Kevin Streelman summed it up best. "It was just one of those days where I felt like I couldn't miss," the 35-year-old professional golfer said Sunday after making seven straight birdies to win the Travelers Championship, setting a PGA Tour record in the process. It was Streelman's second career victory. He bested Mike Souchak's mark of six straight birdies by a winner, set during the 1956 St. Paul Open, to fire a second consecutive round of 64 that beat K.J. Choi and Sergio Garcia by one stroke. Not a bad day for the guy who gave away two Masters tickets to a random kid on Twitter earlier this year. And perhaps more impressive was the fact he had ten straight one-putts, including the entire back nine.

Just look at that scorecard.
