MARICOPA, Ariz—Taylor Moore of Edmond, Oklahoma, held on to his second round lead, shooting 70 in the final round. Moore finished at 201 (-11) and won by three shots over Trevor Simsby and AJ McInerney. It capped a strong trip to Arizona as Moore finished third at last week’s Patriot All-America at Wigwam Golf Club.
MOORE: “I came off a solid week last week at the Patriot and I felt like I was ready to win. I played solid. I tried to hit it in the middle of the greens all week and give myself some birdie looks.”
On how this win prepares him for the spring, Moore says: “Obviously it puts me in a good spot. It was good to come down and play some rounds. I took some time off after the fall season and it is nice to know my game is right there heading into the spring season.”
