While Patrick Cantlay was the one who held up the hardware at East Lake, Kevin Na tied Jon Rahm for the lowest score, 14 under, at the Tour Championship. 

And in case Na’s performance – which included 57 straight bogey-free holes in Atlanta this week – gets overlooked by U.S. Ryder Cup captain Steve Stricker, he’ll take matters into his own hands. 

“I’m definitely going to probably text Captain Stricker, Na said following his final Tour Championship round. “I haven’t texted him but I’m going to text him and see what he thinks. I feel like I should be a big consideration for a [captain’s] pick.”


Full-field scores from the Tour Championship


Na finished third behind Cantlay and Rahm at the Tour Championship but with the staggard scoring, Na made up the most ground in the 30-player field starting at 2 under, where Rahm started at 6 under and Cantlay at 10 under. 

But while the 37-year-old was rising up the leaderboard, he had a certain goal, which he said is second on his career dreams list behind a major championship win, in the back of his mind. 

“I was trying to win that secret leaderboard, where everybody started from even par, to get Captain Stricker’s attention, so I could get a captain’s pick.”

If this was pre-2019, Na would have headed to a playoff with Rahm.  Last year, Xander Schauffele was runner-up to Dustin Johnson but would have won the Tour Championship outright by three strokes if not for the staggered-start format. The OGWR still credited Schauffele with an official Tour victory. 

However, trophy or not, Na’s recent performances may have given him a chance to clinch one of the remaining captain’s picks for Team USA

“Look, I did the best I could,” he said. “I have two runner-up finishes in the last six starts, another Top-10 at a playoff event and maybe win or second here. So I mean, from where I started to finish third in the FedExCup, eight shots back, I think I’m looking strong for a pick.”
