PGA Tour Winner: It’s Kevin Na at The Greenbrier

Kevin Na shot a 64 on Sunday at the Old White Course to capture the newly-named A Military Tribute at The Greenbrier.

Na finished his final day in West Virginia with a single bogey offset by seven birdies, highlighted by a six-pack of gains in a seven-hole stretch (Nos. 4-10), en route to a four-day score of 19-under par.

It was Na’s second PGA Tour title, but first since the 2011 Shriners Hospitals for Children Open. Afterwards, Na joked, “It took me eight years to win the first, and only seven to win the second.”

KEVIN NA’S HIGHLIGHTS


EXIT QUESTION FOR KEVIN NA

Q. Kevin, this is your first win since 2011 at the Shriners. So many close calls, six runner-up finishes. How satisfying is this one?

KEVIN NA: Oh, it’s indescribable. The amount of close calls I’ve had and disappointments I’ve had, walking off the 18th hole in the locker room, on the drive back to the hotel.

I mean, a lot of heartbreaks, but today everything was going well. Everything was going my way, and it was nice to have that big lead going up to the last hole and enjoying the moment. It was well worth it.


This is a developing post. More to come.
