Ryan Moore Biography

Ryan David Moore was born in Tacoma, Washington on 5th December 1982. He enjoyed a successful amateur career. In 2000 he was the runner-up in the U.S. Junior Championship and the following year he won the Washington high school individual championship.

In 2001, Moore accepted a scholarship to UNLV, where he lettered for four seasons for the Rebels and graduated in 2005 with a degree in communications and public relations. During the summer before his senior year of college (2004), Moore had one of the most impressive seasons for an amateur when he captured multiple titles in 2004, including the U.S. Amateur, the Western Amateur, the U.S. Amateur Public Links (also won in 2002) and the NCAA individual championship.

In 2005, Moore won the Haskins Award as the outstanding collegiate golfer in the nation. Later in the year he came 13th at The Masters, winning low amateur and a spot in the 2006 field. Moore's final tournament as an amateur was the 2005 U.S. Open at Pinehurst where he made the cut and tied 57th. Playing as a professional, on sponsors' exemptions, Moore earned a total of $686,250 in just 14 official PGA Tour events. This placed him the equivalent of 113th on the money list, making him the first player since Tiger Woods in 1996 to go from college to the PGA Tour in the same season without going to Q School.

In 2006, Moore played on the PGA Tour as a regular member, and his best outing was a tie for second at the Buick Championship in Connecticut. He was sidelined for two months in the spring following surgery on his left wrist, which kept him from competing in the Masters. He returned to the tour in late May and finished 81st on the 2006 money list with $1,222,118. With a top ten finish (tied for ninth) at the PGA Championship at Medinah on August 20, he broke into the top 100 in the world rankings for the first time, vaulting from 110th to 79th. He climbed as high as 68th in early September, and finished the year at 79th in the world.

In 2007, Moore finished second place at the Memorial Tournament, hosted by Jack Nicklaus in early June. He entered the event as an alternate and earned $648,000, the largest win of his professional career. Following this runner-up finish, his third as a professional, he climbed from 87th to 33rd on the PGA Tour money list, and his world ranking improved from 110th to 59th. A couple of days later, he qualified to play in the 2007 U.S. Open at Oakmont near Pittsburgh, where he shot 8-over in the first round and 3-over in the second. He missed the cut by one stroke. He finished the year with $1,544,901 in winnings, ranking him 59th on the PGA Tour money list and 51st in the FedEx Cup standings. Moore finished the year at 74th in the world rankings.

Moore reached the first playoff of his career in 2008 at the EDS Byron Nelson Championship, which he lost to Adam Scott on the third playoff hole. He picked up his largest prize of his career, winning $691,200 for second place. It was his fourth runner-up finish on the PGA Tour in as many seasons.

Moore continued to have pain in his left wrist and took time off at various points during the 2008 season because of a sore shoulder and to improve his fitness. He ended the year with $1,214,900 in winnings, ranking him 88th on the PGA Tour money list and 87th in the FedEx Cup standings; his world ranking fell to 158.

Moore's inconsistent golf continued in the first half of 2009. In his first 16 tournaments, Moore missed the cut eight times, including four times by a single stroke. In March and April, Moore made four consecutive cuts, with two top-20 finishes. In May, Moore only managed one made cut in The Players Championship, where he struggled on the weekend to a 71st place finish, last among those making the cut.

After missing the cut at the Memorial Tournament, Moore qualified for the 2009 U.S. Open at Bethpage Black with a tie for seventh place at sectional qualifying in Columbus, Ohio where he finished in a tie for tenth place. Subsequently, his world golf ranking rebounded from 193rd to 152nd. Later in 2009, Moore won his first career PGA Tour event at the Wyndham Championship, defeating Kevin Stadler and Jason Bohn in a sudden-death playoff, earning $936,000. He finished the season having reached the top 50 of the world rankings and in 31st place on the PGA Tour money list.

In 2010, Moore had a consistent year, with six top ten finishes and finished the season ranked 32nd on the money list. He appeared in all four of the golf majors for the first time.
