Why Moore’s not at the Masters

One of Puyallup golfer Ryan Moore’s goals for 2008 was to earn a
spot in this week’s Masters tournament at Augusta National Golf Club in
Augusta, Ga.

Moore last played at the Masters in 2005 when he was the low amateur
(1-under 285), tying for 13th. He had to forfeit his spot the following
year because of a wrist injury, and hasn’t been back.

One of the requirements used to be that the top three money leaders
for the season leading up to the Masters earned spots in the year’s
first major championship. That was eliminated two years ago.

The only way Moore could get into the Masters this year was to be in
the top 50 in the world rankings the week prior to the tournament.
Moore is currently 90th.
