Martin Laird's wild lap around TPC Summerlin concluded with a 3-under-par 34-34=68 in the third round of the Shriners Hospitals for Children Open.
There are many ways to post a 3-under, and Laird took a rather unconventional route. He circled an impressive eight birdies, but stubbed his toe with five birdies and settled for just five pars on the afternoon. Three of those birdies required applause, falling from longer than 16 feet. His highlight was a 43'2" birdie on the par-3 eighth hole. As a past champion in this event with 19 birdies already on his scorecard, there is no reason to think that he isn't capable of a big finale on Sunday. He completed 54 holes in 11-under 202.

First-round co-leader Martin Laird settled for a 1-under-par 34-36=70 in his second round of the Shriners Hospitals for Children Open.

Laird didn't have it on approach today. He missed only one putt from inside 11 feet -- that was en route to a double bogey at the par-4 seventh hole -- but he didn't sink anything than 7'2" (for birdie at the par-4 15th). However, it's a marathon over 72 holes, so he can't complain about sitting just two strokes off the 36-hole clubhouse lead. Laird is 8-under 134 at the break.

Martin Laird pured a bogey-free, 7-under-par 30-34=64 in his opening round of the Shriners Hospitals for Children Open, good for a share of the clubhouse lead.

He parlayed the 36-hole lead at Silverado last week into a T3, so today's score is merely a continuation of his confidence. Laird found all 18 greens in regulation today and converted seven times for birdie. Four among the set traveled longer than 10 feet, including a pair from just outside 15 feet, but the highlight was a walk-off from 39'10" at the par-4 18th. At the time he signed his card, he ranked second in strokes gained: tee-to-green at 3.749.

Martin Laird signed for a 1-under-par 35-36=71 in the final round of the Frys.com Open to end his week inside the top five at 12-under 276.

The Scot had a relatively uneventful stroll around Silverado Resort and Spa’s North Course. He traded three birdies for two bogeys on the afternoon. Two of his birdies were noteworthy. He converted a 34'10" putt on the par-4 third hole for his first red number and added a 20'2" effort on the par-3 15th for his final circle. While he was unable to convert the 36-hole lead to an eventual win, he is most definitely off and running in the new season.

Martin Laird could only muster a 1-under-par 37-34=71 in the third round of the Frys.com Open and falls into a tie for third at 11-under 205.

Laird held the 36-hole lead, but was unable to get much going at Silverado Resort and Spa’s North Course on Saturday. He swallowed three bogeys on the front nine, including blemishes on both of the par 5s, while partially offsetting that with two birdies. He settled down on the back nine with two birdies and seven pars. He birdied three of the four par 3s, including a 22'2" birdie on the par-3 seventh and a 35'8" bomb on the par-3 15th. He trails Sang-moon Bae by five strokes with 18 to play.

Martin Laird answered his opening, 5-under-par 34-33=67 at the Frys.com Open with another in today's second round to post 10-under 134, good for early possession of the 36-hole clubhouse lead.

Laird didn't go bogey-free again today, but he found one more birdie than Thursday, totaling six on Friday. It was also an efficient effort given he hit one fewer green in regulation (13). His longest birdies measured 19'2" and 22'11" at Nos. 10 and 11, respectively, but the Scot also poured in a par save from 12'10" at the par-5 16th where he hooked his drive well left of the fairway and just 195 yards from the tee. His only bogey occurred at the par-4 sixth.

Martin Laird crafted a bogey-free, 5-under-par 34-33=67 in his opening round of the Frys.com Open, finishing one stroke off the clubhouse lead.

After a season largely lost as he focused on the birth of his first child in February, Laird remains fully exempt through 2014-15. He took a leap toward extending his life on the PGA TOUR today, splitting nine (of 14) fairways and going 4-for-4 in scrambling at Silverado. The Scot rolled in five birdies, including conventional conversions from 16'11" and 19'3" at Nos. 17 and 18, respectively, to conclude his first nine. He also holed out for birdie from the rough six yards away at the par-4 sixth. Laird's greatest challenge to keep his scorecard clean was answered when a par try from 11'7" at the par-3 15th disappeared.
Oct 9 - 8:25 PM

Martin Laird fell just short of the 2014 FedExCup Playoffs but will start anew at this week's Frys.com Open.

The Scot remains fully exempt through 2014-15 for his win at the 2013 Valero Texas Open. While the venue has since changed, Laird posted a T34 and a T19 in back-to-back years at this event, when it was hosted at Grayhawk Golf Club's Raptor Course in Scottsdale, Arizona. Laird finished last season with three straight top 30s, and it will be interesting to see if the momentum carries over after the layoff.

Martin Laird stumbled late in the third round of the Wyndham Championship and settled for a 1-under-par 32-37=69, reaching the 54-hole mark at 10-under 200.

The Scot picked up three birdies on Sedgefield CC's front nine, including a 18'7" effort on the par-4 eighth. The tables would turn on the inward nine, with Laird suffering two bogeys without the benefit of a birdie or better. His ball-striking was impeccable, splitting 13 of 14 fairways and landing 15 GIR. He entered the week 136th in the FedExCup standings, and a top-10 finish does not guarantee that he will move inside the top 125 for a spot in the FEC Playoffs.
Aug 16 - 5:37 PM

Martin Laird piled on with a 4-under-par 33-33=66 in his second round of the Wyndham Championship.

Added to his opening 65, the Scot is 9-under 131 at the break, one stroke back of the 36-hole clubhouse co-leaders. Laird opened today's loop with a birdie conversion from 40'5" at the par-4 10th. He found six more birdies, the longest of that set dropping from 34'4" at the par-3 third. Laird also squared three bogeys, all on par 4s, the second of which via a three-putt from just inside 36 feet at No. 2.

Martin Laird submitted a 5-under-par 31-34=65 for his opening round of the Wyndham Championship.

After enduring was shaped up to be a lost season, the Scot tied for sixth place in Reno two weeks ago. The Barracuda Championship is funky in that it uses the Modified Stableford scoring system, but Laird put to rest doubts over whether that mattered. He opened birdie-birdie at Sedgefield today, and then buried an eagle from 11'2" at the par-5 fifth hole. After swallowing his only bogey of the day at the par-4 sixth where he three-putted from just outside 38 feet, he came home in bogey-free 2-under with birdies at 8 and 16. He went on to sign his card sitting one stroke off the clubhouse lead. Laird is 136th in the FedExCup standings, but he's fully exempt for 2014-15 via his win at the 2013 Valero Texas Open.
Aug 14 - 1:12 PM

Martin Laird picked up 12 points in his final round of the Barracuda Championship with a bogey-free 6-under-par 32-34=66.

Laird is the first to reach the clubhouse with 35 points, but can likely hope for nothing better than a third-place finish. Of his six birdies, two fell from outside of 15 feet. He entered the week 144th in the FedExCup standings and now finds himself squarely on the bubble for the FedExCup Playoffs with only the Wyndham Championship remaining on his schedule.
Aug 3 - 4:59 PM

Martin Laird collected 13 points in his opening round of the Barracuda Championship.

Laird is 144th in the FedExCup standings, but he's fully exempt through next season. Still, he needs to make a move to clinch a spot for the potential windfall that awaits in the Playoffs. Today offered a great start. He hit 15 greens in regulation and picked off seven birdies to hide one bogey. He's three points off the pace of the clubhouse co-leaders.
Jul 31 - 4:14 PM

Martin Laird will take on Royal Montreal GC in his 18th start of the season at the RBC Canadian Open.

The Scot took some time off for the birth of his first child earlier this season, which has likely hurt him on the course. He ranks 153rd in the FedExCup standings and needs to mount a serious charge down the stretch if he is to qualify for the Playoffs. His last top-25 finish came way back in February in the form of a T19 at the Waste Management Phoenix Open.

Martin Laird makes his fourth start in the Quicken Loans National ranked 139th in the FedExCup standings.

Laird has experienced becoming a father for the first time this season, so it's certainly possible that the life change has carried over to the golf course. His history in this event his good, making each of his three cuts highlighted by a T11 at Congressional in 2012. He's made three of his last five cuts, including a pair of T30s.
