Byrd Pulls Out a Win...Off To Carnoustie

Jonathan Byrd must be smiling from ear to ear on his flight over to Scotland for the Open Championship. He shot a nice round of 66, where he birdied the 14th hole at the TPC Deere Run and added two more on 16 and 17 to pulled out a win at the John Deere Classic thus qualifying him for the Open Championship which starts Thursday. It looked like Tim Clark was all set for his first win but that will have to wait as a few bogeys down the stretch were his undoing. Byrd has also won 2 other times on tour, the 2002 Buick Challenge and the 2004 B.C. Open. He won't be a favorite at the Open Championship but he'll definitely have a big smile on his face, their's no doubt of that.
