Kevin Na picks up second PGA Tour win

Kevin Na Na's only previous PGA Tour victory was the 2011 Shriners Hospitals Open

Kevin Na has broken a almost seven-year winless drought on the PGA Tour, shooting a 6-under 64 Sunday for a five-stroke victory at A Military Tribute at The Greenbrier.

It was Na's second PGA Tour title but his first since 2011 and he was understandably emotional afterwards especially given how many times he had come close to winning since his breakthrough at the 2011 Justin Timberlake Shriners Hospitals for Children event in Las Vegas.

"I never knew when the next one was going to come", said Na afterwards.

"I'm just going to stay patient tomorrow", he said. "I've been close so many times and failed so many times". He improves to 10-for-21 on the season with four top 25s and three top 10s, bettering a T8 at the CareerBuilder.

Bubba Watson shot 65 and was among three players at 11 under. Na finished at 19-under 261 and picked up the $1.31 million winner's paycheck.

Third-round co-leader Kelly Kraft carded an even-par 70 to claim second place on 14 under, with fellow Americans Brandt Snedeker and Jason Kokrak tied for third a shot further back. His birdie stretch included making putts of 24, 33 and 43 feet.

Kraft said he struggled judging the speed of his putts. "The first day the putter felt terrible, and (then) it just clicked. Things were just happening and for some reason I felt like it was my day", he said. He cried during a TV interview after the round as he relayed a message to fans in Korean.

Fox, who shot a 68, earned one of three spots to the British Open in two weeks at Carnoustie. That gave the final spot to Cook.

On Sunday's gaffe, Mickelson said he "wasn't really thinking".

Before teeing off on the par-four seventh he stepped on a tuft of grass, which he later told rules officials was in his preferred line, leading to the penalty. That broke by four shots to par the record Kim had shared with Annika Sorenstam. Three straight birdies from Nos.

The only blemish for Kim at the tournament was a double bogey in the second round.

Kim finished at 31-under par.

Na shot a final-round 6-under 64, highlighted by five birdies on his first nine holes.

Varner sank a nine-foot birdie putt at 11.

He sank a five-foot birdie putt at the fourth and one twice as long at the fifth before dropping a 32-footer at the sixth.

"It feels incredible", Na said. "It's why I play golf - all the practice days, all the misses, all the bad moments, all are taken care of with putts like that Making two of them from nearly identical positions, I mean, that's a bit of a bonus".
