Kevin Na excelling in return to Texas

FORTH WORTH -- The last time Kevin Na played a round of golf in Texas he had the distinction of making a 16 on the par-4 ninth hole at the AT&T Oaks Course at the Valero Texas Open.

So infamous was Na’s venture through the woods that the Youtube video has been viewed nearly 767,000 times.

In his return to Texas at the Crowne Plaza Invitational at Colonial, Na finds himself tied for 10th in the second round after firing a 65 on Friday. Na closed with birdies on Nos. 17 and 18 after shooting a 32 on the front.

It’s not as if the 16 has kept Na down. While he missed the cut last week at The Players Championship, he tied for ninth and placed fifth in back-to-back events after leaving San Antonio.
