|Birthday:||May 22, 1985|
Jason Kokrak was raised in Warren and played high school golf at JFK High School in Warren where he twice led his team to the Ohio Boy's state championship as Division III medalist. He went on to play college golf at Xavier University in Cincinnati and graduated in 2007. During his college career, he won both the 2006 and 2007 Ohio Amateur titles. Kokrak turned professional after graduation.
During the 2007 U.S. Amateur, Kokrak led all players with a score of 137 during the 36 hole match play qualifier at the Olympic Club in San Francisco. That same year, he made an appearance in the U.S. Open at Oakmont Country Club, when he successfully came through sectional and regional qualifying.
In 2011, he exploded onto the pro golf scene over the second half of the Nationwide Tour season — winning two events and nearly capturing the season-ending Tour Championship. It allowed him to finish 4th on the Nationwide money list, which earned him 2012 PGA Tour membership.
BETHESDA, MD. Jason Kokrak's second round at the AT&T National was interrupted by storms Friday, but the Warren JFK graduate is still in the hunt.
Kokrak started on the back nine and made it through 10 holes before play was suspended at Congressional Country Club. The former Xavier University player birdied No. 10, but then took back-to-back bogeys on the 11th and 12th holes before righting himself.
Kokrak birdied No. 14 and No. 15, then began his second nine with another birdie on No. 1 before play was halted. He is 1-under par.
Co-leaders Roberto Casto and Jordan Spieth completed their rounds and are at 7-under 135.
Play is scheduled to resume at 7 a.m. on Saturday.
