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.
Sep 9 - 5:23 PM

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.
Sep 8 - 7:57 PM

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.
Aug 20 - 6:56 PM

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.
Aug 19 - 6:19 PM

Kevin Na blitzed Sedgefield Country Club with a bogey-free, 7-under-par 32-31=63 during round one of the Wyndham Championship, joining Rafa Cabrera Bello for a share of the early lead.

The 32-year-old was firing on all cylinders from the start, splashing home an 11'4" birdie at the par-4 first. He dropped in two birdies from 7-to-8 feet before making the turn. From there, his flat stick really warmed up, rolling in five straight from outside eight feet, starting at the par-4 10th. Na put himself in position all day thanks to great tee-to-green play (10/14 fairways and 15 GIR) but it was the putter that closed the deal, gaining 3.537 strokes putting on the round. Na is making his sixth Wyndham appearance this week, but first since a T18 back in 2010.
Aug 18 - 1:06 PM

Kevin Na styled a bogey-free 7-under-par 32-32=64 in the final round of the John Deere Classic to finish off his sixth appearance on 14-under 270, up 31 places to T6 with play still in progress. UPDATE:With play completed, Na's 64 was tied for the low round of the day with playing competitor Adam Hadwin and finished in a six-way T8.

It's too early to determine where the 32-year-old will eventually land on the leaderboard, but he should nip his previous best of T13 on last visit in 2014. He began the finale buried deep down the board on 7-under (T37) after opening in 69-70 to make the cut on the number (T59), and adding a five-birdie one-bogey 67 in R3. The Las Vegas resident polished off a fine weekend with seven birdies on 15 greens in regulation and 1.583 putts per GIR. His totals for the week show 20 birdies, four bogeys and a double. If the top 10 holds, it will be Na's seventh of the season in 21 starts and fourth top-25 finish in his last five events. At No. 34 in OWGR, he and top-ranked Zach Johnson (22), were the only players in the OWGR top 50 in the field.
Aug 14 - 3:35 PM

Kevin Na crafted a 2-under-par 36-33=69 in the second round of the 145th Open Championship to post 3-under 139, up 24 spots to T11 with play still in progress.

The 32-year-old is making his sixth Open appearance with a best of T27 on debut in 2010 at St. Andrews. He opened with 1-under 70, carding five birdies against two bogeys and a double. The Las Vegas resident mustered seven (of 14) fairways on Day 2 and hit 13 greens in regulation, requiring 26 putts. He squared holes 1, 5 and 9 to cancel out three straight birdies on 5-7 but came to the house in blemish-free 2-under, adding birdie-3s at 12 and 18. Na enters the weekend seven back of 36-hole leader Phil Mickelson.
Jul 15 - 1:36 PM

Kevin Na made his Friday move with a 1-under-par 34-35=69 to reach the midpoint of the WGC-Bridgestone Invitational at even-par 140.

Na got off to a quick start today, trading five birdies with two bogeys over the first 11 holes. This rocketed him up the leaderboard, given the difficulty of Firestone Country Club today, playing more than two strokes over par for the entire field. Na's round was very much a product of a hot putter. He dialed in seven putts from outside eight feet, draining three from outside 17 feet. The longest was a 30'8" birdie bomb at the par-3 seventh hole. Na walked off the course gaining 3.286 strokes with the flat stick. On the week, he ranks second in strokes gained putting and seventh approaching-the-green, a good recipe for success if he can tidy up the rest of his game.
Jul 1 - 6:30 PM

Kevin Na carded a 1-under-par 35-34=69 in today's final round of the 116th U.S. Open for a four-day tally of 1-over 281, up five places on the live leaderboard to T7. UPDATE: With play completed, Na finished in solo seventh, five shy of champion Dustin Johnson.

This was the 32-year-old's sixth appearance and first top 10. His previous best was T12 in 2014 at Pinehurst No. 2. Na began the final round in a nine-way logjam on 2-over, five shy of 54-hole leader Shane Lowry but just one off the overnight top 10. He found seven (of 14) fairways and managed 10 greens in regulation, taking just 27 swipes with the flat stick. The Las Vegas resident's previous best (and only top 10) in 23 prior major appearances was T10 at the 2011 PGA Championship. He was the only player this week to connect three straight red numbers (75-68-69-69).
Jun 19 - 7:24 PM

Kevin Na is rounding into form ahead of this week's PLAYERS, his 10th appearance at the event.

Na missed back-to-back cuts in February, but has since returned to form. After those missed cuts, he's rattled off four cuts made in stroke-play events, anchored by a T4 in his latest start (RBC Heritage). On the course history front, Na has collected top 10s in two of his last three visits to TPC Sawgrass. His fairways and greens style of play is fantastic for the difficult Stadium Course. Despite the three-week recess, gamers should not overlook Na when setting rosters this week.
