    Finally Kokrak!

    I almost gave up on this guy winning on the pga tour.
    He was quietly one of the best never to win on tour. But eventually with more and more hot shots entering the fray it only gets harder and harder.

    What a blessing to get shadow creek knowing it better than most. Same reason I think tiger will win next week at Sherwood.

        Kokrak had played shadow creek plenty of times as an MGM ambassador. That was addressed all week; but they never have a number. After winning He said something like that he knows the course well enough by now. His course experience was huge, especially on the greens. You could see he had local knowledge over the other guys.
