PGA pay-day puts Lawrie in pole for Ryder Cup team
Paul finishes equal second at Wentworth
PAUL Lawrie woke up today with more than 300,000 reasons to smile after his second place finish at the BMW PGA Championship at Wentworth.
Lawrie earned a cheque for £312,000 after finishing joint second with Justin Rose – four shots behind winner Luke Donald, who finished on 14 under.
Former Open champion Lawrie said: “I got off to a great start by making eagle at the fourth and a birdie at sixth.
“I hit it really, really good all day and could easily have been a few less, but anytime you shoot 66 in the final round it’s a good day.”
“It’s another great week and loads of Ryder Cup and world ranking points.”
Lawrie is now second in the Ryder Cup points race and at 43 years old poised to return to the side an amazing 13 years after his only previous appearance.
