WARREN, Ohio- A local pro golfer will be wearing the Panera Bread logo on the green in the new year.

With one full season of the PGA tour under his belt, Kokrak says he's ready and proud to wear a local logo.
"It's a great thing too, for me to represent my hometown, represent the community," Kokrak said.
"Hopefully I can play well and bring a little bit more publicity for Panera Bread on a national level.
Kokrak will tee-off in the PGA opening Hyundai Tournament of Champions in Hawaii in January.
