Baird stalls at Buick

June 22, 2003

Harrison, NY-Former Valdosta State All American Briny Baird came up short in his bid to win his first ever PGA tournament this weekend at the Buick Classic.  Baird, the leader by one stroke after two rounds, fired a one over par 72 in the third round which was completed Sunday morning due to heavy rain on Saturday. 

Although he was still tied for the lead heading into the final round, Baird faltered down the stretch, carding a 77 and tying for 30th at 3 under par for the tournament. 

Jonathan Kaye however would not be denied his first tour win. Kaye birdied the 18th to force a playoff with John Rollins and then eagled the 18th on the playoff to win the Buick Classic.
