Jason Kokrak’s final shot of the 2022 Travelers Championship was a doozy, and it led to a most unusual disqualification from the tournament.
Having belted a drive of 327 yards into the left rough at the ninth hole of TPC River Highlands in Cromwell, Connecticut, his final hole of the day, the burly Kokrak had little to play for and it showed. His all-or-nothing shot turned out to be a giant dud, flying over the green and across a road. ShotLink measured it as having traveled “87 yards into the unknown.”
But rather than go back to the original spot and take a penalty and finish out the hole, Kokrak took whatever balls he had left, hopped in his car and went home. He was disqualified from the tournament after failing to finish the hole and record a score and failing to sign and return a scorecard.
We all had a feeling we knew what that meant.
