Kevin Na plays speed golf on PGA Tour, finishes round in two hours
Kevin Na might be the slowest player on the PGA Tour, but he decided to aim for a speed record Sunday in the final round of the Tour Championship and jogged down fairways to finish 18 holes in just under two hours.

Na started the day in last place and played alone after Jason Day withdrew from the tournament with a back problem, leaving an odd amount of players. Instead of grinding through a round in the hopes of catching 28th place Jimmy Walker (five strokes ahead), Na turned the game into speed golf and somehow managed to shoot even par.
He carded a 3-over 38 on the front nine with an ugly triple-bogey at the eighth hole, but began running from shot to shot down the stretch and finished his round with four consecutive birdies. Caddie Kenny Harms probably deserves a raise for keeping up while carrying Na’s bag. Their final time: 18 holes in 1 hour and 59 minutes.
Watch out, Usain Bolt
