Over the last few years, Titleist Brand Ambassador Kevin Na, equipped with his Scotty Cameron Studio Select Newport Tour model putter and Pro V1x golf ball, has consistently proven himself as one of the best putters on the PGA Tour.He is ranked in the top 10 in many of the PGA Tour's putting statistics, including the new Strokes Gained stat, which shows how many strokes are gained or lost due to putting over the course of the season. Kevin is also currently No. 2 in Total One-Putts (578), One-Putts Per Round (8.03) and One-Putt Percentage (44.6%), behind only Titleist Brand Ambassador Steve Stricker in each category. Team Titleist caught up with Kevin earlier this week at The Barclays to talk about his putting prowess, which he credits to keeping a consistent tempo.Check it out in the above video.
