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

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

First-round score: 10-over-par 80.

Position: Moore is in 69th place, 13 strokes behind co-leaders Rory McIlroy, Jordan Spieth and Gary Woodland (67).

Recap: Moore’s late-summer swoon came to a head Thursday. He posted his first round in the 80s since his third-round 81 at the 2013 Masters and his first at a PGA Tour event since a final-round 85 at the 2012 Shell Houston Open. It all started Thursday when Moore hit his drive into a sand bunker on the way to the first of his 10 bogeys. He just hit five of 18 greens in regulation, and he struggled on the greens all afternoon. The Cascade Christian product did not make a single birdie.

Tee time Friday: 10:31 a.m. (PDT) off the 10th tee.
