This week: PGA Tour’s AT&T National, Thursday through Sunday, Congressional Country Club, Bethesda, Md.
World ranking: 122nd.
2009 earnings: $848,339 (61st on the PGA Tour).
Last tournament: Hear that ‘cha-ching, cha-ching’
sound coming from Puyallup? That is the money Ryan Moore has earned the
past two weeks – a total of $402,600 for top-1o places at the U.S. Open
and last week at the Travelers Championship (17-under 263, tied for
fourth, season-best $248,000 paycheck). In fact, based on last year’s
125th spot on the money list that secured full-time privileges on the
PGA Tour – $852, 752 by Martin Laird – all Moore really needs to do
this week to exceed that, and essentially clinch his tour card for
2010, is make his third consecutive cut Friday. A win would earn him a
spot in the British Open later this month in Turnberry, Scotland.
Tee time Thursday: 4:22 a.m. PDT off the 10th tee with Jeff Klauk and Jeff Maggert.
