Jason Day birdied three of his final five holes to move inside the top 20, while Texas native Jordan Spieth missed cut after carding an ugly quadruple-bogey late in his round.

Beginning the day two strokes off the pace, Kokrak birdied the first and rolled in from 15 feet at the third to move into a share of the advantage.

The world No 128 posted a two-putt birdie at the seventh and picked up a shot at the ninth to reach the turn in 31, before pulling clear of the chasing back with back-to-back gains from the 12th.

Horschel briefly moved within three of the lead after his treble birdie finish, only for Kokrak to leave himself a tap-in at the 16th and post a seven-foot gain at the next.

The American then missed the final fairway and pitched from the rough back on to the fairway, before getting up-and-down to maintain his bogey-free day.

Overnight joint-leader James Hahn temporarily got to seven under after following a gain at the sixth with an eagle-three at the next, only to bogey his penultimate hole to join the group on six under.

Cameron Tringale, Bud Cauley, Jhonattan Vegas and Byeong Hun An join Hahn in a share of third, with Johnson also six off the pace following a final-hole blemish.
