Home comforts help Moore flourish in Vegas
LOS VEGAS: Home comforts and a busy social schedule this week have so far helped American Ryan Moore into a three-way tie for the lead at the Las Vegas Open while keeping his golfing thoughts to a bare minimum away from the course.
The Las Vegas resident, who studied at the nearby University of Nevada-Las Vegas, fired a flawless six-under 65 in Saturday’s third round to end the day joint top with Swede Jonas Blixt and Zimbabwean Brendon de Jonge at 19-under 194.
“This week has actually been a pretty busy week for me,” Moore s aidafter piling up six birdies in a blemish-free display at the TPC Summerlin where he regularly plays.
“I have a bunch of my wife’s family in town and then a bunch of my family is in town, so really every night we’ve been going out doing stuff – going out to dinner, seeing movies, doing stuff every day.
“It’s actually been kind of nice; it’s kind of kept my mind off it (the tournament) for the most part.”
Saturday night was going to be no different for Moore, who will be bidding for the second PGA Tour victory of his career in the final round. — Reuters
