Martin Laird Witb

Martin Laird secured his fourth PGA Tour title at the Shriners Hospitals for Children Open after putting on a ball striking masterclass from tee to green.

Using his PING G410 driver he ranked T5 in driving accuracy, finding 44 of 56 fairways and ranked an impressive 15th on driving distance, averaging 323 yards from the tee across the four rounds.

The Scotsman found over 80% of greens in regulation using his Srixon Z785 irons and finished the week ranked second in Strokes Gained: Tee to Green

The undoubted highlight of Laird’s final round was his astonishing holed bunker shot on the par-5 9th. Using one of his Cleveland RTX4 wedges he managed to dislodge his Srixon Z-Star ball from a truly horrific plugged lie to make a crucial eagle at the turn.
