It took Jason Kokrak 233 starts to take home his first PGA TOUR win, but just another 16 to add a second, as the 36-year-old journeyman claimed victory this week in Texas at the Charles Schwab Challenge.

Despite a final round card that featured just eight pars, the effort was enough to hold off the field and move past a faltering Jordan Spieth, who finished at three over for the day. With the win, Kokrak puts himself into serious Ryder Cup consideration, moving from 20th to 13th in this week’s ranking.

For Spieth, the week’s solo second finish continued the Ryder Cup star’s recent resurgence and vaulted him another two spots to 9th in the ranking.

Charley Hoffman and Patton Kizzire round out the week’s biggest movers, jumping to 24th and 39th, respectively.
