Kevin Na (USA) took his fifth PGA Tour win (first since 2019) after a couple of excellent final days. Yesterday he signed 61 shots -the best round of the week- and today he had 65, for a total of 21 shots under par.
Joaquín Niemann (CHL) was stalking the lead all day. After the first nine holes he was five strokes off the lead and in the back nine he had four Birdies.
He fought to the end. The 18th hole at the Waialae Country Club is one of the toughest on the Tour and yet he still managed the birdie … Not without first putting the ball in two sand traps …
Now he was at the mercy of what Na would do. Na scored the winning birdie. This is the second weekend in a row Niemann has finished second, as last week he lost in playoffs to Harris English (USA). Still with these results he climbs to third place in the FedEx Cup.
Chris Kirk (USA) was also second, after an excellent week. Every day he shot rounds of 65 shots.
Brandan Steele (USA) led for part of the day after starting first. After an Eagle on hole 9 he was in contention to win but a couple of bogeys on holes 10 and 14 relegated him to fourth place, which he shared with Webb Simpson (USA) and Marc Leishman (AUS).
