Puyallup’s Ryan Moore is a PGA Tour winner at last.
Perhaps overdue after sweeping aside amateur golf in the summer of
2004 by winning every major tournament, Moore survived a three-man,
three-hole playoff Sunday to win the Wyndham Championship in
He rolled in a 9-foot birdie putt on the 507-yard, par-4 18th after
hitting an exquisite 6-iron from 181 yards out from the right side of
the fairway to defeat Kevin Stadler, who ended up making a bogey.
Jason Bohn was the third member of the sudden-death extra session, but he bogeyed the 18th hole when the trio began the playoff.
Moore was solid all throughout the playoff. He had a chance to win
on the first playoff hole, but his 13-foot birdie chance drifted right.
Stadler got up-and-down from a greenside bunker to match Moore’s par.
