PLAYERS: Kevin Na
Kevin Na took time out from playing slow and being heckled and booed during his meltdown on Sunday to hit an amazing approach shot on the 18th hole. Na, whose prior shot was so badly placed that he decided to drop on the golf cart, calmly took his shot and put the ball on the green. The shot was so amazing that an announcer couldn’t contain himself from dropping a s-bomb. H/T SBNation
