Baird to undergo shoulder surgeries

By Brian Wacker, PGATOUR.COM

Briny Baird will undergo surgery on both shoulders and will miss the remainder of the season.

Baird, who hasn’t played since the HP Byron Nelson Championship, will have 5-7 millimeters shaved off his bone near his AC joint to alleviate increasing pain in his left shoulder. The procedure will take place Thursday.

He will have the same surgery on his right shoulder 60-90 days later.

Baird is “very encouraged” and expects to be ready to play at the start of the 2013 season.

In 13 starts this year, Baird made the cut six times with one top 25 -- a tie for 12th in Mexico.
