Duke golf: Kevin Streelman falters on weekend at The Northern Trust

Former Duke golf standout Kevin Streelman faltered throughout the weekend at The Northern Trust, but there is still time to reach the ultimate goal.

A lead after 18 holes at The Northern Trust at TPC Boston was the highlight of the week for former Blue Devil Kevin Streelman as he could not dominate the golf course any more than he did on Thursday.

Friday was an even-par round for Streelman, which was then followed by a two-over on Saturday and back to an even-par round on Sunday following his even-under in Round One.

All in all, it was a five-under weekend for Streelman. But following his round on Friday, there was little chance for him to get back into contention as Dustin Johnson charged away from the rest of the field, winning the event with a 30-under-par score.

Johnson was 11 shots better than the second-place finisher, Harris English, at an outstanding 19-under.

Kevin Streelman finished T-61 in Norton, Massachusetts with Maverick McNealy and Keith Mitchell as all three players will take home $21,000 for their placing.

While it was not the final three rounds that Kevin Streelman would have liked, he still has a chance to play golf in the next couple of weeks, but that starts with a great tournament at the BMW Championship.

Streelman, ranked No. 28 in the Fed-Ex Cup Standings, moves on to the second event of the Fed-Ex Cup Playoffs but needs to remain inside the Top-30 if he wants to play in the Tour Championship the following week at East Lake Golf Club.

Only the Top-70 players are advancing to this week’s upcoming tournament at Olympia Fields Country Club in Olympia Fields, Illinois.

Kevin Streelman dropped from No. 22 in the standings to No. 28 after his disappointing finish in Boston, so there is very little room for error for the former Blue Devil.
