This week: PGA Tour’s Waste Management Phoenix Open, Thursday through Sunday, TPC Scottsdale, Scottsdale, Ariz.

World ranking: 54th.

2010 earnings: $380,173 (35th on the PGA Tour).

Last tournament: The Puyallup golfer’s stay at his first WGC-Match Play Championship near Tucson was short-lived last week. He was ousted in the opening round by South Africa’s Ernie Els, 4-and-3. But, oh, how the schedule is kind. Moore gets the rare opportunity to sleep in his own bed this week – as do many of the guys who have relocated to Scottsdale – and play a course with which he’s familiar. After missing the cut the previous two years, Moore tied for sixth in 2009 (when it was the FBR Open) at 11-under 273 – the first of eight top-10 finishes in the past 12 months. Placing in the top 12 this week should get Moore back in the top 50 in the official world rankings, and lock the UNLV All-American into the field for the World Golf Championships-CA Championship at Doral starting March 11.

Tee time Thursday: 7:13 a.m. PST off the first tee with Zach Johnson and Nick Watney.
