Korean American professional golfer Kevin Na is still riding high after winning his second career PGA Tour tournament at A Military Tribute at The Greenbrier, putting an end to a seven-year drought.

The seven-year drought is not unfamiliar to the 34-year-old golfer who made his PGA Tour debut in 2004 but did not capture his first win until 2011 according to ESPN.

“I wasn’t sure if it was going to come again. I was hoping it would — sooner than later,” Na told ESPN after his victory Sunday. “I’ve been close so many times, failed so many times.”

Na finished 19 under par for the entire tournament, solidifying a five-stroke victory. KDKA-TV’s Sam McPherson reported there were almost 20 contenders heading into Sunday’s fourth round, but Na took the lead by birdieing six out of the first 10 holes.

In his post-round interview, Na tearfully gave a message in Korean to his fans overseas.

“I didn’t want to leave the Korean fans out,” Na told ESPN.
