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. Aug 31 - 10:15 PM

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Jason Kokrak has withdrawn from this week's Barracuda Championship.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

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.

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.
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.
