Moore wins in Las Vegas
LAS VEGAS, NV (TheSpread) – Ryan Moore showed why he was the pre-event favorite to win the Justin Timberlake Shriners Hospitals for Children Open as he did just that on Sunday.
Moore shot a 5-under 66 on Sunday to finish the tournament at -24 overall, one shot ahead of Brendon de Jonge, who shot a 4-under 67 on the final round. Jonas Blixt was tied with Moore entering the day, but shot a 1-under 70 to finish in third place at -20 overall.
According to oddsmakers at Bovada.lv, Moore had 12/1 odds to win this event entering the week, which means a $100 wager on him to win will pay out an additional $1,200.
The field was pretty lackluster this week, as the top players in the world were taking the week off after the Ryder Cup. Moore entered the tournament as the favorite to win it all.
