Secret Golf Debuts Jason Gore Player Channel

2005 Web.com Tour Player of the Year becomes 11th player with live video content

(JACKSONVILLE, Fla.) – Jason Gore represents a different kind of success story than some of his contemporaries on the PGA Tour. In addition to his accomplishments as a professional golfer, he’s a loving father, a musician with a large collection of guitars, a mixed-martial arts enthusiast and has entertained a broadcasting career when his playing days on Tour are over. 



Today Gore adds one more talent to the list — that as a video host — as Secret Golf announced his addition to the lineup of Player Channels now available on secretgolf.com.

Gore has experienced a number of highlights in his Tour career. After an exemplary amateur career that resulted in a pair of Pac 10 Conference titles, a California Amateur crown at Pebble Beach and the California State Open, Gore has had a nice career in professional golf. He’s played in the final grouping on Sunday in a major championship (2005 U.S. Open), won on the PGA Tour at the 2005 84 Lumber Classic, and collected an all-time leading seven victories on the Web.com Tour. He’s also one of the rare players who has ever shot a sub-60 score in a Tour-sponsored event, firing a 59 on Friday at the 2005 Cox Classic in Omaha, a Web.com event he would eventually win.  



Gore started playing guitar just by listening to the Dave Matthews Band. He’s now not only friends with all the members of that popular group but he also owns 19 guitars of his own. The personable Californian who resides in Valencia also has played on stage with Steel Panther at the House of Blues Hollywood and with Kelly James in Omaha, Neb. 



His wit, wisdom and unique perspective on both life and his career in golf only adds value to the behind-the-scenes backstage pass consumers receive when they subscribe on secretgolf.com.

Gore becomes the 11th member of Team Secret Golf to have live content on the website. 



“This is something totally different for me but I was excited to share my stories when Steve (Elkington) asked me to be part of the Secret Golf team,” Gore said. “I’ve had an interesting career and I think my perspective will be well received by golf fans and consumers of our video content. I’ve always loved playing in front of big crowds and now I have a chance to reach a huge audience with secretgolf.com."


Gore joins World Golf Hall of Fame member Jackie Burke, 1995 PGA Championship winner Steve Elkington, two-time LPGA Tour Player of the Year Stacy Lewis, 2013 PGA Championship winner Jason Dufner, 2016 U.S. Women’s Open champion Brittany Lang as well as PGA Tour professionals Ryan Palmer, Colt Knost, Jason Kokrak and Pat Perez and former Tour player turned instructor Bradley Hughes. 


”Jason Gore’s Player Channel is fantastic. He’s so relatable to people. He matches his swing thoughts with other athletic sports, “ said Elkington, the co-founder of secretgolf.com. “Jason is a big guy that understands his strengths. His infectious personality is impossible not to love.”


Other Player Channels to debut in the remainder of  2017 include Mexico’s Gaby Lopez, a LPGA rookie in 2016, LPGA and Web.com Tour members Gerina and Martin Piller, Brian Harman, the winner of this year's Wells Fargo Championship on the PGA Tour, Patton Kizzire of the PGA Tour who was the 2015 Web.com Tour Player of the Year and Ethan Tracy of the Web.com Tour.



Each member of the Secret Golf Player team will have a dedicated channel, which allows fans to have a direct connection to their favorite players.
