Aberdeen's Paul Lawrie has been named the European Tour's golfer of the month for February.

Lawrie has enjoyed a recent resurgence, beating a high-class field to win the Qatar Masters for the second time last month.

His recent form has moved him back into the top 50 in the world.

The 43-year-old edged out Spaniard Rafael Cabrera-Bello for the award, which is voted for by a panel comprising members of the golf media.
