Former Duke golf star Kevin Streelman gets cut in first two events back

Former Duke golf star Kevin Streelman was cut from back-to-back events since the return of the PGA Tour from the coronavirus pandemic.

All athletes have to knock off the rust when their respective sports return, and that is what former Duke golf star Kevin Streelman has been doing the last two weeks.

Streelman has been cut after the first two rounds of the two events the PGA Tour has held since its return from its break following the coronavirus pandemic.

The first event, the Charles Schwab Challenge, held at Colonial Country Club in Fort Worth, Texas, was from June 11-14, and Streelman posted an Opening Round one-under, 69, followed by a Second Round one-over, 71.

Both scores combined for even par, and the 39-year-old did not qualify for the cut of two-under as the winner, Daniel Berger, took home the tournament in a playoff hole and a scored a total 15-under for the week.

The PGA Tour then shifted to Hilton Head, South Carolina for the RBC Heritage Classic at Harbour Town Golf Links.

Streelman was once again in the field, and while his rounds were better, he just didn’t go low enough to make the cut once again.

The former Blue Devil struggled in Round One, finishing his first 18 holes with a two-over, 73, but then picked things up with a four-under, 67, in Round Two.

However, it was still not good enough to make the cut with a total score of two-under as the cut line was at four-under par.

Kevin Streelman and the rest of the PGA Tour will head up to TPC River Highlands in Cromwell, Connecticut for the Travelers Championship following the final round of the RBC Heritage.
