Taylor Moore produced a final-round 67 at Innisbrook to claim a one-stroke victory at the 2023 Valspar Championship.

The 29-year-old Arkansas alum appeared headed for a playoff at the famed Copperhead course but an untimely final-hole bogey by Adam Schenk (70) sent Moore to the winner’s circle on 10 under.

For the win, Moore earned $1,458,000 and 500 FedExCup points. He also picked up 37 PGA Tour world ranking points to move to No. 49 on the tour’s world rankings.
