Woodland began making changes to his game last January when he started working with new swing coach Butch Harmon. He later switched to Harmon's son, Claude, hired a new short-game coach, Pat Goss, and then added a new psychology coach, Julie Elion.
The results finally started to come in August: Woodland won his second PGA Tour title at the Reno-Tahoe Open and a couple of weeks later shared second place at The Barclays.
Starting the new wraparound PGA Tour season this month, Woodland also added a new caddie, Tony Navarro, who previously worked with Greg Norman and Adam Scott.
"I put a lot of hard work in," he said. "It's been a process with the changes I've made, switching to Butch and his son, and it's finally starting to come together, which is nice. I put a lot of work in on the short game, a lot of work on the middle game, and we're starting to put it together now."
Moore is also hoping to build on the victory at the $7 million Malaysian tournament, which became an official PGA Tour event this year, awarding FedEx Cup points and a spot in the Masters.
Given how well he has played at this time of year, he's glad the new wraparound season is starting in October.
"Now that it counts, now that it's a full FedEx Cup event and counts as a win on the PGA Tour, it does so much for you," he said. "To get a win this early in the season, it's just incredible, to be able to get some FedEx Cup points racked up."
