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!
