While his play this weekend fell just short of defeating Rory McIlroy for the Tournament Players Championship and the FedEx Cup, the display of golf that included a playoff shoot-out with the Champion earned Ryan Moore an urgent phone call,

Presumably a short time after entering the East Lake Golf Club Clubhouse, Moore took a call from Ryder Cup Captain Davis Love III, Moore will thus be the last addition to a U.S. squad that will be asked to wrest the coveted trophy from the defending champion Europeans this weekend at Hazeltine in Minnesota.

Moore played well enough on Sunday to be included in a trio of golfers that completed regulation play at twelve under par. Kevin Chappell was the third golfer to advance, but he succumbed after the first playoff hole,

McIlroy and Moore waged battle for two more playoff holes before the Irishman sank a clutch putt for the win.
