Ryan Moore at Frys.com Open, 2nd Rd.

This week: PGA Tour’s Frys.com Open, Thursday through Sunday, Grayhawk Golf Club, Scottsdale, Ariz.

Second-round score: 5-under-par 65.

Position: Moore (9-under 131) is tied for fourth, two strokes behind co-leaders Rickie Fowler and Greg Owen (129).

Recap: Hmm … could he make noise toward a second
victory in his final PGA Tour event in 2009. Sure seems that way. A
clean scorecard (five birdies, no bogeys) had another sudden surge
(three birdies in a row at Nos. 11-13), and another birdie on the
difficult 515-yard, par-4 18th where he canned an 11-foot putt.

Tee time Saturday:

round before an untimely two-putt bogey at the par-4 seventh.

fifth top-10 finish Sunday at the Justin Timberlake Shriners Hospitals
for Children Open (16-under 268, tied-for-seventh) – and first since
winning the Wyndham Championship in August. And just like last week in
Las Vegas, he travels to a course he should know fairly well – the
Raptor Course – since north Scottsdale is where he owns a house, just
10 minutes from

Recap: A third-hole birdie lifted Moore into a
share of the lead – briefly. After that, the contenders took off, and
the Puyallup golfer leveled off. Back-to-back bogeys on the eighth and
ninth holes – including a three-putt
