Laura Murray's attitude, worth ethic and personality impressed Paul Lawrie (image by Cal Carson Golf Agency, click to enlarge).

Laura Murray joins Paul Lawrie team for 2010


Paul Lawrie has added Scotland women's amateur international Laura Murray from Alford to his Foundation team for 2010.
"Laura will wear our logo throughout the year on Glenmuir clothes provided for her. She will also receive Titleist balls and will be included in my team golf days where I play 18 holes four or five times a year with them," said the 1999 Open champion.
"I have been very impressed with Laura's attitude, work ethic and personality."
Already members of the Paul Lawrie Foundation team are David Law (Hazlehead), Scottish boys' and men's amateur champion, Tartan Tour pros Ross Cameron (McDonald Ellon) and Graeme Lornie (Kings Links) and Peterhead youth cap Philip McLean.
" I normally meet three of them at a time. We play 18 holes and have lunch. I pass on course management tips and which type of shots to play in certain situations. I try not to coach them as they all have their own coaches.
"Adam Hunter works on the short game with them all. They normally see Adam five or six times a year. We are currently trying to give them some funding but that's not confirmed at the moment."
Laura Murray, 21, is also a member of Murcar Links and Aboyne golf clubs. A former Robert Gordon University student, she is a full-time amateur who makes some pocket money, working as a swimming pool life guard at the Kippie Lodge Sports Club at Milltimber near Aberdeen.
Last week she almost became the first female to win a North-east Alliance competition. Her scratch 66 at Murcar Links was pipped by late finished Scott Larkin's 65.
"It's great that Paul Lawrie has made me a member of his team. That will be a big help to me. I am aiming to make this my last year as an amateur, playing in all the big tournaments and hopefully I'll be ready to have a go at the Ladies European Tour Qualifying School near the end of the year," said Laura.
