This week: The British Open, Thursday through Sunday, Royal St. George’s Golf Club, Sandwich, Kent, England.

Moore’s fourth-round score: 1-under-par 69.

Stanley’s fourth-round score: 4-over 74.

Position: Moore (8-over 288) finished tied for 28th, and Stanley (11-over 291) finished tied for 44th – all behind winner Darren Clarke, of Northern Ireland (275).

Recap: Riding one of only five under-par rounds Sunday, Moore recorded his best major-championship finish since last year’s Masters (tied-for-14th) – and best ever showing at The British Open. Afterward, Moore said arguably it was his best round of the season. Who would argue, considering the golfers were facing the strong wind gusts during a turbulent week of weather. Birdies at the second, sixth and ninth holes put Moore at 2 under at the turn, but he needed a finishing birdie to shoot 69. He made $56,863. … Stanley, too, was in good shape at the turn – 1 under, but opened the back nine with bogeys at the 10th, 11th and 12th holes. The Bellarmine Prep product put as much stress on his putting as he had all week, hitting just eight of 18 greens in regulation.

Next: Moore is in the field for the RBC Canadian Open starting Thursday at Shaughnessy Golf Club in Vancouver, B.C. Stanley will be off until the Greenbrier Classic starting July 28.
