Gift Wraps


FARMINGDALE, N.Y. – Briny Baird is discovering the way to a New Yorker’s heart is through his stomach.

At several turns Tuesday in his practice round, Baird heard the refrain: “Thanks for the wrap, Briny!”

Baird’s excellent shot making won free chicken lettuce wraps at P.F. Chang’s for adults across the nation with the purchase of an entrée at the restaurant.

“People yelling out thanks is pretty common out there, it’s funny,” Baird said.

If you missed it, Baird won the wraps for customers of P.F. Chang's by climbing to the roof of the Omni San Diego Hotel last month and hitting a bull’s-eye painted 375 feet below in right field of Petco Park. All he had to do was hit it once with 10 golf shots as part of the promotion, but he hit it eight times. He also won $25,000 for the San Diego Navy/Marine Corp Relief Society. Baird counts P.F. Chang’s among his sponsors and wears the company logo on his hat.
