Golfer Lawrie flies in to Gleneagles with Ryder Cup


Scots golfer Paul Lawrie took the Ryder Cup to Gleneagles, the venue for the next match between the Europeans and the Americans.

Lawrie was still savouring the triumph of Europe's unlikely success in the Ryder Cup against the US in Medinah on Sunday.

He flew into the Perthshire course on helicopter with the trophy in hand.

Lawrie said: "It was a special victory because it's a tough crowd over there.

"You take it a bit in the neck from their spectators because they want the Americans to win badly, so to turn the score around from 10-6 down to win is just a huge achievement by everyone on the team.

"I don't think anyone wanted Jose Maria to be a losing captain so we wanted to make sure we did all we could for him."
