Player of the Year
Jason William Gore (born May 17, 1974) is an American professional golfer.
Gore attended the University of Arizona, then transferred to Pepperdine University. 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. In 2005, he played on the PGA Tour after moving from the Nationwide Tour midseason, after receiving a battlefield promotion, which is given when a player wins three Nationwide Tour events in one season.
Gore has one PGA Tour win, the 84 Lumber Classic in 2005, and is the all-time leader in career wins on what is now the Web.com Tour, with seven. Gore belongs to a small group of players who have shot 59 in their careers. His historic round of 59 happened on Friday of the 2005 Cox Classic at Champions Run in Omaha, Nebraska. He is also one of two golfers to win on both the Web.com Tour and PGA Tour in the same season, following Paul Stankowski in 1996.
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; Michael Campbell won the event. Gore was not fully exempt on the PGA Tour from 2009 to 2014. Gore had a strong 2015, but a poor 2016 saw him finish outside 150th, limiting him to past champion status for 2017.
After injuries and poor play, Gore went into the insurance business. In 2018, he received his license and is one of the co-founders of Kirkman Gore Insurance Services.
As a comeback from his retirement, Gore earned a sponsor exemption for the 2018 RSM Classic on the PGA Tour. After three rounds, he was in second place, a stroke behind leader Charles Howell III after posting scores of 68, 63 and 67. In the final round, Gore shot +2 and finished T15 for the tournament.
