Jason Kokrak ended a nearly three-month hiatus from competition with a 7-over-par 40-38=78 in his opening round of the PGA Championship.
He admitted that he's not 100 percent since having surgery for a sports hernia. This is his first action since missing the cut at THE PLAYERS in early May. Kokrak split eight (of 14) fairways but round only eight greens in regulation at Valhalla today. He buried two birdies, including a 21-footer at the par-3 eighth, but squared six bogeys and a triple (at the par-4 second hole). Aug 7 - 3:23 PM

Jason Kokrak fully intends to return to competition at next week's PGA Championship, Rotoworld has learned in an email from Kevin Canning of The Legacy Agency, Kokrak's management firm.

"Jason is playing next week," Canning wrote on Tuesday. "First week back. He hasn't walked 18 holes yet, but he has played a full round. He’s probably about 75 percent but he wasn't going to miss a major so we will see how it goes." Kokrak has been out of action since having surgery for a sport hernia. He last pegged it at THE PLAYERS where he missed the cut. Thanks to two top 10s and another six top 20s, he's still 73rd in the FedExCup standings. While he's perhaps not a wise fantasy investment at Valhalla, it's good news that he's far enough along in his recovery to give it a go.

Jason Kokrak will be sidelined for several weeks after having surgery for a sports hernia, Rotoworld has learned in an email from Kevin Canning of The Legacy Agency.

The Legacy Agency represents Kokrak, who hasn't competed since missing the cut at THE PLAYERS seven weeks ago. "He should be able to resume chipping and putting in about two weeks," Canning wrote. "Can't resume full golf activity for a while. He's targeting a return by the PGA Championship (Aug. 7-10) if all goes well." Kokrak has yet to qualify for the season's final major, but should via a special money list through the conclusion of the RBC Canadian Open at the end of July. The top 70 are automatically exempt. He's currently 69th. While he will certainly fall outside the bubble, the same list is used to complete the field of 156 after all other exemptions are exhausted. Kokrak is currently 59th in the FedExCup standings, so he's all set for fully exempt status for 2014-15.

Jason Kokrak has been removed from the published field of this week's Zurich Classic of New Orleans.

Kokrak tied for 12th at Harbour Town for his eighth top 20 of the season. He's 2-for-2 at TPC Louisiana, but neither payday went for a top 55.

Jason Kokrak crafted a bogey-free, 5-under-par 34-32=66 in the third round of the RBC Heritage to make a big move up the leaderboard.

Kokrak began the day in an eight-way tie for 50th, but his five birdies have him on the cusp of an eighth top-20 finish of the 2013-14 PGA TOUR season. Harbour Town Golf Links is known for being short and tight, which doesn't describe the bombers usual tee-to-green game, but he made it work. His 16 GIR on Saturday are off the charts by Harbour Town's standards.

Jason Kokrak returns to Hilton Head, South Carolina for his third crack at the RBC Heritage.

On paper, it wouldn't seem that this is the best venue for the bomber. The early returns support that, as he missed the cut here in 2012 and only marginally improved to a T71 last year. He can't be written off completely, as he has already amassed seven top-20 finishes.

Jason Kokrak held on for a 1-over-par 35-38=73 in the final round of the Arnold Palmer Invitational to crack the top five at 10-under 278.

Kokrak bounced back from a bogey-bogey start at Bay Hill to record three birdies over his next four holes. That would be it for the red figures, as he would play the remaining 12 holes with 10 pars and two bogeys. With Adam Scott falling, a strong back nine would have given Kokrak the chance at a breakthrough win. As it stands, it is his second top 10 and seventh top 20 of 2013-14. He's inching closer to the winner's circle every week.
Mar 23 - 6:02 PM

Jason Kokrak spun a 5-under-par 33-34=67 in the third round of the Arnold Palmer Invitational to join Matt Every in the clubhouse lead at 11-under 205.

The bomber did most of his damage early, erasing a bogey at the first with four birdies over his next five holes. His only other action was a 22'5" birdie at the par-4 11th and a 10'2" birdie on the par-4 18th to end the day. He and Every are similar in that they have each been consistently knocking on the door of their first PGA TOUR victories over the past 12 months. Kokrak already has six top-20 finishes in 2013-14.
Mar 22 - 5:29 PM

Jason Kokrak turned in a 1-under-par 35-36=71 for his second round of the Arnold Palmer Invitational to post 6-under 138 and sit one stroke off the 36-hole clubhouse lead.

He landed 14 greens in regulation and converted four times with rolls from 11'1", 13'6" and 33'4" at the 13th, 17th and fifth holes, respectively. He also recorded a zero-putt five-yarder from just off the green at 14 for a fifth birdie. Kokrak's walk around Bay Hill wasn't without its problems, however, as he opened and closed his opening nine with bogeys at 10 and 18. He then doubled the par-4 sixth after taking a drop for an unplayable lie off the tee.
Mar 21 - 2:30 PM

Jason Kokrak carded a 5-under-par 33-34=67 in his opening round of the Arnold Palmer Invitational, finishing four strokes in arrears of the overnight lead.

Best known as a guy that can seriously move it off the tee, Kokrak walked off with a strokes gained-putting metric near 3.750. He missed only once inside 14 feet, that a par attempt from 9'11" at the par-4 13th hole. It was his second of two bogeys on the day -- he rinsed his tee ball en route to a 6 at the par-5 sixth -- but he more than outweighed the negative with seven birdies. That set included conversions from 21'3", 17'6" and 11'4" at the eighth, ninth and 14th holes, respectively. He also poured in a par save from 10'3" at 2. Last week's T14 at Copperhead was his sixth top 20 of the season. He arrived at Bay Hill slotted 52nd in FedExCup points.
Mar 20 - 7:02 PM

Jason Kokrak spun a 3-under-par 33-35=68 in the third round of the Valspar Championship, reaching the 54-hole mark at 3-under 210.

The bomber outpaced his lone bogey of the day on the front nine of the Copperhead Course with four birdies, then wrote down nine pars on the back. Considering he's missed the cut each of his first three attempts, this is a marked improvement. His ball-striking was incredible on Saturday, missing just one (of 13) fairway and landing 16 GIR.
Mar 15 - 3:47 PM

Jason Kokrak has missed each of his three cuts at the Valspar Championship, but returns for a fourth dose of the Copperhead Course this week.

The bomber has been mostly feast or famine in 2013-14, securing six of nine cuts with five of them going for top-20 finishes. He last played in The Honda Classic, kicking off the Florida swing and tying for 41st. As a general rule Copperhead doesn't necessarily reward length, which isn't a favor for Kokrak. Needless to say, better chance for a famine than feast this week.

Jason Kokrak turned in a 3-under-par 34-34=68 for his third round of the Waste Management Phoenix Open to post 10-under 203.

He hit 12 greens in regulation and buried five birdies, including on each of the three par 5s. His only conversion of notable distance measured 17'2" at the par-3 fourth hole. This is his 15th round (of 20) this season in the 60s. It's just a matter of time before he's hoisting his first piece of hardware on the PGA TOUR.
Feb 1 - 5:35 PM

Jason Kokrak shot a 5-under-par 32-34=66 in his opening round of the Waste Management Phoenix Open, finishing two strokes off the clubhouse lead.

He was bogey-free 7-under until concluding his round with bogeys at the par-4 eighth and ninth holes. Kokrak hit just 11 greens in regulation but managed to find seven birdies, including conversions of 13'4" and 11'11" at Nos. 17 and 2, respectively. He's 0-for-2 at this tournament but that slate is likely to change on Friday.
Jan 30 - 4:17 PM

Jason Kokrak added a 3-under-par 33-34=67 in his second round of the Sony Open in Hawaii to reach the halfway point in 7-under 133.

Ah, golf is so funny sometimes; it's a phrase we hear often. After hitting only eight greens en route to a 66 on Thursday, Kokrak totaled 14 today and still went one stroke higher. He went just 2-for-4 in scrambling, but circled five birdies for the second straight day. The set included conversions from 40'10" at the par-3 11th hole and 13'10" at the par-4 first. He also poured in a par save from just outside 10 feet to begin his round at 10. The long hitter sits three strokes back of the early 36-hole clubhouse lead.
