Kevin Na Sets Stupendous Putting Stats

Kevin Na proved that great putting can indeed lead to great things–even if the rest of your game is a struggle. At the Shriners Hospitals for Children Open, Na was a magician with the flatstick leading to a playoff win against Patrick Cantlay. Steve DiMeglio files the report.

Na, who made 202 feet of putts in his second-round 62 and 117 feet of putts in his third-round 61, set the record for most feet of putts made in a 72-hole tournament since the PGA Tour started tracking statistics with ShotLink in 2003. He finished his 72nd hole with 558 feet, 11 inches of putts. That bested the record set by Ben Martin, who made 551 feet, 2 inches of putts in the 2015 Dean and DeLuca Invitational.
