LAS VEGAS (AP) — Kevin Na won the Justin Timberlake Shriners Hospitals for Children Open on Sunday for his first PGA Tour title, birdieing Nos. 15-17 to pull away for a two-stroke victory over Nick Watney.

Na closed with a 6-under 65 for a 23-under 261 total at TPC Summlerin in the Fall Series opener. His family moved from South Korea to the United States when he was eight and he started playing golf a year later.

Watney, a two-time winner this year, shot a 67.

Tommy Gainey and Paul Goydos had 66s to tie for third at 18 under.
