This week: PGA Tour’s Waste Management Phoenix Open, Thursday through Sunday, TPC Scottsdale, Scottsdale, Ariz.
First-round score: 5-under-par 66.
Position: Moore is tied for seventh, four strokes behind leader Camilo Villegas (62).
Recap: Easily his best round in this tournament, the Puyallup golfer blistered TPC Scottsdale’s back nine holes (five birdies, no bogeys), including back-to-back birdies to finish up. Moore decided to lay up on the short par-4 17th, and almost holed out his approach. The par-4 18th ranked as the second-hardest hole Thursday, but Moore made a 13-foot putt to move into the top 10 on the leaderboard.
Tee time Friday: 11:53 a.m. PST off the 10th tee.
