Paul Lawrie


PAUL LAWRIE: I played horrific on Thursday. It is what it is, you've just got to battle away. You've just got to battle away. It's a hell of a week, with a 10-over par round on the first day. Kind of proud I battled away and kept going, especially Friday. I never think it's over. I kind of battle away, and I kept going, which was nice.

Q. Can you take a lot of positive things out of this week?
PAUL LAWRIE: It's a decent week, but it's not a great week. But it's a great week after the start. So you take a lot out of the fact that you're going to finish near or the top 25. After a 10-over par round, yeah, you take quite a bit out of that.

Q. Did you think a score like that was out there for Poulter (inaudible).
PAUL LAWRIE: Not anymore today than other day. What score is he, 5-under today? It's a hell of an effort. I was 1-over, made a couple of mistakes. But 5-under par, he's obviously played some beautiful golf out there today. It's the same conditions out there. It's pretty blowy. The course is pretty tough. He's obviously played very well.

Q. (Inaudible.)
PAUL LAWRIE: The first I hit a little 9-iron to about four feet. I had a good chance at the second but missed it, and then holed it from about 12 feet on the third. And made 6 in the middle of the fairway at the 5th, which was disappointing. I had a terrible lie in the left rough. The bogeyed 6. Again, from the middle of the fairway. Had a beautiful 3-wood, 7-iron pulled it in the bunker. And then doubled 8. Just had a terrible time. Bogey, bogey, par, double. So apart from that today could have easily shot 2- or 3-under, but you make mistakes on a course like this, it's going to punish you.

Q. (Inaudible.)
PAUL LAWRIE: There's more to do, I think, for the Scottish boys. Well, no more to do than probably Tiger at this point. It's a great two weeks. I love it. I'd want to play in Scotland all the time. It's not any harder than playing anywhere else for me. It's more fun because you're playing in front of your own folks.

Q. (Inaudible.)
PAUL LAWRIE: Yeah, we traveled out at the start. After a 10-over par round on Thursday, to be in the position we're in, we're looking at a top-25 for the week.

Q. Did you go to Aberdeen on Friday (inaudible.)
PAUL LAWRIE: It's only two hours in the car from here. It's not a disaster. You would drive two hours in the car normally. It didn't put me off any on Saturday. I've been doing this a long time, so it's not going to affect what you do.
