Travelers Championship Recap

As I settled into my couch Sunday afternoon I had a feeling I was in for some great Sunday golf action with the final round of the Travelers Championship.  My fantasy pick, Ryan Moore, was beginning the day with a 1 stroke lead over Baddeley and after a top 10 finish with Adam Scott in the US Open, I thought this was my chance to sneak back into contention.  No sooner could I crack a cold one, Moore had bogeyed the first hole.  As Moore continued to have an up and down front 9, Kevin Streelman was starting the back 9 and was in for the round of his life. On the way to a back nine 28 and a 64 overall, Streelman birdied the last 7 holes and man an astonishing 10 one-putts in a row to seal the victory over Choi and Garcia by a single stroke.  Both Choi and Sergio fought hard and Choi made an amazing shot off the cart path to keep it close and they each even had a birdie putt, albeit very difficult putts, to try and force a playoff.  In the end Streelman held them off, congratulations to Kevin Streelman for putting himself in a position to make a run and capitalizing on the opportunity.  Kevin Streelman the 2014 Travelers Championship winner.
