Paul Lawrie

Paul Lawrie is a Major Champion who has been part of the European Tour since way back in 1992. Lawrie memorably became the first Scottish winner of the Open Championship in over a century after his miraculous victory back in 1999, which featured one of the most dramatic endings in recent memory.

Born in Aberdeen in 1969, Lawrie turned pro back in 1986 and got off to a solid start in the paid ranks. The Scot arrived on the European Tour in 1992 but spent much of the early part of his career in the shadows as a solid if unspectacular player.

Lawrie first entered the winners circuit on the European Tour in 1996 when he won the Catalan Open by one stroke from Fernando Roca. But. it was in 1999 though that Lawrie made the big breakthrough, famously lifting the Claret Jug on home soil at the Open Championship in bizarre circumstances.

Lawrie started the final round ten shots off the lead but forced himself into a play-off following the now famous capitulation of Jean Van De Velde. The Frenchman contrived to blow a three shot lead on the final hole which saw Lawrie, Justin Leonard and Van de Velde enter a play-off. It was the Scot who held his nerve to claim his first and to date, his only Major Championship success.

Lawrie has since never really threatened again in a major, although had a successful spell 18-month spell on the European Tour in 2011/12, winning three different tournaments, while he helpled Europe hoist the Ryder Cup in 2012.
