SAN DIEGO, California (WKBN) – Warren JFK grad Jason Kokrak had a rocky opening round at the 121st U.S. Open on Thursday at Torrey Pines, shooting a two-over 73.
It was an eventful opening nine for Kokrak who started on the back. He opened with a birdie on #10 before bogeys on 11 and 12.
The former Eagle would bounce back on 14 with a birdie but would follow it with another bogey on 15, before ending the nine with a birdie on 18 to finish the back-nine at even par.
Kokrak would get to one-under with a birdie on #5, which at the time had him just two shots back of the lead.
But he would find more trouble on six with a double-bogey, then finishing his round with a bogey on nine.
The leader currently sits at 4-under with roughly a quarter of the field left to finish their rounds.
Kokrak will begin Round 2 on Friday at 4:47 p.m.
