Just play better: Kevin Na targets Ryder Cup spot

Five PGA titles but no Ryder or Presidents Cup spot yet for Na or Horschel

Golf has its label of best to have never won a major, and most career earnings without ever having won a tournament. Perhaps the next one will be most PGA Tour wins without having played in either a Ryder Cup or Presidents Cup.

Kevin Na and Billy Horschel would be on that list, each with five individual PGA Tour titles.

The next opportunity for them would be the Presidents Cup this year at Quail Hollow Club in North Carolina, with Davis Love III as the captain.

Na was asked what it would take to finally make a team.


“Well, I won twice in 2019 (Colonial, Las Vegas) and I didn’t qualify, so I guess the answer was three,” he said. “I’ve been right there for a few chances for a captain’s pick and I haven’t got it. The answer is just pay better. If you’re automatically qualified, you don’t have to depend on a captain’s pick, then there’s no issue. So I just need to play a little better.”
