When Ryan Moore isn’t playing golf on tour, he enjoys pondering business ventures — he became a minority owner in Scratch Golf in late 2009 (but relinquished his equity interest a year later and then signed with Adams) and then invested in TRUE Linkswear, a shoe apparel company, in spring 2010. His latest project aims […]

Walking out of the scoring trailer at the Travelers Championship a week ago, Ryan Moore didn’t think he had a shot to secure a spot at the Open Championship. He said to his playing partner, Padraig Harrington, “Oh yeah, good luck at the British since I won’t be there.” In fact, he was heading home […]

As Ryan Moore’s tee shot on 17 loomed in the air, he held his follow-through while he watched the ball. It was struck well — perhaps a little too well as it flew over the green. He glanced over at his caddie and brother, Jason Moore, and shrugged nonchalantly. Turned out Ryan’s ball hit the […]

With three holes left to play at the 2010 Masters, Ryan Moore knocked his tee shot into the cup on the 16th, making him the first to make an ace while sporting a tie in a long, long time. (He wore four different renditions of the button-up-shirt-sweater-cardigan-tie get-up.) Moore eventually finished with a four-under 68 […]

The story is in this week’s edition of Sports Illustrated. My favorite line? “Ryan is never going to be upset that the media is covering someone because of the shiny belt they’re wearing.” That came from Jason, Ryan’s younger brother, with a little smirk. Surprisingly, 1,500 words — which initially seemed daunting — fills up […]

I chatted with PGA Tour player Ryan Moore earlier this week. This interview has been edited for clarity and brevity (yes, I know it’s still long, but I think it’s all interesting). You signed an equipment deal with Scratch Golf at the end of last year. How did it come about? They sent me some […]

Ryan Moore, the only guy who has won a tournament playing sponsor-free since, like, the 1970s, found an equipment company that fits his game. He signed with Scratch Golf and is their first PGA Tour staff professional. He’s sporting a bag with their logo and playing with their clubs at the HSBC Champions in Shanghai, […]
