The Scotsman will play in his seventh U.S. Open after advancing from the Columbus, Ohio, final qualifier. Four of Laird's six professional wins have come on the PGA Tour, the last being the 2020 Shriners Hospital for Children Open. It was the same tournament where Laird collected his first PGA Tour win in 2009. Laird captured four events during his four years at Colorado State, including the 2002 Mountain West Conference Championship. After turning professional, Laird competed on the Nationwide Tour (now Korn Ferry Tour) before gaining his PGA Tour card for the 2005 season via Q-School. Laird's cousin, David Weatherston, was a Scottish soccer player, while his wife's brother, Hank Franks, is a golf professional.
