Greenbrier Classic: Kevin Na wins first tournament in seven years

Bubba Watson is only three behind as he chases a fourth win of the year

The win ended a seven-year drought for the 34-year-old Na, who won the Shriners Open in Las Vegas in 2011 and despite some close calls had not taken home a trophy since.

"I guess this whole thing's new to me because I've never had a lead going into the last day", Varner said.

"It was nice to have a big cushion where I could enjoy the moment walking off the 18th hole, say hi to my loved ones on camera. I've been close so many years and failed so many times", said Na, who turned pro at age 17. Na has four top-10 finishes this year on the PGA Tour, including a second-place finish at the Genesis Open in February and a fourth-place finish at the Forth Worth Invitational in May.

Watson rebounded to birdie the next two holes and matched the low round of the day, moving within three shots of the leaders. The only blemish on his card was a bogey on the par-4 11th after driving into the rough.

Na finished at 19-under 261 and picked up the $1.31 million winner's paycheck as he improved 40 spots to No. 18 in the FedEx Cup standings. "The first day the putter felt bad, and (then) it just clicked. Every time I got over the ball it felt great, and everything felt like it was going in". He cried during a TV interview after the round as he relayed a message to fans in Korean.

Snedeker recorded eight birdies and two bogeys on his climb up the leaderboard and was encouraged about his play 10 days before the beginning of the season's third major tournament, the Open Championship at Carnoustie in Scotland. Zander Lombard of South Africa and Andy Sullivan of England earned the other two spots.

Mickelson's final-round tee time is 10:25 a.m.

On Sunday's gaffe, Mickelson said he "wasn't really thinking". Three straight birdies from Nos.

Kim finished at 31-under par.

Kim had tied another Sorenstam record Saturday, when she was 24 under through 54 holes.

Na shot a final-round 6-under 64, highlighted by five birdies on his first nine holes. Bradley's putt lipped out and still rolled 7 feet past the hole, leading to a double-bogey. He would go on to shoot a 66 and finds himself at 14 under. In the playoff, Knox hit wedge from 131 yards to almost the same spot on the 18th green, and his long birdie putt curled left to right and into the cup.
