Hoey advances as Lawrie crashes out
31 Jul 2015 21:09
Former Open champion Paul Lawrie admitted he was gutted to crash out of his own tournament with a "horrendous" performance against fellow Scot Chris Doak.
-
Lawrie lost by one hole in the second round of the Saltire Energy Paul Lawrie Matchplay at Murcar Links, with Doak advancing to the last 16 despite three bogeys and two double bogeys on his card.
-
"I hit it horrendous today and you can't get off with hitting the ball as poorly as that," Lawrie, 46, said. "I'm disappointed, gutted, but when you play like that at this level you seldom get away with it
-
"I can't hit the ball any worse than that to be fair but all the best to Chris. The two of us didn't play very well. We were all over the place at times and he made the four he needed to make at the last. That's match play."
-
Ballymoney man Michael Hoey advanced to the last 16 with a 5&4 win over Sweden's Kristoffer Broberg.
-
Hoey was four up by the turn and pressed home his advantage with birdies on the tenth and 12th holes.
-
He will face Frenchman Gregory Havret on Saturday morning for a place in the quarter-finals.
