Briny Baird

The son of Butch Baird, a two-time winner on both the PGA and Champions Tours, Briny Baird has the distinction of earning more money on the PGA Tour, $13,183,237, than any player without a victory. Which is not to say Baird hasn't come painfully close. He's been a runner-up six times, including last year at the McGladrey Classic, when he lost to Chris Kirk by a shot. Baird's relationship with his father is said to be distant, with the two falling out after Butch's divorce from Briny's mother in 1992.
