World No. 64 Kevin Na fired a bogey-free 8-under-par 31-32=63 in the final round of the BMW Championship to conclude on 3-under 281, up 15 places on the live leaderboard to T53 and matching the low round in the clubhouse with Brooks Koepka. UPDATE: With play completed, Na finished T53 and his 63 remained tied for the low round of the day.
The 34-year-old wrapped with a season-tying-low effort, but after opening in 73-73-72, was too far back to make any real waves and is eliminated from the Playoffs at a projected 45th in the FedExCup standings, down four spots on the week. This is the first time since an injury-shortened 2013 season that he's failed to advance to the TOUR Championship. Na ends his campaign with seven top 25s in 26 events and five top 10s, which is his lowest amount of top-10 finishes -- in a full season -- since four in 2010. Sep 17 - 2:56 PM

Kevin Na settled for a 5-under-par 32-44=66 during the closing round of the Dell Technologies Championship, tidying up a top 10 on 11-under 273 on the week.

Na was in full control from tee-to-green today, but left plenty of strokes out on the course. Throughout the round, he gave himself nine scoring chances from inside 13 feet but converted on just five of them. He also missed on a 3'4" bogey attempt at the 11th. Of course, his putter wasn't completely dormant as he did gain 1.427 strokes putting at the time he signed his card. That was largely due to a 62'7" birdie bomb converted at the 14th in addition to a 23'5" pop at the par-3 third hole. Starting the week at 63rd in the FedExCup race, he couldn't afford to rest easy. Luckily, Na kept his foot on the gas and now projects to be inside the top 40 in the FEC standings, heading into the final two events of the Playoffs.

Beginning off No. 10 tee, World No. 73 Kevin Na patched together a 2-under-par 34-35=69 in the second round of the Dell Technologies Championship for a two-day total of 5-under 137, down three places on the live leaderboard to T9, four shy of 36-hole clubhouse leader Jon Rahm.

The 33-year-old mustered seven (of 14) fairways and 11 greens in regulation, losing 0.795 strokes off-the-tee but gaining 1.124 around-the-green. He carded five birdies at holes 17, 18, 3, 4 and 6, taking some luster off with three bogey-5s at 12, 15 and 1 (missed par-saver from 4'3"). The Las Vegas resident dropped four conventional birdies, all from inside of eight feet, adding a hole-out birdie-2 at 3 (greenside bunker) from 39'11" away. He posted 1.636 putts per GIR and 0.149 SG: Putting, currently No. 1 in the former with a cumulative 1.526.

Kevin Na caught fire with the flat stick en route to a 3-under-par 35-33=68 during round one of the Dell Technologies Championship.

Na split eight (of 14) fairways and found just eight greens in regulation. Despite the poor ball-striking, he held his round together with great short-game play. That including a four-pack of putts converted from outside 10 feet, two from the 20-to-22 foot range. Around the green, he holed out from 29 feet for birdie at the tricky par-4 12th. He was the only golfer in the entire morning wave to birdie the newly renovated 12th, picking up nearly a shot and a half on the field with that birdie. The 33-year-old is making his 10th appearance at TPC Boston, with a T11 during the 2009 edition going as his lone top 30 here. Entering the week at 63rd in the FedExCup race, his back is against the wall, needing to remain inside the top 70 in order to qualify for the BMW Championship.
Sep 1 - 1:38 PM

World No. 80 Kevin Na stalled out to a 2-under-par 31-37=68 in the final round of the Wyndham Championship, falling two spots to season-tying-best T4 on 17-under 263, five back of champion and playing competitor Henrik Stenson.

After opening in 67-63-65, the 33-year-old began in a three-way T2 on 15-under, one back of 54-hole leader Stenson. Playing out of the final twosome, he hit eight (of 14) fairways and 15 GIR, losing 0.299 strokes off-the-tee and 0.272 approaching-the-green. The Las Vegas resident went out in blemish-free 4-under, circling Nos. 2 (from 42'1"), 3 (18'0"), 8 and 9, taking a one-shot lead at the break. He limped home in 2-over, outpacing birdie-4 at 15 with bogey-5s at 11, 13 (3-putt from 17'8") and 18 (3-putt from 34'3"), missing a come-backer at the last from 31 inches that dropped him out of a share of 3rd. Na posted 1.800 putts per GIR and 0.256 SG: Putting, needing 31 total putts. This is his third top 25 in seven Wyndham's, third straight, and second top 10, second straight (T10/2016). It's Na's sixth top 25 of the season in 23 starts and fourth top 10, matching a T4 at the Genesis back in Feb. He bumps 18 spots to 75th in the FEC standings.
Aug 20 - 7:29 PM

World No. 80 Kevin Na styled a 5-under-par 33-32=65 in the third round of the Wyndham Championship to reach 15-under 195, up four spots into a three-way T2, one back of 54-hole leader Henrik Stenson whom he'll be paired with in the final twosome on Sunday.

After opening in 67-63, the 33-year-old began T6 on 10-under, three shy of 36-hole co-leaders Webb Simpson and Ryan Armour. He striped 13 (of 14) fairways and found 13 greens in regulation, posting 1.229 SG: Off-the-Tee and -0.021 SG: Approach-the-Green. The Las Vegas resident squared a lone bogey-4 at No. 7, missed par-saver from 5'1", camouflaged by six circles at 5, 8, 9, 14, 15 and 17, two from between 12 and 44 feet. He registered 1.538 putts per GIR and 2.693 SG: Putting, needing 26 total putts. Na's lone TOUR title in 347 prior career events is the 2011 Shriners as 54-hole co-leader.
Aug 19 - 6:58 PM

Kevin Na rocketed up the leaderboard in round two of the Wyndham Championship, piecing together a 7-under-par 30-33=63 to reach 10-under 130 after 36 holes, two off the early pace set by Henrik Stenson.

Na leaned heavily on the flat stick in his opening-round 67, but today he dialed in his irons and wedges. Before the day was done, he setup eight scoring chances from inside 10 feet, five of those from inside 5 feet. That was good for +4.349 strokes gained approaching-the-green, at the time he signed his card. Making his fourth appearance at Sedgefield Country Club, this is already his third time posting a round of 63 or better at the Donald Ross design (9-under 61 in R3 of 2010 being the best). This doesn't quite match Matt Every's 61 from Thursday, but Na's 63 does go in the books as the co-low round of the Friday morning wave (Soren Kjeldsen).

Kevin Na grinded out a 4-under-par 35-33=68 during the opening round of the 117th U.S. Open Championship, staking out an early spot inside the top 10 on the live leaderboard.

Na generated a lot of buzz early in the week with his fescue rant across social media channels. He avoided that thick fescue today as he split 11 (of 14) fairways on his way toward 13 greens in regulation. While his striking was steady, it was not spectacular, setting up just two birdie looks from inside 11 feet today. The putter bailed him out on a few occasions, saving par twice from the 12-to-13 foot range. Despite the course playing 7,845 yards today, Na proved that distance isn't everything here at Erin Hills Golf Course.

Kevin Na completed two holes during round one of THE PLAYERS before withdrawing due to illness.

Na opened his week on the back nine and started with a pair of bogeys before finding the rough with his tee shot at the par-4 12th. He failed to find a fairway on all three holes and three-jacked at the par-5 11th. At 2-over-par, Na certainly wasn't out of contention, but couldn't keep going. We will pass along any updates if news pops up on the specificity of the illness that forced this WD. This goes in the books as his 15th career mid-tournament WD in 341 starts.
May 11 - 8:35 AM

Prior to the start of the event, Kevin Na has withdrawn from this week's Valero Texas Open, giving first alternate Willy Wilcox a spot in the field.

TPC San Antonio is the site of Na's infamous 16, which was carded in R1 of the 2011 edition on the par-4 ninth hole. He's overcome those demons with finishes of T11 and T20 over his last two visits, but decided to take a pass this week. There is no injury cited at the time, but we will be sure to update if any news gets passed along. In his place, Willy Wilcox will get his second look at the AT&T Oaks Course at TPC San Antonio, missing the cut in 2014 with rounds of 75-79=154 (+10).

Kevin Na lost his 100% record in falling 2-and-1 to Chris Wood but grabbed a second chance when thrust into a play-off, defeating Matt Fitzpatrick to make the knockout stage of the World Golf Championship-Dell Technologies Match Play.

The American had cleaned up Fitzpatrick earlier in the week and yet, under the rules of the championship, head-to-head records count for nothing when tallies are tied. So having both ended the first three days 2-1 they headed to the first tee for extra holes. Na knocked his 116-yard approach close and converted the birdie chance. Earlier he was taken down by Wood despite holding a 4-up lead after six holes, thanks to no less than five birdies in that stretch. But he then lost seven of the next eight holes (to two bogeys and a double bogey of his own, plus four Wood birdies). In a rollercoaster match Na extended the excitement with a par breaker at 16 before the taller man closed it out. After grabbing his lifeline in the play-off, Na can now prepare to play Bill Haas in the round of 16.
Mar 24 - 2:53 PM

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.
