Streelman finally a PGA Tour winner

Kevin Streelman finally won on the PGA Tour with a game that looked as if he had done this many times before.

Streelman didn't make a bogey over the final 37 holes on the tough Copperhead course at Innisbrook. He didn't miss a shot over the last 11 holes Sunday on his way to a 4-under 67. That gave him a two-shot win over Boo Weekley in the Tampa Bay Championship.

Streelman won in his 153rd start on the PGA Tour. The win puts him into the Masters for the second time in his career.

Weekley closed with a tournament-best 63 some three hours before Streelman finished.

Jordan Spieth, the 19-year-old from Texas, tied for seventh and earned special temporary membership on the PGA Tour for the rest of the year.
