Ryan Moore wins for third time on PGA Tour

Updated: November 1, 2013

Puallup native and PGA Tour star Ryan Moore birdied the first playoff hole to beat Gary Woodland and capture the CIMB Classic in Malaysia title a day later after an overnight wait caused by storms and darkness.

Moore had to fight just to get in the playoff, hitting an awkward 60-yard wedge shot on the 18th hole that dropped within several feet of the hole and allowed him to salvage par.

In the playoff, Moore hit a well-placed approach shot with an eight-iron to the same green that stopped dead about 5 feet from the hole, setting up his winning birdie putt. It was Moore’s third PGA Tour title and came nearly a year after he won his second, at the 2012 Shriners Hospitals for Children Open.
