Byrd had an aggregate score of 277 for the four rounds,

the FBR Open in Scottsdale, AZ the previous weekend. He earned
$162,066 at the FBR and followed that with a $313,200 check this
It marked the first time Byrd had recorded consecutive top
10 finishes since the 2004 season when he had a third-place at the 84

Southern Farm Bureau in the first weekend in October. He also had
consecutive top 10s in 2002 when he won the Buick Challenge and
finished fifth at the Southern Farm Bureau to close his rookie season.
