One would think the terrible final round that befell Jason Gore at the US Open would have broken him. Here was Tin Cup with a shot at the Open and he fell apart. Apparently it didn’t have much of an impact. He rattled off his third straight Nationwide Tour victory in a row today, including shooting 59 in the second round. Amazing. Prior to playing the US Open, Gore wasn’t going anywhere, having missed a couple of cuts, with his best finish being an 18th showing. The week before the Open he was better. Following the round in which he shot 84 in the US Open, he placed 10th in the Nationwide and then three straight wins. Talk about the power of a streak. Let’s hope he can take it over to the PGA Tour.
I’ll be seeing three new Ontario golf courses over the next week in an attempt to complete my Golf Digest ratings. The courses include Georgian Bay Club, Ridge at Manitou and the unheralded, but supposedly quite good, Seguin Valley. I’ll report back my findings.
