UCD graduate and former UCD sports scholarship recipient, Peter Lawrie wins Spanish Open

Peter Lawrie made a 25ft putt to match Ignacio Garrido's birdie three and win the Spanish Open in Seville. He now moves from 88th to 12th on the Order of Merit, and into the 19th spot in the European Ryder Cup race.

With Lawrie's victory, Darren Clarke's Asian Open success, and Damien McGrane's China Open victory, there have been three Irish wins in a row in the European Tour.

Lawrie is a UCD graduate and a former recipient of a UCD sports scholarship. Other well known recipients of UCD sports scholarships include: Brian O'Driscoll, Trevor Giles, Alan Brogan, Bryan Barry, Derval O'Rourke, James Nolan, and Ciara O'Brien.

UCD sports scholarships help students to advance their sporting careers while studying at university by providing them with coaching/training of the highest level, access to sports medicine facilities, tuition fees, maintenance, books, equipment, and travel to national and international competitions. Each scholarship is valued on an individual basis by the relevant sports club and lasts for a minimum of one year.
