Byrd Still Is The Word

Byrd is the Word was the headline I wrote in my post dating back to last October when Jonathan Byrd won with an amazing ace in a three-way playoff at the Justin Timberlake Shriners for Children Hospital Open tournament. Byrd seems to have a thing for playoffs lately (Two wins in playoffs in a row) and for getting lots of birdies (T3 at Kapalua). Although he only needed a par to beat Robert Garrigus on the second hole of a playoff at the Hyundai Tournament of Champions on Sunday.

Byrd is a golfer who exudes cool, calm and collectiveness. Sunday at Kapalua he seemed in a zone, out hitting his Mizuno irons around the golf course making some birdies all with little fanfare . Byrd is as non descriptive as they come in his Polo golf shirt and khaki pants. But that's ok now he knows where he'll be next year come the first week in January. Hitting his Mizunos for birdies. See ya next year
