Kevin Streelman had a nice weekend at Muirfield, finishing in a seventh place tie at the Workday Charity Open. As enjoyable as the tournament was, it wasn't the Memorial. Streelman, who finished fourth at the Memorial a year ago, made a special trip out to Muirfield Monday, with one specific goal in mind.
"I'm looking forward to getting my 1st milkshake," Streelman said on the Joel Riley show on 610 WTVN Monday. "They wouldn't do milkshakes last week...they said 'only Memorial week.'"
The famous Memorial Tournament milkshakes are just one of the reasons tour pros love coming to the tournament hosted by Jack Nicklaus. The 45th Memorial, delayed by the COVID-19 pandemic, tees off Thursday. Streelman is again in a loaded field which includes the top five players, and 19 of the top 20 in the world. Steelman talked on WTVN about the Muirfield Village course, golfing legend Jack Nicklaus, his weekend at the Workday Charity Open, playing tournament golf without fans and much more. It was an outstanding interview with one of the classiest guys on tour. If you missed it, you can check it out by clicking here to go to Joel's podcast page.
