Golf 'Fans' Out Of Bounds For Taunting Kevin Na

Kevin Na crawls around a golf course at a pace that would put the Slowskis to shame. But that's no excuse for the taunts and boos that rained down on him during Sunday's Players Championship finale.

VIDEO: Kevin Na Hits Hybrid Off Asphalt, Amazingly Finds Green

Kevin Na has been the target of everyone's jokes on Sunday. He fell apart after a strong three days, finishing his final round with a 76. It was bad, and probably cost him a lot of money. Oh, and he was heckled by an angry crowd along the way.

This, however, was awesome. Na, who's been suffering from the yips recently, hit his tee shot way right on 18. He got relief and was able to take a drop because his stance was on the cart path. So he dropped his ball on the cart path, on purpose. Why, you ask? A flat lie, of course.

Watching him stand over this, we thought a few things would happen. First, since it was a hybrid, one had to assume he would spark it. Second, the way he was hitting the ball on Sunday, one could assume he might break his club. Third, there was no way he as getting anywhere near the green.

244 yards later, Na pulled off one heck of a shot. After an up-and-down week, this was a cool way to end it.

The Players Championship: Tiger Woods Feeling Comfortable Despite Score

Tiger Woods shot a four-under 68 in the second round of The Players Championship at Sawgrass, prompting anticipation about his ability to make a run for the trophy over the weekend. But after shooting an even-par 72 on Saturday, he finds himself 10 strokes behind 54-hole leader Kevin Na.

As Woods seemingly always says after rounds, he was happy with how he played, even though it didn't manifest in a low score. "I played well today and didn't get anything out of that round," he said. "It was probably the most solid I've hit the golf ball all year actually. Even though I hit a couple off‑line, but they were just hit dead‑flush. I just got nothing out of the round."

A significant development in Woods' prolonged comeback to rejoin the golf world's elite has been his quest to get fully healthy. Following Saturday's round, he opened a window into just how long that's taken him:

Q. How long ago did you put the metal spike back in the cleats?
TIGER WOODS: I started at Quail Hollow last week.

Q. What was the change?
TIGER WOODS: My knee is finally healthy enough to take the pounding.

The Players Championship 2012 Leaderboard Update: Kevin Na Leads After 3 Rounds

A round with no bogeys has Kevin Na one up on Matt Kuchar at 12-under going into the final round at Sawgrass.

Kuchar had a one-stroke lead on Na coming to the signature 17th hole, but he struck his tee shot a bit fat and ended up splashing about five yards short of the island. He recovered with a shot that left him about eight feet from the hole for bogey, but that was enough to see him tied with Na. Na capitalized by parring the 17th and birdieing on the concluding 18th hole.

Rickie Fowler is in third three back of the lead at 9-under while Ben Curtis and Zach Johnson are tied for fourth at 7-under.

Na and Kuchar are the only two players to have posted three rounds in the 60s. We'll see if they can keep up the pace in tomorrow's final round.
