Through two weeks of the 2015-16 PGA Tour season, no one has played as well as Kevin Na. And yet, through two weeks, no one on tour is as frustrated as Kevin Na.

For a second consecutive event, Na came up painfully short of winning his second PGA Tour title. On Sunday, at the site of his lone tour win four years ago, it looked like it was going to be his time again -- especially after this long birdie putt on No. 16 elicited this fiery reaction:
