Arkansas' Moore off to strong start this spring
Tuesday, February 25, 2014
Taylor Moore notched two top 10s in five starts for Arkansas during the fall.
He's already equaled that total in two starts this spring.
The sophomore from Edmond, Okla., tied for fourth to help the Razorbacks win their spring opener, the Gator Invitational. Then on Sunday, Moore wrapped up a T-10 finish at the Bayou City Collegiate.
"I actually didn't play that bad during the fall," Moore said. "I didn't score that well, though, and it always seemed like I'd have that one bad round that would knock me out of a top-5 or top-10 finish. . . . Consistency issues, I guess.
"But I'm starting to eliminate those mistakes and starting to mature a little bit better."
Moore's strong start to the spring continues the success he had during the winter break. Moore tied for third at the Patriot All-America in Litchfield Park, Ariz., right before the new year. He remained in Arizona and six days later won the inaugural Saguaro Amateur in Maricopa, Ariz.
"Some of the guys didn't get to play over break and we weren't able to practice that much with the bad weather, so it was nice to go play some rounds and have two good tournaments out there in Arizona," Moore said. "The confidence I've gotten from winning (the Saguaro) has helped so far this spring."
