Ryan Moore shoots career and course record

Las Vegas resident Ryan Moore shot a course record and his career best 10-under 61 on his home course at TPC Summerlin in the first round of the Justin Timberlake Shrines Hospital for Children Open.

In perfect conditions at Las Vegas' TPC Sumerlin course, Moore had nine birdies, an eagle and one bogey to lead the first event in the Fall Series by one-stroke.

''Just one of those nice days,'' Moore said. ''Got off to a great start ... 7 under on the front nine and just kind of cruised the next nine. Made bogey there on my 17th hole, No. 8, which I wasn't too happy about. It was great to bounce back with a birdie on the ninth hole.

''No wind and perfect temperature, greens are reasonably soft and rolling nice on top of that. So it's one of those days that you just keep putting it in play. You know you're going to have a bunch of pitching wedges, 9-irons, 8-irons into these greens, and a few shorter irons, too.''

Moore has seven top-10 finishes and has one PGA Tour title to his name, having won the 2009 Wyndham Championship. He also tied the TPC Summerlin record back in 2001.

''I had no idea that was the course record, so that's nice,'' Moore said. ''I've just been playing good, solid golf lately. Just kind of keep hitting the ball solid and giving myself opportunities. On a golf course like this, I'm probably more comfortable. I've played it more this year than any other coming into it.''
