Na rides hot putting streak to two-shot lead in Las Vegas

Phil Mickelson's slicing shot from a gravel lie is the first must-see recovery of the PGA Tour season Na rides hot putting streak to two-shot lead in Las Vegas

Na (70) coughed up a four-shot lead on the back nine (70) and tied fellow American Patrick Cantlay (68) at 23-under 261 before prevailing with a four-foot par putt at the second extra hole as Cantlay three-putted for bogey.

It was a bitter finish for Cantlay, who won his first PGA Tour event in Las Vegas in 2017 in a playoff, but had to settle for a runner-up finish the second straight year. He carded a triple-bogey after his chip just barely rolled off the back of the green, taking his four-shot lead back to just one. Then, he hit into the water on the par-5 16th and lost the lead for the first time all day with a bogey. With Na waiting to tap in for par, Cantlay just missed a 24-foot birdie putt, as it curled past the right edge and settled just behind the hole.

After returning to the 18th tee, Cantlay made bogey, allowing Na - a Las Vegas resident - to sink a short par putt and clinch the win. "Tends to do that sometimes, and when it does, if I'm hitting it halfway decent I feel like I can win".

The Abbotsford, B.C., native stuck a terrific approach shot on 15 on his way a 2-under 69, second round at the Shriners Hospitals for Children Open.

Cantlay, who also made bogey on No. 10, took advantage of his lapse.

Cantlay, who won the Las Vegas title in 2017 and finished runner-up past year, said his six-footer for par at the second playoff hole "broke a little more than I thought".

Staked to a three-shot lead to start the back nine at the TPC Summerlin, Na never imagined it would come down to that.

"Came down way too close", Na said.

Along with a two-year exemption, the 22-year-old Knight is eligible for the Asia Swing and is likely to reach the CME Globe Tour Championship next month.

The pair shared pars at the 18th to take the match in to sudden death, and Na walked in a 10-foot birdie putt on the first trip back up the 18th to match Cantlay's, before making the most of a three-putt from his opponent to claim his second victory of the 2019. And he won with a 4-foot par.

Pat Perez shot 68 to finish alone in third at 21 under.

While Cantlay had a chance to make birdie on the final hole and grab the win, his putt was just inches off the cup - sending the two into the playoff. Defending champion Bryson DeChambeau fired a 63 to head a group on 264 that also included Canadian Adam Hadwin and American Brian Stuard.
