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.

Kokrak one shot off the lead in Houston

Published: Fri, March 29, 2013 @ 8:18 p.m.

— Warren JFK High School graduate Jason Kokrak shot a second-round 69 on Friday and is one shot behind leader Steve Wheatcroft halfway through the Shell Houston Open.

Kokrak, who opened with a 66 on Thursday, again played well on a Redstone Golf Club layout he said suits his game. This time, Kokrak shot a 69 with five birdies (Nos. 4, 6, 8, 13 and 15. All but No. 6 are par-5 holes.

Kokrak's only glitch was a double-bogey on the par-4 17th hole.

His two-day total of 9-under 135 was one stroke behind Wheatcroft's 10-under 134. Kokrak is tied with first-round leader D.A. Points, who opened with a 64 and shot 71 on Friday.
