Joint first-round leader Paul Lawrie put it in reverse in Friday's second round at the KLM Open and carded a 1-over-par 37-34=71.
Still, with shots in the bank after his superb opening 61, the Scot will go into the weekend at 8-under 132 and that's just four behind leader Soren Kjeldsen. Lawrie was 1-under for the day after six holes but swallowed a double bogey-7 at No.7 and carded another bogey at 10. He followed that with seven straight pars but did at least manage a walk-off birdie at 18 to climb back to T12. Driving was the big problem today as he split just 3 (of 13) fairways. Lawrie found 12 greens in regulation but was just 3-for-6 in scrambling. Sep 11 - 1:42 PM

With an eagle, seven birdies and 10 pars, Paul Lawrie fired a career-low 9-under-par 28-33=61 to share the lead after day one of the KLM Open.

With the short par 70 at Kennemer there for the taking, Lawrie took full advantage and needed birdies at his final two holes to record a 59. However, with lift, clean and place in operation, it wouldn't have counted as the European Tour's first official sub-60 round. In any case, he parred both which, at that stage, gave him a two-shot lead. Surprisingly, he was caught late in the day by afternoon starter Wade Ormsby, the pair ending the day a shot in front of Richard Bland. Starting at 10, Lawrie's round took flight with an eagle-3 at 12 and he circled birdies at 14, 16, 17 and 18 to turn in just 28. He added three more on his second nine. Lawrie split just 7 (of 13) fairways but hit 15 greens in regulation and was 3-for-3 in scrambling. He'd shot his lowest round for two years when opening with a 65 in Denmark on his last start so here he knocked another four shots off it. "Sixty-one, it sounds good, doesn’t it? I played very nicely and putted very well again," said Lawrie.

Paul Lawrie hung up a 6-under-par 33-32=65 in his opening round at the Made In Denmark and sits in second place in the clubhouse after the completion of the morning wave.

The Scot split 9 (of 14) fairways and found 13 greens in the right number but it was his short game that paved the way for his lowest round on the European Tour for nearly two years. The former Open champion was a perfect 5-for-5 in scrambling and needed only 26 putts. Starting at 10, he picked off birdies at 15 and 18 and added further par breakers at 3, 4, 6 and 8 to finish just two shots behind early leader David Horsey.

Tournament host Paul Lawrie defeated Romain Wattel 5&4 to reach the second round of the European Tour's newest event.

Despite his busy build-up to the inaugural Saltire Energy Paul Lawrie Matchplay at Murcar Links in Aberdeen, the Scot needed just 14 holes to eliminate the young Frenchman. After Wattel fought back to level the match with a birdie at 3, Lawrie's local knowledge proved too much as he won holes 4, 5, 6, 9 and 11 to go 5up before he closed out victory with three straight pars. Tiredness may creep in at some point, especially when the 64-man straight knockout tournament reaches the weekend as two rounds are played on both Saturday and Sunday, but winning matches early will certainly help Lawrie's cause. Next up is a last 32 clash with fellow Scotsman Chris Doak, who beat England's Anthony Wall by 1 hole.

Paul Lawrie will act as tournament host as the European Tour stages a brand new event in his home town of Aberdeen this week.

The Saltire Energy Paul Lawrie Match Play will be held at Murcar Links Golf Club and the former Open champion is one of 64 players hoping to lift the trophy. Lawrie has played a key role in staging and promoting the tournament which will employ a straight knockout format over four days, with two rounds taking place on both Saturday and Sunday. The Scot, who was third at halfway in the Open Championship at St. Andrews before fading to T40, said, "My form is one of many reasons why I’m very excited about the week. It’s fantastic to be bringing another European Tour event to my home town of Aberdeen, after the Scottish Open was held at Royal Aberdeen last year." Gamers need to decide whether home advantage outweighs all the extra activities Lawrie has on his plate this week.

Paul Lawrie netted a 2-under-par 35-35=70 in his second round of The Open Championship.

A Scot in his native land is expected to solve the challenges of Mother Nature. Of course, that's not always how it works out, but Lawrie helped prove the theory. He totaled 14 greens in regulation during his disjointed second round and covered a lone bogey with three birdies. Most impressively, the 1999 Open champ played the last 14 holes in bogey-free 2-under. At 8-under 136, he's just two shots off Dustin Johnson's 36-hole lead.
Jul 18 - 2:38 PM

Scotland's own Paul Lawrie fashioned a 6-under-par 31-35=66 in his opening round of The 144th Open Championship.

The 1999 champ has yet to record another top 25 in this tournament, yet he here is just one swing back of the clubhouse lead at St. Andrews. Obviously, it's early, but it's better than all alternatives. Lawrie landed 13 greens in regulation and dropped seven birdies before a lone bogey at the par-4 17th hole.

Former Open champion Paul Lawrie kept a bogey off his card in a 4-under-par 35-33=68 at the BMW International Open in Germany on Thursday.

Lawrie has vast experience of this week's course, Golfclub München Eichenried, although he did miss seven cuts in succession at the par 72 before a T17 in 2010 when he opened 69-65. Today's opening lap started with an early birdie at 11 before further par breakers at 1, 5 and 9. The Scot's short game was his strength today as he went 5-for-5 in scrambling after hitting 13 greens in regulation and splitting only 7 (of 14) fairways. Right now, he's two behind leader Andrew Johnston.

Paul Lawrie continued his love affair with the Commerical Bank Qatar Masters by carding a 5-under-par 33-34=67 in the opening round.

Lawrie has his name engraved on the trophy twice having taken the title in 1999 - the same year he won The Open Championship - and again 13 years later in 2012. He plotted his way around Doha Golf Club in expert fashion once more on Wednesday, keeping a bogey off his card. The veteran Scot, who was 20th in Abu Dhabi last week, birdied three, five and seven to be out in three-under 33. He added another at 10 and a final par breaker at 16 to finish just two shots behind leader Oliver Fisher.
Jan 21 - 8:16 AM

Paul Lawrie has played in The Open Championship every year since 1992 and is back again this week.

Lawrie was the winner of the 1999 edition, and is also one of the players who has seen Royal Liverpool in competition back in 2006. He missed the cut that year. Unlike some past champions who are merely in attendance for a stroll down memory lane, Lawrie's been competitive here of late. He's made the last three cuts including a T26 last year. Given the success of the over-40 crowd the last few years, he's a decent option in deep leagues.

Paul Lawrie readies for his fourth World Golf Championships-Bridgestone Invitational.

Lawrie’s highlight was a T21 in 1999, with a T50 last year representing his most recent effort. He is in the field by virtue of his win at the 2012 Johhnie Walker Championship and as a member of the 2012 European Ryder cup team. A T32 in the U.S. Open and a T26 at The Open Championship have him arriving at Firestone in steady form.

Paul Lawrie enters the U.S. Open at Merion Golf Club ranked 43rd in the world.

The Scot hasn't played in a U.S. Open since 2004, and missed the cut in three of his four attempts. He's been on the slide lately, owning just one top 10 in 2013. That came in his first event, where he tied for seventh at the Volvo Golf Champions.

Paul Lawrie will tee it up in his seventh Masters this week.

Lawrie tied for 24th in 2012 in what was his first trip to Augusta National since a T37 in 2004. In all, he’s made three of his six cuts, with two top 25s. If you are looking for a sleeper to plug in with the hopes of just being around for the weekend, he could be a shrewd selection.

Paul Lawrie is set to take on Scott Piercy in the opening round of the World Golf Championships-Accenture Match Play Championship.

While Piercy is likely to be pick many American fans will flirt with, consider that Lawrie made it to the round of 16 last year. He knocked off Justin Rose and Ryo Ishikawa in the process before Martin Laird bounced him. While it’s not likely he will advance all the way through the Snead Bracket, he’s the kind of player that can bust your bracket.

Paul Lawrie defeated Brandt Snedeker 5 and 3 in their singles match at the 39th Ryder Cup.

Lawrie had yet to earn a point for the week, but made quick work of the American rookie in his lap around Medinah. The European won seven holes by circling four birdies and an eagle, twice winning with pars. Snedeker's first win came in the form of a birdie the par-5 10th, and he stayed alive by winning the par-5 14th with another birdie. It would be enough, as Lawrie closed out the match with a tap-in birdie on the par-4 15th. Lawrie and Snedeker each finish the week with 1-2-0 records. With this victory, the Europeans inched within two points of the Americans with 10 matches still on the course.
