LAS VEGAS (AP) — Martin Laird is a winner in Las Vegas again thanks to the 17th hole.
He made a most improbable par in regulation to hold onto a one-shot lead.
Laird bogeyed the final hole to fall into a three-way playoff.
And then on the 17th, he made a birdie putt from just outside 20 feet to beat Matthew Wolff and Austin Cook in the Shriners Hospitals for Children Open.
Laird also won the tournament in 2009 in a three-way playoff.
But he had gone seven years without a victory, and he needed a sponsor exemption just to get into the tournament.
