A new sponsor in tow, and three top-10 finishes in hand, including a
third-place finish at the WGC-HSBC Champions event in China has
Puyallup’s Ryan Moore.
Now the latest good news: He’s in the top 50 in the world rankings for the first time in his career.
He’s seen a huge jump in 2009, starting the season ranked 163rd in
the world. A recent surge had him at 75th entering last week’s
tournament, but a high finish against a strong field were the two
biggest reasons for the move to 49th.
The PGA Tour season has one more tournament this week – Children’s
Miracle Network in Orlando, Fla. – and if Moore remains in that spot,
he’ll earn an automatic berth to the British Open next year at St.
