Na giving chase

PACIFIC PALISADES, Calif. – Kevin Na has gained some ground on Fred Couples midway through the front nine in the third round of the Northern Trust Open.

The 27-year-old Na made three birdies in his first five holes to close the gap to one. He just missed the green at the par-3 sixth hole and made his first bogey, but Na has still pulled into a tie for second with Aaron Baddeley, John Senden and Trevor Immelman.

Na is looking for his first PGA TOUR victory after three runner-up finishes, most recently at last year’s Arnold Palmer Invitational presented by MasterCard. He two-putted the first hole from 34 feet for his first birdie, then made putts of 5 feet and 12 inches after a pinpoint approach at the fifth hole.
