Duke golf: Kevin Streelman cannot sustain momentum from Round One

Former Duke golf standout Kevin Streelman was not able to ride the momentum of his First Round into Round Two at The Northern Trust.

Kevin Streelman went to bed on Thursday night tied for the lead at The Northern Trust following a seven-under First Round, and as he went to bed on Friday night, he no longer had a share of the lead.

One of the first golfers on the links at TPC Boston on Friday, Streelman was unable to sustain any momentum, and after his even-par round, he remains at seven-under for the tournament.

However, the former Blue Devil did have a front-row seat for the 12-under, 59, that his groupmate Scottie Scheffler posted.

Despite dropping only the 12th sub-60 round in PGA Tour history, Scheffler is still not in the lead, nor does he have a share of it thanks to an 11-under, 60, from Dustin Johnson.

Johnson needed one birdie in the last seven holes to also card a 59 or lower but was unable to do so.

Johnson leads the tournament at 15-under while Scheffler is at 13-under.

Anyway, back to Streelman, he got off to a decent start with a par at No. 1 and birdie at No. 2, followed by a par at No. 3 and another birdie at No. 4, but then it was all pars until No. 12 for the Dukie, which was where he posted his first bogey.

Back-to-back pars helped steady the round for Kevin Streelman, but he bogeyed the Par-4 15th hole to send him back to even par for the round.

A birdie at No. 16 tried to turn the tide into a strong close to the Second Round, but a bogey at No. 17 and par at No. 18 sent him to the clubhouse at an even-par, 71.

Streelman currently sits at T-20 alongside eight other players.
