This week: BMW Championship, Thursday through Sunday, Crooked Stick Golf Club, Carmel, Ind.

Moore’s third-round score: 1-over-par 73.

Stanley’s third-round score: 3-under 69.

Position: Moore (11-under 205) is tied for 12th, and Stanley (9-under 207) is tied for 18th – all trailing co-leaders Phil Mickelson and Vijay Singh (200).

Recap: Much like the third round of last week’s Deutsche Bank Championship, Moore lost ground to the leaders Saturday with a 73 playing in the final group. Simply, he just couldn’t keep up the birdie-making pace of the first two days (made 12 combined Thursday and Friday; two Saturday). Moore got back to even-par with his birdie at No. 15, but dropped a shot on the final hole when he could not get up and down from left of the green, missing a 7-foot putt for par. Heading into the final round, Moore has ground to make up to advance to the Tour Championship (ranked 32nd in the live points standings). … Meanwhile, Stanley keeps holding steady at No. 30 in the playoff points, which is the cut to make the Tour Championship. His highlight Saturday was an eagle at the par-5 ninth (5-iron approach to 8 feet), and he made three more birdies on the back nine holes.

Tee times Sunday: Stanley at 10:15 a.m. PDT with Justin Rose, and Moore at 10:35 a.m. PDT with Padraig Harrington. Both locals go off the first tee.
