The Tour said he died in Texas and did not give a cause of death.
Often called "Sarge" because of his 14 years in the U.S. Army, Moody was the last player to win the U.S. Open after going through local and sectional qualifying. He shot 72 in the final round at Champions Golf Club in Houston for a one-shot victory over Deane Beman, Al Geiberger and Bob Rosburg.
In his career, Moody, a part Choctaw Indian, was a runner-up at five PGA Tour tournaments. He also won international titles in Hong Kong, Morocco and Australia.
