After a lackluster performance on the East Coast, Martin Laird looks to return to earlier-season form at this week's Zurich Classic of New Orleans.
Laird is 1-for-3 at Zurich with T24 in 2009 as his only cash. He returned last year (after a four-year NOLA hiatus), only to shoot 70-77 and miss the cut by five. The 32-year-old Scot ranks 43rd in FedExCup points on the strength of two West Coast top 10s. Overall, he's made seven-straight cuts but hasn't placed in the top 30 in any of his last four starts.

In today's opening round of the Arnold Palmer Invitational, Martin Laird lapped Bay Hill Club and Lodge in bogey-free, 4-under-par 33-35=68.

The 2011 champ concluded his twist on the West Coast Swing with top 10s, but settled for a T33 at last week's Valspar Championship, which was his start since the PGA TOUR migrated east. He's 5-for-5 at Bay Hill and about to pad that résumé. Laird missed only one of the 14 fairways and just two greens in regulation. He collected four birdies, including runs from 15'7" and 14'8" at the 11th and 13th holes, respectively. When he walked off, he was just two strokes off the clubhouse lead.

Martin Laird is back in action at this week's Valspar Championship.

Laird cracked the top 15 in each of his three starts in 2015, with a T7 in the Farmers Insurance Open his last outing. That means he sat out the last four weeks. The big question will be surrounding if he is able to pick up where he left off, or if a little rust gathered on the clubs. He tied for fifth at the Copperhead Course back in 2011, so if the stars align he could certainly make some serious noise this week.

Martin Laird crafted a 3-under-par 33-36=69 in the final round of the Farmers Insurance Open to take the clubhouse lead at 7-under 281.

Laid began the day as an afterthought, but difficult conditions at Torrey Pines South on Sunday have him in the mix. He picked up three birdies on the front nine, and traded a bogey on the par-4 14th with a birdie on the par-5 18th on the back. All of his birdies fell from inside of 10 feet, with the 9'4" birdie on the 18th the highlight. He will now wait and watch.
Feb 8 - 4:22 PM

Martin Laird tossed up another 4-under-par 68 in today's second round of the Farmers Insurance Open, only this time on the North Course at Torrey Pines.

Laird shot respective nines of 36 and 32 with one eagle, three birdies and a bogey. (He co-leads the field with two eagles at the midpoint.) While he's split just six (of 14) fairways in each round, the Scot has totaled 29 greens in regulation, including 15 today. At 8-under 136, he's just two strokes off the 36-hole clubhouse lead.
Feb 6 - 6:39 PM

Martin Laird enjoyed a 4-under-par 33-35=68 in his opening round of the Farmers Insurance Open on the South Course at Torrey Pines.

The Scot was the outright leader after both 36 and 54 holes in Arizona last week, but then faded to finish in a two-way tie for fifth place after a Sunday 72. As veteran touring pros are known to do, he turned the page immediately to put himself in terrific position to pounce on the pushover that is Torrey North on Friday. Today's loop included an eagle-3 and six birdies. His longest conversion measured 18 feet for birdie at the par-3 16th hole. Laird is four strokes in arrears of the clubhouse lead.
Feb 5 - 8:06 PM

Martin Laird settled for a 1-over-par 34-38=72 in the final round of the Waste Management Phoenix Open to share fifth place at 12-under 272.

This one has to hurt for the 54-hole leader. The Scot birdied his very first hole, but couldn't find another one until the par-5 15th. He was tied with Brooks Koepka with the lead with two holes remaining, but a three-putt bogey on the par-4 17th and a drive in the water that led to double bogey on the par-4 18th would send him plummeting down the leaderboard. He will lick his wounds and live to fight another day, as the state of his game is clearly good.
Feb 1 - 6:09 PM

Martin Laird totes a three-stroke lead into the final round of the Waste Management Phoenix Open following his 3-under-par 34-34=68 in the third round.

Laird completed 54 holes at TPC Scottsdale in 13-under 200. Of his six birdies, two were of the memorable variety. He drained a 15'4" putt for a three on the par-4 ninth, and two holes later he holed out from 46'10" for another. While he did suffer three bogeys, it could have been a little worse. He converted a 25'9" bogey from off the green on the par-4 fifth hole and ended his day with a 8'9" par on 18. The Scot ranks second in strokes gained: tee-to-green and leads the field with a 1.594putting average. Already a winner on three occasions on the PGA TOUR, he will try and hold off a pack of players in Sunday's final round. There are three players in a tie for second at 10-under, and three more at 9-under.
Jan 31 - 5:47 PM

Martin Laird's 5-under-par 33-33=66 in the second round of the Waste Management Phoenix Open handed him a two-stroke lead at 10-under 132.

He settled for a bogey on the 18th hole at TPC Scottsdale moments after the horn blew at 5:47 p.m. MT to suspend play for the day due to darkness. The remaining players on the course are scheduled to resume at 7:45 a.m. barring any issues with the weather. Laird's round was the lowest of a cold and soggy day, and it featured six birdies to just the lone bogey on the par-4 18th. His 18'9" birdie on the par-5 13th was probably the turning point of the round, as he followed that up with a par at 14 and three consecutive birdies. At the time of his posting, he ranked first in strokes gained: tee-to-green. Of the 15 players still on the course, none have a chance to catch him. He is assured of playing in the final group on Saturday.
Jan 30 - 8:03 PM

Martin Laird carded a bogey-free 5-under-par 34-32=67 in the first round of the Waste Management Phoenix Open.

Laird was one of those that began his day on the 10th hole at TPC Scottsdale, and he got on the board with a chip in for birdie from 17'5" on the par-5 13th hole. He added a birdie on the par-4 17th, and then recorded the highlight of his round when he tapped in an eagle on the par-3 third hole from 4'7". His final birdie came a hole later at the par-3 fourth. He managed to keep his card free from bogeys despite finding the putting surface in regulation just 10 times. The Scot entered the week off a T15 in the Humana Challenge.
Jan 29 - 3:13 PM

Martin Laird enjoyed a 4-under-par 33-35=68 at La Quinta Country Club during his third round of the Humana Challenge.

The Scot hit just eight (of 14) fairways today but corrected those mishaps to avoid bogeys on all but one hole, the par-4 10th. Going back a few years, Laird now has rounds of 68 or better in 14 of his last 20 at the Humana. Sitting at 14-under 202, Laird makes for a very appealing dark horse to come from behind and take home the hardware this week.
Jan 24 - 7:40 PM

Martin Laird turned in a bogey-free, 6-under-par 33-33=66 in his second round of the Humana Challenge at Palmer Private at PGA West.

The Scot hit 16 greens in regulation and rattled in six birdies, including a try from 13'1" at the par-3 third hole. But it's how he played the par-3 15th that was most interesting. After rinsing his tee ball into the creek left of the green, Laird dropped beside the hazard. From that lie in the rough, he holed his third from 17 yards for the 3. He's 10-under at the midpoint, five strokes behind the 36-hole clubhouse lead and will wrap up his rotation at La Quinta Country Club on Saturday.
Jan 23 - 5:26 PM

Martin Laird looks primed for a big season ahead of this week's Humana Challenge.

The Colorado State product has simmered after a scorching T3, T18 start to the Fall Series but good news is on the horizon. His record at the Humana is promising as he's missed just one cut in seven attempts. Gamers will want to consider reinvesting this week as history often likes to repeat itself.

Jan 20 - 11:33 PM

Martin Laird started off 2014-15 with a bang and will enter the next calendar year ranked 28th in the FedExCup standings.

It was too little, too late for the Scot last season, as he waited for the final three events to find his form. That strong play carried over, transitioning to a pair of 20s to open this season, before cooling off with a 72nd-place finish followed by a missed cut. After a disappointing 2013-14 season, Laird looks like a strong candidate to bounce back, and find himself back in the Playoffs by end of year.

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.
