Na Makes Masters History – But Not the Good Kind
Kevin Na had a history making day on Thursday at The Masters – but not the good kind of history.
Thats because Na become the only player in Masters history (recorded history) to hit every green in regulation and shoot an over par round.
Na shot a first round 73 almost solely because he had 39 putts in the round.
The good news is, Na is the first player since 2009 to hit all 18 greens in regulation, so at least he has that going for him.
Na’s Putting Struggles
Na’s putting struggles started right off the get go.
Na three-putted the par five second hole, then three-putted two other holes for bogey, and made his only birdie on the 15th hole, courtesy of a two-putt.
Amazingly, he had zero one-putts in the round.
