PGA Championship 2018: Kevin Streelman celebrates getting a last-minute spot into the PGA … by trolling Phil Mickelson?

The world is moving too quickly to figure out exactly where in the zeitgeist of life GIFs of Phil Mickelson’s extraordinary indulgent viral Mizzen + Main circus act dancing ads currently reside. In the interest of time, we’ll just acknowledge they’re a thing. And being a thing, they have been exploited to the point of excessively excessive excess.

However, let’s give credit to Kevin Streelman for finding a new, creative use for one of these GIFs, while also breaking news.

The original domino that caused this chain of unusual events was that Thomas Bjorn pulled out of the PGA Championship on Wednesday due to a bad back. Which opened up a spot for Streelman, who has been around this week waiting for just such an occasion. Which caused him to become a social-media producer.

Which leads us to wonder: Has he been sitting on this Tweet, just waiting to unleash it to the world?

Clearly, Streelman is happy he’ll be playing at Bellerive. Unclear is whether he was secretly trolling Mickelson with this post at the very same time. We’ll ask him next time we see him on the property. But in our heart of hearts we’re pretty sure we already know.

Meanwhile, congrats to Kelly Kraft on moving up to first alternate. But couldn’t you have come up with something more creative that this?
