About Paul



Paul was born in Aberdeen and brought up in Kemnay and started his professional career as an assistant to Doug Smart at Banchory golf club in 1986. It soon became evident that Paul was set to be a player and after a few years on the Tartan tour he got his European Tour Card in 1991 and the first of his 8 European tour victories came at the Catalonia Masters in 1996. Paul’s most memorable win came at the Open at Carnoustie in 1999 coming from ten shots back in the final round to eventually win in a playoff.

After two Ryder cup appearances, three Seve Trophy, a Royal Trophy and over 500 events on the European tour Paul knows a thing or two about the game of golf and he wants the Paul Lawrie Golf Centre to be the best facility in the country.
