He got here Monday without his underwear, his car stereo, his computer and his hopes. Six days later, Jason Gore has a shot to win the U.S. Open, and chances are things might look a lot brighter to him. For Gore, the road has been long and winding enough without having his car broken into and ransacked last Sunday in Asheville, N.C., where he and his wife spent the night on their way here. Megan Ann Gore had all her clothes stolen except what she was wearing.

The Northern Trust Open is a home game for Jason Gore. He lives in Valencia, so he commutes to the tournament. However, he said he wasn't sure what he would do this weekend, even joking about finding a dorm room at Pepperdine to avoid the dreaded "Jamzilla" on the San Diego Freeway. The freeway was so clogged Wednesday - days before the freeway closure - that Gore followed a suggestion to keep going east on Sunset Boulevard, then take the 101 to the 170 to the 5. Safe to say he'll never try that route again, because it turned a 32-mile drive home into a two-hour, 45-minute slog.

The first thing you notice about Jason Gore is his smile. At 6 feet 2 and 220 pounds, Gore is an intimidating presence, especially on the golf course where his frame is larger than the typical golfer. But his warm grin, amplified by eyes so tiny that the smile engulfs them, emits a comforting beam that welcomes anyone who sees it into Gore's world and transforms him into a giant teddy bear. "He's always been that way," said Sheldon Gore, Jason's father. "It shows he just enjoys what he's doing.

Tiger Woods spent his first nine holes Thursday afternoon at the Arnold Palmer Invitational still shaking off rust from his eight-month absence from competitive golf. Then Woods reminded everyone why he has won 14 professional majors. Playing before swarming crowds that came to Bay Hill largely to see him and playing partner Padraig Harrington, Woods overcame poor ball-striking to record four straight birdies on the back nine to shoot a two-under-par 68.

Throughout the Southern California Golf Assn. amateur championship at Lakeside Golf Club last weekend, recent Walker Cup selection Jason Gore of Valencia drew the largest gallery. That is, except for one hole. As Gore came up the 14th fairway, his gallery's attention quickly turned toward the adjacent seventh hole where former President George Bush was playing. "We weren't expecting a crowd," said one of the secret service agents who flanked Bush and his playing partners.

Gore's four-under 280 was complemented by Mike Walton's three-under 281 in leading Pepperdine to its first NCAA title since 1992, when it won the baseball and men's volleyball championships. Pepperdine played without Coach John Geiberger, who spent the week in his hotel battling chickenpox.

Jason Gore has played in the Nissan Open once before, but this time, things are different. For starters, he will tee off today at Riviera Country Club as a PGA Tour winner. He won the 84 Lumber Classic last September for his first career victory. That victory came with a two-year tour exemption and that means that for this installment of his hometown tournament, Gore -- a Valencia resident and Pepperdine graduate -- can go about his business without the added stress of trying to keep his card.

Jason Gore stood up to an excellent late-season field, and to the very pressure that wilted him three months ago at the U.S. Open. Most of all, he stood up to Sunday in Farmington, Pa. Gore, whose last-day unraveling already is part of Open lore, held off the 84 Lumber Classic field to win on the PGA Tour barely a month after being stuck in golf's minor leagues. Gore's four-stroke lead with five holes to play was down to one over runner-up Carlos Franco by No.

Get out the beer and chips, pull up the recliner. Jason Gore, the everyman's version of a PGA Tour pro, is playing in the final group on Sunday again. Gore, whose rags-to-riches-to-rags odyssey during the U.S. Open instantly made him into a fan favorite, shot a five-under-par 67 Saturday to open a two-shot lead over a group of five after three rounds of the 84 Lumber Classic at Farmington, Pa.

The 105th U.S. Open has become a numbers game, almost all of them black. There were nine players under par after the first round, five after the second, and now there is one.

After two days of the 105th U.S. Open, the clear-cut winner is the course at Pinehurst No. 2, while everything else resembles a rugby scrum. There stands a three-way tie for the lead, only five players are under par and the championship could take a dozen turns over the next 36 holes and 36 hours. Olin Browne, Retief Goosen and former Pepperdine star Jason Gore share the 36-hole lead at two-under 138, with K.J. Choi and Mark Hensby one shot back. That's Gore, G-O-R-E.
