“That 8-iron worked out pretty perfect there on 17,” said Titleist Brand Ambassador Robert Streb moments after sitting down at his post-round press conference as he reflected on his dramatic playoff win at the McGladrey Classic.

This shot on the second hole of the three-man playoff put Robert in prime position to cap off an impressive final-round performance. After steadying his nerves, Robert converted the birdie putt and secured his first career PGA Tour victory.

Robert started the day five-strokes off the lead but went on to author a stellar round that included a total of 9 birdies (not including the playoff clinching 74th hole). This was the exclamation point to a week of steady play for Robert where he carded all four rounds in the 60s and posted a 14-under-par 266. 

The key to Robert’s early season success and confidence on the course…

“Just trying to improve, trying to get better, and obviously it paid off pretty big today.”

We’d agree.  Congratulations, Robert!

Let's take a closer look at the equipment Robert used to win this past weekend.

Titleist Brand Ambasador Robert Streb fired a final round 7-under-par 63 to earn a spot in a three-way all-Titleist golf ball playoff and claim victory over Titleist Brand Ambassador Brendon de Jonge and Titleist Pro V1x Loyalist Will MacKenzie at the McGladrey Classic. The 63 marked the lowest round of Streb's young career and capped off an impressive 14-under-par 266 victory total.

Robert credits his impressive play to a renewed focus on all aspects of his game. Robert ranked in the Top 15 in Driving Distance (6), Strokes Gained Tee to Green (13) and Strokes Gained Putting (2).

"I'm just trying to improve. Trying to get wedges closer, putt better, drive it better. Just kind of try to keep steadily improving in all aspects," said Streb.

The victory also punches Robert's ticket to next year's Masters, a major accomplishment for the man who listed playing Augusta National as the number one goal on his list.

"Very excited. You know, you spend so much time watching Augusta on TV as a kid and I'm just very thrilled, and just excited to see what it's like."

Congratulations on your great play, Robert!
