'Son's death changed my approach to golf' – European Tour hopeful Law


David Law won the Scottish Hydro Challenge in June

David Law is within touching distance of realising his dream of a European Tour card, 15 months on from the premature death of his first child.

The 27-year-old is one of four Scots in the top-15 qualifying spots before this week’s Challenge Tour Grand Final.

Law feels his perspective has changed since his son was stillborn.

“It was a hard time and since then golf has been secondary to that,” said the Aberdonian. “You start to realise it is not as important as you think it is.”

He told BBC Scotland: “I think it has helped this year having a bit more of a laid-back approach to it.”

Law is currently 12th in the Road to Ras Al Khaimah rankings
