Laird finished in a tie for 11th at the Valero Texas Open, after shooting an even par 72 on Sunday.
Laird initially vaulted up the leaderboard after opening his second round with five straight birdies, and a three-under 69 in his third round kept him near the top. Entering the final round Laird was sitting in fifth place on the leaderboard, and although he was four strokes back of eventual champion Andrew Landry, he still let a chance at a top-five finish slip through his fingers. The Scot opened his round Sunday with a bogey, and although he bounced back with a birdie on the eighth, he never got in any kind of scoring groove while most of the top 10 were posting rounds in the 60's. That still shouldn't take away from the excellent all-around performance from Laird, and he truly shined off the tee ranking in a tie for 10th out of the field in fairways hit, and fifth in SG: Off-the-tee. After Laird posted eight top-25 finishes in 2016-17 he's already nabbed four this Tour season, and he'll tee it up next in this week's Zurich Classic.
