The 23-year-old Irishman enjoyed a stellar amateur career, which included victories in Germany, Belgium and Scotland in 2019. He then turned professional after competing in the World Invitational at Galgorm Spa & Resort in August.
Lawlor is just one of a number of golfing stars in Modest Golf's growing stable, which comprises the likes of recent PGA Tour winner Tyrrell Hatton, and European Tour winners Guido Migliozzi and Christiaan Bezuidenhout.
The Dundalk native has a rare condition called Ellis–van Creveld syndrome, characterised by a shorter stature and shorter limbs.
However, despite his disability, he expresses with confidence that he is still able to lead a normal, happy and healthy life.
Lawlor said recently: "Disability golf is still very fresh, especially in Ireland. It could get bigger or it could go nowhere but this is the time to push it on as much as we can."
