Sponsored Professionals

Paul and the Foundation have offered help and advice to the team; the objective is to get these guys to the next level. Keep your eyes peeled for these names as we hope they will be hitting the headlines in the future.

We currently support 11 Professionals making their ways on various feeder tours across the U.K. and Europe - David Law (Challenge Tour), Paul Shields (Challenge Tour), Ross Kellett (Challenge/EuroPro), Kris Nicol, Jordan Findlay, Ross Cameron, Craig Lawrie, Philip McLean (EDP Tour), Sam Kiloh (EuroPro Tour), Kevin Duncan (EuroPro Tour), Sean Lawrie (EuroPro Tour).

We also support several promising North East amateurs - Sam Locke, Michael Lawrie, Adam Fisher -  to help them maximise their potential.  As with the original players Paul supported (David, Kris, Jordan, Philip), the intention is to offer them mentoring and support from Paul.

 

  • David Law

    David Law

    Having supported David since he turned Professional towards the end of 2011, we are proud of his achievements to date. 

    David graduated to the European Challenge Tour in 2013/14 season thanks to his performances on the EDP Tour.  Then finished within the top 70 of the Challenge Tour Order of Merit, giving him playing rights for the 2014/15 season.

    David followed up an impressive amateur career (twice Scottish Boys Champion) by winning the Paul Lawrie Invitational event at Deeside in 2013 and the Northern Open at Murcar Golf Club in 2014 (having previously lifted the title as an amateur).

    David is also supported by Aberdeen Asset Management, Hunting Energy, Farmfoods

  • Craig Lawrie

    Craig Lawrie

    Craig turned Professional early in 2014 after a successful amateur career at Club level.

    His first season as a Professional was played mainly on the EuroPro Tour - GB&I based feeder tour where the top 5 from the Order of Merit gain playing rights on the European Challenge Tour.

    Some decent finishes in the second-half of his maiden season saw him chalk-up a couple of higher placed finishes.

    In what was almost his last competitive outing of 2014, Craig tied 7th in the Tomatin Pro-Am with scores of 73 69 71 over Royal Dornoch, Castle Stuart and Nairn courses.

    In 2015 he will look to make an impact on the EuroPro Tour and aims to finish well in the OOM standings come the end of the season.

  • Ross Kellett

    Ross Kellett

    Following a highly successful amateur career, Ross turned Professional and began competeing on Europe's tertiary teir tours.

    Ross gained his playing rights on the Challenge Tour in 2013, following on from a season finding his feet on the Alps Tour – one of the third-tier feeder tours.  His victory in the Italian Montecchia Open, which helped him to secure the top five spot necessary for graduation, was particularly notable since it happened the same week as the Aberdeeen Asset Management Scottish Open at Castle Stuart – he’d turned down a sponsors’ invitation from Aberdeen in order to concentrate his efforts on the Alps’ Order of Merit.

    He joined the Foundation's Golf Team on 1st January 2015 and hopes to play mainly on the Challenge Tour this season.
