Kevin Na Gets Angry About Being Put On The Clock at Colonial

During the second round of the Crowne Plaza Invitational at Colonial, Kevin Na and his fellow group competitors - John Huh and Aaron Baddeley - were put on the clock by an official for slow play. Na would immediately make three bogies before finishing the round with two birdies.

Needless to say, Na was less than pleased with the decision."We were in position all day. We were waiting the first few holes. I'm constantly looking where we are in position. Off the sixth tee we were in perfect position, off the seventh tee we were doing fine, we were in perfect position. We struggled a little bit on eighth, the par-3, as a group because we had long shots and long putts coming in and we stand on nine and we get off the tee and they are telling us we are on the clock. I get on nine green and I look down 10 fairway and they are on the green. We have an 11-minute interval and we are in position. After I putted on the hole I called them over and said, 'Look, we're in position, we shouldn't be on the clock.' That's all."

Na was then asked if he felt he was being singled out by Rules Officials due to his slow-play reputation.

"No comment. No comment".

Na continued:

"I probably hit it in 10 seconds on 10. The flag was even down the 10th, the flag fell over and I hit it.

"Aaron agreed with me. We were in position. We shouldn't be on the clock. We did have a bad hole. We might have been a couple minutes behind. All they have to do is say. 'Hey bud you were doing fine and it looks like you had one bad hole, we'll give you a hole to catch up, make sure you don't lose that group in front of you.' There is plenty of that out here on tour but it just wasn't the case today and I was a little upset. Walking off 10, Aaron and I were talking and Aaron totally agreed with what I had to say. None of us were slow. But some times there are windy conditions and you can have bad holes but not be out of position where we should have been on the clock."
