Golf-Na wins by four in Texas to claim third PGA victory

May 26 (Reuters) - Kevin Na, making birdies early and late, cruised to a four-stroke victory over Tony Finau at the Charles Schwab Challenge in Fort Worth, Texas on Sunday. The South Korean-born American rattled off four birdies in his first eight holes, then after Finau pulled within two shots, Na sank two more birdies, including one at the last, to shoot a four-under-par 66 at Colonial Country Club. The round was his third consecutive sub-70 round as he ended at 13-under 267 and collected his third PGA Tour victory. Finau (68) needed a birdie at the last to finish at nine-under with Andrew Putnam (66) and Taiwan’s Pan Cheng-tsung (69) tied for third at eight-under.

Jonas Blixt rebounded from a disappointing third round to take fifth on seven-under as the Swede shot 68.

Hometown favourite Jordan Spieth’s putting deserted him and he did not claim a birdie until the last hole in shooting a two-over 72 that left him eight strokes behind Na. Defending champion Justin Rose finished at five-over with a 70. (Reporting by Gene Cherry in Raleigh, North Carolina; Editing by Greg Stutchbury)
