Lawrie in dazzling form over first nine at Gleneagles

Independent.ie reporters

Peter Lawrie was in brilliant form at the Johnnie Walker Championship in Gleneagles today.

The 37-year-old Dubliner reached the turn in a four-under par 32.

But he is not alone.

England’s Mark Foster grabbed four birdies in a row from the 11th as he kicked off another bid to register his first European Tour victory in nearly a decade.

The two led by two from Simon Dyson, Jeppe Huldahl, Ignacio Garrido and Wade Ormsby.

England’s Nick Dougherty was alongside them on two under par.

Ollie Fisher, the eventual winner in the Czech Republic on Sunday, was one over after eight, while Francesco Molinari was one over.

Paul McGinley stood one over after six.

Lawrie reached five under before bogeying the third.

Foster's good start continued with further birdies on the 17th and long 18th.
