World ranking: 76th.

2009 earnings: $1,974,171 (35th on the PGA Tour).

Last tournament: The Puyallup golfer had a nice
21/2-week break after being eliminating at the penultimate stop in the
FedEx Cup playoffs at the BMW Championship (tied for 30th, 2-over 286).

Ryan Moore at BMW Championship, 4th Rd.

This week: PGA Tour’s BMW Championship, Thursday through Sunday, Cog Hill Golf and Country Club, Lemont, Ill.

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

Position: Moore (2-over 286) finished tied for 30th behind winner Tiger Woods.

Recap: The Puyallup golfer posted one of the day’s
best rounds (five birdies, two bogeys), including a near-ace on the
219-yard, par-3 sixth. He ended up making a 31/2-footer for birdie,
then finished off his round with a final one on the par-5 ninth. Moore
did not advance to the Tour Championship starting Sept. 24 in Atlanta.

Ryan Moore at BMW Championship, 3rd Rd.

This week: PGA Tour’s BMW Championship, Thursday through Sunday, Cog Hill Golf and Country Club, Lemont, Ill.

Third-round score: 4-over-par 75.

Position: Moore (5-over 218) is tied for 53rd, 21 strokes behind leader Tiger Woods (197).

Recap: Unless Moore comes up with a final round
close to the magical “59,” his stay in the FedEx Cup playoffs will end
Sunday (Woods did have a 62 on Saturday … so it can happen). The place
he needs to be to advance is in the top 12 – at 208 – which is nine
strokes in front of

Ryan Moore at BMW Championship, 2nd Rd.

This week: PGA Tour’s BMW Championship, Thursday through Sunday, Cog Hill Golf and Country Club, Lemont, Ill.

Second-round score: 1-over-par 72.

Position: Moore (1-over 143) is tied for 35th, eight strokes behind co-leaders Tiger Woods and Mark Wilson (135).

Recap: Too many early bogeys – five of them, in
fact – for the Puyallup golfer, who needs to move up at least 20 spots
to get in position to advance to the final tournament of the FedEx Cup
playoffs, the Tour Championship in Atlanta. Moore had five front-nine
bogeys (Nos. 1, 3, 5, 6, 9), with

Ryan Moore at BMW Championship, 1st Rd.

This week: PGA Tour’s BMW Championship, Thursday through Sunday, Cog Hill Golf and Country Club, Lemont, Ill.

First-round score: Even-par 71.

Position: Moore is tied for 29th, five strokes behind co-leaders Steve Marino and Rory Sabbatini (66).

Recap: Up and down, round and round – that is the
best way to sum up the Puyallup golfer’s day. After a double bogey on
the par-3 second – his 11th hole – Moore sat at 2-over. Then he rallied
with three birdies in a four-hole stretch (Nos. 4, 5 and 7) – two
on 15-foot putts – to move

Ryan Moore at BMW Championship, preview

This week: PGA Tour’s BMW Championship, Thursday through Sunday, Cog Hill Golf and Country Club, Lemont, Ill.

World ranking: 78th.

2009 earnings: $1,930,577 (29th on the PGA Tour).

Last tournament: After his tied-for-70th finish to
begin the FedEx Cup playoffs, and missing the cut at last week’s
Deutsch Bank Championship (even-par 142), he sits at 48th in the points
– and needs a high finish to get into the Tour Championship in Atlanta.
What will it take? The Moore camp thinks, worst-case, he needs a top-10
finish to secure a spot among the top 30

4th

Ryan Moore at Deutsche Bank, 1st Rd.

This week: PGA Tour’s Deutsche Bank Championship, Thursday through Sunday, TPC Boston, Norton, Mass.

First-round score: 1-over-par 72.

Position: Moore is tied for 76th, nine strokes behind co-leaders Jim Furyk and Steve Stricker (63).

Recap: A pair of double bogeys in the first five
holes put the Puyallup golfer quickly in a hole. It took two shots to
get out of greenside rough on the par-3 third for one double bogey, and
the other came two holes later, a par-4 and the most difficult hole on
the course, he hit his drive so far right, he

Last tournament: Moore finished tied for 70th at
The Barclays (8-over-par 292) in the first event of the Fed Ex Cup
playoffs. Subsequently, he feel 13 spots in the points ladder, to 35 –
and still comfortably in reach of reaching The Tour Championship in
late September in Atlanta. The Puyallup golfer is still in line for
setting a personal-best scoring average (70.74 strokes), eclipsing the
70.69 set in
