John Henry wins St Andrews Classic after Paul Lawrie lets lead slip on back nine

John Henry landed an unexpected Tartan Pro Tour win after Paul Lawrie, the circuit’s founder and commissioner, suffered a sore finish in the St Andrews Classic presented by Fugro.

After opening with rounds of 66 and 71 on the Jubilee Course then covering the opening ten holes in four-under-par, Lawrie was on course to come out on top in an event boasting one of the strongest fields in the tour’s short history.

But, after dropping seven shots over the closing stretch, including a triple-bogey 7 to finish, for a 75, the former Open champion and two-time Ryder Cup player had to settle for sixth spot as victory went instead to Henry.
