Jason Gore, the Leader at the Wyndham, Almost Quit Golf

August 23, 2015

Jason Gore, who is leading the Wyndham Championship after three rounds, almost quit golf a couple of years ago.

That’s what he told the media after his third-round 62 at Sedgefield Country Club in Greensboro, N.C., on Saturday, which put him alone atop the leaderboard and two strokes ahead of Tiger Woods.

But Gore, who is known on Tour for his humor, said he “couldn’t even do that right.”

“I tried to give it up,” Gore said. “I couldn’t even do that right. I applied for the Pepperdine coaching job and I think I’ve said this before, but apparently I wasn’t the guy that was going to further the Christian mission at Pepperdine University.”

Gore, who went to school at Pepperdine, is looking for his second career win on Sunday.
