This week: PGA Tour’s Northern Trust Open, Thursday through Sunday, Riviera Country Club, Los Angeles.
Moore’s fourth-round score: Even-par 71.
Position: Moore (3-over 287) finished 71st, 18 strokes behind winner Phil Mickelson (269).
Recap: The one thing you can count on with Moore,
he gives it an earnest effort, even when it’s time to get the
tournament over and done with. The Puyallup golfer fell to 5-over with
two early bogeys, but rallied with three birdies in a six-hole stretch
(Nos. 1, 5 and 6). In fact, he birdied the par-3 sixth in three of the
four rounds, including Sunday when his tee shot from 199 yards out
landed close, and he made a 9-foot putt. Moore took home $12,474.
Next: Moore did not make the field at the WGC Match
Play Championships in Arizona, and is not entered at the Mayakoba Golf
Classic in Mexico. The next full-field event is the Honda Classic
starting March 5 in Palm Beach, Fla.
