Moore Captures Western Amateur


BENTON TOWNSHIP, Mich. -- Ryan Moore made a 33-foot birdie putt on the first extra hole to beat Australian James Nitties and win the 102nd Western Amateur championship.
Moore, the NCAA individual champion from UNLV, also won the U.S. Public Links and Sahalee Players Championship titles this summer.
After Moore's long birdie, Nitties missed a 12-foot putt that would have sent the match to a second extra hole.
