Ryan Moore's second PGA Tour win can inspire him to more victories, Mark Roe told Sky Sports.

"He's a class golfer and he should win more tournaments. Maybe now this will be the stepping stone to many more victories. "
Mark Roe Quotes of the week

The American won in his hometown on Sunday, scooping the Justin Timberlake Shriners Hospitals for Children Open in Las Vegas with a tournament record -24.

He sealed the one-shot win over Brendon de Jonge with a final round 66 to double his PGA Tour tally, with his other win coming in August 2009 at the Wyndham Championship.

"I thought he was brilliant on Sunday and he's been brilliant all week," said Roe. "He's beaten the tournament record, he's won in his hometown, with all his friends and family there and he's played beautiful golf - what more could you ask?

"He's a class golfer and he should win more tournaments. Maybe now this will be the stepping stone to many more victories.

"He's a big player. That's his second victory but I love the way he played this week.

"The golf swing is unusual but I like the whole package with Ryan Moore. I think he's a world class player and now he's proving it."

Moore's win moved him to 25th on the PGA Tour money list and with a top 30 place guaranteeing invites to prestige events such as the Masters he will have the opportunity to show his potential at the big events in 2013.

His season is over now, though, with his wife due to give birth to their first child in the next few weeks.

New Day

However, Australian Jason Day will be keen to put his good form to use in the remainder of the 2012 campaign.

Day was briefly moving into contention on the final after completing the front nine in a record-equalling seven-under-par 28. That moved him to -19. Despite slipping to -18 his fourth place suggests he is playing well, said Denis Pugh.

"We saw enough from Jason Day in that final round to suggest a strong finish over the coming few weeks."
