    The Buzz: Lawrie's main interest growing up was football, but he didn't like the idea of playing for a team, so he turned to golf. At the age of 17 Lawrie turned pro. He won the Open Championship in 2009 and was the last European golfer to win a major until 2007. He created the Paul Lawrie Foundation to teach kids under age 18 the game of golf.
