PGA TOUR VIDEO: Kevin 'Aggressive Coming Down the Stretch' Na Wins Sony Open in Hawaii

KEVIN NA FIRED A CLOSING 65 to win the 2021 Sony Open in Hawaii by a shot over Chris Kirk and Joaquin Niemann. Na birdied three holes in a row beginning on 13 and also birdied 18 to finish 21 under for the tournament. It was his fifth victory on the PGA Tour.

"I was playing maybe a little bit more aggressive coming down the stretch," Na said, "not worrying so much about second or third, more focused on just that -- winning."

Na is now ranked No. 23 in the world. It's the fourth consecutive season he's won on tour.

The Sony Open in Hawaii was the first full-field event of the calendar year. Defending champion Cameron Smith returned to Oahu and major champion Collin Morikawa and 10 of the top-25 golfers in the world also teed it up at Waialae Country Club.

The next stop is The American Express at the PGA West Stadium Course in La Quinta, California.
