Lawrie Back In Top 50 After Win In Qatar

Paul Lawrie has finally made his way back in to the top 50 of the Official World Golf Ranking’s for the first time since 2003 after a superb performance gave him a second Commercialbank Qatar Masters.

The 43 year old Scot, chipped in twice during a brilliant closing 65 and beat Australian Jason Day and Swede Peter Hanson by four shots.

Lawrie has struggled since his famous 1999 Open Championship victory at Carnoustie, and less than a year ago he was 272nd in the Official World Golf Rankings. Now he is part of golf’s elite group again.

Winning the Qatar Masters guarantees him a place in the World Golf Championships-Accenture Match Play in Arizona later this month and the 24-man Volvo World Match Play in Spain in May.
