What did ‘So Hi’ on Kevin Na’s Greenbrier hat mean?

Kevin Na won the 2018 A Military Tribute at The Greenbrier for his second-career PGA Tour win and his first title on the big tour since 2011 in his adopted home of Las Vegas.

Na has been in Sin City for years, making his way there in due time after he moved from South Korea to the United States with his parents when he was 8 years old.

Na won at The Greenbrier as a partial equipment free agent, so he wasn't wearing Titleist on his headwear. Instead, he was wearing a visor or hat with 'So Hi' on it. No, Kevin Na wasn't saying hi to anyone out there. He wasn't relaying some kind of sarcastic message.

The 'So Hi' on Kevin Na's hat was a nickname or abbreviation for Southern Highlands, Na's home club in Las Vegas. He lives in that neighborhood in Vegas as well, with his wife and his daughter Sophia.

Kevin Na is a fairly private person. He doesn't reveal his wife's name on TV, in interviews or on social media. He doesn't talk about his personal affairs much. He just rakes in money on the PGA Tour. But, with his hat at The Greenbrier, he was making the rare person reveal.
