Lawrie takes lead at Johnnie Walker Championship

Paul Lawrie of Scotland shot a 5-under 67 in the third round of the Johnnie Walker Championship at Gleneagles on Saturday to take a one-stroke lead.
Lawrie's 12-under 204 puts him one ahead of Frenchman Romain Wattel, who shot a 9-under 63 to move into contention. Stephen Gallacher (65) of Scotland is another two shots back.
Lawrie, who will be making his Ryder Cup return next month after a 13-year absence, managed seven birdies in his round with just two bogeys in pursuit of his second Tour title of the year.
Lawrie says "I've never been asked to answer so many questions in my life, so I must be doing something right."
Wattel shot 10 birdies in his round as the 21-year old Frenchman seeks his maiden Tour success.
