Poor Kevin Streelman just keeps getting slighted
Kevin Streelman is a two-time PGA Tour winner, but he just can't seem to get the respect he deserves. On Wednesday, the latest slight against the 36-year-old Duke product came to light in the form of the big FedEx Cup points board located in the media center at this week's Deutsche Bank Championship.
Streelman enters this week in a precarious 65th place on the standings, with the top 70 at the tournament's conclusion advancing to the third event of the FedEx Cup playoffs. But as the AP's Doug Ferguson points out, another Kevin seems to have taken his spot:
Kevin Sutherland shot the Champion Tour's first-ever 59 last year and is having a nice 2015 with nearly $1 million in earnings, but none of those things translate to FedEx Cup points. We'll chalk that up an innocent brain fart by someone at the PGA Tour. Not a big deal. But it's the second time Streelman's name hasn't been properly placed this summer. Check out what happened when he returned to the Travelers as the event's defending champ:
And then there's what happened to the plaque at the Travelers that commemorates his PGA Tour record when he reeled off seven straight birdies to close out that victory. . .
Yeah, this has NOT been the Summer of Kevin.
