White Sulfur Springs, WV – His first win on the PGA Tour took eight years, and his long-awaited encore took another seven. For Kevin Na it has been a long journey full of many disappointments, but Sunday on the Old White Course at the Greenbrier – everything clicked.
Entering the final round one stroke behind 54 leaders Kelly Kraft and Harold Varner III, Na went on a red number blitz that began at the fourth and didn’t conclude until the tenth (Na carded six birdies in seven holes), his Sunday 64 was good enough for a total score of 19 under par – and what seemed to be an easy five-shot victory. “It’s an amazing feeling,” Na said. “I’ve waited a long time for this. Lots of close calls, a lot of disappointments. I wasn’t sure if it was going to come again. I was hoping it would, sooner rather 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.”
Kevin Na went from 58th to 18th in the Fedex Cup standings after Sunday’s victory in White Sulfur Springs (his 2nd career PGA Tour win).
Kelly Kraft drained a 10 footer for birdie at the last for a final round 70 to finish solo second at 14 under par. Russell Henley fired a final round 63 to vault up the leaderboard (finishing in a tie for 10th at 11 under par) on a day when the Old White course did not yield many low scores.
