Professional careerEdit

Streb played on the NGA Pro Golf Tour in 2010 and 2011[3] and the Web.com Tour in 2012. He won his first title on the Web.com Tour at the Mylan Classic in September,[4] and finished T-3 at the BMW Charity Pro-Am and T-4 at the South Georgia Classic. He finished 7th on the 2012 money list to earn his PGA Tour card for 2013.

In his first PGA Tour season, Streb's best results were T-16 at the Humana Challenge, T-18 at the Honda Classic and T-22 at the Shell Houston Open. He finished 126th in the FedEx Cup standings, one spot short of the playoffs and fully exempt status for 2014. The next season, he was runner-up at the Zurich Classic of New Orleans and T-9 at the Deutsche Bank Championship. He finished 71st in the 2014 FedEx Cup.

In the 2015 PGA Tour season, Streb earned his first PGA Tour win at the 2014 McGladrey Classic at the Sea Island Golf Club on St. Simons Island, Georgia.[5] He had six other top-10 finishes including a playoff loss at the Greenbrier Classic and an 18th place finish on the 2015 FedEx Cup Standings.

At the 2016 PGA Championship at Baltusrol Golf Club, Streb fired a second round 63 to tie the best round in a major and joined Jimmy Walker as the 36-hole leader in the event, with a 9 under par total. Streb carded a two-over-par 72 during the third round, that pushed him back into a tie for fifth entering the final round. He finished the tournament tied for seventh.
