Las Vegas, Nevada (May 24, 2012)–Many of us have nightmares about our golf games. Not so much for PGA Tour pros. But over the last 10 days maybe Las Vegas Golf Region resident and 2011 Justin Timberlake Shriners Hospitals for Children Open champion Kevin Na had a few bad dreams. He admittedly focused every part of his practice time since the PLAYERS Championship on getting rid of his waggles. And so far, so good at the Crowne Plaza Invitational.

"It’s the only thought I had," he said. "… I need to change this. This is all I’m going to do. This is all I’m going to think about and I’m going to get it done. I’m actually surprised how quickly I’m doing this.
"I’m one of those guys, if I’m going to fix it, I’m going to do it right now. I’m not going to go little by little. I’m going to change the whole thing." Click now to read the entire article that was re-tweeted by @thekevinna himself.
Na became the first resident of Las Vegas to win the hometown PGA Tour event when he won the JT Shriners in 2011. But Na has also become known for taking a 16 on a hole and the recent slow play waggles that besieged him at the PLAYERS. Now he hopes people will know him just because he is a helluva player.
