A birdie at the 72nd hole and final round 65 delivered a one shot victory for American Kevin Na in Hawaii over Chris Kirk and Joaquin Niemann. Here is what the now five-time PGA Tour winner had in the bag.

- Players like Na sticking with equipment that clearly works for them is not unusual on the PGA Tour. However, the 37-year-old opting for a driver originally released in 2017 is slightly rare, with players typically updating drivers more frequently than other clubs. Na will surely have begun his testing of Callaway’s new Epic range of woods announced last Friday, but it would seem hard to wrestle a club he trusts that helped him to his fourth win in four straight PGA Tour seasons.
An extremely streaky player, particularly with the putter, Na ranked sixth in Putts per GIR for the week at Waialae. The Korean born American uses one of Odyssey’s premium Toulon milled putters, which is fitted, like Bryson DeChambeau’s flatstick, with an extremely stiff graphite shaft.
Na’s victory secures Titleist’s Pro V1 range of golf balls its fourth straight PGA Tour win, and a perfect two for two in 2021, with all members of the top-three in Hawaii using the brand’s golf balls, including Niemann in his second consecutive runner-up finish.
