About Inductee


Scott Moore was one of the most superb young golfers ever to emerge from the city of Huntsville, which has long been a hotbed of the sport. One of four sons of Robert E. and Sara Moore, Scott was born June 19, 1969 in Huntsville. Beginning in junior golf at age 7, he won 25 local, regional and national tournaments from 1976-83, played in three Future Masters tournaments in Dothan, won the Huntsville Country Club Junior Club Championship three times and finished third in the Alabama State Junior (1981). An honors student who finished third in his class in 1987, he became a four-year golf letterman at Lee High School, winning the team MVP all four years. He won 15 high school tournaments/matches while playing in numerous state and regional events and finished fifth in the State Tournament in 1987. He won two Huntsville City titles, qualified for the National High School Championship by finishing as the low senior in the state, and was selected as a national High School Golf All-American by finishing in the top 10. At the same event, he was presented the Eli Wucinich Award as the top scholar-athlete/ golfer in the country. Turning down golf scholarship offers from Alabama and the U.S. Military Academy, Moore accepted a scholarship from Vanderbilt University, where he earned four letters from 1987-91, playing in the No. 1 or No. 2 spot all four years. He won the 1987 MTSU-Hillsboro College Invitational in 1987 and was named Vandys MVP in 1988. He led the Commodores to their first Top 20 ranking in 1991 while competing against many current PGA players, including Phil Mickelson, Jim Furyk, Chris Dimarco, David Toms, Dudley Hart and Spike McRoy. Moore competed in four SEC Championship and 50 straight tournaments. He earned a Vanderbilt degree in four years, making the Deans List in 1990 and 1991. In 1993, he received an MBA degree from the University of Alabama in Huntsville. Still an active amateur golfer, Moores record includes wins in three HCC club championships, two Valley Hill Invitationals (1997-98), two HCC Labor Day Invitationals (1997-98), the Goose Pond Invitational (1999) and the North Alabama Classic at Hampton Cove (2000). In 1998 he shot a 63, one off the course record, at Huntsville Country Club. As far as anyone knows, he is the only player who ever had a hole-in-one and an even-rarer double eagle in the same nine holes at HCC, a feat accomplished in June 2001. My most satisfying memory in golf was signing a golf scholarship to such a fine university as Vanderbilt, says Moore. A resident of Hampton Cove, Moore is the Chief Financial Officer of the PPM Division at Intergraph Corporation. As CFO, he directs all the global finance, accounting, contracts, legal and global business operations of a $400 million annual revenue division. He has been employed at Intergraph for18 years. Moore and his wife Lisa have two daughters: Mackenzie, 6, and Madison, 4.
