Prior to the start of the second round, Jason Gore withdrew from the Quicken Loans National, citing strep throat as the reason.
Gore opened his week with a birdie-free, 5-over-par 38-38=76. He carded three bogeys and a double. He was off his game in all facets, losing 4.079 strokes tee-to-green and 1.904 strokes putting. Gore entered the week ranked 133rd in the FedExCup standings, so his work is not done if he wants to make his way back to the FEC Playoffs for a second straight season. Given the nature of this illness (strep throat), we should expect no long-term implications and treat him as normal the next time he tees it up. Jun 24 - 9:07 AM

Jason Gore twirled a bogey-free 7-under-par 34-31=65 in today's final round of the Wells Fargo Championship for a four-day total of 2-over 290, up 27 spots on the live leaderboard to T51. UPDATE: With play completed, Gore finished T41 and his 65 was the low round of the day.

According to PGA TOUR Media on Twitter, Gore's 18-stroke improvement from his third-round one-birdie 83 ties a tourney record for biggest swing between rounds. It also matches the low lap of the week turned in by Steve Wheatcroft and Andrew Loupe in R1. The soon-to-be 42-year-old (May 17th) circled six on 16 greens in regulation and added a 14-footer from fringe on the par-5 10th. At last check, he gained 7.346 strokes total, versus a disastrous -9.308 in R3, and posts a personal best at Quail Hollow in 22 career rounds, eclipsing 67 in R2 13 years ago. Trivial perhaps, but it gives him a tailwind heading to THE PLAYERS where he's in the published field for the first time since 2008.

Jason Gore turns his attention to Quail Hollow Club for this week's Wells Fargo Championship.

If the season were to end today, Gore would miss the FedExCup Playoffs at 127th in the FEC standings. He's a respectable 10-for-14 but has just two top-30 finishes with a best of T11 five starts ago at the Valspar. The soon-to-be 42-year-old (May 17th) has played the Wells Fargo sporadically, taking six cracks over a 12-year time frame with a best of T26 in 2006. He cashed for a third time last year with T55 on progressively worse laps of 70-71-72-73.

Jason Gore crafted a 4-under-par 34-33=67 in today's third round of the Valspar Championship to post 2-under 211, up 31 spots on the live leaderboard to T12. UPDATE: With play completed, Gore is T9, six adrift of 54-hole leader Bill Haas.

For the first time since his 2003 tourney debut seven visits ago, Gore gets to play all four on the Copperhead Course. That 2003 edition ended in T69 on rounds of 70-75-78-76 for 15-over 299. Entering the week, his scoring average on the par-71 layout in 15 laps was 74.27. The 42-year-old is 8-for-9 on the season with a WD in his last start after a first-round 5-over 76 at the Northern Trust, and a season-best T17 at the CareerBuilder, his only top-25 finish. He opened with a pair of 1-over 72s before circling four birdies in R3, all from inside of 11 feet, and an eagle-3 at 15 from 19'3" -- his second eagle of the week -- overshadowing bogeys on 13 and 18 (failed scrambles). Gore found just four (of 13) fairways and 11 greens in regulation, but posted a 1.545 in putts per GIR and a 2.217 in strokes gained: putting. His 67 is personal best at the Valspar, eclipsing 69 in 2008/R1.

Jason Gore has withdrawn during the second round of the Northern Trust Open. UPDATE: The reason for the WD was cited as a back injury. UPDATE #2: Gore returned to action on March 10th with a 1-over 72 at the Valspar Championship.

Gore opened the week with a 5-over 76 in round one. He played his opening nine today at 3-over 38. He added a bogey on the par-5 11th and then another on the par-4 13th. Gore called it quits after 14 holes, sitting at 10-over on the week. Gore will be added to the long list of golfers with back issues. This should not have lasting effects and he should be good to go next time he tees it up.

Jason Gore nutted his first career albatross in round three of the Farmers Insurance Open on the South Course at Torrey Pines.

The 41-year-old went off No. 10 tee on Moving Day and was birdie-less 2-over-par thru his first eight holes, squaring back-to-back bogeys on 12 and 13, the former a three-putt from 45'3". Playing his 740th career round on the PGA TOUR, he erased those two blemishes and added one for the good with his mighty blow from 250 yards on the 552-yard par-5 18th. Gore's albatross video link below was the second of the season on TOUR joining Tony Finau's deuce at the Shriners, and moved him to 3-under for the tournament.
Jan 30 - 2:45 PM

Making his ninth CareerBuilder Challenge appearance, Jason Gore fired an 8-under-par 33-31=64 on the Nicklaus Tournament Course for a two-day total of 12-under 132, up 29 places on the live leaderboard to T3.

Gore is one (of 12) to make equipment changes for 2016, making the switch from PING to Callaway. He debuted his new sticks with a T70 last week at the Sony on rounds of 70-65-71-70. The 41-year-old, who shot 4-under 68 on day one at La Quinta CC, began his second round off No. 10 tee and promptly birdied four straight before squaring his lone bogey at the par-4 14th. He bounced-back with back-to-back circles on 15 and 16 to turn 5-under. After the break, he added three more par breakers on Nos. 3-5 to conclude his scoring. Gore rode his nine-birdie romp to low lap in the clubhouse on day two on any of the three courses thus far. His personal best in eight previous CBC appearances is T22 in his 2001 tourney debut.
Jan 22 - 5:27 PM

Jason Gore played four events prior to the holiday break and cashed in each, but nothing better than T37 at the 77-man no-cut CIMB Classic.

In his four starts, Gore ranks 13th in total driving and 23rd in ball striking, but 129th in scrambling and 205th in strokes gained: putting. He's playing back-to-back campaigns on TOUR for the first time since 2008-09 thanks to a 92nd-place finish in FedExCup points last season. The 41-year-old made just 12 cuts in 26 events (1 WD) but collected 300.00 FEC points for solo second at the Wyndham, where he led outright after 54 holes following a career-best 8-under 62 in round three. He shot 1-under 69 in the finale but Davis Love III raced past with 64 to eclipse him by one. It was his second runner-up on TOUR and only his third podium in 252 career starts. The California resident's only TOUR victory remains the 2005 84 LUMBER Classic in Pennsylvania.

Jason Gore closed out his second round of The RSM Classic birdie-birdie-birdie, and then signed for a 3-under-par 38-31=69 at Sea Island Resort's Plantation Course.

It took the entire round but at least he paid off hitting 14 greens in regulation. Prior to the late run, Gore traded three birdies with three bogeys. At 8-under 134, he's two strokes off the 36-hole clubhouse lead. This runs his season slate to 4-for-4, but he remains in pursuit of his first top 35.

Jason Gore authored a bogey-free, 5-under-par 32-33=65 at Sea Island Resort's Seaside Course in today's opening round of The RSM Classic.

The big fella arrived for his second appearance in the tournament (MC, 2014) having cashed in his first three starts this season. However, none yielded a top-35 finish. Obviously, sitting just two strokes off the pace in Georgia, he's easily on pace to snap the drought. Today, he found all 14 fairways and missed only two greens in regulation. Gore connected for five birdies, including a five-yarder from just off the green at the par-3 17th hole. His longest conventional conversions measured 37'8", 22'7" and 16'9" at Nos. 16, 2 and 5, respectively. Despite that touch, it's his strokes gained: tee-to-green that jumps off his scorecard. Gore led the 78 at Seaside with a 3.383 clip. He'll move over to take on the Plantation Course in the second round.

Jason Gore chased his opening 66 at the CIMB Classic with a bogey-free, 35-33=68 in today's second round.

He hit 15 greens in regulation and buried four birdies before coming to rest at 10-under 134. That has Gore four strokes off the 36-hole clubhouse lead. Despite today's success, he was down six spots on the leaderboard when he signed his card. So it goes when scoring is phenomenally low.

Jason Gore hung up a 6-under-par 31-35=66 in today's opening round of the CIMB Classic.

At the time he signed his card, Gore held outright possession of the clubhouse lead, but it won't hold as Scott Piercy is tearing up Kuala Lumpur Golf & Country Club. Gore split 10 (of 14) fairways and hit 14 greens in regulation en route to an eagle (at the par-5 fifth hole) and five birdies. He touched bogey-free 7-under with birdie at the par-4 17th, but bogeyed the difficult par-5 18th. The finishing hole was the seventh-hardest of 167 par 5 on the PGA TOUR last season. Gore will gladly accept the score, however. He opened the season with a solo 73rd at the Frys.com Open before taking last week off to gear up for his debut in Malaysia.

Jason Gore opened his 2015-16 PGA TOUR season with a 5-under-par 32-35=67 in today's first round of the Frys.com Open.

He held a piece of the clubhouse lead at last check, but that will go by the boards at vulnerable Silverado today. Gore split 12 (of 14) fairways and hit 12 greens in regulation. He went 6-for-6 in scrambling with a pair of par saves ranging 11-14 feet, but squared a three-jack bogey from 47 feet at the par-3 seventh hole. Prior to it, he corralled an eagle (from the fringe six yards away at the par-5 18th hole) and four birdies, the longest stretching 22'2" at the par-4 sixth. Gore missed the cut here last year and didn't sniff retaining his card until the Wyndham Championship in August with a runner-up finish. This is to say that he can appreciate the value of a hot start, but gamers need to continue to remain cautious every time he tees it up.

Jason Gore gears up for his fifth appearance at this week's Deutsche Bank Championship.

Gore hasn't played at TPC Boston since 2007, where he finished T23. He arrives in great form, rattling off three straight top 30s, including a runner-up finish at the Wyndham Championship. Overall, his 12-for-25 season record is unimpressive, but his current form makes him an interesting sleeper for gamers to consider. At 79th in the FedExCup standings, he can't afford to stay in place this week.

Jason Gore sets his eyes on Plainfield Country Club at this week's Barclays.

Gore arrives in great form, closing out the regular season with a T15 at the Barracuda Championship and a runner-up finish last week at the Wyndham Championship. Overall, his lack of consistency is the problem as he compiled an 11-for-24 record to earn his current 98th spot in the FedExCup standings. Gamers looking to play the hot hand will definitely need to give Gore a hard look this week.
