SCOTTSDALE, Ariz. (AP) Martin Laird watched the ball disappear into the cup on the par-3 16th hole and put some elbow grease into his fist pump.
It certainly wasn't the most exciting moment on golf's most raucous hole. That belonged to Francesco Molinari, who made the first hole-in-one at the 16th on Saturday at the Phoenix Open since Tiger Woods in 1997.
But it was plenty important to Laird.
