Robert  Streb seals maiden PGA Tour win in playoff

Robert Streb held his nerve to win his first PGA Tour title in a playoff with fellow American Will MacKenzie and Zimbabwe`s Brendon de Jonge for the $5.6 million McGladrey Classic at Sea Island in Georgia on Sunday.

Streb sealed victory by sinking a four-foot birdie putt at the second extra hole, the par-three 17th, where de Jonge narrowly missed his birdie attempt from 18 feet. 

MacKenzie, seeking to end a six-year title drought on the PGA Tour, was eliminated at the first extra hole, the par-four 18th, where he bogeyed after failing to get up and down from a greenside bunker.

The trio had finished the 72 regulation holes on 14-under-par 266, de Jonge closing with a five-under 65 on the Seaside Course, MacKenzie carding a 68 and Streb firing a best-of-the-day 63.
