The Paul Lawrie Match Play is a golf tournament on the European Tour that is played annually in Scotland. The inaugural tournament was played from 30 July to 2 August 2015 at Murcar Links Golf Club in Aberdeen. The tournament's host is eight-time European Tour winner and 1999 Open Champion Paul Lawrie.
The event is a 64-man single-elimination match play tournament, with one round played on each of the first two days and two rounds on the last two. The European Tour's exemption categories are used to select most of the field, with two spots reserved for invitations, three for the leading three non-exempt players in the Race to Dubai rankings, and beginning in 2016, one for the winner of a qualifying tournament for Scottish professionals. The thirty-two players in the field who are highest in the Race to Dubai are seeded one to thirty-two and prevented from facing each other in the first round; the remainder are randomly drawn into the bracket.
