Winner's Bag: What Robert Streb used to win the McGladrey Classic

When Robert Streb got to the 179-yard, par-3 17th hole he grabbed his 8-iron and staked his tee shot to 4 feet, 3 inches and made the ensuing putt to capture his first PGA Tour win at the McGladrey Classic.


Streb also had a couple of equipment quirks. Streb was one of the few players to use a conventional 2-iron at Sea Island (many had utility irons, but only three players had a regular 2-iron in play). He also had Titleist's tour rep for Vokey wedges, Aaron Dill, make him a Vokey SM5 wedge with "Do you have any normal size clothes or do you only shop at Baby Gap" stamped on it. The quote is from the 2007 film "Superbad."
