Golfer Makes Rarest of All Birds At Torrey Pines [VIDEO]
Double eagle anyone?
Pro Golfer Jason Gore was struggling early Saturday, sitting 2 over par on the day as he approached the 18th tee during the third round of the Farmers Insurance Open at Torrey Pines Golf Club in San Diego. Gore pounded his tee shot straight down the middle of the fairway on the par-5 18th hole, setting himself up for his second shot, which if he hit it well might set him up for an eagle on the hole. Gore grabbed his fairway metal for his second shot, and took aim.
Gore hit the second shot well.
The hole-out moved Gore to 1-under par on the round and 3-under for the tournament. The California native and graduate of Pepperdine University started his day on the back 9 of the course, after weather prompted Tour officials to adjust the day's schedule because of the weather forecast. Gore finished the round with a 2-under par 70 and sits at 4 under-par after day three of the tournament, tied for 24th place, 5 strokes behind co-leaders Scott Brown and K.J. Choi.
Gore has one lone victory during his PGA career, the 2005 84 Lumber Classic.
