Laird Wins in Vegas in Playoff, Tour Remains in Town
Monday, October 12, 2020

    The PGA Tour remains in Las Vegas this week for the CJ Cup at Shadow Creek with its purse of $9,750,000. The event played at the Shadow Creek Golf Course was won last year by Justin Thomas, who shot 20 under par, two strokes better than Danny Lee.

    Sunday's windup at the Shriners Hospitals for Children Championship wound up in a three-way deadlock at 23 under among Martin Laird, Austin Cook and Martin Wolff. In the playoff, all three parred the par-4 18th hole. They went back to 17 and Laird, who made the event on a sponsor's exemption, won it with a putt of 23 feet for birdie. 

    It was Laird's fourth career victory and his first on Tour in more than seven years. He won the event in 2009 and finished second a year later.
