Kevin Na returns to the PGA Championship for another look at Whistling Straits.
Na didn't qualify for the 2004 PGA but finished T58 the last time Whistling Straits hosted, 2010. He arrives ranked 29th in the FedExCup thanks to six top 10s on the season. Na is one of the shorter hitters off the tee, but he makes up for it with long-iron precision and his 24th-ranked scrambling game. Ranking third in sand saves, specifically. With 1,000 bunkers littered around Whistling Straits, these skills could all come in handy this week. Aug 11 - 8:30 AM

Kevin Na authored a bogey-free, 5-under-par 34-33=67 in today's opening round of The 144th Open Championship.

For a guy who hadn't broken 70 in 12 previous rounds in this major, this is a mild surprise. He went 5-for-5 in scrambling and found five birdies. His last was a 3 at the 18th hole. Na signed his card positioned just one strokes off the pace of the clubhouse co-leaders, but scoring has been so good that he's likely to drift a bit as the groups come in.
Jul 16 - 8:08 AM

Kevin Na hung up a 5-under-par 32-33=65 for his opening round of The Greenbrier Classic, finishing three strokes off the clubhouse lead.

While he missed the cut at last week's Travelers Championship, at least Na enjoyed a couple of extra days of rest. He survived the grind of the U.S. Open even though a T46 at Chambers Bay was his first finish outside a top 20 in a stroke-play start since late February. Today at The Old White TPC, he sandwiches a lone bogey at the par-4 ninth hole with six birdies. Three of his conventional conversions disappeared from outside 11 feet, including a beauty from 44'2" at the par-3 15th hole. Na also converted for birdie from off the green 13 yards away at the par-4 13th. It was a fine performance overall given he hit only 11 greens in regulation.
Jul 2 - 5:41 PM

Kevin Na settled for a 1-under-par 33-38=71 to conclude his sixth Memorial appearance at 9-under 279.

Na began the Sunday finale at 8-under (T14) and seven shots adrift of the 54-hole lead. Looking to redeem his playoff loss in last year's edition, Na circled four birdies against one bogey to turn in 3-under 33. The 31-year-old couldn't keep the momentum, squaring bogey on the par-14th and failing to take advantage of either of the par 5s on his inward half. Na struggled to find fairways on Sunday, hitting just five (of 14) and it eventually caught up with him, swallowing a double bogey-6 on the last to knock him out of the top 10.
Jun 7 - 5:15 PM

Overnight leader Kevin Na back-pedaled to a 2-over-par 36-36=72 in the final round of the Crowne Plaza Invitational at Colonial eventually finishing in an eight-way tie for 10th.

Na began the day with a one-stroke lead over playing partner Ian Poulter and began his round with back-to-back birdies to push his total to 13-under. He wouldn't add another circle to the card until the 18th, squaring bogeys on Nos. 3, 13 and 17. The killer blow however, came at the par-4 ninth, where he hit his approach (from the fairway) into the water, eventually swallowing a double bogey-6. Na found seven (of 14) fairways and 12 greens in regulation needing a 9' conversion for birdie on the last to salvage a top 10, his third in 10 CPI starts and first since a T9 in 2009.
May 24 - 8:55 PM

Overnight leader Kevin Na conjured up a 1-under-par 35-34=69 in today's third round of the Crowne Plaza Invitational at Colonial and his 11-under 199 is good for a one-stroke lead over Ian Poulter.

Na, who began the day with a two-shot lead, split nine (of 14) fairways and hit just nine greens in regulation, finishing with 25 putts. The 31-year-old scrambled successfully 7-of-9 times (including five of six on his inward half) adding a second square on the card at the par-4 15th. Today's round wasn't necessarily about the three birdies that Na managed (ranging from 6'11" to 16'11" on No. 3). It was more about his par putts (two in excess of six feet) and most importantly his 6'9" bogey "save" that disappeared on the par-4 fifth, minimizing the damage of a penalty stroke off the tee to just one dropped shot.
May 23 - 3:27 PM

Overnight co-leader Kevin Na backed up his opening 64 at the Crowne Plaza Invitational at Colonial with a 4-under-par 34-32=66 to post 10-under 130, good for outright possession of the 36-hole lead.

At the time he signed his card, he owned a two-stroke lead over Ian Poulter, who was in the opposite draw. The American split nine (of 14) fairways, hit 14 greens and lassoed five birdies, including a 10-yarder from just off the putting surface at the par-4 14th hole. His longest conventional conversions measured 25'5" and 22'4" at Nos. 10 and 13, respectively. Once again, however, Na bogeyed the par-4 18th. It's the site of his only two dropped shots this week. The 31-year-old will enter the weekend in pursuit of his second PGA TOUR victory. This is his 288th start.
May 22 - 5:48 PM

Kevin Na fashioned a 6-under-par 33-31=64 in today's opening round of the Crowne Plaza Invitational at Colonial to snare sole possession of the clubhouse lead.

Na has been playing exceptionally well in stroke-play event of late, so it's no surprise that he found a low one with preferred lies in play today. He converted birdies on half of his scoring opportunities, including rolls from 21'8" and 18 feet at the 11th and second holes, respectively. His only miscue occurred at the par-4 18th where he squared a bogey after landing his approach in a greenside bunker. This is his lowest aggregate since he closed out regulation with the same at last year's Memorial before losing in a playoff.
May 21 - 3:49 PM

Kevin Na has elected not to tee it up at this week's Wells Fargo Championship.

He's fresh off a T6 at THE PLAYERS, so we'll give him a pass on today's decision not to play Quail Hollow where he's finished inside the top 20 in three of his last four appearances. Na is 24th in the FedExCup standings with top 20s in his last six stroke-play starts.
May 11 - 11:29 AM

Overnight co-leader Kevin Na back-pedaled to an even-par 35-37=72 in the third round of THE PLAYERS to post 8-under 208 and sits two shots back of the 54-hole lead.

For the second round in a row, Na could muster just eight (of 14) fairways and 12 greens in regulation. Unlike yesterday however, where he accumulated a lofty 3.223 strokes gained: total against the field, he fell off to a -0.773 in that same category in the third round. Na began the day in a two-way tie for the lead but opened with a shaky bogey on the first. He settled down with birdies on Nos. 6, 9 and 11 to get to 2-under on the round before squaring his second bogey on the par-4 15th. The 31-year-old got back on track circling a birdie-4 on 16, before suffering a disastrous three-putt double on the 18th after laying two in the green-side bunker.
May 9 - 8:23 PM

Overnight co-leader Kevin Na chased his opening 67 at THE PLAYERS with a 3-under-par 35-34=69 and posted 8-under 136 at the midpoint, good for sole possession of the 36-hole clubhouse lead. UPDATE: Na's aggregate held up for a share of the overnight lead with Jerry Kelly.

It wasn't the prettiest of rounds at TPC Sawgrass, but it was effective. Heck, any sub-70 is embraced no matter the route. Na went just 3-for-6 in scrambling with three bogeys today, but he circled three birdies on each side. Four of them ranged 14-19 feet. At last check, he ranked seventh in the field with an aggregate strokes gained: putting clip of 4.525.
May 8 - 2:21 PM

With a 5-under-par 34-33=67, Kevin Na goes in the books as the fourth and final co-leader after 18 holes of THE PLAYERS.

He went off in the final threesome off the 10th tee at TPC Sawgrass this afternoon. Three of the co-leaders are in the late-early draw. Na went 2-for-2 in scrambling but three-jacked the green at the par-4 15th hole from 56-and-a-half feet for bogey. It was the only stain on a card that featured six birdies, three of which ranging 11-17 feet. He's had success on two occasions in the tournament but Na just recently saw a career-best streak of five consecutive top 20s come to an end at the Match Play, so his form has been red-hot of late.
May 7 - 7:37 PM

Kevin Na was a machine during his 3-and-1 victory over Alexander Levy in the second round of the World Golf Championships-Cadillac Match Play Championship.

Na circled four birdies against no bogey or worse to wear down the Frenchman. Levy did his best to hold his own, but when he bogeyed the par-4 14th to go 3-down, his back was nearly up against the wall. A birdie-3 at 15 trimmed the deficit, but they traded pars at the par-4 16th. Now needing to win the last two to extend, Levy conceded the par-3 17th for the final tally. It eliminated him from having a chance to advance in the tournament, but he'll finish his week with a third-round match against Joost Luiten. Na (1-1) draws Hideki Matsuyama.
Apr 30 - 7:07 PM

Kevin Na has withdrawn from this week's RBC Heritage.

Na tied for 12th place at the Masters, thus earning a return trip in 2016. (The top 12 and ties are exempt.) It was his fifth straight top 20 in 2014-15. At 23rd in the FedExCup standings, he's earned a week off, but gamers hoping to tap into his success at Harbour Town will have to seek success elsewhere.
Apr 13 - 11:48 AM

Kevin Na conjured an even-par 39-33=72 in today's final round of the Masters to post 6-under 282.

Credit Na for keeping his head down today. He hit only 11 greens and made the turn in 3-over thanks to four bogeys, but he found birdies at 12, 14, 15 and 17 before closing with a bogey-5 at 18. At last check, he sat T12 on the leaderboard. That would match his best finish (2012) in four previous trips.
