Duke golf: Kevin Streelman makes cut at PGA Championship

Former Duke golf standout Kevin Streelman made the cut at the PGA Championship following his even-par second round.

Kevin Streelman made the cut at the PGA Championship, the first major of the golf season, following a rocky second round at TPC Harding Park in San Francisco, California.

After posting a one-under, 69, on Thursday in the first round, Streelman shot an even-par, 70, in round two on Friday morning.

The round got off to a perfect start with a birdie for the former Blue Devil at the Par-4, first hole, which was then followed by two straight pars before another birdie at the Par-5, 4th hole.

However, the round then took a turn for the worse as Streelman went bogey-bogey on holes No. 5 and No. 6 before getting back into the red numbers with a birdie at the Par-4, 7th hole.

A bride of four straight pars that spanned the end of the front nine and start of the back nine kept Streelman under par for the round and the tournament before another round of back-to-back bogeys came at No. 12 and No. 13.

Pars on No. 14, No. 15, and No. 16 left Kevin Streelman with two holes to try and save his round, and he did exactly that with a birdie at No. 17 with a two on the Par-3.

A par on No. 18 sent the Dukie into the clubhouse with an even-par, 70, and kept him at one-under for the tournament and well above the one-over cut line.

Including Streelman, 13 players are at one-under par for the tournament as all are T-31.

Haotong Li leads the PGA Championship at eight-under par after two rounds.

Kevin Streelman will be back on the course at 3:10pm EST alongside one of the youngest and brightest stars in the game, Viktor Hovland.
