Social media users speculated that this was Kokrak’s way of saying bye to the PGA Tour and hello to the rival Saudi-backed league but according to Action Network’s Jason Sobel, Kokrak’s actions were more of a courtesy to his fellow golfers.

​​Texted with Will McGirt, who was playing with Kokrak. They didn’t realize the ball went OB,” Sobel said in a tweet. “By the time he could figure out where to drop, the group behind was waiting. He didn’t want to hold them up and was going to MC anyway. But it wasn’t some walk-off from PGA Tour life.
