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.

Paul Lawrie recorded a four-stroke victory at the Johnnie Walkie Championship at Gleneagles at The Gleneagles Hotel in Auchterrarder, Scotland.

The native Scot slept on a one-stroke margin entering today's finale, and then closed with a 4-under-par 34-34=68 to secure the win at 16-under 272. Brett Rumford earned runner-up honors at 12-under 276. Lawrie was the only golfer in the field to card four rounds in the 60s. It's his second title of the season and eighth career on the European Tour, three of which have occurred in his homeland. Remember, he elected not to compete in the U.S. Open in order to focus on a berth in the Ryder Cup. He automatically qualified for the biennial competition at the conclusion of today's event.

Paul Lawrie followed his opening 65 at the British Open with a 1-over-par 33-38=71 in his second round.

He hit 11 greens in regulation for the second consecutive round, but offset four birdies with a bogey and two doubles today. He reached the midpoint in 4-under 136, six strokes off the 36-hole clubhouse lead.

Paul Lawrie carded a 5-under-par 32-33=65 in his opening round of the British Open, finishing one stroke off the clubhouse lead.

The 1999 champion of this tournament has enjoyed a return to relevance and form this season. Among his six top 10s was a win in Qatar and a T2 at the BMW PGA Championship. At Royal Lytham & St. Annes today, he split 10 (of 14) fairways and hit just 11 greens, but he limited the damage to one bogey while picking up three birdies on each side.

Paul Lawrie announced this week that he'll forego a spot in the U.S. Open to focus on accumulating points for a berth into the Ryder Cup.

"I am not going to play the Nordea Masters in Sweden the week before the U.S. Open either because there is a long run of events after that and if I am to miss an event on the schedule then it is the US Open," the Scot said. "My record in the U.S. Open is not good and I understand that it is a major but I feel I have more chance of playing well at the BMW International Open the week after the U.S. Open. ... I know people are going to be surprised when they learn this but I stand more chance of earning Ryder Cup points at the BMW in Cologne than in the U.S. Open. ... It’s a decision I had been thinking about for a long time but if you know you can’t compete in a particular tournament then why go? It’s a big call and a lot of people are going to say I should be playing but you have to do what you feel is best. My goal right now is to make the Ryder Cup team so I have to set in place a schedule where I feel I can earn the most Ryder Cup points."

Paul Lawrie followed his opening 69 at the Masters with an even-par 37-35=72 to reach the midpoint in 3-under 141, just two strokes back of the clubhouse co-leaders.

Lawrie was an early clubhouse leader on Thursday but failed to capitalize on his position today. The positive spin is that he didn't shoot his way out of the tournament, not to mention that he closed birdie-birdie-birdie to avoid posting a black number.

Paul Lawrie carded a 3-under-par 37-32=69 in his opening round of the Masters, good for early possession of the clubhouse lead.

Despite discussion on Wednesday, the field is playing the ball down today. Lawrie had nothing going over his first 12 holes. He swallowed a bogey at the par-5 eighth hole and surrounded it with 11 pars. He then eagled the par-5 13th and par-5 15th holes, springing to life. The Scot closed birdie-bogey to become the first to post a number. The threat of rain and storms remains in the forecast for late today, but the weather has been glorious thus far.

Paul Lawrie eliminated Ryo Ishikawa 1 up in the Snead Bracket in the second round of the World Golf Championships-Accenture Match Play Championship.

After opening with two halves, the duo exchanged wins for the next five holes after which Lawrie held a 1-up advantage. He wouldn't relinquish it despite losing a hole after each of the three he won thereafter. That included giving up the par-4 17th to Ishikawa's par. However, both parred the closing hole, thus ending Ishikawa's stay in the desert. Lawrie advances to face fellow Scot Martin Laird in Friday's third round.

Paul Lawrie downed Justin Rose 1 up in the Snead Bracket in the opening round of the World Golf Championships-Accenture Match Play Championship.

This is Lawrie's first appearance in the tournament since 2003. That was the same year Rose made his first of seven appearances. They sat all square through six holes today before the Scot won the seventh and eighth holes with pars. Rose won three holes thereafter but never evened it up as Lawrie claimed two. The duo halved the final three before Rose ran out of golf course. Lawrie advances to face Ryo Ishikawa in Thursday's second round.

Paul Lawrie recorded a four-stroke victory at the weather-shortened Qatar Masters at Doha Golf Club.

After strong winds wiped out play on Friday, Lawrie emerged atop the leaderboard after 36 holes were in the books on Saturday. His closing bogey-free, 7-under-par 33-32=65 shared low round of the day. He concluded 54 holes in 15-under 201. Jason Day and Peter Hanson shared runner-up honors at 11-under 205. Lawrie played a nearly flawless final round, hitting 16 greens in regulation and taking just 27 putts. He chipped in for his final birdie at the 17th hole. This is his seventh career victory on the European Tour. He should climb inside the top 50 of the world ranking once the results of the Waste Management Phoenix Open are plugged in. The Scot would then become exempt into the WGC-Match Play when that deadline for entry falls next week. Today's victory automatically qualifies him into the WGC-Bridgestone Invitational in August. He's setting up to be a decent complement in fantasy formats as a non-member in the big events.

Paul Lawrie recorded his sixth European Tour victory at the Andalucia Open, finishing at 12-under 66-67-65-70=267, one stroke clear of Johan Edfors.

The 42-year-old Scot hasn't won anywhere since claiming the Wales Open in 2002, and remains best known for winning the British Open (1999) that Jean Van de Velde lost. Lawrie started his final round poorly, with three bogeys on his first five holes, but found a groove after the turn, with birdies at the 10th, 11th, 12th and 14th holes. A bogey at the 72nd hole was insignificant as he arrived at the last with a two-stroke lead after Edfors finished par-par-par.
