Streelman showcases elegantly simplistic ball marker design

At the Valspar Championship, Kevin Streelman and his competitors faced tougher weather conditions on Friday compared to Thursday. The Copperhead course at Innisbrook led to higher scores, with Streelman shooting a 1-over 72 in the second round after an opening score of 64. Despite this, Streelman was still leading the leaderboard at 6 under when he finished his round.

One significant change in Streelman’s game from the first day to the second was on the greens. He went from being eighth in the field in strokes gained: putting to 72nd. Streelman explained that his ball marker isn’t a miracle worker but is a simplistically innovative and effective tool that helps him align his putts with confidence. He received USGA approval to use the marker and cut it down to an inch in length to comply with the rules.

Streelman remains optimistic about his performance despite the challenges on the greens in the second round. He sees the tournament as a strategic chess game, taking each hole as it comes. He expressed pride in his short game and iron play and is focused on staying in a good position as the competition intensifies. The video at the top of the page shows Streelman demonstrating his unique ball marker to Golf Channel’s Kira K. Dixon.
