Let the records show that there was a regular PGA Tour event this weekend: the Wyndham Championship, or the GGO as a lot of old-timers remember it. Rain suspended play each of the first three days, but they managed to get all four rounds in. In the end, Ryan Moore—2004 Everything-Amateur Champion and the hippest dresser on tour—finally won his first pro tournament in a playoff against Jason Bohn and Baby Walrus (a.k.a. Kevin Stadler). I've always liked Ryan Moore, if just for the fact that he's the only golfer I know of who sports a beard, and it's good to see that he just may be getting his talents together.

I don't recall what tournament it was earlier this year but he was in the lead for a round or two. I really like his style of play. Congrats to him for winning this weekend.

He played well and deserved to win. Hopefully, he will use a portion of his earnings to buy the proper size shirts/pants. Evidently he is from the Mickelson school of thought....wear a Smedium when you need an XL. Other than that...congrats, Ryan on a well deserved win.

Anyone have any idea why he refuses to wear any logos? I mean its not like he's taking a stand against world hunger or something. He doesn't seem to really care about his appearance; it looked to me like he was wearing a 15 year old Wal*Mart brand polo he picked up at Goodwill. I know a bunch of guys look like Winston Cup cars out there but is it really worth throwing away all that money? I am on TV for my job sometimes and if someone paid me to wear a logo and I could get away with it I'd do it.

If he really wanted to do something worthwhile why not get some sponsors and donate all the money to charity?

* Edit: For all I know he is wearing designer clothing but I know his shirt doesn't look right.

I've been noticing Moore a lot this year and paying attention to what he's been doing. He seems very consistent - always seems to play well - not a lot of MCs. He played great at Bethpage - and he bombs the ball for a smaller guy (5'9, about 170).

Ryan is from the northwest, Seattle area I believe. I think his "look" is that of his generation in the northwest - comfortable clothes and doesn't give a crap what anyone thinks. He seems like a simple guy, doesn't want to deal with a lot of corporate bullshit and is happy making really good money off his winnings. I bet he has a bit of a "I'm not selling out" side to him - as he looks like a guy that might enjoy a Phish show once in a while.

He has the demeanor and the game to win a lot of tournaments.

I know he used to wear a Ping logo on his hat -

I don't know...I didn't get a good look at what irons he was playing this weekend. PING irons are pretty distinctive, so it would be easy to find out if he is still sponsored by them.

Haha, I kind of like that attitude. To be honest, I never noticed, but I think it's cool if he doesn't want another company to pick his clothes for him. It seems like it would be tough to pass up the extra money, but I think it's kind of strange just how carefully put together everybody's outfits are on the PGA Tour. Some of the players seem to treat it like a fashion show or something, haha. I'm all for the "not giving a crap what anyone thinks" attitude.

poor sergio

Yup....he was beat by a fuzzy fella wearing little boy pants, stubby hat and a tight shirt.

Actually, El Nino's putter beat him..............again. Congrats to Ryan Moore for the victory. He's a different sort....don't mind that....I also really like the fact that another win is made by a non cookie-cutter swing.

I think it was his over-rated ballstriking. He was missing greens before he was missing the five-footers for par.

he started using adams drivers and ping wouldnt't let him so he dropped the ping sponsorship and decided he was gunna use whatever clubs and clothes he wanted.

sergio was soooo close to chipping in from the bunker to get in the playoff!

Yep, but if he'd held it together when he was at -17 he wouldn't have had to pull off the miracle shot just for a chance to playoff. Bummer, but he had more than a fair shot at it without the theatrics.

Congrats to Ryan Moore and his first win.

Seriously.. Win or Lose... Sergio Garcia shot 67, 64, 64, 70....and missed a playoff literally by one inch....

man, there are just too many Sergio haters...

I was actually happy to see him not using the belly putter. He was ballstriking wonderfully and rolling it nicely throughout the tournament. He seemed to get tentative with every club on the back nine and came up short, but I thought he played great...Moore just played better and deserved to win.

I didnt think it would take this long actually..but its easy for us to criticize and play monday morning quarterback. It's tough to win on the Tour and especially tough to win majors. Remember Ryan Moore won literally everything coming into the tour years ago from the NCAA championship, Western AM to the US AM. He was due and Im very happy for the guy. He can really roll the rock and has control of his unorthodox swing. I think Moore has many more coming too.

You dont think Sergio is a good ballstriker? I give you that he chocked it away but that is usually the best part of his game. no?

He is a terrible putter though
