Byrd starts off new year with win in Hawaii

Golfer Jonathan Byrd started 2011 the same way he ended  2010, with a victory.

Byrd won his last event of the 2010 season in Las Vegas by making a hole-in-one in a three-man playoff.

Byrd opened the new PGA Tour season by winning the Tournament of Champions in a sudden-death playoff against Robert Garrigus, who missed a 3-foot par putt on the second extra hole in Kapalua, Hawaii.

The two golfers both shot 67 in the final round to finish at 24-under-par 268.

Byrd had a birdie putt on the par-5 18th hole for the win and missed. On the par-4 first hole in the playoff, Byrd’s 50-foot birdie narrowly missed. Garrigus ran it by 3 feet, and his par putt to extend the playoff hit the right lip.

It was the fifth career win for Byrd, and it earned him a trip to the Masters and the U.S. Open.
