Martin Laird survived a sudden collapse in the final round to become a surprise winner at Bay Hill in Orlando, Florida.

In the most competitive round of golf on the PGA Tour this year, Laird came back from a three-shot deficit in the final four holes. He converted two birdies and two unbelievable pars to close the tournament with a 3-over-par 75 to win the Arnold Palmer Invitational by one shot over hard-luck golfer, Steve Marino.

Laird, a 28-year-old Scot, became the first European to win at Bay Hill in its 33-year history.

Justin Rose closed with a 68 and tied for third with David Toms and Marc Leishman, who needed to win to get a chance to play in the Masters next month.

Kuchar continues his best season by winning The Barclays tourney

Matt Kuchar in 2010 is having his best season on the PGA Tour. The only blemish was a win.

He has a win now. Kuchar was victorious in The Barclays with a fantastic shot out of the rough to beat Martin Laird with a birdie in a playoff. The win assures him of being at East Lake in Atlanta, which the Georgia Tech alumnus says is his home course; to play in the Tour Championship for the first time ever.

Kuchar moved up to Number 1 in the FedEx Cup, Number 1 on the PGA Tour money list and a career-best Number 10 in the world rankings.

You can’t write about golf without the name Tiger Woods being brought up.

The Number 1 golfer in the world improved dramatically in The Barclays. He tied for 12th and advances to Boston for the second round of the FedEx Cup playoffs.

Woods basically had bookend days where he was sensational; meaning he was at his best on Thursday and Sunday and not so good on Friday and Saturday.

Woods has not won a tournament in nine months, which seems strange that he is still Number 1 in the world. He had one goal in The Barclays and that was to finish in the top 100 in the FedEx Cup standings to qualify for the second round of the playoffs at the TPC Boston. Woods shot a 67, the first time since the Masters that he broke 70 in the final round. He moved from Number 112 at the start of The Barclays to Number 65.
