This week: PGA Tour’s Waste Management Phoenix Open, Thursday through Sunday, TPC Scottsdale, Scottsdale, Ariz.
Fourth-round score: 3-under-par 68.
Position: Moore (10-under 274) finished tied for 14th, six strokes behind winner Hunter Mahan (268).
Recap: At one point, Moore had dropped three strokes to 4-over for the tournament after his bogey on the 12th hole. He then made six birdies the rest fo the way, including one at the raucous par-3 16th where he sank a 9-foot putt to get back to even-par on his round. He then strung together three birdies in a row (Nos. 2-4) to get back as high as tied for 11th on the leaderboard. As far as earning a spot to the WGC-CA Championship at Doral in two weeks, Moore needed to get back into the top 50 in the world rankings. He’ll likely wake up today in 51st. He’s not playing next week’s Honda Classic in Florida, but still could move into the top 50 and get in if somebody directly ahead of him does has a low finish or a missed cut.
Next: Transitions Championship starting March 18 at Innisbrook Resort in Palm Harbor, Fla.
