Terry Moore has worn many hats during his golf career – caddie, high school team member, co-founder of Michigan Golfer magazine, founder of the West Michigan Golf Show, board member of the Golf Writers Association of America, Golf Association of Michigan governor, internet columnist and member of the Michigan Golf Foundation board.
As a business executive Moore co-founded All About Golf as a statewide radio program which later evolved into a media relations enterprise.
Moore covered golf statewide and especially in West Michigan where he was heard regularly on morning radio while also being instrumental in the start of several new golf tournaments.
As its editor, Michigan Golfer twice won awards from the National Golf Foundation for “Excellence in Journalism.” He has been honored by the Michigan Golf Course Owners Association for his “major impact on the golf industry in Michigan,” made an honorary member of the Michigan Golf Course Superintendents Association and received a Distinguished Service Award from the Michigan Interscholastic Golf Coaches Association.
As a golfer, Moore won the inaugural GAM’s Super Senior Championship in 2015 with an even-par score.
Along with being a Governor of the GAM, he served as a co-chair of the Michigan Golf Hall of Fame committee. In 2022, he covered his 36th Masters tournament.
In 2022, an actor portrayed Moore in the movie, “The Phantom of the Open.” Based on a true story, Moore invited Maurice Flitcroft, the Brit who gained fame for shooting 121 in the Open Championship qualifier, to a tournament named in Flitcroft’s honor at Blythefield CC in 1988.
