Past Fantasy Outlooks
Baird is a journeyman who turns 40 in May, which means his best days are likely behind him - and his best days weren't that great to being with, relatively speaking. To his credit, he secured his card for the 2012 season while playing with less than full privileges last season. His prospects for this season don't look very good, however, as he hasn't topped $2 million since 2008.
Baird has been on Tour for a quite a while and he's seen his share of peaks and valleys. Baird earned just over $1.1 million in 2009, and while he did earn over $2 million in 2008, it's doubtful we'll see that again this season.
Baird was the model of consistency last year, but he failed to crack the top-three at any event. The consistency should again be there in 2009, as will the lack of a top-three finish.
If there is a tournament being played on the PGA Tour, then Baird will be there. How else can you explain someone that made nearly a million dollars, yet only had one top-10 and nothing higher than ninth? Baird has been a pretty decent player over the last five years, but he set the bar a little too high in 2003 when he earned over $2 million. He's not at that level.
Baird is a good player who hit the wall in 2004. The next year wasn't much better, but he started to make his way back in 2006. His all-round ranking in 2006 was 25th. Again, that does not always equate to success, but it's still good to have solid stats. Baird's upside is pretty high as he proved a few years back when he topped $2 million. Baird should continue his upward trend in 2007.
