SEASON IN REVIEW: Moore hasn't won since the 2009 Wyndham Championship but six top-10s in 2012 show that he continues to put himself in contention. He showed the same kind of determination in the FedExCup Playoffs where started 64th and steadily made his way into the top 30, jumping seven spots with a tie for 10th at the BMW Championship. He rallied back from three bogeys on the back nine with a birdie at the 18th to assure his spot. – Helen Ross

EAST LAKE HISTORY: Moore has one previous PGA TOUR start at East Lake. He tied for ninth in 2010, shooting 68-69 on the weekend.

ALBERS’ QUICK TAKE: Fred Albers, on-course correspondent for SiriusXM PGA TOUR Radio, provides a quick look at Moore:
Marches to the beat of a different drummer.  Not afraid to be different.  His swing is unorthodox but not his putting stroke.  Ryan is a very good putter and that makes him dangerous at East Lake.
