Proud Scotsman Martin Laird returns to defend his sole Tour title in the penultimate event of the PGA Tour Fall Series at Summerlin starting on Thursday.
Online bookmakers are offering free bets to new customers signing up during the Justin Timberlake Shriners Hospitals for Children Open at TPC Summerlin in Las Vegas this week.
The 27-year-old has been plying his trade on the PGA Tour since turning professional in 2009 and is easy to recognise on the course as he proudly sports the Scottish flag on his belt and golf kit.
He captured last year’s event after winning a three hole play-off against Chad Campbell and 2007 winner George McNeil and Extrabet are offering odds of 45/1 for him to retain his title.
Laird amassed $1.3million in an excellent first season and has continued with 2010 earnings over $1.75million, second place in The Barclays is his best result this year which has included 3 top ten finishes.
Laird tees off in the first round at 8.08pm (BST) with playing partners Matt Bettencourt and Derek Lamely from the tenth tee.
US Ryder Cup player Rickie Fowler is the star of the event where proceeds go in support of Childrens Hospitals and he will tee of at 3.19pm with Bryce Molder and Graeme DeLaet.
Fowler’s Ryder Cup team mate Hunter Mahon also takes part, teeing off with Nick Watney and Trevor Immelman at 3.28pm.
