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 product, it was only a matter of time, and it
finally came Sunday at the Wyndham Championship in Greensboro, N.C.
He moved up to 73rd in the official world golf rankings Monday.
