FARMINGDALE, N.Y. – The streak is over for Luke Donald.
For the first time since the 2010 FedExCup Playoffs, Donald suffered a post-season three putt.
The last time Donald had suffered a three-putt in the Playoffs was in the third round of the TOUR Championship by Coca-Cola when he three-putted the 15th hole at East Lake.
He then finished the rest of the tournament (21 holes) without a three-putt, went the entire 2011 FedExCup Playoffs (270 holes) without a three-putt, then went another 19 holes without a three-putt to start The Barclays.
Overall, Brian Gay entered this week with the longest active three-putt avoidance streak on the PGA TOUR at 233 holes. Gay did not suffer a three-putt in his first round at The Barclays to extend his streak to 251 holes and is playing his second round Friday afternoon.
