Ryan Moore at Barclays, 4th Rd.

This week: PGA Tour’s Barclays Classic, Thursday through Sunday, Liberty National Golf Club, Jersey City, N.J.

Fourth-round score: 2-under-par 69.

Position: Moore (8-over 292) finished tied for 70th.

Recap: The Puyallup golfer had no trouble this week
making birdies – he had five of them in each of the third and fourth
rounds over the weekend. And on Sunday, he eliminated the “big” numbers
– double and triple bogeys to post one of the better early-wave rounds.
His last birdie came on the drivable par-4 16th, and he made it to the
green from the

Ryan Moore at The Barclays, 3rd Rd.

This week: PGA Tour’s Barclays Classic, Thursday through Sunday, Liberty National Golf Club, Jersey City, N.J.

Third-round score: 6-over-par-77.

Position: Moore (10-over 223) is tied for 75th, 19 strokes behind co-leaders Paul Goydos and Steve Marino (204).

Recap: The Puyallup golfer might have hit a little
bit of a wall following last week’s win at the Wyndham Championship in
North Carolina. In the past two rounds, Moore has had six double bogeys
or worse, including three Saturday. It started on the 10th hole where
his drive found the right rough, and he had to punch out,

Ryan Moore at The Barclays, 2nd Rd.

This week: The PGA Tour’s Barclays Classic, Thursday through Sunday, Liberty National Golf Club, Jersey City, N.J.

Second-round score: 7-over-par 78.

Position: Moore (4-over 146) is tied for 56th, 12 strokes behind rookie Webb Simpson (134), who leads.

Recap: What a nasty day to have to play a round in
the FedEx Cup playoffs. Winds were swirling off the Hudson River, and
rain fell throughout the day. The Puyallup golfer made three double
bogeys – on the par-3 fourth (two shots to get out of greenside
bunker), on the par-5 eighth (drive went right and out

Ryan Moore at The Barclays, 1st Rd.

This week: PGA Tour’s Barclays Classic, Thursday through Sunday, Liberty National Golf Club, Jersey City, N.J.

First-round score: 3-under-par 68.

Position: Moore is tied for 11th, three strokes behind co-leaders Sergio Garcia, Paul Goydos and Steve Marino.

Recap: The circumstances – new course, playing the
first round after winning a first PGA Tour title last week – might have
called for a letdown. But Moore, the Puyallup resident, continued his
stellar play with another under-par round. And he surged late with
birdies on No. 7 (17-foot putt) and No. 8 (7-footer) for his 15th round

Moore ‘pretty excited’ about first PGA Tour win

By the time I spoke with Puyallup’s Ryan Moore by telephone on
Sunday night, he had just finished up a whirlwind tour of interviews
with television and radio stations.

You could hear it in his voice, he was worn out. He took an hour for
dinner, then started a continuous stream of answering questions, all
the way to close to midnight on the East Coast.

Obviously, it took him a while – 112 PGA Tour tournaments, including
107 as a professional – to earn that maiden victory. Like many who have
followed the Puyallup
