Kevin Na produced a record-breaking putting display on his way to a play-off victory at the PGA Tour’s Shriners Hospitals for Children Open in Las Vegas.
Na, who lives in Vegas, made a PGA Tour record of 558 feet of putts during the week at TPC Summerlin, posting a one-under 70 on the final day to join Patrick Cantlay tied on 23 under.
Both players birdied the first extra play-off hole, before a par at the next hole was enough for Na to secure his fourth PGA Tour title, and leaving Cantlay to settle for his second successive runner-up finish in a tournament that he also won in 2017.
Aluding to his impressive form with the putter, Na said: “The putter got hot this week. It tends to do that sometimes, and when it does, if I’m hitting it halfway decent, I feel like I can win. I should have kissed my putter after I won, but I’ll give it a kiss when I get home.”
