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. Feb 18 - 8:32 PM

Jason Kokrak signed for a 7-under-par 34-31=65 after his opening round of the Humana Challenge at PGA West's Nicklaus Private.

Kokrak is percolating. After concluding the fall with a pair of top 20s, he opened 2015 with a T17 at last week's stop in Honolulu. 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. Just two strokes off the clubhouse lead, Kokrak is do battle with Palmer Private at PGA West on Friday.

That he has logged five starts in the 2014-15 season, with just one missed cut, is a sure sign that he is confident in his health moving forward. Expect him to contend for his first PGA TOUR win at some point this season.

Jason Kokrak fashioned a 5-under-par 31-35=66 in his opening round of the OHL Classic at Mayakoba.

Kokrak has fared nicely since return from a three-month break after having surgery for a sports hernia. He's 5-for-7 with a pair of 20s, including a T20 last week in Mississippi. Today at El Camaleón, he hit 15 greens in regulation and converted seven birdies, which co-led the field at the time he signed his card. With two bogeys on it as well, the bomber settled in one stroke off the clubhouse lead.

Jason Kokrak posted a 3-under-par 36-33=69 in his opening round of the Sanderson Farms Championship, good for very early possession of the clubhouse lead.

Kokrak went out in the first threesome of the first tee at the Country Club of Jackson this morning, so he might as well be the guy to earn the early attention. The long hitter buried six birdies against three bogeys to christen the track as a new host of a PGA TOUR event. The title sponsor inked a three-year agreement through 2016, so get used to its new spot in the fall.

Jason Kokrak returns to the Shriners Hospitals for Children Open for the third time.

His first two trips to Las Vegas have not gone well. He missed the cut in both the 2012 and 2013 editions at TPC Summerlin. The bomber experienced only moderate success with a T46 at the Open last week, so there doesn't appear to be a reason for his fortunes to change this week.

Jason Kokrak crafted a bogey-free 5-under-par 31-35=66 in the final round of the Deutsche Bank Championship to reach 8-under 276.

Kokrak began the week ranked 89th in the FedExCup standings but moved to 70th at the moment of his posting. The top 70 advance to the BMW Championship for the third leg of the FEC Playoffs. He did all of his heavy lifting early, circling each of his five birdies on the first eight holes at TPC Boston. Three of those birdies fell from between 11 and 21 feet, so the flat stick was behaving. He will now watch the scoreboard for the next three hours to see if he advances or comes up just short.

Jason Kokrak signed for a 3-under-par 34-34=68 following his opening round of the Deutsche Bank Championship.

For most intents and purposes, Kokrak hobbled into the Playoffs after admitting that he wasn't near 100 percent following surgery for a sports hernia months ago. After missing the cut badly at the PGA Championship, he authored a steady T61 at last week's Barclays. Today's score goes in the books as his first south of 70 since a final-round 68 at the Wells Fargo Championship in early May. He striped 11 (of 14) fairways at TPC Boston and hit 13 greens in regulation. That yielded six birdies, four of which from outside 11 feet. The longest measured 21'7" at the par-4 10th. Kokrak also squared one bogey and one double, but he can't complain about finishing just three strokes adrift of the clubhouse lead.

Jason Kokrak returns to TPC Boston for his second start at the Deutsche Bank Championship.

Kokrak might have returned prematurely from sports hernia surgery, at the PGA Championship, but performed admirably last week at The Barclays. It was only a T61 finish, but playing four rounds at this point in the season is all you can ask for after an injury. Three weeks removed from his return, it's now time to make a Playoff push, as he's currently in the danger zone at 89th in the FedExCup standings. Kokrak provides immense upside week to week, but no one will blame him if he's still shaking off some rust from his three-month recess.

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).

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.
