Na Wins First PGA Tour Event In 6 Years

Kevin Na became a two-time winner on the PGA Tour thanks to a final-round 6-under par 64 to win A Military Tribute at The Greenbrier on Sunday by five strokes over 54-hole leader Kelly Kraft.

Na went on a run of making five birdies over his last six holes on the front nine on Sunday at the Old White TPC to shoot an outgoing 5-under par 29 to open up a comfortable lead. The South Korean-born Na claimed his first victory on the PGA Tour since the 2011 Justin Timberlake Shriners Hospitals for Children Open.

“I tried not to think about winning,” Na said. “Obviously, it seems like I’ve always tried too hard. I mean, how do you say you tried too hard? What is the difference, the fine line between trying too hard and letting it happen?

“Definitely thinking about that trophy. I was definitely thinking about winning, but I was trying to stay in the moment. I just felt great. I just felt relaxed.”

“It’s an amazing feeling,” Na said. “I’ve waited a long time for this. Lot of close calls, lot of disappointments. I wasn’t sure if it was going to come again.

“I was hoping it would, sooner than later, but my game was starting to feel really good this year. I was thinking I was going to win one before the year was over and here it is.”

Bubba Watson (9-under par total, 2-over par 72 on Sunday) and Phil Mickelson (1-under par total, 4-over par on Sunday) fell down the leaderboard during the final round to finish in a tie for 13th and tie for 65th, respectively. Defending champion Xander Schauffelle finished a tie for 21st following a disappointing 5-over par 75 on Sunday.
