This Week In Golf: Kevin Na Dominates Sunday At The Greenbrier

The win ended a seven-year drought for the 34-year-old Na, who won the Shriners Open in Las Vegas and despite some close calls had not taken home a trophy since.

Former Baylor School standout Keith Mitchell (65) tied for 30th at 6 under, won $41,529 and earned 23 FedEx Cup points.

Anirban Lahiri of India, who shot a 61 in the second round, shot 71-76 on the weekend to end up tied for 39th at 5 under.

Kraft said he struggled judging the speed of his putts.

Mickelson had three bogeys, a double bogey and a triple bogey on 18 to go with four birdies for a final-round 74 to finish the tournament tied for 65th. "I see the records on TV, most starts since winning".

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. Hamilton started in pole position but Vettel streaked ahead, and his Ferrari teammate Kimi Raikkonen compounded Hamilton's misfortune when he bumped into him, sending the British driver off the track and leaving him last.

Na had three dozen top-10 finishes since his first win and showed signs earlier this year that reaching the top again was still well within reach.

Snedeker recorded eight birdies and two bogeys on his climb up the leaderboard and was encouraged about his play 10 days before the beginning of the season's third major tournament, the Open Championship at Carnoustie in Scotland.


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.

On the par-par-4 ninth, Stallings's 119 yard approach to 13 feet set himself up for the birdie on the hole.

DONEGAL, Ireland - Scottish golfer Russell Knox rolled in nearly identical birdie putts from around 40 feet on the 72nd hole and the first playoff hole to win the Irish Open.

Fox had an 8-foot birdie putt to extend the playoff, but it caught the lip and spun away.

"It feels awesome", Na said.

Defending champion Xander Schauffele and Kevin Na were at 13 under.

Na broke open a shootout with 12 players within four strokes of the lead by making birdies on six of seven holes starting at the fourth, making two runs of three in a row to seize command.
