Jason Gore to make cut; Max Homa may not

It appears at least one of two local golfers will get to play through the weekend at the Northern Trust Open.

Hart High graduate Jason Gore fought his way to 2-under and a tie for 32nd place on Friday at Riviera Country Club to put himself three shots clear of the projected 36-hole cutline at the PGA Tour tournament taking place down the road in Pacific Palisades.

This will be Gore’s first PGA Tour cut made since July of 2012 at the True South Classic.

Also playing this week is Valencia graduate Max Homa, who sits a 2-over and tied for 79th after 34 holes of play.

He wasn’t able to finish his round on Friday as play was suspended due to darkness.

Homa will need to birdie one of his two remaining holes early this morning when play resumes to get to the projected cut of 1-over. He’ll play holes 8 and 9, which are both par 4s.

Homa shot a 2-over 73 on Thursday in his opening round and he played an even-par round through his first 16 holes on Friday.

This is Homa’s first appearance in the Northern Trust Open and his fifth career PGA Tour start.

For Gore, this is his eighth time playing the annual Los Angeles-area event, which he gained access to by winning a Monday qualifier at Industry Hills Golf Club.

Gore shot an even-par 71 on Thursday and carded a 2-under on Friday with four birdies and two bogeys.

The Hart alumnus is seven strokes behind the leader Sang-Moon Bae.

The tournament will concluded after two more rounds played on Saturday and Sunday.
