Laird turns family guy.

Byline: Bernie McGuire

Martin Laird admits fatherhood has put his golf into perspective.

The US-based Scot has a pro career most on the PGA Tour would love, having won three times.

However, he looks set to drop out of the top 200 after missing the cut at the Valspar Championship.

He said: "Our first born, Andrew, has just turned two and we're due a girl in five weeks. Even with one child, it does put everything in perspective.

"Andrew has been travelling with us and if I was to have a bad round it's not that important when you see your son waiting for you.

"So after playing with him for five minutes, what happened out on the golf course doesn't matter."
