Kevin Na cruises to 5-shot victory at A Military Tribute at the Greenbrier
Kevin Na shot a final-round 64 en route to his first PGA Tour win since 2011 at A Military Tribute at the Greenbrier.
The win is Na’s second PGA Tour win.
Na was one shot off the lead heading into Sunday’s final round, but he quickly climbed into the top spot after he made five birdies in a six-hole stretch on the front-nine and went out with a 29. Na continued the hot stretch on the back-nine with a birdie on the par-4 tenth.
Na added two more birdies on the back-nine to get to 19-under par for the tournament, which was good enough for a 5-shot victory.
Na’s come-from-behind performance keeps a tradition alive at what was formally known as the Greenbrier Classic. None of the eight winners have held a share of the lead going into the final round.
Harold Varner III, who shared the 54-hole lead, finished the final round with a 2-over 72 and fell to 12-under par for the tournament, but was still able to finish in a tie for fifth place.
2017 Greenbrier Classic champion Xander Schauffele went into the final round just one shot off the lead, but was plagued by a stretch of five consecutive bogeys on the front-nine Sunday, bringing 8-under for the tournament.
