DURHAM, N.C. -- Former Duke standout Kevin Streelman shot a four-under 67 in the final round to top Boo Weekley and claim the 2013 Tampa Bay Championship presented by EverBank. Streelman played bogey-free golf for the second straight round at Innisbrook Resort (Copperhead Course) to secure a two-shot victory with a 10-under 274.

Streelman grabbed the tournament lead from Weekley with a birdie on the par-3 13th hole and added another birdie at No. 17 to provide the final margin.

“That was really cool,” said Streelman, a sixth-year PGA TOUR veteran who won in his 153d start. “I just stayed really patient and had a peace about me today. … It’s such a tough golf course where you’ve got to pick your battles.”

Cameron Tringale also came from well off the pace to grab third, one shot behind Weekley after a 66. Justin Leonard (71), Greg Chalmers (70) and defending champion Luke Donald (69) were another stroke back.

Among those three shots back was 19-year-old Jordan Spieth, whose closing 70 was enough to earn PGA TOUR status as a special temporary member.

With his victory at the Tampa Bay Championship presented by EverBank, Kevin Streelman …

-- Earns his first career PGA TOUR victory at the age of 34 years, 4 months and 13 days in his 153rd career start on TOUR.
