This week: The Barclays, Thursday through Sunday, Bethpage Black, Farmingdale, N.Y.

Moore’s first-round score: 2-under-par 69.

Stanley’s first-round score: Even-par 71.

Kelly’s first-round score: 3-over 74.

Position: Moore is tied for 26th, Stanley is tied for 52nd and Kelly is tied for 97th – all trailing leader Padraig Harrington (64).

Recap: On a very long and challenging layout, Moore got off to a good start (birdies at No. 3, 7) – and finished strong by canning an 18-foot putt for birdie on the finishing hole. … Stanley’s real highlight came on the easiest par 5 on the course – No. 4. His 5-iron approach from 205 yards landed close, and he sank the 10-footer for eagle. After that, he made three bogeys. … Unlike his local counterparts, Kelly had not played a competitive round at this venue before Thursday. And he struggled, done in by a costly double bogey at No. 13, a par 5 (penalty stroke after drive went out-of-bounds right).

Tee times Friday: Kelly at 5:49 a.m. PDT, Moore at 9:11 a.m. PDT and Stanley at 10:06 a.m. PDT. All start off the 10th tee.
