Duke golf: Kevin Streelman posts worst score of second round at BMW

Former Duke golf standout Kevin Streelman posted the worst score of the entire second round at the BMW Championship.

Kevin Streelman is certainly lucky that there is no cut at this week’s BMW Championship because if this was not the second round of the Fed-Ex Cup Playoffs, the former Blue Devil would certainly be going home early.

Streelman had the worst score of the entire field in the second round on Friday afternoon with a 10-over-par 80.

Coming off a six-over round on Thursday, Streelman is now only beating one person in the tournament, Marc Leishman, who is sitting at 18-over, compared to Streelman’s 16-over.

Leishman was two shots better than Streelman on Friday, and Talor Gooch only beat the former Blue Devil by one shot in the Second Round.

Entering Olympia Fields North Course this week, Streelman was ranked at No. 28 in the Fed-Ex Cup Standings as only the Top-30 players advance to next week’s Tour Championship.

Kevin Streelman was able to record two birdies on the afternoon at No. 13 and No. 14, but bogeys at No. 3, No. 8, No. 10, No. 16, and No. 17 coupled with double-bogeys at No. 2 and No. 11 sank the 41-year old. But the worst hole came at No. 18, which resulted in a triple-bogey.

Paired in the same group as former Blue Devil Adam Long, Long didn’t fare much better than Streelman with a seven-over round on Friday to push his score to nine-over for the tournament.

Long was ranked at No. 27 in the Fed-Ex Cup Standings prior to the BMW Championship.
