One of the graduates from Paul Lawrie’s foundation has secured a place alongside him at the forthcoming 150th Open at St Andrews.

David Law will tee up in his first major after claiming one of the three places on offer to players not already exempt who finished in the top 10 of the Horizon Irish Open on Sunday.

Lawrie, who set up his foundation two years after lifting the Claret Jug at Carnoustie in 1999, said: “It’s great news for the foundation that someone’s come through to not only get on Tour and then win on Tour, but then play in his first major.”

Lawrie has been supporting The 150th Open Championship Claret Jug Tour which was on display on board the Royal Yacht Britannia ahead of this year’s tournament at St Andrews.

It will also be displayed in Edinburgh at HSBC in Hanover Street on 5 July and at the City Art Centre on 6 July.

The Jug Tour has included schools, golf clubs, city centres and HSBC branches across the UK and Ireland.
