Biography[edit]

Gore was born in Van Nuys, California. He first attended the University of Arizona before transferring to Pepperdine University.[1] While at Pepperdine, he was part of their NCAA Division I Championship team in 1997. He also played on the victorious Walker Cup team that year.

Gore turned professional in 1997. He plays on the PGA Tour after moving from the Nationwide Tour midseason in 2005 after receiving a battlefield promotion, which is given when a player wins three Nationwide Tour events in one season. He has one PGA Tour win, the 84 Lumber Classic in 2005.

Gore played in the final group of the 2005 U.S. Open with Retief Goosen. He shot a 14-over-par 84 to drop all the way to a tie for 48th, and Michael Campbell went on to win the trophy. Gore has not played full-time on the PGA Tour since 2009.

Gore currently resides in Valencia, California[2] with his wife, Megan, his son, Jaxon, and his daughter, Olivia.
