Kevin Na Wins at Colonial PDF Print E-mail


Kevin Na celebrates after winning the Charles Schwab Challenge at Colonial.

Fort Worth, Texas - Kevin Na started Sunday with a two stroke lead at

the Charles Schwab Challenge and doubled that margin when all was said

and done (finishing at 13 under par). Na's final round 66 was good enough

for a four stroke victory at one his favorite tour stops - Colonial Country

Club for his third career tour win.


Immediately after rolling in the final putt at the 72nd hole, Na turned to

his caddie Kenny Harms and said, "That's your car!" The fully restored

1973 Dodge Challenger was awarded to the winner, and earlier in the

week, Harms and Na spotted the classic ride along the 10th hole. Harms:

"Kevin that's my car, right?" Na: "Yeah, if I win, I'll give it to you. I don't

know how my caddie convinced me to give him the car, but he's a good

salesman I guess," Na said. "He sold me into it, but I'm more than happy

to give it to him. He deserves it."


Na's impressive record at Colonial includes a course record 61, but this

is his first win on the course that Hogan called his home course for

several decades. "It's a great second shot course that fits my draws so

well," Na said.


With the win Kevin Na moved to 27th in the Fedex Cup standings. Tony

Finau finished solo 2nd after a final round 68 to finish at -9. Jordan

Spieth who started the day tied for 2nd two strokes back, struggled

on Sunday with a 72 to finish tied for 8th at 5 under par.
