2023 Masters: Kevin Na withdraws after completing nine holes

AUGUSTA, Ga. —The field at the 87th Masters is down to 87 players as Kevin Na withdrew from the tournament during Thursday’s opening round.

Na, 39, completed nine holes at Augusta National in 4-over 40 before pulling out of the tournament and citing illness.

Na was making his 12th career start at the Masters. He is one of 18 LIV golfers in the field this year. Na has never finished in the top 10 at the Masters, but had recorded three straight top-15 finishes —T-13 in 2020, T-12 in 2021 and T-14 in 2022.

Since leaving the PGA Tour last June to join LIV, Na has plummeted to 96th in the Official World Golf Ranking. He likely will have to win or have a top finish in one of the other majors, if he qualifies, to earn an invitation back to the Masters next year.
