TRACKING LOCALS ON THE PGA TOUR
This week: The Barclays, Thursday through Sunday, Liberty National Golf Club, Jersey City, N.J.
In the field: Puyallup’s Ryan Moore and Gig Harbor’s Kyle Stanley.
Stanley’s first-round score: 1-under-par 70.
Moore’s first-round score: 2-under par through seven holes.
Position: Moore is tied for 25th, and Stanley is tied for 41st – all trailing leader Kevin Stadler (64).
Recap: After five birdies on his first 13 holes (two-putt from 20 feet for birdie at No. 13) of a rain-delayed round, Stanley was among the early leaders at 4-under par. Then he had a mishap at the 15th hole, a dogleg par 4. His drive went so far right he had to take a penalty stroke and drop in the rough. He hit the green with his third shot, but three-putted from 80 feet for double bogey. When Moore returns to resume his round, he will be looking at a 33-foot putt for birdie at No. 17. He birdied No. 12 (12-footer) and No. 13 (10-footer), and did not make a bogey.
Tee times Friday: First-round action will resume at 4 a.m. (PDT).firstname.lastname@example.org
