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.
