Kevin Na edged Patrick Cantlay in a play-off to win the Shriners Hospitals for Children Open on Sunday.

Na won the PGA Tour event for a second time, adding to his 2011 success after a dramatic final round in Las Vegas.

The American, who carded a second-round 62 and a 61 in the third, finished at 23 under, alongside Cantlay, after a final-round 70.

A par at the second play-off hole was enough for Na to secure his fourth PGA Tour victory as Cantlay made bogey.

Na endured a difficult final round, making a triple bogey on the par-four 10th before recovering, including sinking a 22-footer for par at 17.

Cantlay, who fired a final-round 68, saw a 24-footer for the win at the last just miss, as he finished runner-up for the second straight year.

Na and Cantlay sunk putts for birdies at the first play-off hole, the former walking his in, before the second proved the difference.

Pat Perez (68) finished outright third at 21 under, a shot ahead of defending champion Bryson DeChambeau (63), Adam Hadwin (63) and Brian Stuard (67).

Kevin Na continued his impressive showing at the Shriners Hospitals for Children Open, surging into a two-stroke lead after the third round on Saturday.

The American, the 2011 champion, fired a 10-under 61 to get to 22 under at the PGA Tour event in Las Vegas.

Na bettered his second-round 62 with another stellar round, which included 10 birdies – five on the front nine and five on the back.

He became the second player to record multiple rounds of 62 or better in two different stroke-play events since 1983, according to the PGA Tour.

Na holds a two-shot lead over Patrick Cantlay, who carded a 63 to again be in contention.

Cantlay was runner-up last year and won the tournament in 2017 and the American mixed nine birdies with a bogey during his third round.

Pat Perez jumped into outright third with a nine-under 62 that moved him into 18 under.

Sam Ryder (64) and Lucas Glover (66) are tied for fourth at 17 under, a shot ahead of Webb Simpson (64) and Brian Stuard (67).

Phil Mickelson continued to drop back after shooting a 74 to be at five under, while defending champion Bryson DeChambeau (67) is tied for 21st at 12 under.

Brooks Koepka missed the cut in his first start of the PGA Tour season as four players shared the lead at the halfway mark of the Shriners Hospitals for Children Open.

Koepka, in action for the first time in the 2019-20 season, followed up his opening-round 70 with an even-par 71 during the second round in Las Vegas on Friday.

The world number one was unable to get going, his difficult round including a double bogey at the par-four 11th hole.

Koepka – runner-up at the 2017 tournament – ended up at one under, well back of the cut line of five under in Nevada.

Kevin Na produced the round of the day as the American fired a nine-under 62 to be part of a four-man leading pack.

Na charged into 12 under to sit alongside Brian Stuard (65), Patrick Cantlay (64) and Lucas Glover (63) atop the leaderboard.

The 2011 champion, Na produced a brilliant finish to his round, making eagles at the par-five 13th and 16th before birdies on the final two holes.

Cantlay has enjoyed the tournament in recent years, finishing runner-up last year after winning the event in November 2017, and is in contention once more.

Australian Matt Jones fired an eight-under 63 to be outright fifth at 11 under.

Defending champion Bryson DeChambeau (68) sits back in a tie for 21st at eight under in a group that includes Phil Mickelson (69).

Jon Rahm used a brilliant opening round to grab a three-stroke lead at the WGC-FedEx St. Jude Invitational on Thursday.

Rahm, who is fresh off a tied for 11th finish at The Open, shot an eight-under 62 with five of his eight birdies coming on his back nine at TPC Southwind.

What was more impressive was his putting as Rahm missed just one putt inside 25 feet during the first round in Memphis, Tennessee. He was a perfect five for five from 15-20 feet.

The Spaniard, still looking for his first WGC win, tied the low round of his PGA Tour career.

But, he has a star-studded field behind him.

There is a five-way tie for second place at five under, with Hideki Matsuyama and Bubba Watson joined by Patrick Cantlay, Cameron Smith and Shugo Imahira.

Watson's round featured a birdie on his final hole after bogeys on the par-four 10th and 13th holes.

Behind them is a sizable group of Ian Poulter, Thorbjorn Olesen and Tyrrell Hatton, among others, a shot further back.

Justin Rose, Bryson DeChambeau and Billy Horschel are in a five-way tie for 13th at three under and in good position to move up the leaderboard on Friday.

Jordan Spieth nearly joined the top of the leaderboard after five birdies and just one bogey through 11 holes.

But the American then carded two triple bogeys, making seven at the 12th and 15th holes before finishing with an even-par 70.

World number one Brooks Koepka made a fine start with a 68, while Rory McIlroy and Dustin Johnson opened with 69s.
