Lawrie's career was transformed in 1999. After winning the Qatar Masters early in the season, he went on to win the 1999 Open Championship at Carnoustie in July. An unusual aspect of Lawrie's victory was that he was neither leader nor co-leader at any time during his regulation 72 holes, and he came back from the largest third-round deficit ever faced by a major championship winner; going into the final day, he trailed the leader, Van de Velde, by 10 shots. This is also the record for the biggest final-round comeback on the PGA Tour.
Lawrie has an immense passion for junior golfers and through the Paul Lawrie Foundation, he has reached thousands of juniors to build and maintain their interest in golf. In 2012, he bought the Aspire Golf Centre in Aberdeen, now called the Paul Lawrie Golf Centre, to continue developing and supporting the game for juniors.
