On the final day of the RSM Classic, Robert Streb became the championship thanks to the 14 feet birdie on the first of three times playing the 18th hole on Sunday.
The RSM Classic 2020 Championship is finally earned by the 33-year-old golfer Robert Streb for the second time after a dramatic playoff. In 2014, he once became the champion despite 5 shots fewer than the lead.
At the Seaside par-70 on Sea Island Georgia, Streb stroke 68 shots and finished with -19 scores. The former Champion of this tournament – Kevin Kisner (2015) was the only one that Streb had to concern about.
On the first hole on par-4 18 holes course, Kisner stood more chance to be the champion than Streb when he shot a birdie successfully with the length of 15 foot.Contrastingly, Streb’s tee shot failed into the bunker when the first shot was 8 feet from the hole which meant that he had to shoot an even par. Fortunately, he had a perfect putt and came back to the tee box for the second round.
In the next round if the competition, Streb became the dominant player. With a length of 158 yards, he shot with the pitching wedge to the left edge of the hole, which facilitated a birdie. On the other hand, Kisner’s shot falls onto the rough on the right side of the fairway and he had to chip in to save the day. However, he didn’t complete and missed the championship. This was a regretful ending when he scored 63(-7) with 7 birdies.
After the RSM Classic 2020, Streb still has 2 years playing on PGA Tour and gets the ticket leading to Masters in April of the next year in addition to the award of $1,188 million.
Besides the runner-up Knisner, the third place belongs to Cameron Tringale (-18), Bernd Wiesberger and Andrew Landry share the fourth place (-17).
