Kevin Na pieced together a beautiful round en route to a 4-and-2 victory over Justin Thomas in round two of the World Golf Championships-Dell Technologies Match Play, earning his second point of the week to put him in the Group 6 driver's seat.
Na found himself 1-down thru 7, despite playing bogey-free golf that included a birdie. That is a testament to Thomas' strong play, but Na didn't back down. He remained steady as he kept a clean card by day's end, despite playing in blustery conditions that wrecked havoc on many golfers today. With this strong win, Na improves his career record at Austin Country Club to 4-0-1, as he was the only golfer to earn 2.5 points last year and not advance to the round of 16. With a one point advantage over Thomas and Fitzpatrick, Na can seal his trip to the Sweet 16 with a halve or win tomorrow. In his favor, he is playing Chris Wood who owns a career WGC-Match Play record of 0-7-0. Mar 23 - 5:19 PM

Kevin Na led from start to finish en route to a 5-and-4 victory over Matthew Fitzpatrick in round one of the WGC-Dell Technologies Match Play.

The Englishman, Fitzpatrick, looked a bit loose out of the gates, swallowing bogeys in two of the opening three holes to find himself 2-down early. Na took advantage of the early lead which allowed him to play a bit more aggressive. He rattled off a birdie at the par-4 fifth, an eagle at the par-5 sixth, and another birdie at the par-3 seventh. The eagle came as a result of good tee-to-green play as he splashed it home from just 9'10". Na's round was good enough to stay competitive in most matches today, but Fitzpatrick didn't have his best stuff today, which allowed Na to run away with this one. Up next, Na will take on Justin Thomas in Round 2.

Kevin Na took a pass on the pro-am at this week's Valspar Championship, citing an illness as he recuperates from last week's event.

Na joins a list of golfers that played in last week's WGC-Mexico Championship and are now sitting out the pro-am this week. Chantel McCabe of Golf Channel reported via Twitter, "Health concerns in FLA-Justin Thomas, Daniel Berger & Kevin Na did not play in Pro-Am due to sickness. Have not WD from tournament." Gamers should be on the lookout for any last-minute decisions, but all three should be ready to roll come Thursday morning.

World No. 53 Kevin Na tacked on a 1-under-par 36-34=70 in today's final round of the Genesis Open in Pacific Palisades, California, to post 11-under 273, down two places on the live leaderboard to T5.

After opening in 67-69-67, the 33-year-old began the finale in solo 3rd, seven in arrears of 54-hole leader Dustin Johnson. There was no re-pairing between Rounds 3 and 4, so he played out of the fourth-to-last threesome. The South Korean found eight (of 14) fairways and 12 greens in regulation, recording a pedestrian 1.923 putts per GIR and 31 putts total. He squared a lone bogey-4 at six (failed sand save), slightly outpaced by back-to-back birdies at 10 and 11 from 7'8" and 11'0", respectively. Na got off to a patchy start, 3-putting the par-5 first (for par) from 33'6", missing birdie from 44 inches, but made three par-savers from between five and 10 feet. This was his eighth start of the season and second top 10, joining solo 7th at the season opener in Napa.

World No. 53 Kevin Na styled a bogey-free 4-under-par 33-34=67 in the two-day third round of the Genesis Open for a 54-hole tally of 10-under 203, up four spots on the live leaderboard to solo 3rd with third- and final-round play in progress.

This is the 33-year-old's 14th appearance with two top 10s, including a best of solo 3rd in 2011. After opening in 67-69, he began R3 in a four-way T7 on 6-under, four adrift of 36-hole leader Dustin Johnson. The Las Vegas resident had just teed off on Saturday when play was suspended, so he played all 18 holes on Sunday morning. He circled an eagle-3 at the first (from 8'1") and birdies at 11 (23'0") and 16 (12'10") on seven (of 14) fairways and 15 greens in regulation, posting a pedestrian 1.800 putts per GIR but a tidy 3.185 SG: Putting. Na's lone victory in 332 prior career starts remains the 2011 Shriners.

Kevin Na returns to Waialae Country Club for a 12th appearance at this week's Sony Open in Hawaii.

Na is going through all the wonders of being a first-time father (since late August), and that means his golf game has been playing second fiddle lately. Perhaps the holiday break gave him some time relax and recharge the batteries. Course-wise, he is 8-for-11 at Waialae CC, including a trio of top 10s. The most recent was a T8 at the 2014 edition. Na remains long overdue for a second win on the PGA TOUR.

Past champ Kevin Na crashed and burned to a 4-over-par 38-37=75 in the second round of the Shriners Hospitals for Children Open and at 1-over 68-75=143 missed the cut by four shots.

A total of 74 players made the cut of 3-under 139. Na won the 2011 edition, his ONLY TOUR title in a now 329 career starts, and was also T2 here last year. He opened in bogey-free 68 but cancelled out four birdies in R2 with SIX bogeys and a double bogey-6. The 33-year-old managed just four (of 14) fairways and 10 greens in regulation, losing 4.294 strokes tee-to-green. Na opened the season solo seventh at the Safeway but has gotten progressively worse with T29-T54-MC. Other notable early exits include: 140- Graeme McDowell; Ryo Ishikawa ... 141- 2010 champ Jonathan Byrd; OQ medalist Kurt Kitayama (TOUR debut) ... 142- Danny Lee; Patton Kizzire; David Lingmerth ... 143- 2001 champ Bob Estes; William McGirt ... 144- Grayson Murray ... 147- Charley Hoffman; Patrick Rodgers ... 148- Nick Watney; top-ranked Jimmy Walker (OWGR No. 18) ... 152- 2015 champ Ben Martin.

With lift, clean and place in effect, Kevin Na orchestrated a bogey-free 6-under-par 32-34=66 in today's final round of the Safeway Open to reach 15-under 273, up four places to T6 with play still in progress. UPDATE: With play completed, Na finished solo seventh, three shy of champion Brendan Steele.

The 33-year-old was making his sixth appearance and departs with his third straight top 10. He was a playoff loser here last year and also posted a T3 in 2013-14 (Corde Valle GC). The Las Vegas resident, coming off a last-place finish at the TOUR Championship, began the final frame in a six-way logjam on 9-under (T10), five shy of 54-hole leader Patton Kizzire. He carded all six of his birdies thru his first 12 holes, but then stalled out with six straight pars. Na hit all 18 greens in regulation and is currently leading in that stat at 83.33 percent (60/72). He gained 3.678 strokes tee-to-green but posted a pedestrian -0.182 SG: Putting, including missed scoring chances from inside of 13 feet at 16, 17 and 18.

With preferred lies in effect, Kevin Na tossed up a bogey-free 6-under-par 34-32=66 in two-day second round of the Safeway Open to reach the midpoint on 7-under 137, up 52 places to T11, eight adrift of 36-hole leader Scott Piercy.

A playoff loser here last year, Na opened his sixth appearance with an indifferent two-birdie one-bogey 71. He was 3-under thru 11 holes of his second round (T29), ending the day with a pitch-in birdie-2 at the 11th when play was ditched on Friday. Earlier, the 33-year-old also pitched in for birdie at the par-4 fourth. He returned Saturday morning to card four pars before going on a three-birdie train on holes 16-18 to end in style. Na was in positive territory in all strokes gained categories, highlighted by a 3.473 strokes gained: Tee-to-Green.

World No. 36 Kevin Na does battle in his fifth TOUR Championship and weighs in as the 22-seed in the FedExCup standings.

15 of the 30 combatants are returning from last year's edition, including the newly turned 33-year-old (Sep. 15th), who is making his third straight visit. His T16 (68-73-70-70) in 2015 is his best showing thus far at East Lake GC where overall, he has a scoring average of 71.25 in 16 career laps on the par 70. Na, who sat out the Deutsche Bank after becoming a first-time father on Aug. 29th, entered the postseason off back-to-back top 10s at the John Deere and Wyndham, but missed the cut at The Barclays and posted a T20 at the no-cut BMW Championship (69-68-72-72).

Due to the overnight and Saturday morning weather forecast, third-round tee times at the BMW Championship will be threesomes off both tees between 11-1:01 PM ET. UPDATE: Due to 1.6 inches of overnight and morning rain, the start of R3 has been delayed until 12:00 PM. UPDATE #2: R3 start pushed back to 12:30 PM.

Kevin Na secured a reservation off No. 1 tee on Saturday with a bogey-free 4-under-par 34-34=68. He carded three par breakers, two birdie-4s and an eagle on the par-5 15th (from 24 feet) to post 7-under 137 at the midpoint, up 10 places to T6, seven shy of 36-hole co-leaders Roberto Castro and Dustin Johnson. The soon-to-be 33-year-old (Sep. 15th), striped 13 (of 14) fairways and mustered 12 greens in regulation, posting 1.833 putts per GIR and 0.846 SG: Putting. Na missed all six of his GIR on his inward half and kept the card spotless with a pitch-in par at the 17th from the rough 21'4" from the target.

Kevin Na returned to action after the birth of his first child, opening the BMW Championship with a 3-under-par 32-37=69 to sit four strokes off the early pace set by Roberto Castro.

Na split 10 (of 14) fairways to keep himself in good position throughout the round. He fired out of the gates with three birdies and an eagle to reach 5-under through 11 holes. The eagle came at the par-5 fifth hole after he crushed a 285-yard approach shot to inside six feet. He cooled off after a 3 hour, 33 minute weather delay, swallowing bogeys at Nos. 14 and 17 to drop back to 3-under on the day. After skipping the Deutsche Bank Championship due to the birth of his first child, Na entered the week ranked 23rd in the FedExCup race.

Prior to the start of the event, Kevin Na has withdrawn from this week's Deutsche Bank Championship, taking the week off to soak in the joys of becoming a father for the first time.

The 32-year-old welcomed his daughter Sophia Ria Na into the world on Monday. He remained committed to the DBC at that time, but his initial plan was to skip TPC Boston since it fell right on the due date. Na held true to his initial schedule and is no longer in the field this week. At 14th in the FedExCup standings he can afford the week off and gamers should look to possibly re-invest next week at Crooked Stick when "nappy factor" will be in its freshest form.

First-round co-leader Kevin Na signed for a 3-under-par 31-36=67 after the third round of the Wyndham Championship for a three-day total of 13-under 197, down one spot into three-way T3, five back of 54-hole leader and playing competitor Si Woo Kim, who shot 64. UPDATE: Na returned from a delay of 1 hour, 22 minutes on Sunday to bogey the 72nd hole, ending his sixth appearance with an even-par 33-37=70 and a four-day tally of 13-under 267, down eight spots to T11.

The 32-year-old airmailed his approach to the par-4 18th (32 yards past the target), his ONLY missed green in regulation, eventually eating double bogey-6, and dropping out of the final pairing with Kim on Sunday to the third-to-last twosome. He began the third frame in a four-way T2, two shy of Kim, after opening in 63-67. The Las Vegas resident kicked off with five straight two-putt pars before connecting five consecutive birdies on holes 6-10. Three of those traveled greater than 14 feet, kicking off the run with a 33-footer for birdie-3 at the sixth. After narrowly missing a sixth straight circle on 11, by one inch, he stalled out to play his final seven holes in 2-over, exchanging a 3-putt bogey on 12 with a 32-inch birdie on the par-5 15th.

Overnight co-leader Kevin Na steadied a 3-under-par 34-33=67 during the second round of the Wyndham Championship, maintaining a spot in the top 5 at 10-under 130.

In a similar case to Rafa Cabrera Bello, Na lost the magic touch on the greens today. After gaining 3.928 strokes putting in round one, he lost 0.637 today. He split just six fairways on the day which may have lowered the quality of his greens hit (16). Na added the Wyndham to his schedule in anticipation that he'll be missing the second leg of the FedExCup Playoffs, the Deutsche Bank Championship. His wife is due with their first child that week. Through two days, the 32-year-old is doing a great job of padding his FEC totals.
