With an eighth-place finish at the Sanderson Farms Championship in Jackson, Miss., Sunday, Edmond’s Robert Streb moved up a spot and took over the lead in FedEx Cup point standings through four events on the 2015 PGA Tour.
Streb has accumulated 650 points through those four events, to rank ahead Sang-Moon Bae, who has 605 through three events. Complete standings can be viewed here.
Streb, whose high school teams at Edmond North began that school’s now decade long domination of Oklahoma scholastic golf and who won the Oklahoma Open twice in three years after graduating from Kansas State while beginning his professional career, won his first PGA Tour event Oct. 26 in a playoff at The McGladrey Classic. Streb has pocketed $1.302,733 for his first four events in the wrap-around fall portion of the 2015 season.
A hot start to the fall season is the same formula used by another native Oklahoman, Jimmy Walker, last year as Walker won twice in the fall, leading to a year in which he rose to 18th in the World Golf Rankings and became one of the bright spots on the U.S. Ryder Cup team.
