Na gets first tour win
LAS VEGAS, NV (TheSpread) – Kevin Na picked up his first-career PGA Tour victory on Sunday as he won the Justin Timberlake Shriners Hospitals for Children Open by two strokes.
Na shot a 6-under 65 on Sunday to finish the tournament at 23-under par, two shots better than tournament favorite, Nick Watney, who finished at 21-under after shooting a 4-under 67 on Sunday.
Na came into the tournament with 50/1 odds to win, meaning a $100 wager on Na will pay out an additional $5,000.
Na was able to finish his tournament strong, birding holes 15-17 to pull away from Watney. Na played the final four holes of the tournament 7-under par for the weekend.
