Jason Kokrak spun a bogey-free 8-under-par 32-32=64 in today's final round of the Sanderson Farms Championship to conclude his third appearance at 13-under 275, up 39 spots on the leaderboard and good for a three-way tie for 12th.
After opening in 69-71, Kokrak sat at T53 thru 36 holes and just one inside the cut line. He played his last two rounds blemish-free, including today's effort, which went for the low round in the finale. Although bogey-free in the third round, he mustered a single birdie on 16 greens in regulation and began his final frame at T51. The 30-year-old, who went off the 10th tee, went on to circle six birdies and an eagle from a mere 5'1" at the 612-yard par-5 fifth. Three of his conversions dropped from outside of 20 feet, highlighted by a 29'9" roll at the par-3 10th. In total, Kokrak posted a 3.465 mark in strokes gained: putting in his final frame, erasing from memory his dismal -1.971 in the same category from round three, and back-dooring the top-15 finish.

Jason Kokrak was disqualified from the Open after the conclusion of his second round.

Kokrak is listed for a 2-over-par 36-38=74 today. He opened with 77 so he reached the break in 7-over 151 and wasn't going to make the cut, anyway. Given the timing of the disqualification, he likely signed an incorrect scorecard, but we will update you if an explanation is released. UPDATE: Indeed, Kokrak signed an incorrect scorecard. Details of what happened are unknown. This is Kokrak's first DQ in 101 PGA TOUR starts. This extends his drought of having just one top-45 finish in his last 13 starts (T18, Quicken Loans).

Jason Kokrak descends upon Norton, Massachusetts, for his third playing of the Deutsche Bank Championship at TPC Boston (par 71).

At No. 100 in the FedExCup standings, Kokrak is the new bubble boy entering the second leg of the Playoffs. With only the top 70 advancing to the BMW Championship at Conway Farms on Sept. 17-20, he's got work to do. After finishing T73 in his Deutsche Bank debut in 2013, Kokrak finished 8-under-par (T16) last year on rounds of 68-72-70-66. The 30-year-old is 16-for-27 on the season with two top 10s (back-to-back), but those came in March. He's played but three events in the last seven weeks finishing T18 (QL National), WD during the second round at Wyndham, and MC by two last week at The Barclays.

Jason Kokrak recorded a 4-over-par 38-36=74 in today's opening round of The Barclays.

If he was feeling better after the illness that forced him to withdraw during the second round of last week's Wyndham, it wasn't reflective today. Well, let's put it this way, he returned as if he'd been out for weeks, not days. Kokrak striped 10 (of 14) fairways and hit 14 greens in regulation but squared six bogeys, five as a result of a whiff inside nine feet. He missed six in all inside that range. He converted only two birdies, and one of those needed to fall from 24'2" at the par-3 11th hole. At last check, and not surprisingly, the 30-year-old ranked second-to-last in the 120-man field in strokes gained: putting with a clip of -3.759.

Jason Kokrak withdrew from the Wyndham Championship during his second round due to an illness.

He concluded nine holes before walking in. Kokrak played his last three in 5-over-par with two double bogeys. He was 4-over on the day and 3-over through 27 holes. This is his second mid-tournament WD in 98 PGA TOUR starts. He's 79th in the FedExCup standings with two top 10s and another six top 25s, so the 30-year-old is headed to his third consecutive Playoffs.

Jason Kokrak has withdrawn from this week's Barracuda Championship.

A T18 at the Quicken Loans National was his eighth top 20 of 2014-15. Comfortably positioned at 77th in the FedExCup standings, he can take a breath in advance of the Playoffs where he'll be making his third consecutive appearance. All told, it's been a quiet but steady season for the long hitter. Remember that he missed three months at this time a year ago due to having surgery for a sports hernia, but Kokrak hasn't missed a beat since. If there's a reason to be critical, it's that he's winless in 97 PGA TOUR starts as a professional.

Jason Kokrak descends upon the Robert Trent Jones Golf Club for this week's playing of the Quicken Loans National and enters the tournament ranked 80th in the FedExCup standings.

Kokrak is 15-for-24 on the season with seven top-25 finishes, two for top 10s, both coming on the Florida Swing in March. After a T11 at the Valero Texas Open at the end of March, he was rolling. However, in his 10 starts since the VTO, he's missed five cuts and finished inside the top 45 once (T18, RBC Heritage). In 2013 at Congressional CC, Kokrak was T4 after 36 holes and T5 after 54, eventually finishing T3 in his only other appearance at the Quicken Loans Nat'l.

Jason Kokrak makes his second career visit to the Travelers Championship and enters the week slotted 74th in the FedExCup standings.

At first glance, Kokrak is making an interesting start this week at the Travelers as he's only played here once prior, a T81/MDF in 2012. However, Kokrak is still looking for his first career PGA TOUR win (94 starts), and with the majority of the world's best taking this week off, it makes sense that he added this tournament. Surely he's aware that six of the last nine winners of the Travelers Championship (17 total) have been first-time TOUR champions, including four straight between 2010-13. Whether the 30-year-old can seize the opportunity is another story. He had a stellar March, recording both of his top 10s (T7, Valspar Championship and T6, Arnold Palmer Invitational). He closed out the banner month with a T11 at the wind-swept Valero Texas Open. Two starts later, he added a T18 at the RBC Heritage, his seventh top 25 on 16 starts on the season up to that point. But Kokrak's gone missing since, with early departures in four of his last five events.

Jason Kokrak has elected not to compete at this week's AT&T Byron Nelson Championship.

He could use the break after missing cuts in each of the last three weeks. The slump has extended his all-or-nothing run of top 20s or MCs to nine consecutive starts. At 64th in the FedExCup standings, Kokrak doesn't have to worry about grinding for his playing privileges for 2015-16.
May 25 - 12:12 PM

Jason Kokrak carded a 3-under-par 36-33=69 in his opening round of THE PLAYERS, coming to rest two strokes adrift of the clubhouse tri-leaders.

Before you get excited, we've seen this song and dance from him before. In his first two appearances at TPC Sawgrass, he's opened with a red number only to miss the cut with respective rounds of 76 and 80. Today, he went 5-for-12 in scoring chances with five birdies, all from inside 10 feet. Kokrak is rest since he hasn't played since a T18 at Harbour Town three weeks ago.
May 7 - 5:51 PM

Jason Kokrak is in the published field at this week's PLAYERS in Ponte Vedra Beach, Florida.

Kokrak has been a fairly hot fantasy ticket of late with four top-20 finishes in his last five starts including top 10s at the Valspar Championship and the Arnold Palmer Invitational. May is his birthday month (turns 30 on the 22nd), but he's 0-for-2 at TPC Sawgrass and has carded second-round scores of 80 and 76 in the last two editions. His is a classic example of determining which is more important, recent form, or course form.
May 5 - 10:52 PM

Jason Kokrak battled for a 1-under-par 35-36=71 in the third round of the Valero Texas Open and is tied for the clubhouse lead at 2-under 214.

Kokrak's three birdies outpaced his two bogeys at TPC San Antonio, with his first birdie of the day on the par-5 second from 19'5" easily the longest. He's on a serious roll of late, entering off a T7-T6 run at the Valspar Championship and the Arnold Palmer Invitational. It's certainly not out of the question that he will wrangle his first PGA TOUR win, but a top five or 10 certainly seem to be in the cards.
Mar 28 - 5:15 PM

Jason Kokrak was fortunate to sign for a 1-under-par 37-34=71 following his second round of the Valero Texas Open.

Golf isn't just about holing eagles and birdies. Sometimes it's about survival. This week's stop at TPC San Antonio reminded us of that on Thursday, but Kokrak's putter assumed the role today. He hit 11 greens in regulation and converted four birdies, three of which on par 5s, but he connected on three par saves from outside 10 feet. The longest traveled 22 feet at the par-4 12th, his third hole of the walk. At last check, Kokrak's strokes gained: putting sat at just 0.667, but that was due to six whiffs inside 10 feet, three of which were for birdie. At the end of the day, lengthy par saves can have a stronger positive influence than a series of shorter misses for birdie. This isn't his first rodeo, so he'll be motivated to parlay today's fortune on the weekend.
Mar 27 - 7:23 PM

Jason Kokrak could only muster an even-par 36-36=72 in the final round of the Arnold Palmer Invitational and ends the tournament at 13-under 275.

The good news is, he cracked the top 10 at Bay Hill. He broke the monotony of 16 pars with just one birdie and one bogey in the finale. The birdie was a 9'5" effort on the par-5 sixth hole. Korak remains winless on the PGA TOUR, and will have to count this as a missed opportunities.
Mar 22 - 5:49 PM

Jason Kokrak blitzed Bay Hill Club and Lodge for a bogey-free 7-under-par 32-33=65 in the third round of the Arnold Palmer Invitational.

Kokrak takes over the clubhouse lead at 13-under 203. His round featured seven birdies, three of which fell from longer than 11 feet. Among the loudest highlights were a birdie from off the green on the par-4 11th hole and a 26'10" birdie on the par-5 16th after nearly blowing a scoring opportunity on the easy par 5. He split 11 of 14 fairways and landed 14 GIR on what proved to be a tidy round of ball-striking. He gained well over three strokes tee-to-green, while also picking up well over a stroke with the flat stick. He has never before hoisted the hardware on the PGA TOUR, but has an excellent opportunity to do so in 18 holes.
