Jason Kokrak readies for his third PGA Championship and kicks off on Thursday at 7:20 a.m. ET with PGA club pro Josh Speight and Sweden's Kristoffer Broberg.
The 31-year-old is well-rested coming off a five-week break following a T29 at the QL National. That was his best finish since T6 at the RBC Heritage, where he was T2 thru 54 holes but backed up with 2-over 73. In-between, he missed three cuts and WD'd (unknown) during R2 at THE PLAYERS, 4-over thru 32 holes. The North Bay, Ontario, native is making his fifth major appearance, missing the cut at the 2013 and 2014 PGA's, MCing at the 2007 U.S. Open as an amateur, and cashing his first paycheck with T37 at this year's U.S. Open (71-70-74-74). He's 65th in FEC standings with a T2 at the NTO his only other top 10 in 22 starts. Jul 27 - 7:41 PM

Jason Kokrak authored an even-par 35-35=70 in the second round of the 116th U.S. Open to reach the midpoint on 1-over 141, currently T20 on the leaderboard.

The 31-year-old is making his second appearance and first since missing the cut in 2007, the last time the championship was held at Oakmont CC. He got here via the Powell, Ohio, Sectional, right after a missed cut at the Memorial. Like the rest of those that will actually finish on Friday, the Xavier University alum played 36 holes after not getting in any in the books on Thursday. Kokrak opened with a two-birdie three-bogey 71 on nine (of 14) fairways, 13 greens in regulation and taking 32 putts. He ate a quick lunch and came back with four birdies in R2, but erased them with a double at the first and bogeys on 16 and 18.

Jason Kokrak heads back to his old stomping grounds for an appointment with Muirfield Village Golf Club at this week's Memorial.

The Xavier University product will be teeing it up two hours from his old campus. That hasn't helped him in the past, as he's 0-for-2 here with three of his four rounds going for 76 or worse. Kokrak is the type of golfer that can go missed cut, missed cut, top 10, and no one will blink an eye. His strokes gained approach-the-green ranks 73rd on TOUR, which will be key this week on a course that requires you to not only hit the greens, but land it on the proper side as well. Gamers should consider Kokrak a very nice boom-or-bust selection in deep fantasy formats this week.

Jason Kokrak has withdrawn from this week's PLAYERS, he was 4-over-par through 32 holes at the time of the WD. No reason has been cited at the time.

Kokrak opened the week with a 1-over-par 35-38=73 on Thursday. The big blemish was a double bogey 7 on the par-5 11th hole. On that hole, he went fairway bunker to fairway bunker to greenside bunker, and still needed two more shots just to reach the green surface from there. His Friday effort was calmer, but a lone birdie did not offset the four bogeys he carded. This is likely a case of not wanting to wait out the weather delay since his missed-cut fate was sealed at that time. If an injury does pop up, we will make sure to pass along that information with an update.

Jason Kokrak plays a home game as he makes his fifth appearance in the Wells Fargo Championship in Charlotte, North Carolina.

The Charlotte resident has the length off the tee to contend at the 7,575-yard Quail Hollow Club, ranking T5 on TOUR in driving distance at 308.0 yards. That hasn't translated here however, with one top 40 (T23/2014) in four attempts and two missed cuts, including by two last year at 2-over-par 77-69=146. Kokrak's scoring average at the par-72 layout is 72.58 with five red numbers in 12 rounds. He enters 34th in the FedExCup standings with six top 25s on 16 starts, two for top 10s, most recently playing out of the final twosome on Sunday at the Heritage, one adrift, but closed in 2-over 73 for T6. The 30-year-old chased with a MC by one (72-73) the following week at Valero in his last start.

Jason Kokrak faded to a 2-over-par 37-36=73 in the final round of the RBC Heritage to wrap his fifth appearance at 4-under 280, down four places on the day and five in arrears to champion Branden Grace.

Dating back to last year's T18, Kokrak had put his last six in the par-or-better column at Harbour Town but snapped that streak with a disappointing double bogey-6 on the 72nd hole (from the fairway). Par on the last would've secured solo fourth, dropping instead into a three-way T6. The 30-year-old, looking for his first TOUR title in his 116th career start, began the final round one shy of 54-hole leader and playing competitor Luke Donald. He split 10 (of 14) fairways but managed only nine greens in regulation for his first negative number in strokes gained: tee-to-green of the week (-0.402). The Charlotte, North Carolina, resident birdied each of the three par 5s but that was it, erasing them with bogeys on holes 1, 3, and 8. He settles for his second top 10 of the season (T2, NTO) in his 15th start.
Apr 17 - 7:18 PM

Jason Kokrak twirled a 3-under-par 34-34=68 in the third round of the RBC Heritage to reach the three-quarter pole on 6-under 207, up eight on the live leaderboard to T3 and good for the 54-hole clubhouse lead. UPDATE: With play completed, Kokrak is T2, one back of 54-hole leader Luke Donald, whom he'll be paired with in the final round.

The Charlotte, North Carolina, resident began Moving Day on 3-under (T11) and three adrift of a trio of co-leaders after opening his fifth RBC in 71 and bogey-free 68. His 68 in R2 was one of only four blemish-free laps recorded this week thru 36 holes and dating back to last year's T18, has now put six straight in the par-or-better column. The 30-year-old striped eight (of 14) fairways and hit 12 greens in regulation, and at last check, leads the field in strokes gained: tee-to-green with a cumulative 8.825, including 2.884 in R3. He circled birdies on Nos. 2, 3, 5 and 15 from inside 13 feet, with a lone 3-putt bogey (from 50'1") at the par-4 eighth. Kokrak led the Northern Trust in Feb. after 36 holes, eventually finishing T2.

Jason Kokrak connected on six birdies in route to a 4-under-par 36-32=68 during the second round of the Arnold Palmer Invitational, arriving at the 36-hole mark at 6-under 138.

Kokrak is eight strokes shy of the torrid pace set by Jason Day, but he's surely pleased with his second-round effort. In particular, it was the flat stick doing most of the damage. Kokrak splashed in five putts from outside eight feet, two of those coming from outside 20 feet. The lone putting blemish came at the par-5 fourth hole where he failed on a 5'4" birdie attempt. Kokrak entered the week as a course horse and appears to be on his way toward a third straight top 10 at Bay Hill.
Mar 18 - 2:08 PM

Jason Kokrak checks into the Bay Hill Club and Lodge in advance of his fourth Arnold Palmer Invitational.

Kokrak was T3 thru 54 holes in each of the last two editions, but ended up T6/2015 and solo fourth in 2014 after final rounds of 72 and 73, respectively. His other appearance in 2012 ended in a missed cut (77-75). The 30-year-old's season results are a mixed bag. He tied a career best with T2 three starts ago at the Northern Trust -- where he led after 36 holes -- but chased with two straight MCs. Overall, the Charlotte, North Carolina, resident is 6-for-12 in 2015-16 with four top 25s and the one top 10. He ranks 65th on TOUR in strokes gained: tee-to-green, 139th in strokes gained: putting, and 81st in par-5 scoring average (4.63).

Jason Kokrak crafted a 3-under-par 32-36=68 in today's final round of the Northern Trust Open to conclude his fifth appearance at 14-under 270, good for a two-way T2 with Adam Scott, one shy of champion Bubba Watson.

Chasing his first title in his 110th pro start, Kokrak was in the final threesome with 54-hole leader Watson and one adrift. He missed eagle at the par-5 first from 7'1", settling for a two-putt birdie but then dropped an unlikely birdie at the second from 42'1". After four pars, the 30-year-old connected again from distance at the par-4 seventh (from 32'7") to co-lead on 14-under. Six pars later, he added his fourth circle from 4'5" at the par-4 13th and he went to the 14th tee with a two-shot cushion. Kokrak dropped one at 15 (failed scramble) and curved in a par from 6'1" on 16 for a sand save but was unable to birdie either of his final two and Watson birdied 16 and 17 to swipe the win. His T2 matches a career mark (2012 Frys.com) and supplants his previous-best T34 in his 2012 tourney debut.
Feb 21 - 7:36 PM

Overnight leader Jason Kokrak tacked on a 1-under-par 36-34=70 on day three of the Northern Trust Open for a 54-hole total of 11-under 202, down one spot on the leaderboard and into a three-way T2.

After opening his fifth Northern Trust in 68-64, Kokrak held a one-shot lead over playing partners Chez Reavie and by two over Dustin Johnson. Also trailing by two and one group ahead of the final threesome were Troy Merritt and Bubba Watson. For the 30-year-old, it was his first 36-hole lead/co-lead in his 110th career start and for the most part, he kept it together outpacing three bogeys with four birdies to trail 54-hole leader Watson by one, who shot 67. Thru 54 holes, he's T1 in greens in regulation (43/54), but 35th in putts per GIR, including a pedestrian 1.857 mark in R3. He had a birdie chance from 10'11" at the par-4 18th to tie Watson, but lipped out. Kokrak is winless on TOUR with a career-best T2 at the 2012 Frys.com Open.
Feb 20 - 6:12 PM

Jason Kokrak put on a ball-striking clinic in route to a 7-under-par 33-31=64 to reach 10-under 132 on the week, grabbing the 36-hole clubhouse lead at this week's Northern Trust Open.

Kokrak was on point today with his irons and it all started on the first hole. He landed his second shot inside 20 feet, missing the eagle-putt but tapping in for birdie. He would proceed to land all three par 5s in two, all inside 45 feet, playing them at 3-under. It wasn't just on par 5s, as he also dropped his par-3 14th tee shot to eight inches. He followed it up on the par-4 15th by landing his approach shot 2'4" away from the cup. Both easy birdies. Kokrak walked off the 18th green having gained 6.317 strokes:tee-to-green. This goes in the books as the low round of the day and will be the first time in his PGA TOUR career that Kokrak will sit on a 36-hole lead.
Feb 19 - 7:06 PM

Jason Kokrak contests his third Farmers Insurance Open and first since 2013.

Kokrak missed the cut in his 2012 FIO debut (74-73) and withdrew after one round in 2013 following a 2-over 74 on Torrey Pines South. He's set to go off Torrey South at 9:00 a.m. PST on Thursday in the first threesome off No. 1 tee. The 30-year-old missed the cut by four at last week's CareerBuilder (70-68-73), his second straight early exit following a pair of top-20 finishes in November. Thru six events in 2015-16 he ranks 112th on TOUR in scoring average (71.276) and 109th in both strokes gained stats at -.076.

Jan 27 - 2:59 PM

Jason Kokrak has made the FedExCup Playoffs in each of his four seasons finishing 100th in the FEC standings last season.

Kokrak played five events in the fall portion of the wraparound schedule making three cuts and a season-best T12 at the Sanderson Farms where he closed in 8-under 64. He missed the cut by six in his latest start at The RSM Classic on rounds of 71-75. The 30-year-old's stats show 40th in total driving but 199th in greens in regulation and 142nd in strokes gained: putting. His career best is T2 (Frys.com Open) in the third-to-last start of his 2012 rookie season.

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.
