Moore wins Timberlake Open

LAS VEGAS — Former UNLV player Ryan Moore won the Justin Timberlake Shriners Hospitals for Children Open on Sunday for his second PGA Tour title, birdieing the 16th hole to take the outright lead and finishing with a 5-under 66 for 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. The Las Vegas resident earned $810,000 in the Fall Series opener.

De Jonge shot a 67. Blixt had a 70 to finish third at 20 under.

Jason Day pulled within three strokes of Moore and de Jonge with a birdie on the 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 partners Blixt and de Jonge, and birdied the seventh hole to pull two shots ahead.

De Jonge pulled even with birdies on Nos. 8 and 9 and they remained through 15, going to the 16th tee at 23 under. Moore birdied the 560-yard, par-5 16th to regain the outright lead and parred the final two holes.

Bill Lunde was fifth at 15 under after a 66. He jumped from 157th to 131st on the money list, with the final top 125 getting full 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 began the week 132nd on the money list.
