AUGUSTA, Ga. — When the alarm went off Thursday morning at 5:45 in the house where Paul Lawrie is staying this week, he was in his thoughts. When Lawrie’s car-full of people pulled inside the gates of Augusta National Golf Club just around 7 a.m., he was in his thoughts. Same when he eagled the 13th. And the 15th. And almost certainly when he made the climb up the fairway to the 18th green to close out his first round.
He is always on Lawrie’s mind these days.
