Kevin Na gets first PGA win since 2011

(WHITE SULFER SPRINGS, WV) – Kevin Na rode a hot putter to halt a winless streak of nearly seven years on the PGA Tour. Na shot a 6 under 64 for a five-stroke victory at A Military Tribute at The Greenbrier on Sunday. The 34 year old Na's only previous tour win came in Las Vegas in October 2011. He's had three dozen top-10 finishes since that last win and showed signs earlier this year that reaching the top again was still well within reach. He tied for second at the Genesis Open in January, two shots behind Bubba Watson. In late May he shot 61 in the first round of the Fort Worth Invitational to match the course record and finished fourth. Starting Sunday's round one stroke behind co-leaders Harold Varner and Kelly Kraft, Na birdied six of his first 10 holes to open a big lead on the Old White TPC, and he cruised from there. The only blemish on his card was a bogey on the par-4 11th after driving into the rough. Na finished at 19 under 261 and picked up the $1.31 million winner's paycheck. Kraft shot 70 and finished second at 14 under. Brandt Snedeker (64) and Jason Kokrak (67) tied for third at 13 under. The only drama down the stretch was who would pick up the last of the tournament's four qualifying spots to the British Open in two weeks. Na had already earned a spot. Varner needed to make a birdie putt on either No. 17 or 18 to get there, but he parred both holes. That gave the final spot to Austin Cook. Kraft, Kokrak and Snedeker were the other qualifiers.
