This week: PGA Tour/European Tour WGC-HSBC Champions, Thursday through Sunday, Sheshan International Golf Club, Shanghai, China.
Fourth-round score: 4-under-par 68.
Position: Moore (15-under 273) finished alone in third, two strokes behind winner Phil Mickelson (271).
Recap: What a debut in the World Golf Championships
events for the Puyallup golfer, who played in front of the
Mickelson-Tiger Woods grouping. He was solid throughout the round,
birdied the 17th hole and, by his own admission, should have finished
with another one to tie Ernie Else for second, saying afterward, “I hit
a heck of a putt on 18 … I really can’t believe it didn’t go in.” He
earned a paycheck of $430,078, and will move into the top 50 in the
world rankings Monday, making him eligible for next year’s British Open.
Next: 2010 SBS Championship starting Jan. 7 in Hawaii.
