Na follows win with solid 2-under 69

Fresh off his first PGA TOUR win last week in Las Vegas, Kevin Na was hoping to carry the momentum to this week's Open.

Through the first 10 holes, things looked good. He had six birdies -- including four straight at one point -- and was 4 under just after making the turn.

"I was playing awesome," Na said about those first 10 holes.

But he stumbled on his second nine holes, with three bogeys before he birdied his final hole of the day. The wild day -- seven birdies, six pars, five bogeys -- ended with a 2-under 69 that leaves him in good shape going into Friday's second round.

"Oh, wow, that was a crazy round I had today," said Na, who started his round off the 10th tee. "I was hoping for ... just a low-key round, a few birdies here and there and not many bogeys, and man, it was a roller coaster for me today."

The low point came when he bogeyed his 13th hole of the day, the par-4 fourth, when he missed a par putt from inside three feet. He followed with two more bogeys in his next four holes.

"I hit a good putt," Na said. "I felt like I was a little rushed, and I hit a good putt, and it kind of wobbled on me and horseshoed, and that really threw me off."
