In 2005, Jason Gore was a sectional qualifier in the U.S. Open at Pinehurst and nearly won the championship. Now 15-years later, he works for the USGA as the Player Liaison, where he has the task of providing a player's perspective on course setup at this year's championship at Winged Foot. With Bo and Farrell, Gore talks about that magical week at Pinehurst, his new job, his playing days and the rough at Winged Foot. Gore's colleagues at the USGA, Steven Schloss and Charlie Howe, join the episode to offer their unique perspectives on the U.S. Open. As the Chief People Officer, Schloss is the man tasked with leading a 125-year-old organization to greater diversity and inclusion during a time marked by racial strife. Howe, the Championship Director, speaks with gratitude of the bonds he forms every two years at a U.S. Open site and the challenges of holding a tournament during a pandemic.
