The entire field went off the first tee in twosomes in reverse order of their FedExCup ranking. Na arrived at East Lake at 27th, so he went out in the second pairing. While he walked off with a two-putt bogey at the par-3 finisher -- his second square on the card -- he picked off four birdies to secure the red number. Na connected three in a row beginning at the par-4 14th. Sep 24 - 3:44 PM

Kevin Na readies for his fourth appearance at this week's TOUR Championship.

Na has some course experience at East Lake Golf Club, but it has not been the greatest. He is still in search of his first finish inside the top half of the field, with a T17 in 2010 the best TOUR Championship finish on his resume. It took a T10 last week to see him climb from 34th to 27th in the FedExCup standings. Na will need the perfect storm in order to take home the FEC title, but he certainly has sleeper potential in many formats.

Kevin Na settled for an even-par 35-36=71 in the final round of the BMW Championship to post 12-under 272, good for a three-way tie for 10th place and 27th in the FedExCup standings.

Na entered the week No. 34 in the FEC standings and needed a high finish this week in Lake Forest, Illinois, to secure his fourth trip to the Playoffs finale. He began his final frame at 12-under (T5) and eight adrift of eventual champ Jason Day. The 32-year-old exchanged three birdies at Nos. 2, 8 and 14 with three bogeys at the par-4 third, fifth and 10th, respectively. His biggest stroke of the day however, came from 9'7" at the last, where his par putt found the bottom of the cup and was accompanied by an emphatic fist pump, signaling he knew it ensured his second consecutive trip to East Lake. This was Na's third BMW top 10 (seven appearances) and seventh of the season on 26 starts, but first since a T10 at the Crowne Plaza Invitational in May.
Sep 20 - 8:38 PM

Kevin Na finished strong on his way to a 1-under-par 36-34=70 in the third round of the BMW Championship.

Na squared bogeys in two of the first four holes before settling for par on seven straight holes. Next, he added another bogey and was staring at 2-over-par on the day. He birdied three of the last five holes to reach 12-under 201 on the week and carry some momentum into Sunday's finale. Na entered the week ranked 34th in the FedExCup race so every shot will count as he tries to maintain or improve upon his current projection of 22nd place.
Sep 19 - 6:59 PM

Kevin Na chased his opening 65 at the BMW Championship with a 5-under-par 32-34=66 to post 11-under 131 at the midpoint, good for sole possession of the 36-hole clubhouse lead.

After finding only 11 greens in regulation in his bogey-free lid-lifter, Na landed 12 today, but he finally squared a bogey after failing to scramble after missing the green at the par-4 first hole where he began his second round. He was flawless thereafter, however, sinking six birdies. The set included conversions from 25'6" and 13'10" at the par-4 third and seventh holes, respectively. While he's currently the target in the clubhouse, the recently turned 32-year-old (this past Tuesday) sat third on the leaderboard when he signed his card.
Sep 18 - 3:05 PM

Kevin Na spun a bogey-free, 6-under-par 34-31=65 in his opening round of the BMW Championship, finishing five strokes off the clubhouse lead.

Na was sitting out with a back injury in 2013, so he didn't compete in the FedExCup Playoffs, which means that he didn't see Conway Farms until this week. Suffice it to say that it's agreeing with him. Positioned 34th in points this time around, he hit only 11 greens in regulation but picked off six birdies, including a hole-out from off the green 15 yards away at the par-4 fifth. His most notable conventional conversions dropped for birdies from 23'1" and 10'3" at Nos. 1 and 6, respectively.

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.
