This week: Arnold Palmer Invitational, Thursday through Sunday, Bay Hill Club and Lodge, Orlando, Fla.

World rankings: Moore is 44th, and Stanley is 92nd.

2013 earnings: Moore has $503,070 (45th on the PGA Tour), and Stanley has $162,456 (115th on the PGA Tour).

Last tournament: It is very rare for Moore to go back-to-back tournaments without posting at least one round in the 60s. The past two weeks – a tied-for-53rd effort at the WGC-Cadillac Championship (4-over-par 292) and last week’s missed cut at the Tampa Bay Championship (10-over 152) – he has been in a scoring funk. Hitting greens in regulation (64.3 percent of the time, ranking 134th) and putting (ranks 124th in total putting) have cropped up as recent issues. After this event, he will take next week off before heading to the Valero Texas Open as his pre-Masters tune-up. … Stanley returns to the site of his first PGA Tour start in 2007 as an amateur at Clemson. He loves this tournament, and placed tied for 12th (2-under 286) in his last start at Bay Hill in 2011.

Tee times Thursday: Moore at 5:51 a.m. PDT off the 10th tee, and Stanley at 10:19 a.m. PDT off the 10th tee.
