Kevin Na is looking to stay hot as he tees it up at this week's RBC Heritage.

Na comes into the week scorching, boasting five top-20 finishes in his last six events. He is no stranger to Harbour Town Golf Links, either, as he has three top 10s credited to him at this venue. When that kind of form meets that kind of course history, it is a good idea to plug-and-play.

Kevin Na lapped TPC San Antonio in 3-under-par 36-33=69 during the third round of the Valero Texas Open.

Na is continuing to exorcise the demons of past history at this venue, picking up four birdies to just one bogey in Saturday's navigation of the AT&T Oaks Course. When looking at his stats, it's a little hard to decipher how he's getting it done. He doesn't rank inside the top 30 in any major statistical category. The answer has to lie in bogey avoidance. His three bogeys for the week are tied for the lowest of the tournament. He goes for his fifth top five in five tournaments in Sunday's finale, which he begins at 7-under 209.

Kevin Na arrived at the halfway point of the Valero Texas Open in 4-under-par 70-70=140.

Classic case of current form over course history here. He's picked off three birdies an squared one bogey in each round at TPC San Antonio this week. Today's set of par breakers featured conventional conversions from 13'3" and 13'4" at the first and 17th holes, respectively. He also rolled in a seven-yarder from the fringe at 9. Given his history on the course and recent turmoil as it relates to his reputation as a slow player, gamers on board are feeling doubly thrilled with his effort thus far. Na sits four strokes off the 36-hole clubhouse lead.

The opening round of the Valero Texas Open was suspended for darkness.

Even though the field was pared to 144 golfers this year, it was impossible to fit the entire round in due to a fog delay of two-and-a-half hours this morning. Forty-five golfers will return at 8:00 a.m. on Friday to finish. This includes Kevin Na, who sits 1-under-par through 16 holes. He'll be hitting his fourth from just off the green at the par-5 eighth before concluding at the par-4 ninth where he penciled in a 16 in his opening round in 2011. In two previous appearances at TPC San Antonio, he's finished 80-77=MC (2011) and 79-WD (2012). However, his recent form in conjunction with the modification made on the track before last year's edition suggested that he could play well today.

Kevin Na turned in a 1-under-par 34-37=71 in his third round of the Arnold Palmer Invitational.

After dealing with hecklers during his first two rounds, Na managed to post his third consecutive red number to land at 4-under 212. He hit only nine greens in regulation, but did most of the damage on them as he converted four putts from 11 feet and longer. This included birdies from 12'11" and 22'1" at the eighth and 11th holes, respectively. He also salvaged a double bogey from 11 feet at the par-4 18th where he rinsed his approach.

Kevin Na arrived at the midpoint of the Arnold Palmer Invitational in 3-under-par 70-71=143 and sits 11 strokes off the 36-hole lead, but his experience wasn't without its distractions.

When you think of heckling, you're likely to envision a knucklehead sitting behind a bench at an NBA game or dolts yelling at players from the seats yards from the batter's box at an MLB game. However, it happens on golf courses, too. Na has been the target for a group of hecklers during his first two walks around Bay Hill. The situation boiled over today, resulting in added security to his threesome that included Ryan Moore and Scott Stallings. "It was all day, both days," said Stallings. "[Na] handled it great, but he just got fired up. ... He’s trying his absolute best. It’s unfortunate ... He had every right to be frustrated." It's likely that Na was subject to the verbal abuse because of his reputation as a slow player, but details about what was said were not shared.

Kevin Na battled for a 1-over-par 39-33=72 in the final round of the Valspar Championship, but came up one-stroke shy of forcing a playoff with John Senden.

It looked like all was lost for Na when he made the turn at the Copperhead Course, following a birdie at the par-5 fifth with a bogey-bogey-double bogey run on six, seven and eight. He showed signs of life with a birdie at the par-5 14th, then made things very interesting with a 14'1" birdie on the par-3 17th. Needing a birdie on the par-4 18th to force a playoff, he hit the green in two but could only two putt.
Mar 16 - 6:05 PM

Kevin Na spun a 3-under-par 34-34=68 in the third round of the Valspar Championship to close the margin to one stroke with 18 holes to play.

Na's day consisted of four birdies and a bogey, but that was hardly the story. For starters, the final pairing of Na and Robert Garrigus were warned on the front nine that they had fallen behind pace, and were eventually put on the clock. Na's reputation as a slow player precedes him, so no shocker there. Another interesting development came at the par-4 10th, which stands as Na's only bogey of the week. Bringing back memories of THE PLAYERS in 2012, he stood over his tee shot on the 10th for a lengthy amount of time and then became frustrated and took a hard swing over the top of his teed ball. It didn't count as a stroke because it was obvious he didn't intend to hit the ball, but red flags of demons swirling in Na's head were thrown up immediately. To his credit, he bounced back from that bogey with birdies on 11 and 15 to reach the 54-hole mark at 7-under 206. He will be in the final pairing on Sunday, so stayed tuned.
Mar 15 - 6:31 PM

Kevin Na backed up his bogey-free 70 in the opening round of the Valspar Championship with another bogey-free loop of Copperhead, this time posting a 3-under-par 34-34=68 in the second round.

Na has capitalized on splitting 23 (of 26) fairways thus far. He's 12-for-12 in scrambling and circled three birdies today. After a pair of pedestrian par breakers on the par-5 14th and first holes, he converted a walk-off hole-out from the rough eight yards away at the par-4 ninth. At the time he signed his card, he held outright possession of the 36-hole clubhouse lead.
Mar 14 - 5:52 PM

Kevin Na spun a bogey-free, 1-under-par 35-35=70 in his opening round of the Valspar Championship, good for early possession of the clubhouse lead.

He went 7-for-7 in scrambling on a day that demanded it to keep one's head above water. Na circled only one birdie, that a 3 from 65 inches at the third hole. This is his first start since missing the cut at the Northern Trust Open, but he's on his way to a lucrative season thanks to three top 10s. He's shown how to remain patient during an injury and return with gusto.
Mar 13 - 1:06 PM

Kevin Na polished off a successful week at the AT&T Pebble Beach National Pro-Am with a 3-under-par 36-33=69 to finish at 8-under 279.

Na turned in a pretty clean lap around Pebble Beach Golf Links, circling four birdies to just one bogey. The stats were equally steady, landing 14 GIR and marginally gaining strokes on the field with the putter. He opened the season with a tie for third at the Frys.com Open, and he now sits in a tie for fourth at Pebble. With two top-five finishes under his belt this early in the year, expect him to peek his head up several more times before the dust settles in 2013-14.
Feb 9 - 7:07 PM

Kevin Na suffered four bogeys on his first five holes in the third round of the AT&T Pebble Beach National Pro-Am, but ended up with a 1-under-par 39-31=70.

The was a weather delay for wind during the third round, and perhaps nobody benefited from the suspension more than Na. After swallowing four consecutive bogeys, beginning with the 11th hole, he played his remaining 13 holes in blemish-free 5-under. That included a birdie to end his day at the par-3 ninth. He finds himself at 5-under 210 entering Sunday's final round.
Feb 8 - 8:02 PM

With a share of 19th place at the Waste Management Phoenix Open, Kevin Na has fulfilled the terms of his Major Medical Extension and will play out of the MME category for the remainder of the season.

It was just a matter of time given how well he's started the season. He completed the tournament in 7-under-par 70-70-68-69=277 with birdies on the last two holes today. The $63,302.00 paycheck fell short of the monetary goal by $22,667, but the 47.50 FedExCup points he collected cleared that threshold by 17.25. For the record, he had 11 starts remaining. Na is 37th in the FedExCup standings as he makes the trip to the Monterey Peninsula for this week's AT&T Pebble Beach National Pro-Am.
Feb 2 - 6:54 PM

Kevin Na settled for a share of 48th place at the Humana Challenge, earning $13,816.80 and 18.50 FedExCup points.

In the annual birdie bloodbath, Na shot 14-under-par 68-68-68-70=274 with an eagle and 23 birdies. It's a letdown given he tied for eighth last week in Honolulu. Still, it chips away at the terms of his Major Medical Extension that's easily within reach any week. Na now has 12 starts to bank just $85,969 or 30.25 FedExCup points and retain status. He ranks 29th on the PGA TOUR in FedExCup points.
