Kraft, Varner share Greenbrier lead with Watson lurking

Kevin Na

Na celebrates after winning the Military Tribute At The Greenbrier. Nearly 20 players thought they had a legitimate chance to win the event when the day started.

Na's spectacular putting was the difference on Sunday as he negotiated the hard, fast greens under sunny skies in West Virginia better than Kraft, whose three-putt bogey on the 14th all but ended his hopes of a maiden PGA Tour victory.

Third-round co-leader Kelly Kraft carded an even-par 70, which included a birdie at the par-3 18th, to claim second place at 14 under. 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. He improves to 10-for-21 on the season with four top 25s and three top 10s, bettering a T8 at the CareerBuilder. He also finished sixth at the AT&T Byron Nelson. Na has been able to put himself around the top of the leaderboards on Sunday afternoon, but hasn't been able to close out a victory since the Shriners Open in 2011. "That's the one hiccup I wish we could take back".

Meanwhile, 19-year-old Joaquin Niemann fires a closing 64 to jump 26 spots to a tie for fourth at 12 under. "Kevin just stepped up, played good golf, hit quality shots". The victory was worth $108,000 and moved him from 101st to 24th on the money list.

By the end of Friday's second round, though, the top of the leaderboard had thinned out a little bit.

Brandt Snedeker, Jason Kokrak and Austin Cook were the others to do so.

EUROPEAN: In Donegal, Ireland, Russell Knox of Scotland rolled in almost-identical birdie putts from around 40 feet on the 72nd hole and the first playoff hole to win the Irish Open.

The PGA Tour now moves to Silvis in IL for the John Deere Classic where Bryson DeChambeau defends his title. Bryson DeChambeau is the defending champion. The John Deere Classic has been an official Tour stop since 1972. Steve Stricker holds the tourney records for lowest score (258) and lowest score to par (26-under), set back in 2010. The 34-year-old Na's only previous tour win came in Las Vegas in October 2011. He won the event in 1979, 1991, and 1995, before the tournament moved to the course he designed. Sam Saunders lost out with bogeys on the 16th and 17th holes to miss by one.
