Briny Baird made a clutch putt to save par on the 72nd hole of the Players here Sunday, making him the temporary leader in the clubhouse. He finished one under, in fourth place.
Baird scored with writers when he talked briefly with them outside the scoring area after his round. He summarized the tournament as neatly in two sentences as any Pulitzer winner could've.
"I don't care who wins the tournament," Baird said, "the wind won. It kicked everybody's butts."
No argument here.
