Jason Kokrak and Kevin Na storm home to win the QBE Shootout.

In a fairy tale finish for any golfer, Kokrak and Na birdie 12 of their last 13 holes to win the QBE Shootout by one stroke over Sam Burns and Billy Horschel who birdied 11 out of their last 13 holes.

Kokrak and Na had to duel it out with Horschel and Burns over the final 13 holes. Both their biride streak started on the 6th hole and were going shot for shot. The only hole that Horschel and Burns didn’t birdie which Kokrak and Na did was the 7th hole or both teams could have had a carbon copy score.

For both teams it was an amazing run of birdies. For Kokrak and Na they birdied every hole from the 6th till the 14th. They made par on the 15th and then birdied the last 3 holes to claim victory.

Both teams got off to a slow start on Sunday. Burns and Horschel birdied their first hole while Kokrak and Na birdied their 3rd hole. Both then bogeyed their 5th hole before they started their birdie streak.

“We got off to a poor start,” Na said. “We kept telling ourselves there are plenty of birdie holes out there. I started making some birdies and we got hot.”

Kokrak and Na share a swing coach in Drew Steckel and often are playing practice rounds together.
