“A Beautiful, Pure Shot” – Paul Lawrie 1999 | My Greatest Shot

If you were asked to compile a list of the greatest sporting comebacks of all time, there is a risk Paul Lawrie would be forgotten.

In 1999, at the 128th Open, Lawrie hit a brilliant tee shot down the narrow fairway, drilling it flush to put himself in a commanding position and with his maiden major – and golfing immortality – within touching distance.

And then came his Greatest Shot, an eye of the needle, perfectly executed 4-iron that sent the thousands congregated by the green into collective golfing raptures.

Paul Lawrie tells the story of this historic moment from Carnoustie.
