Capping a remarkable three months since first grabbing the golf world’s attention at the U.S. Open, Jason Gore today was (just barely) able to hang on to a large back-nine lead to win the 84 Lumber Classic on Sunday. (Details are available from this AP story.)

My take on Gore’s recent success is that it proves, to paraphrase Yogi Berra, that half of golf is 90% mental. Though I suspect Gore has played some of the best golf of his life over the last three month, I also suspect that the confidence he gained by playing so well for 3 rounds at Pinehurst has been the key to his elevated performance.
