Kevin Streelman's career seemingly was going nowhere, belying the spinning odometers on the cars he burned through in pursuit of it. He ran up 150,000 miles on one of them, 170,000 on another. Only his inexplicable determination kept them running. The low point came in 2004, when a group of sponsors from Chicago deserted him, leaving him stranded in San Diego with pocket change. "It wasn't too long ago I'm in the car driving myself around dead broke," Streelman said Sunday afternoon. "It just shows determination and hard work. Keep chasing your dreams. You never know what will happen." What happened on the Copperhead Course at Innisbrook Resort outside Tampa is the incentive to which thousands like him will cling, similarly invested in their own elusive dreams. Streelman, 34, won the Tampa Bay Championship presented by EverBank, his first victory in his 153rd PGA Tour start. Streelman has spent his adult life putting the journey in journeyman. "My first car was my mom's Nissan Altima," Streelman once told writer Randy Youngman, then of the Orange County Register. "She gave it to me when it had probably 50,000 or 60,000 [miles] and I got it up to 200,000 and burned it out."
