Laird redeems himself in playoff to win once again in Las Vegas

LAS VEGAS (AP) – Martin Laird appeared like a winner with an unlikely par save money on the 71st hole of the Shriners Hospitals for Kid Open, over the cart course, under the trees, in between a set of bunkers and an 18-foot putt.

He needed to go back to the par-3 17th in a three-man playoff to end up the task with a birdie.

Laird ended 7 years without a triumph Sunday when he made bogey from the fairway on the last hole at the TPC Summerlin, and after that redeemed himself with a birdie putt from simply outdoors 20 feet on the 2nd additional hole to beat Matthew Wolff and Austin Cook.

“It’s been a while since my last one, and you have some doubts at times whether you’re going to get another one,” Laird stated. “I just played so well all week. This week, tee to green, was probably the best I ever played. To see that putt go in, it was pretty special.”

It was the 3rd time Laird has actually remained in a playoff in Las Vegas, all of them including 3 gamers. He won in 2009 for his very first PGA Trip triumph. He lost the list below year on the 17th when Jonathan Byrd made a hole-in-one in darkness.

What made this unique is Laird wasn’t even sure he would be playing.

While preparing for golf’s return from the COVID-19 pandemic, he torn the meniscus in his left knee and had surgical treatment, remaining the remainder of the season. He still had status that rollovered due to the fact that of the shutdown, however fell up until now down the list that he required as sponsor exemption for Las Vegas.

And after that he made it settle.

“Sometimes you come back and just want to be playing great right away. I knew it would be a process,” Laird stated. “I knew it was trending the right direction and I was coming to a course I love. But I wasn’t getting ahead of myself, thinking I was going to come back and win as soon as I did. Just makes it that much sweeter.”

He was No. 351 on the planet, the 3rd winner in the last 4 routine PGA Trip occasions to be ranked outside the leading 300.

Laird required a set of top-10 surfaces in opposite-field occasions at the end of the 2019 season simply to keep his card. Now the 37-year-old Scot is exempt through the 2023 season, and he’s headed back to the Masters in April.

The bogey on the 18th hole in policy provided Laird a 68 to fall under a playoff at 23-under 261 with Wolff and Cook, who each closed with a 66.

Laird appeared to have whatever going his method when he captured a buried lie near the lip of a bunker while dealing with a front pin on the par-5 ninth. He blasted away, turned his head and recalled to see the excellent shot drip into the cup for eagle. He played the hole in 7 under for the week.

It provided him a three-shot lead heading to the back 9. However he couldn’t hold it.

Prepare never ever truly disappeared, closing within one shot with a 40-foot birdie putt on the 17th and burning the edge of the cup on his birdie effort on the closing hole. Wolff was never ever far and shown up in an effective burst with a two-putt birdie on the obtainable par-4 15th, blasting a 375-yard drive on the par-5 16th and packing wedge to 10 feet for eagle.

Laird wobbled a bit down the stretch, however he provided the winner at the end.

Patrick Cantlay, who shared the 54-hole lead with Laird, was the greatest surprise of the day. Cantlay won the competition in 2017 and was runner-up each of the last 2 years. Fourteen of his 15 rounds at the TPC Summerlin were under par. He opened with 4 bogeys in 6 holes and didn’t make birdie till the 13th, closing with a 73.

U.S. Open champ Bryson DeChambeau closed with a 66, which was the worst he might have done. With an assisting wind, he played the par fives on the back 9 in 1 over. He likewise bogeyed the last from a bunker.

He connected for 8th in his very first look because ending up being a significant champ at Winged Foot, and he now returns to the laboratory – or the health club, in his case – for the next month prior to resurfacing at the Masters.

Abraham Ancer birdied the last 2 holes for a 67 to end up alone in 4th. Will Zalatoris closed with a 69 for a three-way tie for 5th, leaving him simply short of sufficient FedEx Cup indicates make unique short-lived subscription on the PGA Trip. His next possibility remains in 3 weeks in Bermuda.
