Reports: Na withdraws from tourney to join expectant wife
Field Level Mediaon
Kevin Na, ranked 55th in the FedEx Cup standings, withdrew Monday from the upcoming BMW Championship to be with his expectant wife, according to Golfweek and Golf Channel.
Julianne Na is pregnant with their second child at the family home in Las Vegas.
By withdrawing, Na won't be eligible to play in next week's Tour Championship in Atlanta.
In July, Na withdrew from the Open Championship at Royal Portrush in Northern Ireland due to a neck injury. He missed the cut at the U.S. Open and finished sixth at the Korea Open before the neck injury forced him out of the inaugural 3M Open in early July.
On Sunday, he shot a 9-over-par 80 at the Northern Trust to finish 4 over for the tournament.
In May, Na claimed nearly $1.3 million for his victory at the Charles Schwab Challenge in Fort Worth, Texas. He ranks 43rd on the 2019 PGA Tour money list with more than $2.2 million.
The BMW Championship, which will be played this week at Medinah Course No. 3 in Medinah, Ill., is a no-cut event that guarantees a payday for each player, from $1.665 million to the winner to $18,500 to the last-place finisher. The top 30 finishers qualify for the Tour Championship.
