Beating the field by seven shots in professional golf almost never happens, but don’t you dare say that to Jason Kokrak. The Nationwide Tour standout dominated the field at the Miccosukee Championship this week in Miami, FL where he was the leader after all four tournament rounds. This is the second Nationwide Tour victory for Kokrak in the last 5 weeks, and one that he will not soon forget. Kokrak led the field in birdies and Greens in Regulation, as well as ranking inside the top ten in driving distance and Putts per GIR. Kokrak relied on rounds of 63, 66, 69, and 66 to get him to a four day total of -20, seven shots removed from the runner-up.
“I would never have dreamt this. At the beginning of the year you set goals that you want to meet and then you set some that maybe are a little out of reach. I’ve already exceeded all the goals that I set for myself this year.”
By virtue of this tournament, Kokrak moves into fourth place on the Nationwide Tour Money List with only two events left in the season. Cleveland Golf/Srixon currently holds three of the top four places on the money list, including money leader J.J. Killeen and Ted Potter, Jr. Kokrak currently ranks number one on tour in driving distance at 320 yards.
