A superb win for Scotland’s Martin Laird late last night in the Texas Open has ensured that he will be travelling to Augusta this week to compete in the Masters which starts on Thursday.
Laird started the day five shots behind leader Billy Horschel, but was soon to catch up with four birdies early on on in his round.
It was Northern Irishman and No.2 in the world Rory McIlroy who ended up being Lairds nearest rival. McIlroy will be going into the Masters feeling a lot better after a good competitive week of golf and being in the last couple of groups once again.
Well Thursday is all set to be a great day in the golfing calender as we see the start of one of my favourite tournaments in the world.
