Stonehaven juniors learn secret of Paul's success: Short-game practice

PAUL Lawrie had a simple message for young golfers when he handed over prizes to juniors at Stonehaven Golf Club today.
It was: "If you want to make a living at golf, concentrate on practising your short-game skills."
The former Open champion said he spends as much as 70 per cent of his practice time on chipping and putting and he urged youngsters to do the same if they wanted to improve their game significantly.
Paul’s remarks came during an entertaining question-and-answer session in a well-filled clubhouse.
Later, club captain Sandy Walker conferred an honorary life membership of Stonehaven Golf Club on Paul in recognition of the support he has given the junior section in the last few years.
