The Golf Power List: 40-31
37. Paul Lawrie, professional golfer, golf club owner and head of the Paul Lawrie Foundation
Winning one of the most famous Opens in history in 1999 has meant that Paul has stamped his name on the game forever.
And in doing so he has been able to pursue another passion than simply playing golf: His foundation has helped introduce golf to thousands of children.
Not only that, but Paul, who is having a great 2012 as a player, this summer bought Aspire Golf Centre in Aberdeen, which has been renamed as the Paul Lawrie Golf Centre, ensuring his association with golf will continue for many years to come.
