Patience is a virtue. A sentiment embodied by Kevin Na. After taking eight years for his PGA Tour breakthrough, the 34-year-old had to wait another seven before win No. 2. Which explains why, following a lights-out final-round 64 at the Greenbrier, Na was overcome with emotion, telling his fellow Koreans in his native language, "Thank you so much for rooting for me. This has been a difficult journey. I'm so happy that I won today. I thank my brother, SBS Corp. and you fans who had faith in me and rooted for me. I love you."

One could argue that, given his talent, Na should have more than just two trophies on tour. However, Na is proof that, despite what we see from the likes of Jordan Spieth, Justin Thomas and Dustin Johnson on an annual basis, winning is rare and really, really hard. Regular tour stops don't get as much press as major championships, but Na's display is a reminder that any given week can be a life-changing moment for those in the field.

Not that Na was hurting between Ws. The man had racked up $26 million in tour earnings before his Greenbrier victory. His bank account is about to receive some extra padding, with the West Virginia event bestowing a $1.3 million winner's check.
