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. Jun 25 - 9:09 AM

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.

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.

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 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.
