– Former Kansas State men’s golfer Robert Streb turned in a career-best performance on the PGA Tour this past weekend as he tied for second at the Zurich Classic of New Orleans at TPC Louisiana in Avondale, La.

Streb, who lettered at K-State from 2006-2009 and still holds the school record for best single-season stroke average, finished the Zurich Classic at 17-under par 271, just two strokes behind Seung-Yul Noh’s winning score of 269. Streb carded sub-70 scores during the first three rounds (67, 66, 68) before a final-round score of 2-under par 70.

A native of Edmond, Okla., Streb bettered his career high finish of an 11th-place tie at this year’s Puerto Rico Open. His second-round score of 66 tied a season low he originally set during the second round of the Puerto Rico Open, while his 72-hole score of 271 tied for the second best of his career. His play at the Zurich Classic also lowered his stroke average to 70.26, which ranks 25th on the PGA Tour.

Streb’s performance this past weekend netted him $598,400 to give him a 2014 total of $808,606. He improved his FedEx Cup ranking from 142nd to 73rd by gaining a career-best 245 FedEx Cup points during the Zurich Classic.

Streb will be back in action this weekend, May 1-4, at the Wells Fargo Championship held at Quail Hollow Club in Charlotte, N.C.
