Tracking Ryan Moore in the FedEx Cup Playoffs: Sept. 4-7, 2014

This week: BMW Championship, Thursday through Sunday, Cherry Hills Country Club, Cherry Hills Village, Colorado

World ranking: 41st.

2013-14 earnings: $3.078 million (19th on the PGA Tour).

FedEx Cup playoff standing: 1,434 points (34th on the PGA Tour).

The skinny: Well, it is official — Moore was not selected to the U.S. Ryder Cup team Tuesday as a wild card pick. Frankly, nobody should question the decision, at least after the way Moore played in late August. After missing the cut at the playoff-opening Barclays, the Cascade Christian graduate placed 73rd at last week’s Deutsche Bank Championship (6-over-par 290). Yet Moore has a history of soaring at the BMW Championship, even though it has rotated among Cog Hill, Crooked Stick and Conway Farms the past three years. In the past four seasons, he hasn’t finished worse than tied-for-16th at this event. He tied for 11th last year. And he needs a big week to get back into the top 30 in the FedEx Cup playoff standings in order to advance to The Tour Championship.

Tee time: 11:37 a.m. (PDT) off the first tee.
