PAUL LAWRIE - he's not been feeling 100 per cent - HOME TO REST

Professional golfers - even those in the world's top 50 - are not machines, as Tiger Woods proved once again with his mid-round retiral on the last day of the WGC-Cadillac Championship.
Similarly with Paul Lawrie. There was disappointment in Scotland that Paul went tumbling down the final standings with a five-over-par 77 to finish on five-over 293. His earlier rounds were 70-74-72.
Turns out, courtesy of Paul's Blog on his website, that the Aberdonian has been feeling under the weather and, under normal circumstances, he would not have gone out and played the final round over the Blue Monster at Doral, Miami.
Here's Paul's Blog:

"I haven't been feeling too well this week but last night (Saturday night) I was up coughing most of the night. I was going to pull out today (Sunday) until I found out you have to complete four rounds for the money to count on the order of merit and Ryder Cup points as well, so I decided to cough and splutter my way round, eventually shooting 77.
"This past week, even before today, I have really struggled with ball striking to control the speed of my swing. So the way I was feeling made it harder.
"I fly home tonight (Sunday) for a couple of days on the couch before going to Spain to defend the Andalucian Open."

Get well soon, Paul!
