Taylor Moore has taken a liking to Detroit Golf Club.

It’s been two visits and two top-10s for the former Arkansas Razorback.

Moore’s Rocket Mortgage Classic debut in 2022 resulted in solo sixth (67-71-65-66). He followed it up with T-4th (64-67-69-67) last year.

He was well off the winning pace in ‘22 but in the thick of it finishing three back in ‘23. Moore led the field in putting last year at 9.951 Strokes Gained. The 30-year-old was also eighth in scrambling (81.25%) and second in putts per green in regulation (1.59).

“It's similar to some of the greens we see on the west coast, obviously being poa annua,” Moore was transcribed by Tee Scripts in 2023. “We haven't really seen them in a while. Even with the U.S. Open being in California they were bermuda. But yeah, kind of your typical Donald Ross slopey, try to stay underneath the hole, give yourself some space to work with if you happen to miss.”

Moore is purely a horse for the course pick this week as he was T-68th last week at the Travelers Championship after three straight missed cuts.

The 2023 Valspar Champion can heat up in a hurry, though. He flashed good form earlier this season with T-12th in his title defense at Innisbrook and T-2nd at the Texas Children’s Houston Open. Moore also posted his best career major championship finish with T-12th at the PGA Championship.

The 30-year-old ranks 48th on the PGA Tour in Strokes Gained: Off-the-Tee (.244) and 26th in club head speed (120.17 miles per hour).
