'Solid' round cheers Lawrie
- From the section Golf
Former Open champion Paul Lawrie reflects on a first round 69 that saw him go into the clubhouse in a share of the lead, following eagles at the par five holes 13 and 15.
The Scot was returning to the game after a spell out with bronchitis and talks of his difficulty in getting used to the "speed of the greens".
Lawrie was one over at the turn before a back nine of 32 left him tied for fourth after the opening round.
