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. Apr 16 - 2:33 PM

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.

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.
Jan 10 - 5:34 PM

Jason Kokrak carded a 4-under-par 31-35=66 in his opening round of the Sony Open in Hawaii.

Scoring has risen this afternoon at Waialae. Kokrak is 2-for-3 on the season with a T10 and T12, so he'll be in a great position to pile on. He landed only eight greens in regulation but limited the damage to a lone bogey at the par-4 12th hole. Elsewhere, the bomber picked up five birdies. The set included a 12-yard chip-in from the rough at 2, a conventional roll from 19'3" at 3 and a 25-yard hole-out from the fringe at 4. He also poured in a par save measuring 10'5" at No. 7 and would go on to sign his card sitting three strokes off the clubhouse lead.
Jan 9 - 9:48 PM

Jason Kokrak has yet to win on the PGA TOUR, but as he begins his third season on the big stage there is little doubt that a breakthrough is in his future.

Massive off the tee, Kokrak will never face a course where anyone holds an advantage regarding distance over him. In his two previous years, he has notched a runner-up and a third-place finish, knocking on the door at least once per season. The new campaign has already seen him make two of three cuts, with a T10 and a T12 accounting for the damage. For salary gamers, he improved from 119th on the 2012 money list to 70th in 2013.

Jason Kokrak posted a 1-under-par 33-36=69 in the final round of The McGladrey Classic to finish in a tie for 10th at 8-under 272.

Kokrak had quite the colorful scorecard, posting three birdies and four bogeys to go with a hole out for eagle on the par-4 fifth hole. Ironically, he made a hole-in-one on that same hole in the Wednesday pro-am. While his first win will have to wait, this is his seventh top 10 in 57 PGA TOUR starts. He's knocking on the door at a steady rate.
Sun, Nov 10, 2013 04:41:00 PM

Jason Kokrak settled for a 1-under-par 34-35=69 in the third round of The McGladrey Classic and trails by three with 18 to play at 7-under 203.

The bomber never could get his round off the ground, erasing birdies on the sixth and 10th holes with bogey on the 12th and 14th. He would at least manage to finish the day in red numbers when he drained a birdie on the par-3 17th. Making an argument that distance could matter, at least in the breezy conditions on Sea Island, he ranks second in driving distance despite struggling in many statistical categories this week. He’s not too far back to claim his first PGA TOUR victory on Sunday, but it will likely take a low round and a little help at the top.

Jason Kokrak spun a 5-under-par 32-33=65 in his second round of The McGladrey Classic.

First of all, if you haven't already learned, the bomber aced the par-4 fifth hole in Wednesday's pro-am. It's a dogleg-right hole, but Kokrak laced his drive over the water between the tee and the green. Through his first two rounds of official competition since, he's gone par-birdie, but today's overall effort is impressive due to windy conditions. He split 11 (of 14) fairways and hit 15 greens in regulation, swallowing just one bogey along the way. He sandwiched an eagle conversion from 32 feet at the par-5 15th with four birdies, including respective runs of 19'1" and 11 feet at Nos. 1 and 6. Kokrak reached the halfway point in 6-under 134, one stroke adrift of the 36-hole clubhouse lead.
