For those of you who haven't heard, in response to a tweet by Jason Gore, other pros and fans have been pushing for Gore to receive a sponsors exemption to the Northern Trust Open at Riveria. Tournament officials have taken notice and responded on Twitter that a decision on who receives the two exemptions is coming soon. It would be really cool for Gore to get one as this is his hometown and the event obviously means a lot to him. I, for one, am pulling for him.

I have been tweeting & retweeting to the @NTrustOpen twitter account.  Any GolfWRX.com members who are on twitter should be bombarding the @NTrustOpen timeline with requests to get @JasonGore59 a sponsor's exemption to the @NTrustOpen !

Jason did a great job with our chat & is now one of us.  Let's support him and help get him a sponsor's exemption.  Who knows, might be the tournament that gets him back up on the big tour and he won't forget all those who helped him.


Thanks

If you don't use twitter but have a FaceBook page post this





There's a grassroots effort over on Twitter to help get Jason Gore ( @JasonGore59 )  a sponsor's exemption into the Northern Trust Open at Riveria.  If you are a golf fan who uses twitter & wants to help, tweet to @NTOpen and let them know that you to would like to see Jason Gore play in their tournament.


Thanks!

Up to you how often.  You don't want to upset your followers who aren't into golf.

Up to you as to how often.  As for what to include  @NTOpen & @Jasonore59 for sure & say you would like to see him get a sposor's exemption.  Maybe ask your followers to "retweet".

Follow @NTOpen & Retweeting tweets that mention Jason too


thanks, guys!

why stop at Jason Gore getting an exemption into a golf tournament??? let's test out this newfound power of ours. Look i'm not saying world domination.....YET.....But we could at the very least topple a few governments, get friendly's inserted in puppet regimes, and then free golf for everyone. I'm just saying, obviously we have influence

Well it appears to have worked, Norhern Trust tweeted that in response to the fans, they have awarded Gore an exemption. I'm happy for him that it worked out.

I don't use twitter and I got off "fake-book" a long time ago.   I hope Jason Gore gets the exception.  Actually, anybody but John Daly and I would be satisfied.

As a follow up to Jason getting into the Northern true Open, we have a prize to be awarded to one of you guys/gals who tweeted for Jason.  Jason has donated his "gamer Gore-rilla head cover right off his driver.  Tour used!  

The way we will determine the winner is, everyone that made a tweet for Jason to get a NTOpen sponsor's exemption will be eligible.  Send me an e mail with a screen shot of your tweet.  We will have a random/blind draw for the cover.


e mail the screen shot  of your tweet to   greg@golfwrx.com


Good luck!
