"Today's win was all pure don't beat myself," said Rich Moore, who qualifed for the field of 128 for the second consecutive year. "The biggest thing I do is try to stay disciplined to my own swing and let whatever happens down the grid. That's exactly what I did today. That's what my game plan has been all year. It started with a win at the Endless Invitational and I followed that up with a win in Omaha and now I am catching fire right before the finals with this great win at Region 2, the final regional qualifier of the year. I am looking forward to coming into the RE/MAX World Long Drive Championship very hungry and very disciplined."
