Peter Lawrie has not been seen on a leaderboard for a long, long time, but changed that with a 3-under-par 35-34=69 in the second round Trophée Hassan II.
The Irishman heads into the weekend T5 on 4-under 139, two off the lead, and will be hoping to kickstart a career that has had a significant period of stagnation. His last top ten finish on the European Tour came in June 2013 and his last top five was even further back, in November 2012. If he is to change that this weekend it might be down to his short game, after he saved par 10 times from 13 missed greens in the opening rounds, and required just 55 putts. On Friday he ticked red numbers at 12, 14, 16, 1 and 5, chalking bogeys at 4 and 7. Fri, May 6, 2016 02:11:00 PM
