Ryan Moore will replace injured John Daly in Sunday’s Bard Capital Challenge at the Tournament Players Club at The Canyons in Las Vegas.
Moore, the 2004 U.S. Amateur champion from Puyallup, joins Mark Calcavecchia, Fred Funk, Zach Johnson, Nick Price, Rory Sabbatini, Bo Van Pelt and Scott Verplank in the event. The pros will pair with two-man amateur teams in Sunday’s finals for a $750,000 prize, of which $150,000 will be donated to the American Cancer Society.
Daly withdrew due to a broken hand. Moore, 22, turned pro in June and earned $686,250 in just 14 events to earn his PGA TOUR card for 2006.
