Kevin Na rolls into the RBC Heritage at Harbour Town Golf Links looking to make noise this week.
Na has made the cut in five consecutive tournaments, and nine of his 10 events this season. That includes an impressive runner-up showing in a star-studded field at the Genesis Open. In the week after the Masters, the field is much less stacked this weekend in the low country. Much of Na's success can be attributed to his work out of the sand traps, and especially on the green. Na ranks third on the PGA Tour in Putts Per Round (27.79). He is a solid sleeper heading into this weekend's tournament. Apr 12 - 1:33 AM

Following an 11th-hour WD at last week's Valspar Championship, Kevin Na is set to return at this week's Arnold Palmer Invitational. UPDATE: Na returned at the Arnold Palmer Invitational and opened the week with rounds of 71-70=141 (-3), good for a spot just inside the top 30 ahead of the weekend.

Na backed out at the last minute during last week's Valspar Championship. On the bright side, his pre-tournament WD yielded a spot for Adam Schenk who ended up securing a T59. On the downside, Na may not be out of the woods just yet. Last Thursday, Na shared the news to his Instagram followers saying, "WD this week due to neck injury. (Did not start) Should be back for APInv." The scary word for gamers in that sentence is should. This injury should drastically lower his ownership in DFS formats but most gamers should look for alternatives if they want to play it safe this week.

Prior to his first-round tee time, Kevin Na has withdrawn from this week's Valspar Championship, citing a neck injury. He will be replaced by second alternate Adam Schenk with first alternate Shawn Stefani likely not sticking around or taking a pass.

Na was set to begin his week at 1:08 p.m. ET alongside Nick Taylor and Martin Laird. Instead, his 11th-hour withdraw was announced at 12:42 p.m. meaning this was likely a last-minute decision on whether to give it a go or not. Na was arriving fresh off a runner-up finish at the Genesis Open in his latest start (three weeks ago). That was his first podium finish since the 2016 CareerBuilder Challenge. Season-long gamers should be optimistic about the Genesis Open result but DFSers and other short-term managers should proceed with caution the next time Na pegs it.

World No. 95 Kevin Na authored a 2-under-par 34-35=69 in the final round of the Genesis Open to post 10-under 274, up one place into a season-best T2, two adrift of overnight leader and champion Bubba Watson.

The 34-year-old improves to 9-for-15 at the Genesis with five top 25s and four top 10s, second straight, and third top 5. His best is solo 3rd in 2011 and finished T4 last year, and has now put eight straight in the red at Riviera CC. After kicking off in 68-70-67, the Las Vegas resident began T3, two back of Watson. Playing out of the penultimate threesome, he hit 11 (of 14) fairways and nine greens in regulation, gaining 0.612 strokes around-the-green, No. 1 in the latter with a cumulative 5.803. The one-time TOUR winner squared three bogey-5s at holes 7, 12 and 13, outflanked by five birdies at 1, 9, 10, 11 and 17, all from inside of eight feet. He posted 1.556 putts per GIR and 1.469 SG: Putting with 24 total putts. This is Na's ninth runner-up in 359 career TOUR events, first since T2 at the 2016 Shriners. He improves to 7-for-8 on the season with two top 25s (two straight) and one top 10.

World No. 95 Kevin Na bobbed and weaved to a 4-under-par 31-36=67 in the third round of the Genesis Open, climbing three spots to T3 on 8-under 205, two short of 54-hole leader Bubba Watson.

The South Korean-born American grew up in the L.A. area and was solo 3rd here last year thru 54 holes before 1-under 70 for T4. He's vying for a second TOUR title in 359 career events, joining his maiden win at the 2011 Shriners in his adopted hometown of Las Vegas, 148 starts ago. After kicking off with 68-70, he began T6, three back of 36-hole co-leaders Patrick Cantlay and Graeme McDowell. The 34-year-old hit nine (of 14) fairways and nine greens in regulation, gaining 1.954 strokes around-the-green, No. 1 in the latter with a cumulative 5.191. He was bogey-free 5-under thru 11 holes, yielded three shots with double at 12 and bogey at 13, but retrieved two with circles at 14 and 17, including a hole-out 2 from a greenside bunker at 14 from 49'7" away. Na posted 1.444 putts per GIR and 1.439 SG: Putting with 23 total putts. He'll play out of the penultimate threesome for R4.

Kevin Na was off to the races in round one of the Genesis Open, firing a 3-under-par 34-34=68 to find himself in an early share of ninth place with plenty of action still to go on day one.

Na started his day on the 10th tee and couldn't find the bottom of the cup, beginning his round with five pars and a bogey, despite setting up three scoring chances inside 17 feet. After the bogey, Na turned up his iron game, sticking his 162-yard tee shot to inside three feet at the par-3 16th. A very impressive feat, considering the firmness of the greens today. The other highlight of the round came holes later where he converted from 34'11" (from the fringe) for birdie at the 18th. Na entered the week off a T20 at Pebble Beach, his first top 35 since last August. Gamers should take note that the 34-year-old could be heating up.

Kevin Na pieced together a 5-under-par 35-32=67 during round two of the CareerBuilder Challenge, reaching 11-under 133 as he prepares for the weekend in La Quinta, California.

Playing at the Nicklaus Tournament Course today, Na got his day started on the 10th tee. The highlight of the round came early as he splashed home an eagle putt at the par-5 11th hole. The rest of the round could be described as scrappy as he landed just 11 greens in regulation by day's end but swallowed just one bogey. The Las Vegas resident is no stranger to desert golf so this event was just what the doctor ordered for a slumping Na. He will now turn his attention toward the (relatively) difficult Stadium Course for his Saturday round.

Kevin Na has withdrawn ahead of his round-one tee time at the Shriners Hospitals for Children Open, giving a spot in the field to Rick Lamb.

Na was set to tee off at 12:15 p.m. local time but decided against playing at the 11th hour. There was no reason given at the time of WD, but he's surely gutted to have to sit this one out, his hometown event. Given his official WD was after the early tee times had already gotten underway, gamers are likely stuck with him on their rosters this week. If there are any updates on the status of a potential injury, we will make sure to pass that information along.

Course horse Kevin Na finished with a bogey at the par 5 closer but still managed to shoot his lowest first round at the CIMB Classic in Malaysia, a 6-under-par 32-34=66 that left him in T5 and just two behind leader Cameron Smith.

In three starts at the PGA Tour's now annual visit to TPC Kuala Lumpur, Na owns a pair of top threes. He opened with 69 when runner-up in 2014 and fired a first-round 67 en route to third spot in 2015. Today, he paved the way for his new mark with four birdies in his first seven holes, those circles coming at 1, 3, 5 and 7. After a run of five pars, the American then had a wild ride home with bogey-5 at 13 followed by birdies at 14 and 15, eagle-2 at 16 and a walk-off bogey 6. He'd finished last week's Safeway Open with a 77 to slip from T11 to T37 but that looks like a blip based on his performance today. History says Na will continue his push from here.

Beginning off No. 10 tee, World No. 66 Kevin Na fired a 6-under-par 33-33=66 in the third round of the Safeway Open for a three-day tally of 9-under 207, up 36 places on the live leaderboard to T9, three shy of 54-hole clubhouse leader Bud Cauley and matching the low round of the day thus far with Cauley. UPDATE: With play completed, Na is T11 while Ted Potter, Jr. had the low round with 65.

This is the 34-year-old's seventh appearance with three prior top 10s, including a playoff loss in 2016. He finished 45th in the FedExCup standings last season, missing the TOUR Championship for the first time since an injury-shortened campaign in 2013. The Las Vegas resident kicked off in 71-70 and outpaced two bogeys on Day 3 with eight birdies. He striped 13 (of 14) fairways and hit 13 greens in regulation, gaining 3.337 strokes tee-to-green. Na's split included three conversions from between 13 and 22 feet, posting 1.462 putts per GIR and 1.460 SG: Putting with 26 total putts.

World No. 64 Kevin Na fired a bogey-free 8-under-par 31-32=63 in the final round of the BMW Championship to conclude on 3-under 281, up 15 places on the live leaderboard to T53 and matching the low round in the clubhouse with Brooks Koepka. UPDATE: With play completed, Na finished T53 and his 63 remained tied for the low round of the day.

The 34-year-old wrapped with a season-tying-low effort, but after opening in 73-73-72, was too far back to make any real waves and is eliminated from the Playoffs at a projected 45th in the FedExCup standings, down four spots on the week. This is the first time since an injury-shortened 2013 season that he's failed to advance to the TOUR Championship. Na ends his campaign with seven top 25s in 26 events and five top 10s, which is his lowest amount of top-10 finishes -- in a full season -- since four in 2010.

Kevin Na settled for a 5-under-par 32-44=66 during the closing round of the Dell Technologies Championship, tidying up a top 10 on 11-under 273 on the week.

Na was in full control from tee-to-green today, but left plenty of strokes out on the course. Throughout the round, he gave himself nine scoring chances from inside 13 feet but converted on just five of them. He also missed on a 3'4" bogey attempt at the 11th. Of course, his putter wasn't completely dormant as he did gain 1.427 strokes putting at the time he signed his card. That was largely due to a 62'7" birdie bomb converted at the 14th in addition to a 23'5" pop at the par-3 third hole. Starting the week at 63rd in the FedExCup race, he couldn't afford to rest easy. Luckily, Na kept his foot on the gas and now projects to be inside the top 40 in the FEC standings, heading into the final two events of the Playoffs.

Beginning off No. 10 tee, World No. 73 Kevin Na patched together a 2-under-par 34-35=69 in the second round of the Dell Technologies Championship for a two-day total of 5-under 137, down three places on the live leaderboard to T9, four shy of 36-hole clubhouse leader Jon Rahm.

The 33-year-old mustered seven (of 14) fairways and 11 greens in regulation, losing 0.795 strokes off-the-tee but gaining 1.124 around-the-green. He carded five birdies at holes 17, 18, 3, 4 and 6, taking some luster off with three bogey-5s at 12, 15 and 1 (missed par-saver from 4'3"). The Las Vegas resident dropped four conventional birdies, all from inside of eight feet, adding a hole-out birdie-2 at 3 (greenside bunker) from 39'11" away. He posted 1.636 putts per GIR and 0.149 SG: Putting, currently No. 1 in the former with a cumulative 1.526.

Kevin Na caught fire with the flat stick en route to a 3-under-par 35-33=68 during round one of the Dell Technologies Championship.

Na split eight (of 14) fairways and found just eight greens in regulation. Despite the poor ball-striking, he held his round together with great short-game play. That including a four-pack of putts converted from outside 10 feet, two from the 20-to-22 foot range. Around the green, he holed out from 29 feet for birdie at the tricky par-4 12th. He was the only golfer in the entire morning wave to birdie the newly renovated 12th, picking up nearly a shot and a half on the field with that birdie. The 33-year-old is making his 10th appearance at TPC Boston, with a T11 during the 2009 edition going as his lone top 30 here. Entering the week at 63rd in the FedExCup race, his back is against the wall, needing to remain inside the top 70 in order to qualify for the BMW Championship.
