FORT WORTH, Texas — Kevin Na earned $1.314 million after winning his third PGA Tour title Sunday. Then he decided to spread the wealth.
In addition to his cash and a trophy, the South Korean-born American won a restored 1973 Dodge Challenger, which he immediately gifted to his caddie, Kenny Harms.
After Na dropped in a birdie putt on the final hole, he embraced Harms and pointed toward the car.
“Right there. That’s your car,” Na said.

After speaking on-air with CBS reporter Peter Kostis, Na confirmed the gift, Golf.com reported.
“By the way, that car is Kenny Harms’ baby!” Na said. “I’m giving it to Kenny.
“He and I have an 11-year relationship,” Na told Kostis. “We are like brothers, and I’m more than happy to give it to him.”
Na worked his way into contention with a second-round 62, one shot off the Colonial Country Club course record, the Fort Worth Star-Telegram reported. He ended Sunday’s round with a 66 to win the tournament by four shots.
Winning the trophy was enough for Na.
"He knows I was thinking about (the car)," Na told reporters. "I mean, looks like a beautiful car, but little did I know how much that car was worth."
Na then tapped the winner’s trophy, ESPN reported.
"I'm more than happy to give it to him," Na said. "I got something cooler right here."
