Lawrie Jnr turns his focus to playing professional golf

Craig Lawrie, the elder son of Ryder Cup star and major winner Paul, has joined the professional ranks.

Lawrie’s schedule will consist of a mixture of events on the Europro, EPD and Alps Tours and he will be supported by three principal sponsors - Aberdeen Asset Management, Hunting Energy (both of whom are also long-term supporters of Paul) and M I Swaco.

Speaking at a press conference where he renounced his amateur status, Lawrie said he was under no illusions that the transition from amateur to professional will be easy. He said: “I’m excited to test my game at a new level of competition. I feel like I’ve really improved in the last 6-12 months and the experience I’ve gained playing with dad in practice rounds as well as at his Invitational event in September and alongside Peter Baker in the British Par 3 Championships will all help when I tee up in my first event as a professional.

“I know how difficult it will be and how high the standard is at the top level but I am prepared to work and see what comes.”
