This week: PGA Tour’s Buick Open, Thursday through Sunday, Warwick Hills Golf and Country Club, Grand Blanc, Mich.
Moore’s first-round score: 3-under-par 69.
Kelly’s score: Even-par 72.
Position: Moore is tied for 44th, and Kelly is in a group in 116th. Steve Lowery leads after his opening 63.
Recap: This is a course to make birdies on. Only 25
of the 156 golfers didn’t break par, so that was the good news for the
Pierce County products. Moore, the Puyallup golfer, opened with a par-5
bogey, then made four birdies the rest of the way, including three on
par-5 holes. … Kelly, a Tacoma native, was headed for an over-par round
after bogeys at Nos. 2 and 6, but made up for it when he made a 52-foot
birdie putt for eagle on the par-5 seventh.
Moore’s tee time Friday: 5:12 a.m. PDT off the 10th tee.
Kelly’s tee time Friday: 5:48 a.m. PDT off the first tee.
