Na - a Seoul native who now calls Las Vegas home - fired a 1-under 70 on Sunday, rallying back after a rough back nine to force a playoff with Patrick Cantlay.

It was a wild finish at the TPC Summerlin made possible mainly by Na's mistakes. He seemed to be in control of the tournament before making a stunning triple bogey at the par-four tenth hole and letting the contenders back into the tournament.

Playing alongside Phil Mickelson at TPC Summerlin, Na eagled the par-5 13th and 16th holes and added birdies on the par-3 17th and par-4 18th to match Lucas Glover, 2017 victor Patrick Cantlay and Brian Stuard at 12-under 130.

His one-under par 70 put him level on 23-under 261 with Cantlay, who closed with a 68, through 72 holes.

Cantlay lost his late lead with a tee shot in the water on the 17th, and he lost the playoff by missing a par putt from just under 6 feet. Needing a par to keep the pressure on Na, Cantlay missed low, three-putting for bogey. "Tends to do that sometimes, and when it does, if I'm hitting it halfway decent I feel like I can win".

Kevin Na holds up the trophy after winning the Shriners Hospitals for Children Open golf tournament on the second playoff hole in Las Vegas.

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. As much as he took advantage of Na's blunders, Cantlay made some of his own.

The sophomore hurt the same knee in college, added Rapoport . "We forced some plays, some three-and-outs early on. At least one thing is certain - things will still go running back-by-committee for the Eagles' offense.

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

"Came down way too close", Na said.

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

"I hit a great putt", he said.

Pat Perez ended the week in third spot on 21 under ahead of Bryson DeChambeau and Adam Hadwin, who posted matching 63s on Sunday, with Webb Simpson one of three players sharing seventh spot after signing off his bogey-free 68 with a 25-foot birdie. He had led by as many as four strokes on Sunday but triple-bogeyed the par-4 10th, after a duck-hook drive and a pair of chips that ran long.

That all changed this week as she earned a two-year exemption and will play in the CME Globe Tour Championship in November.
