Moore wins Wyndham play-off

Ryan Moore, a former US Amateur champion, has finally broken through with his first PGA Tour victory.

Former US Amateur champion Ryan Moore has finally broken through on the US PGA tour .
On Sunday he triumphed at the Greensboro’s Wyndham Championship after winning a three-way play-off against Kevin Stadler and Jason Bohn.
Moore birdied the third extra hole to see off Stadler after Bohn had been eliminated two holes earlier.
Moore puickerd up 500 FedEx Cup points for winning the final tournament before the playoffs start later this week, advancing from 76th in the standings to 22nd with his victory.
But his maiden win on the Tour did not come easily.
“It felt like an uphill battle,” said Moore, who turned pro in 2005. “The whole time I’ve been on the PGA Tour, I just haven’t been healthy, haven’t felt like myself until I really kind of got some good momentum (finishing tied for 10th) at the US Open. Today I really felt like myself again over the golf ball, and just kind of getting some confidence back in the putter and every aspect of the game. That’s really carried through to this week.”
Moore, Stadler and Bohn each finished on16-under for the tournament, one ahead of Spain’s Sergio Garcia, who is sure to be disappointed with his final day round of 70.
The Ryder Cup star was loose on the back nine but could still have made the four-way shootout had his bunker shot at the 18th not held up at the edge of the hole.
“I wish I could blame it on that but, unfortunately, it happened before that,” Garcia said.
Moore signed for a 65 in his fourth round, while Bohn hit a superb 62 to charge into contention from way back.
England’s Justin Rose carded a 68 to take a share of fifth place in this $5.1million event.
Chris Riley endured a disappointing day having started it atop the leaderboard alongside Garcia, hitting a four-over 74 and winding up five shots off the pace.
