This week: PGA Tour’s Farmers Insurance Open, Thursday through Sunday, Torrey Pines North and South Courses, San Diego.

World rankings: Moore is 61st, Stanley is 87th and Kelly is 352nd.

2012 earnings
: Stanley has $695,575 (sixth on the PGA Tour), Kelly has $23,408 (115th on the PGA Tour) and Moore has $18,512 (119th on the PGA Tour).

Last tournament
: Moore missed the cut at last week’s Farmers Insurance Open (1-under 143), but returns to a golf course he is very familiar with since he used to live right down the street from it. He has made the cut at the Phoenix Open in the past three seasons, including a tied-for-sixth in 2009 and a tied-for-14th in 2010. … A few days have past since Stanley squandered a three-stroke lead on the 72nd hole of the Farmers Insurance Open (16-under 272) and lost in a playoff to Brandt Snedeker. The Bellarmine Prep product says he has refocused for a debut at this tournament – and could not have a better grouping for the first two days with Seattle’s Fred Couples, a longtime PGA Tour veteran. … Kelly missed the final-day cut at the Farmers Insurance Open (2-over 218), but still made $10,920. And the next day, he was co-medalist for Monday qualifying at this event to get into the field for back-to-back years. He tied for 57th last season.

Tee times Thursday
: Stanley at 6:48 a.m. PST off the 10th tee; Moore at 7:51 a.m. PST off the No. 1 tee; and Kelly at 12:10 p.m. PST off the 10th tee.
