Paul Lawrie criticizes crowd behavior at Medinah
ST. ANDREWS, Scotland (AP) — Paul Lawrie wasn't just battling Brandt Snedeker as Europe won the Ryder Cup. He also had to contend with the Medinah crowd.
Lawrie, the oldest player on either team at 43, lost his opening fourballs match Saturday before beating Snedeker by 5-and-3 in the biggest singles victory on Sunday. But the Scot was unhappy at the behavior of the Chicago gallery, and said captain Jose Maria Olazabal dealt with the issue in meetings at the start of last week.
"I didn't get abused, but you get comments like: 'Top it! Shank it! You're going to lose.' Stuff like that on every shot you play," Lawrie said Wednesday. "Every single shot you hit last week, that's what you get. So apparently that's how it is."
