It had been 2,744 days. That’s when Martin Laird last won on the PGA TOUR. On Sunday in Las Vegas, he reset the timer back to zero. Laird withstood a three-man playoff and won the Shriners Hospitals for Children Open for his fourth TOUR win. But it was his first victory since 2013 at the Valero Texas Open. “It’s been awhile,” said Laird, who received a sponsor exemption this week. “I’ve been working hard. Seven years since my last one. I’ve been playing well the last few weeks and didn't have the results. But I love it here.” Yes, he does. Laird won the event in 2009 and lost in a playoff in 2010 (after Jonathan Byrd made an ace!), so Laird felt something special might happen at TPC Summerlin this week. And there were two moments on Sunday that defined his day. First, he holed out for eagle on No. 9 after having a brutal lie in a greenside bunker. Then he made a stellar up-and-down on the par-3 17th to maintain his one-shot lead in regulation. With the win, Laird moves to No. 4 in the FedExCup standings after pocketing 500 FedExCup points.
