Google ‘Kevin Na 16′ and you’ll get a video of PGA professional Na playing in the Valero Texas Open back in April. He was in the woods. Deep woods. Like crunching tree branches. And then Na tries to play out of the woods. His caddie looks like he’s hunting morel mushrooms. Na looks like a moron who’s about to shoot a 16 after butchering it out of the woods.

Yesterday, Na was at it again via the Justin Timberlake Shriners Hospitals for Children Open.

Posted: Oct. 1, 2011

Premise of Video: Na steps up to the tee at the Par 4 15th in Vegas. Pulls driver. Makes his normal preparations. Seems poised to put one straight down the middle.

Climax of Video: WHIFF!

Conclusion: Of course you think Na is a complete moron who can’t golf, but he’s actually tied for the lead at Timberlake’s charity tourney.

Here’s his excuse for the miss via PGATour.com:

On the teebox of the drivable par-5 15th hole, Na was in the middle of his swing when something didn’t feel right with the transfer of his weight. He pulled up, intentionally missed the ball, gathered himself and then played the shot.

“I’ll take it back; it feels decent, and my transition is what I’m always working on,” Na said. “It’s always my bad habit is I get quick. And on the way down my transition doesn’t feel right, and I try to stop, and obviously it’s impossible for me to stop. The only way for me to stop is I have to come up and go over the ball.”

So What Really Happened With That Kevin Na Whiff?

 I'm not really much of a soapbox type of guy. I don't sit here and scream about the youth movement or the belly putters; hot driver faces, greens speeds or groove length. The game of golf is a fairly simple idea when you think about it, but it is one that forces you to follow a few simple rules. Always abide by honors. Shake hands after the round. Be quiet when your competitor...

Kevin Na’s Big Swing and Miss Was Odd, Comical, and Totally Done on Purpose

Normally when a golfer senses something is a bit off as they address the ball, what they’ll usually do is step away, readjust and reassess before readdressing the ball. Which is why it was both strange, and slightly comical, to see Kevin Na make his adjustment mid-swing during his round Saturday at the Justin Timberlake Shriners Hospitals for Children, with a resulting whiff of...

Swing and a miss: Kevin Na completely whiffs on his ball
