HOUSTON – On Tuesday, Jason Kokrak considering withdrawing. He lifted a trophy on Sunday.
Kokrak claimed the Hewlett Packard Enterprise Houston Open for his third victory in his last 28 PGA TOUR starts. He’s been one of the TOUR’s most successful players since the start of last season.
Kokrak shot 10-under 270 to earn his third PGA TOUR title, finishing finish two shots ahead of Kevin Tway and Scottie Scheffler. Kokrak moved to seventh in the FedExCup with the win.
Tway, the former Edmond North and Oklahoma State star, shot a final-round 2-under 68 to record his best finish since also tying for second in the QBE Shootout in January of 2020. That came in the midst of a streak of missing six cuts in seven events when Tway was struggling to overcome digestive issues. Tway shot up to 22nd in FedEx Cup points with the tie for second, which earned $667,500.
Tway’s finish was the best in another good week for players with Oklahoma ties. Robert Streb, his Edmond North teammate, shot 5-under 65 in the final round to move up into a tie for seventh and boost his FedEx Cup rank up to 35th.
Former OSU star Matthew Wolff made a final-round ace in a tie for 11th. Former University of Oklahoma star Max McGreevy of Edmond notched his first PGA Tour top-20 finish, tying for 19th at 2-under.
Talor Gooch of Midwest City and OSU also made the cut and tied for 60th. Taylor Moore of Edmond missed the cut.
