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.

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.

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.
Mar 21 - 4:17 PM

Jason Kokrak settled for a 1-under-par 38-33=71 in his second round of the Arnold Palmer Invitational.

When scoring is going as low as it is this week, even a red number can be disappointing. Kokrak opened with a double bogey at the par-4 first hole and added two bogeys to tarnish the luster of five birdies. His par breakers included a zero-putt six-yarder at the par-4 10th and a conventional conversion from 16'4" at the par-5 12th. So, at 6-under 138, he's seven shot in arrears of the 36-hole clubhouse lead and outside the top 10 on the leaderboard entering the weekend.
Mar 20 - 5:28 PM

With a 5-under-par 33-34=67 in his opening round of the Arnold Palmer Invitational, Jason Kokrak stands alone atop the leaderboard.

He went off in the second group on the 10th tee today, so there were will many potential challengers to knock him from the perch, but PGA TOUR events aren't won on Thursdays. This was an extension of the form that yielded a share of seventh place at Copperhead on Sunday. Kokrak split only six (of 14) fairways at Bay Hill today, but he landed 15 greens in regulation. He converted five times with an eagle-3 at the 16th hole. His longest measured 16'8" for birdie at the par-3 second. He was bogey-free until failing to get up and down at the par-3 seventh where he settled for bogey, but anytime you can hang a low number on the board on this track, it's a successful day.
Mar 19 - 12:17 PM

Jason Kokrak signed for a 3-under-par 35-33=68 in the final round of the Valspar Championship and walks off the Copperhead Course with a top-10 finish at 5-under 279.

The bomber circled six birdies and squared three bogeys in the finale. His 25'11" birdie at the par-4 second was clearly the highlight, and he also added a nifty 10-footer on the par-4 ninth. He split 10 of 13 fairways and landed 15 GIR on what proved to be a solid day of ball-striking. This his his first top 10 of the 2014-15 season, and fourth top 20.
Mar 15 - 4:26 PM

With a 3-under-par 34-34=68 in his opening round of the Valspar Championship, Jason Kokrak sits three strokes off the clubhouse lead.

Kokrak has no better than a T40 (WM Phoenix Open) in his last five starts, and he hadn't broken 70 since an opening 68 at Monterey Peninsula Country Club's Shore Course at the AT&T Pebble Beach National Pro-Am nine rounds ago. So, today's effort is a welcome relief. He hit 13 greens in regulation, suffered just one bogey and lassoed four birdies. His longest measured 16'7" at the par-4 16th hole in what was bounce-back conversion after a 4 at the par-3 15th.
Mar 12 - 6:16 PM

Jason Kokrak is set for his fourth Northern Trust Open at Riviera Country Club this week.

The bomber has made two of his three cuts in this event, with a T34 in his first trip back in 2012 being the best. After a trio of top-20 finishes, he has failed to do any better than a T40 in his last three outings of 2014-15. Rock bottom occurred last week, as he missed the cut at Pebble Beach. While making the cut isn't out of the question. It's hard to believe he will factor into the decision.

Today, he striped 11 (of 14) fairways and hit 14 greens in regulation en route to eight birdies. Only a bogey-5 at the 18th hole -- his ninth of the loop -- marred an otherwise sparkling performance.
