Lawrie highlights tough week for Scots


TURNBERRY, Scotland – Scot Paul Lawrie made an albatross-3 on the par-5 seventh hole on Sunday that was, all things considered, the highlight of the week for the home side.

Lawrie’s 4-iron from 213 yards lifted him into top-Scot honors, somewhere around 50th place. Adding to that competitive injury the Scottish had to endure a high-profile row between two of their top players – Sandy Lyle and Colin Montgomerie.

Best hope for the home side at this point is adopted Scot Tom Watson, who is so beloved on this side of the Atlantic he rates his own tartan.
