Paul Lawrie Foundation to Sponsor Scottish Girls' Championship
24th February 2012

Paul Lawrie has furthered his support for junior golf with the announcement that his Foundation will sponsor the Scottish Girls' Championship to be held on the Craighead Links at Crail in July.

The event which will become the Paul Lawrie Foundation Scottish Girls (Close) Championship began in 1958 when the trophy was presented by the legendary Helen Holm. It has been won by many who now play their golf on the professional circuits including Catriona Matthew (as Catriona Lambert), Janice Moodie and Mhairi McKay. Vikki Laing who competes on the Ladies' European Tour won the event a record four times in a row from 1996 to 1999.

The Paul Lawrie Foundation, which was established in 2001, has a programme for golfers under the age of 18 that gives them the opportunity to try golf and encourages them to develop their sporting potential in a relaxed and fun environment.

Paul said "I am very pleased that the Foundation is able to support such a great event. National championships are major events on the junior calendar and I am sure the sponsorship will only enhance what is already a fantastic event".

Shona Malcolm, SLGA Chairman, said "The SLGA is delighted that the Paul Lawrie Foundation is to sponsor the Scottish Girls' Championship. Paul's commitment to the development of young Scottish golfers is second to none, and there is no doubt that his support will enhance the competitiveness and profile of the Championship. The players will be so excited to have the former Open Champion taking an interest in girls' golf, and they could not have a better role model to follow."

The Scottish Ladies' Golfing Association, founded in 1904 and incorporated in 2006, is the governing body for ladies' and girls' amateur golf in Scotland.
