PETER LAWRIE was the master of the 513-yard 18th hole, scoring a birdie four on the last in each of the four rounds.

Lawrie's prowess on the 18th was a factor in finishing joint 10th, his highest placing in 17 outings on Tour this year.

No wonder the Dubliner will carry happy memories of 2013 away from this event. And he's not alone.

"The players are very impressed. When we came here in 2005 and 2006, it was a brute of a golf course but now it's tremendous. They've got the fairways fast, the greens are firm," he said.
