Kevin Na was all smiles after winning the Charles Schwab Challenge and he made his caddie happy too on Sunday.

Na's caddie, Kenny Harms, had another reason for celebrating the American's third PGA Tour victory. 

The winner of the event, held at the Colonial Country Club in Fort Worth, Texas, was promised a 1973 Dodge Challenger.

It did not take Na long to gift it over to Harms, who helped him finish with a four-stroke advantage over the rest of the field. 

As soon as Na's final putt fell in the hole, he pointed at the car and yelled: "That's your car" to Harms as the two embraced on the 18th green.

"We're like brothers, and I'm more than happy to give it to him," Na told media after his round.

Na's final round at the tournament was highlighted with six birdies, four of which were on the front nine. He had a couple of hiccups with a bogey on the par-four seventh hole and again on the par-four 10th but recovered nicely.

"It feels great," Na said after his round.

"Standing on the first tee, I looked at that wall [of winners at Colonial] and I imagined my name on it, and sure enough it's going to be there."

Kevin Na cruised to a four-stroke victory at the Charles Schwab Challenge on Sunday.

Na entered the final round in the lead and the 35-year-old never looked back following a four-under-par 66 in Fort Worth, Texas.

He had six birdies – four of which were on the front nine – and a pair of bogeys en route to his third PGA Tour title.

Na finished 13 under overall at Colonial Golf Course, ahead of fellow American Tony Finau.

"It feels great," Na said after his round. "Standing on the first tee, I looked at that wall [of winners at Colonial] and I imagined my name on it, and sure enough it's going to be there.

"Every year I come here I know I have a chance to win, and I knew before my career was over I was definitely going to win out here, if not multiple times. It's nice to get one, and who knows, maybe I'll win a couple more times before my career is over here."

Finau, who was the 18-hole leader, remained in contention and ultimately finished runner-up following his final-round 68.

He used a birdie on the par-four 18th hole to break out of a tie for second place.

It was his fifth second-place finish since the start of the 2017-18 season — the most of any player on Tour.

Andrew Putnam (66) and C.T. Pan (69) were a shot further back and tied for third, while Jonas Blixt (68) rounded out the top five at seven under.

Rory Sabbatini (67) and Ryan Palmer (69) were locked into a tie for sixth place at six under and Jordan Spieth joined Tyrrell Hatton and Mackenzie Hughes, among others, in a tie for eighth.

Former world number one Spieth had three bogeys and a birdie for a two-over-par 72 as he finished eight strokes off the pace.

Kevin Na built on an impressive second round to take the lead at the Charles Schwab Challenge on Saturday.

The two-time winner on the PGA Tour carded a one-under 69 in the third round to hold a two-stroke lead over the rest of the field.

Na, who carded the best round (62) of the tournament on Friday, played steady golf at Colonial Country Club in Fort Worth, Texas.

Na finished the day with three birdies, including two to open the round on the first and second holes. His only mistake came on the par-five 11th, where he had his first double bogey of the week.

He is nine under for the tournament.

"Over the years I've had some good rounds [at Colonial] and it's a golf course you don't have to overpower. You have to keep it in play," Na said, via Golfweek.com.

"From fairway in I'm a pretty good player, so I think it plays right into my game."

Right behind him is a star-studded tie for second place at seven under, including Jordan Spieth, Tony Finau and Jim Furyk. C.T. Pan and Mackenzie Hughes join them.

Spieth's game, including his putting, has been superb this weekend as he is chasing his first win since the 2017 Open Championship.

It is a good sign for Spieth, who had failed to finish inside the top 20 this year until ending up tied for third at last week's US PGA Championship.

Spieth also opened his round with birdies after a 29-foot putt on the par-five first hole and another 20-foot putt on the par-four second.

Charley Hoffman and Austin Cook are locked in a tie for seventh place at six under while Ryan Palmer, Nick Watney and Jonas Blixt – who was leading the field after 36 holes – are tied for ninth at five under heading into Sunday's final round.

Jonas Blixt took control of the Charles Schwab Challenge after claiming a one-stroke lead at the halfway stage on Friday.

Swedish golfer Blitx carded a six-under-par 64 to sit atop the leaderboard after round two at Colonial Country Club in Fort Worth, Texas. 

Blixt – who is chasing his fourth PGA Tour win and first since claiming the 2017 Zurich Classic of New Orleans – enjoyed a bogey-free round with four birdies and a hole-out for eagle on the par-four 17th.

The impressive hole-out put Blixt one stroke ahead of Kevin Na and Tony Finau, who are tied for second position, at nine under.

Finau had the 18-hole lead but still remains in contention despite a bogey staining his scorecard early in the round. He played steady golf the rest of the way to finish two-under 68.

Na, who has had success at the Colonial Golf Course in Fort Worth, Texas, shot a 62 for the best round of the day.

Rory Sabbatini has sole possession of fourth place at six under, a stroke ahead of former world number one Jordan Spieth.

Spieth – who was tied for third at the US PGA Championship – posted a 70 to be level alongside Nick Watney (68), Jim Furyk (66), C.T. Pan (67) and Jason Dufner (68).

The three-time major champion had another good day putting. Spieth had a career first when he made three putts from outside 40 feet in a single tournament.

Defending champion Justin Rose was able to make the cut after his three-under-par 67 left him one over after 36 holes.

While Rose qualified for the weekend, the likes of Rickie Fowler, Jon Rahm, Bryson DeChambeau, Xander Schauffele and Zach Johnson missed the cut.

A trio of teams remain deadlocked in a tie for first place after round two of the QBE Shootout.

But, some new faces joined the bunch atop the leaderboard in Naples, Florida on Saturday.

The team of Charley Hoffman and Gary Woodland carded an impressive eight-under 64 to move into 19 under. Kevin Na and Bryson DeChambeau dropped into sole possession of fourth place after shooting a 67.

Graeme McDowell/Emiliano Grillo and Brian Harman/Patton Kizzire held on to their places in the three-way tie for first after carding six-under 66s in the modified alternate shot format.

Defending champions Steve Stricker and Sean O'Hair stayed up in a tie for seventh at 15 under. They are joined by Bubba Watson and Harold Varner III, who also stayed put with a 67.

Lexi Thompson, the only LPGA Tour player invited to the event, and team-mate Tony Finau moved down the leaderboard after a round of five-under 67. At one point, this pair was tied for the top spot on the back nine. Finau and Thompson were trading shots when the 10-time LPGA Tour winner set Finau up for a birdie putt on 11. But, this would be just one of two birdies they would card after the turn and it was not enough to keep up with a surging Hoffman/Woodland, who finished with eight birdies, five on the back nine.

The 12 teams will conclude play on Sunday in the four-ball format.

 

Bryson DeChambeau and Kevin Na opened with a first-round 59 to share the QBE Shootout lead with two other teams on Friday.

The PGA Tour's December break is soon coming to an end, but not before it closes out with the QBE Shootout — an unofficial money team event held in Florida.

A limited field of golfers make the trip to the Tiburon Golf Club and this year's tournament features 10-time LPGA winner Lexi Thompson.

Thompson and her partner Tony Finau finished the first day in a tie for fourth at 11 under, two strokes off the pace.

But, the scramble format for round one favoured a handful of other teams, including DeChambeau and Na.

DeChambeau and Na along with the teams of Graeme McDowell/Emiliano Grillo and Patton Kizzire/Brian Harman all ended the day atop the leaderboard.

Bubba Watson/Harold Varner III are among the other teams in the hunt after posting a 62 to be 10 under with 2017 champions Steve Stricker and Sean O'Hair.

Brandt Snedeker​ and Billy Horschel​ are among the four teams tied for ninth.

The second round will feature a greensomes style of play, where the teams will alternate shots until the hole is completed, and the final day will be completed using a better ball format, in which the better of the two scores will be counted.

For the second week running, Russell Knox significantly enhanced his hopes of earning a maiden Ryder Cup appearance as he won the European Tour's Irish Open. 

Kevin Na earned his second PGA Tour victory with a comfortable win at A Military Tribute at The Greenbrier on Sunday.

Kelly Kraft and Harold Varner III finished Saturday's third round at A Military Tribute at The Greenbrier tied for the lead at 14 under.

Kraft led by three strokes on the back nine but two late bogeys knocked him back to the pack.
