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.

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.

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.

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.

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 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 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 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 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.

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

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.
