       Bubba Watson was delighted with his birdie count in a third-round 65 which gave him a great chance to contend

South Korean-born American Kevin Na captured his first US PGA title in seven years on Sunday, firing a six-under par 64 to win the Greenbrier Classic by five strokes.

Kraft birdied the last for an even par 70 and solo second place ahead of compatriots Brandt Snedeker and Jason Kokrak. The 34-year-old Na's only previous tour win came in Las Vegas in October 2011. Chattanooga's Stephan Jaeger (70), a fellow PGA Tour rookie and former Red Raider, shared 47th at 4 under to earn $18,524 and eight points. He had a huge smile on his face and was not embarrassed to release a sigh of relief.

"I've been close so many times".

"Today was fun", Watson said, "but of course I beat him, so it was more fun for me".

"I never knew when the next one was going to come", said Na afterwards.

Kraft said he struggled judging the speed of his putts. "It s nice to get that second trophy". "Hopefully I get this done". I was right there, things were just happening, and for some reason I just felt like it was my day.

"It's undescribable. The amount of close calls I've had and disappointments I've had, walking off the 18th hole in the locker room, on the drive back to the hotel". "I mean, I had a lovely, handsome tee shot".

After a 3rd round 66, Gastonia's Harold Varner III finds himself tied for the lead heading into the final round of the Military Tribute at the Greenbriar.

Kraft, Snedeker, Kokrak and Austin Cook earned spots in the British Open in two weeks. He amassed 17 top-five's since that win before breaking through this week at the Greenbrier. "I'm pretty hungry. This is what you work for. I'm not trying to play prefect golf, I'm just trying to see targets and have fun with it".

By the end of Friday's second round, though, the top of the leaderboard had thinned out a little bit. I've never seen this course this hard. It was pretty hard out there.

Defending champion and reigning PGA Tour rookie of the year Xander Schauffele could manage no better than a 75 while playing alongside Na. Tag Ridings (Arkansas Razorbacks) tied for 27th at 11 under, while Sebastian Cappelen (Razorbacks) tied for 41st at 8 under.

Knox, who tied for second at the French Open last week, goes to No. 5 in the Race to Dubai and will get back into the top 50 in the world. Na played 528 rounds between his two wins. The only blemish on his card was a bogey on the par-4 11th after driving into the rough.

Mickelson double-bogeyed the hole and finished with a 74 on Sunday, at 1 under for the tournament and in a tie for 65th.

The PGA Tour now moves to Silvis in IL for the John Deere Classic where Bryson DeChambeau defends his title.
