Gleneagles, Scotland - Scotsman Paul Lawrie has clinched a place on the European Ryder Cup team, 13 years after making his debut in the competition.

Lawrie, 43, played in the Ryder Cup in 1999, and secured his presence in Jose Maria Olazabal's side this year when Sergio Garcia won the delayed Wyndham Championship in North Carolina on Monday.

Lawrie is fourth on the European qualifying points table and now cannot be unseated no matter the outcome of this week's final qualifying events - the Johnnie Walker Championship on the European Tour and the Barclays Championship on the PGA Tour.

"It's nice and absolutely done. So chuffed to be in the team. It's been a long time. It's been 13 years since I played last time, so can't wait," said Lawrie.
