Player Notes

Beginning in 2003, in cooperation with Canon U.S.A. Inc., and the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children (NCMEC), placed a photo of a local missing child on his golf bag at every PGA Tour event to raise awareness of missing children in the United States. As an additional component of Canon4Kids, for each birdie registered by Baird, Canon donates $100 to NCMEC, with additional donations for eagles and aces. Was MVP of high school soccer team. . .Father, Butch Baird, is a member of the Champions Tour. . .Says his biggest thrill in golf was "repeating as Division II champion and ending amateur career with a win."
