Philadelphia, PA (SportsNetwork. Chris Thorburn Jersey .com) - Not many players are successful in defending their title in golf tournaments. Ryan Moore joined that club on Sunday at the CIMB Classic thanks to some perfectly executed strategy. Moore entered the final round tied for the lead but quickly found himself two strokes behind playing partner Kevin Na. Na birdied three of the first four holes, while Moore had birdied the second. Moore inched within one as they headed to the back nine and the two were tied with five holes to play. At the driveable par-4 14th, Moore teed off first, and curiously choose to lay up off the tee. Na blasted his drive just over the green, but seemingly had the easier chance at birdie. It was Moore who made birdie, which helped him pull away from Na. Moore nearly holed his second as his approach shot landed within a foot of the hole just right of the cup and stopped about a foot away on the left side. Na, whose chip shot on the 14th ran well by the hole, failed to make his birdie putt and fell one behind when Moore kicked in his short birdie try. It was the perfect match play strategy, and that was how the final few holes were shaping up, a match play battle. On 14 there, Kevin hit a great drive that looked almost like a 2-putt for birdie and I had laid up, but that was my strategy all along. Thats where I was comfortable with that pin, and to hit a great wedge shot in there was a perfect, Moore explained. I laid up exactly where I needed to - perfect, full sand wedge (distance). Just couldnt have had a nicer shot and almost ended up making that one. The strategy for Moore was to put pressure on Nas chip and with his near- perfect approach shot, that is exactly what he did. Moore made it two in a row as he also birdied the 15th. After a bogey at 16, Moore stuffed his second shot at the 17th within a foot once again. That birdie pushed him four clear of Na, who made double-bogey at the 17th as his tee shot was never found right of the fairway. Reverting to a match play mind-set is easy for Moore, who had one of the great summers an amateur golfer can have in 2004. Among his match play victories that summer were the U.S. Amateur Championship, the U.S. Amateur Public Links Championship and the Western Amateur Championship. He was the first player ever to win the U.S. Amateur and Public Links in the same summer. The mind-set in match play is to put pressure on your opponent. Moore executed his plan to precision on Sunday. Maybe hell get a chance to do the same one day at the Presidents Cup or Ryder Cup. RARE FINISH ON THE LPGA It is a rare occurrence when the top-three players in the world rankings are playing in the same event. It is an even rarer occurrence when they finish 1-2-3 on the leaderboard. On the PGA Tour, you might see the top three together at 11 events a year - four majors, three World Golf Championship and four FedExCup playoff events - but not many more than that. The current top three in the mens world rankings have played 11 events together this season, though not the aforementioned 11. The top-three ranked LPGA Tour players - Inbee Park, Stacy Lewis and Lydia Ko - have been among the top three spots in the world rankings most of the season. There are no WGCs on the LPGA and no playoffs, either, but there are five majors. The five majors were among the 16 times those three players have played the same event this year. However, the Fubon LPGA Taiwan Championship was the first time this season they finished first, second and third on the leaderboard. Park, Lewis and Ko have all had such stellar seasons. In the 16 events they have all played in, the trio have all finished in the top 10 at five events. The closest they had been to finishing 1-2-3 was at the Swinging Skirts LPGA Classic, where Ko won, Lewis finished second and Park tied for third. Being among the top finishers every week helps, too. Lewis, Park and Ko are first, second and tied for third among top-10 finishes on the LPGA Tour this year. Lewis is the old lady of the group at the ripe of age of 29. That means the LPGA Tour is in good hands for many years to come. MINI-TIDBITS - According to a Golf Channel report, members of this years losing U.S. Ryder Cup team have contacted Fred Couples to ask him to be the next captain. Couples has gone 3-0 as the Presidents Cup captain and is a past major champion. He fits the old criteria the PGA of America used to look for in its captains, so well see if this happens. Truthfully, there is no reason it shouldnt happen. - Miguel Angel Jimenez had a Tin Cup-like moment this past weekend at the BMW Masters. The Spaniard rinsed four shots in the water on the par-4 ninth. Jimenez posted a 9-over 13 on that hole en route to a 16-over 88 in the final round. He did win three times earlier this year, twice on the European Tour and once on the Champions Tour.

LUCIE, Fla. -- Calling the New York Mets a "marquee franchise," new players union head Tony Clark is paying attention to the teams payroll. Mets general manager Sandy Alderson said he expects the teams payroll to be between $85 million and $88 million this season, which would be a slight decrease from its $90.9 million final figure last year. Despite the additions of free agents Curtis Granderson, Bartolo Colon and Chris Young, the Mets have a payroll resembling that of a mid-market franchise. The Los Angeles Dodgers payroll is over $225 million and the New York Yankees will top $200 million. "Any time there are concerns or issues with any club related to certain habits or trends, we pay attention to it," Clark said after speaking with Mets players Tuesday during his tour of the 30 spring training camps. "New York is no different than any other club, from the standpoint of appreciating whats paid in payroll and how clubs may be functioning in general, related to improving the group they have on the field." Clark declined to say specifically whether the union has spoken with the Mets owners or front office about payroll. "Rest assured that any conversations were having with management likely wont end up in the newspaper," he said. "We will always stay engaged, from top to bottom with any club, at leastt related to any concerns we may have and how those concerns manifest themselves. Chris Pronger Jersey. " Clark also said he was concerned free agent shortstop Stephen Drew has not signed. Drew, pitcher Ervin Santana and designated hitter Kendrys Morales declined to accept $14.1 million qualifying offers, and teams signing them would lose a selection in Junes amateur draft. But if a team signs one of those players after the draft, it would not forfeit a pick. "Any time you have players on the free-agent market who are still sitting at home come March 4 that I think everyone would agree can have a positive impact on any club that they would happen to play on, it is a concern," Clark said. "Its a topic that we pay a lot of attention to because we dont think its in anyones best interests to have some of the top players in the game sitting at home and not playing on the field."
