Ryan Moore shot 66-66-65-65 at Phoenix and still finished fourth. Nevertheless, it improved his confidence and his scoring average.

Moore produced his stellar results as he played for the first time with AeroTech SteelFiber composite shafts in his irons.

Those clubs were among 11 new TaylorMade clubs he employed this week: R1 driver (9 degree), RocketBallz Stage 2 3-wood (13 degree), RocketBallz Stage 3 5-wood (19 degree) and RocketBladez Tour irons (3-PW).

Ben Crane also made the switch to AeroTech at Phoenix.
