Ryan Moore Hits Vegas Jackpot

Ryan Moore won the Shriners Hospitals for Children Open on Sunday for his second PGA Tour title, birdieing the par-5 16th hole to take the outright lead and finishing with two pars for a 5-under 66 and a one-stroke victory over Brendon de Jonge.

Tied with de Jonge and Jonas Blixt after the third round, Moore finished at 24-under 260 at TPC Summerlin and earned $810,000 in the Fall Series opener. Moore also won the 2009 Wyndham Championship.

De Jonge shot a 67. Jason Day pulled within three strokes of Moore and de Jonge with a birdie on No. 16, but closed with a double bogey on the par-4 18th. He had a 65 to finish fourth at 18 under.

Moore birdied the second and third holes to take a one-stroke lead over playing competitors Blixt and de Jonge, and birdied the seventh hole to move two shots ahead.

De Jonge pulled even with birdies on Nos. 8 and 9 and they remained tied through 15, going to the 16th tee at 23 under.

Bill Lunde was fifth at 15 under after a 66. He jumped from 157th to 128th on the money list, with the final top 125 getting tour cards for next season.

John Daly, tied for sixth at 10 under after a season-best 63 on Friday, followed a 15-over 86 on Saturday with a 6-over 77 on Sunday to finish last at 11-over 295. He dropped from 132nd to 137th on the money list.
