DORAL, Fla. – Kevin Streelman is trying to become the sixth player to win his first PGA TOUR event at a World Golf Championships event.

The former Duke standout started on the back nine at TPC Blue Monster and just birdied the 18th hole to turn in 34. Coupled with his opening 68, Streelman is now 6 under and tied for second with Martin Kaymer and Rory McIlroy, three strokes behind Hunter Mahan.

Streelman had never played in a World Golf Championships prior to this week.

Four of the first-timers picked up their first TOUR wins at the Accenture Match Play Championship – Darren Clarke (2000), Kevin Sutherland (2002) , Henrik Stenson (2007) and Ian Poulter (2010). Craig Parry’s win at the Bridgestone Invitational in 2002 was also his first on TOUR.

A win at the HSBC Champions counts as an official PGA TOUR win only if the player is a member. Francesco Molinari was not a TOUR member when he won last year. – Helen Ross
