This week: WGC Accenture Match Play Championship, Wednesday through Sunday, Ritz-Carlton Golf Course of Dove Mountain, Marana, Ariz.
World ranking: 42nd.
2011 earnings: $280,440 (42nd on the PGA Tour).
Last tournament: Moore shot four under-par rounds, and finished tied for fourth at last week’s Northern Trust Open (8-under-par 276) for his best finish of 2011.
2011 Match Play: This will be Moore’s second appearance in this event – he lost in the first round last year to Ernie Els, 4 and 3. His opponent Wednesday, Italy’s Francesco Molinari, also lost his opener last year in 21 holes to Zach Johnson. Both 20-somethings are accomplished match-play golfers – Moore, the No. 12 seed in the Jones bracket, is a former U.S. Amateur champion while Molinari, the fifth seed, was on Europe’s Ryder Cup-winning team last fall (and has also captured his country’s match-play championship as well).
Tee time Wednesday: 9:55 a.m. PST. off the first tee.
