-long points competition for performance on certain holes) bonus in 2009 helped pay the bills, but Streelman didn't officially win on the PGA Tour until the 2013 Tampa Bay Championship. In his 153rd career start, at age 34, the victory at Innisbrook in March propelled him to a breakout season. Streelman would later pick up his first PGA Tour runner-up at the Players on his way to earning more than $3 million for the year.
