THE OPEN CHAMPIONSHIP


July 21, 2012


Paul Lawrie


LYTHAM ST. ANNES, ENGLAND

PAUL LAWRIE:¬† Well, played lovely today.¬† Played magnificent tee‑to‑green, hit the ball really well.¬† I think I had 40 putts out there.¬† So it's kind of just‑‑ and four‑putted the last, which is nice.¬† I don't know why, I saw the line, just couldn't get the pace.¬† Just putted awful out there.¬† I think that's the worst I've ever putted in a tournament.¬† I played really good, hit the ball lovely.¬† Until I pushed it off 17, I made bogey, and then obviously the last was a four‑putt.¬† But apart from that the only shot I hit off line was the tee shot off 10.¬† I hit it in the rough and still found the green.¬† There you go.

Q.  (Inaudible.)
PAUL LAWRIE:  No, I had a lovely putt at the first, 25 feet, maybe.  Hit a good putt at the second, perfect pace.  And then I had a really poor one at 6.  And I had a lovely second shot in there and left it about 40 feet short.  And then hit it about six feet by.
Right from there just really struggled. ¬†Just couldn't‑‑ the greens were quicker today, but even then, it's just unbelievable how many I kept hitting five, six feet by from 25 feet.

Q.  (Inaudible.)
PAUL LAWRIE:  No, no, I've never, ever, ever in my career have I misjudged so many putts.  It was just frightening out there how many.  I don't even know what I shot.  What did I shoot?  Really, it's just incredible.  But that's golf.  There's not much you can do.  Go and work on it now for an hour or so.

Q.  (Inaudible.)
PAUL LAWRIE:¬† Well, I mean you just don't expect to misjudge.¬† You can miss putts but I'm talking about hitting it five and six feet by from 30 feet.¬† It's not even close to‑‑ it's like gone out of my hands almost out there, which I've never, ever experienced that before.¬† I hope I don't experience it again.¬† Because I hit it really good out there.¬† I hit the ball lovely.¬† That's the best I've played this week, and to shoot 6 over... but that's the way it is, unfortunately.

Q.  (Inaudible.)
PAUL LAWRIE:  It's just kind of go and do a bit of putting now.  Try and get the feel of it, try and get the pace a bit better.  I did a bit of putting this morning and rolled it really good on the putting green, hit a lot of good putts on pace because they said on the TV obviously the pace was a bit quicker than they were yesterday.  So I made sure I spent time this morning working on that on the putting green, and it felt good going out.  But just horrible out there with the putter.  Pity.
