Kevin Na beats Patrick Cantlay to play-off victory in Las Vegas

Kevin Na produced a putting screen at the Shriners Hospitals for Children Open to play-off victory on his solution.
The leader made a PGA Tour record of 558 feet of putts throughout the week in TPC Summerlin, posting a one-under 70 on the last day to combine Patrick Cantlay tied to 23 under.
Both players birdied the first extra play-off hole, before a par at the following hole was sufficient for Na to secure his PGA Tour title and watch him combine Jim Furyk as the events only winner.
Beginning two strokes back, Cantlay holed a 35-footer at the very first but missed from 5 feet to save par by nailing a 25-footer in the second since Na followed an eight-foot birdie.
Na bogeyed the eighth but got up and down in the sand to match Cantlays birdie in the par-five ninth and get to the turn three ahead, only to strike a wayward drive and a poor chip in the next on his way into a three-putt triple-bogey in the tenth.
Cantlay began his back nine but emptied a 20-footer in the 12th to fit Nas birdie from the distance, using the pair.
Both players use the driveable par-four 15th to register another birdie, before a two-shot swing at the saw Na create after finding water with his approach to the par-five.
Cantlay edged with a birdie from 40 ft but bogeyed the next after having water off the teeas Na splashed from the sand to 20 feet and holed his putt to leave the set.
The pair both posted pars in the 18th to choose the competition to a play-off, in which Na walked at a 10-footer to match Cantlays birdie at the first extra hole and then capitalised on a three-putt bogey out of Cantlay in the second to hole a four-footer for a winning par.
Pat Perez ended the week in third spot on 21 under ahead of Bryson DeChambeau and Adam Hadwin, who published 63s on Sunday, together with Webb Simpson one of three players sharing seventh place after signing off his bogey-free 68 using a 25-foot birdie.
