Arizona sophomore Jason Gore, a former standout at Hart High, won his second consecutive Pacific 10 Conference men’s golf championship Wednesday in a three-way playoff at Tucson, Ariz.
Gore made two pars to outlast Chris Stutts of Arizona State, who bogeyed the first playoff hole, and Birk Nelson of Oregon State, who bogeyed the second one.
Stutts shot a three-under-par 69 to make up three strokes on Nelson and Gore, the third-round leaders, and forge a three-way tie at 287 on the Tucson National course.
