The autobiography of the remarkable Open Championship 1999 winner - Paul Lawrie. The story of the man who beat the odds and who remains the last golfer from Britain to claim the game’s greatest major championship. Includes a chapter on the 2012 Ryder Cup
This is the story of the man who beat the odds to claim golf's greatest major championship when he beat Jean Van de Velde in one of the most famous tournament climaxes in history. Lawrie remains the last golfer from Great Britain to win the Open.
Over the course of his 20-year career on the European Tour, Lawrie has won seven tournaments, represented Europe with distinction in the Ryder Cup and Royal Trophy, and Scotland in the Dunhill
and World Cups.
His career took a massive surge in 2012 resulting in his appearance for Europe in Chicago at the Ryder Cup, yet, even now, Lawrie the golfer is only rarely given the credit his sweetly rhythmical swing so clearly deserves.
For the first time since he lifted the Old Claret Jug skyward, Lawrie has taken the time to properly answer the ill informed and the unconvinced. At last, his life is an 'Open Book'.
