Paul Lawrie support Paul McGinley as captain

Posted by Admin On 11:29 AM

Paul Lawrie has applauded the decision to keep Paul McGinley as Britain and Ireland captain for next month's Vivendi Seve Trophy in Paris. But the former Open champion's response to the amateur Walker Cup team to take on the Americans at Royal Aberdeen in two weeks was not quite the same.
I think surprise would have been the first reaction,said Lawrie of the oversight of twice Scottish champion David Law, a player he mentors.And then perceptibly when you find out that there's someone been chosen that's 121 places below David in the world rankings then it becomes more shock than anything.
While Law is ranked 87th Northern Ireland's Alan Dunbar is down at 208th.It's my view (that) whenever you have the team chosen the way they do it I don't think they have the 10 best players on the GB and I team - and until you get that, you're always going to risk losing,added Lawrie.
The 42-year-old returns from a five-week break for the Johnnie Walker finals at Gleneagles starting on Thursday. After ending nine years without a victory in Spain earlier this year Lawrie still has a chance of making the Seve Trophy team for the first time since 2003.
McGinley was in charge for the win two years ago and on his re-appointment Lawrie commented: He proved he was a good captain - everyone had positive things to say about him.It seems like they are putting Paul strongly in location to be the (Ryder Cup) captain at Gleneagles in 2014, which I think is a good move.
