2010 Notes: Had a breakout year in his third Tour season despite not winning, but it's tough when you lose a playoff to a person that makes a hole-in-one, as Jonathan Byrd did to beat him at the Justin Timberlake, an event Laird won in 2009. Finished 11th on FedExCup list.

Finished T5th at the Players Championship. Concluded the year 74th in the FedEx Cup, marking just the second time since the 2008 season he has failed to advance to the BMW Championship.
2014 Notes: In a last bid to finish inside the top 125 in FedEx Cup standings and make the playoffs for the sixth time, claimed a T-14th at the Wyndham Championship to finish at 127th that ended his PGA TOUR season. Only two top-15 finishes among 20 starts came in his last two events of the season. At the Barracuda Championship in Reno, was one of only two players in the field to collect double-digit points in three of the four rounds in the Modified Stableford scoring event. Geoff Ogilvy, the event's winner, was the other. The T-6th finish was his first top-10 since a T-5th at the 2013 Players Championship.
2015 Notes: Opened the season at the Frys.com Open with matching rounds of 6-under 67 to carry a one-shot lead into the weekend. Went on to finish T-3rd (three shots behind champion Sang-Moon Bae) following a final-round, 1-under 71. At the Waste Management Phoenix Open, opened with back-to-back, 5-under 66s to take a two-stroke lead into the weekend. A third-round 68 extended his lead after 54 holes to three shots at 13-under 200. A Sunday struggle resulted in a 1-over 72 and an eventual T-5th with amateur Jon Rahm, three shots behind winner Brooks Koepka. Finished T-7th at the Farmers Insurance Open, recording his first back-to-back top 10s since stringing together three in a row in 2011. In 24 starts made 15 cuts and had three top-ten finishes.

During the COVID-19 break moved to Denver, Colorado but a week before rejoining the tour at the Charles Schwab Championship he collapsed at his home in excruciating pain in his left knee. The knee started bothering him on the West Coast swing but this time it was different. He went to the emergency room in a Denver hospital and found out he tore the meniscus in the knee and needed surgery, ending his 2020 season.
2021 Notes: The surgery was successful and he started playing at Cherry Hills outside of Denver. He made his first start in September at the Korn Ferry Lincoln Land Championship, finishing 65th. The next week he made it back to the PGA Tour at the Safeway Open, missing the cut. After playing at the Corales Puntacana and Sanderson Farms went to the Shriners Hospitals for Children Open and he won his fourth career title just four months after having knee surgery. Laird bogeyed his final hole to drop into a three-way playoff with Matthew Wolff and Austin Cook. Laird made a 20-foot birdie on the second extra hole to win the Vegas event for a second time. Since then his best finish was T-17th at the Sentry Tournament of Champions.
