Death: Jan. 20, 1948
Saint Andrews, Scotland

Lawrence "Laurie" Auchterlonie was a Scottish professional golfer. He was a native of St Andrews, the "Home of Golf". In 1902, representing the Chicago Golf Club, he won the eighth U.S. Open at Garden City Golf Club in Garden City, New York. Auchterlonie's win was the first time that 80 was broken in all four rounds.

Auchterlonie competed in the U.S. Open eleven times, finishing in the top ten on seven occasions. His other victories included the 1901 Western Open. He died in St Andrews at the age of 80.

Laurie Auchterlonie was the brother of Willie Auchterlonie, who won the British Open Championship in 1893. Willie Auchterlonie had a son named Laurie who was to succeed his father as honorary professional to the Royal & Ancient Golf Club of St Andrews. This Laurie Auchterlonie should not be confused with his uncle the U.S. Open winner in 1902.
