Inside the ropes with Jason Kokrak

RELATED: Scott stretches Bay Hill lead to 7

Friday: The good news is that Kokrak is tied for fifth halfway through the Arnold Palmer Invitational at Bay Hill Club & Lodge in Orlando, Fla. The bad news is that at 6-under 138, he’s eight strokes behind leader Adam Scott, who is 14-under and threatening to run away with the title. Scott matched the course record with a 62 Thursday. Kokrak had five birdies, two bogeys and a double bogey during a round of 71 Friday.
