Age: 32 years old Place of Birth: Geelong, Australia Turned Professional: 2015
Deyen Lawson turned professional in 2015 and secured his PGA Tour card almost immediately at the PGA Tour of Australasia Tour School in January of that year.
He finished 21st on the Order of Merit that year and was on his way. Lawson has yet to win on a recognised tour but there have been several near misses, three of those when runner-up in events in New Zealand, Toowoomba and Darwin.
A 4th place finish at the New Zealand Open in 2017 is his best to date in a Tier One event on the PGA Tour of Australasia and that had followed a 7th place in the same event in his rookie season suggests a liking for golf in that country.
Lawson managed to secure his European Tour card for 2019 and in one of his early events received a great boost when he holed in one at the Alfred Dunhill Links Championship in South Africa to win a BMW 850 M auto. He would also hole in one a few months later in Qatar although there was nothing available for that feat.
At the completion of his rookie season in Europe he lost his status and was unable to regain it via the tour school so he will be playing the European Challenge Tour and the occasional European Tour event in 2020.
