Stop by and meet Ryan Moore on Wednesday at McCormick Woods

Ryan Moore, one of the most stylish and promising players on the PGA Tour, will be in Port Orchard on Wednesday night from 5:30-7 p.m. It’s open to the public.

Stop by and shake his hand, or ask for his autograph, said Shawn Cucciardi, among the key players in the relatively new RMG Club.

RMG Club?

That would be Ryan Moore Golf Club.

It’s Moore’s latest business venture. Cucciardi, the former GM and one of the owners of McCormick Woods, had the idea and Moore liked it and has run with it. RMG Club presently operates McCormick Woods, The Classic in Spanaway and Oakbrook in Lakewood.
RMG offers unlimited-golf memberships at all three courses, or you can buy a twi-light membership or tailor to one course. There’s several options.  The company has also talked about buying additional courses.

Moore, the most acclaimed amateur in recent history, was busy Monday, trying to qualify for the U.S. Open. He didn’t make it.

Moore and Troy Kelly, who grew up in Kitsap, tied for 25th in Columbus. They finished at even-par 143. The low 16 in the field of 132 will be in the Open field at the Olympic Club in San Francisco, June 14-17.
While Moore, now based in Scottsdale, Ariz., headed back to the Northwest, Kelly headed to Memphis, where he’s playing in this week’s St. Jude Classic.

Moore, who turns 30 later in the year, has had three top-10 finishes in 14 starts this year and sits No. 47 on the money list ($933,704). He’s won over $12 million in his career, which includes one victory (Wyndham Championship in 2009) and six second-place finishes.

In 2004, Moore won the U.S. Amateur, U.S. Public Links, NCAA Championship, Western Amateur and Sahalee Players Championship. I know one guy who thinks that alone might be enough to get him in Golf’s Hall of Fame.

Almost forgot, bring a can of food. Cucciardi said it’ll go to the South Kitsap Helpline. And if you’re interested in dinner, he said it would be prudent to call in advance and make a reservation at the Clubhouse Restaurant.
