LAS VEGAS -

Kevin Na won the Justin Timberlake Shriners Hospitals for Children Open on Sunday for his first PGA Tour title, collecting birdies on Nos. 15 through 17 to pull away for a two-stroke victory over Nick Watney.

Na closed with a 6-under 65 for a 23-under 261 total at TPC Summlerin in the Fall Series opener. His family moved from South Korea to the United States when he was 8 years old and he started playing golf a year later.

Watney, a two-time winner this year, shot a 67.

Tommy Gainey and Paul Goydos had 5-under 66 totals to tie for third at 18 under.

CHAMPIONS TOUR: Kenny Perry won the SAS Championship for his first Champions Tour title, making a 30-foot eagle putt on the par-5 17th en route to a 2-under 70 and a one-stroke victory over Jeff Sluman and John Huston.

Perry won a day after his sister, Kay Perry, died after a long fight with breast cancer.

Perry, 51, a 14-time winner on the PGA Tour winner, had an 11-under 205 total.

PGA EUROPEAN: Northern Ireland's Michael Hoey held off countryman Rory McIlroy to win the Dunhill Links Championship by two shots at St. Andrews.

Hoey, ranked No. 271 in the world, lost his three-shot overnight lead early in his final round but regrouped to shoot 4-under 68. His 22-under total broke the tournament record by one shot.
