Paul Lawrie is still looking for steady progress, despite returning to the elite group of world golfers by securing his place in the US Masters.
The Aberdonian golfer finished runner-up in the 2011 Dubai Championship and has started the year in fine form, winning the Qatar Masters.
Lawrie is currently ranked 46th in the world and with the top 50 qualifying for the US Masters he will be part of the tournament in Augusta, Georgia.
Despite returning to the tournament for the first time in eight years, Lawrie is keeping modest expectations ahead of teeing off on the 5th April.
He said: "I'm not a goal-setter. I try to play the best shot I can wherever I am in the world.
"I wish I was a good enough player that I could tell people I'd be in contention, I'm not at that level unfortunately. But I'll be going over there to give it 110% and see what happens."
Despite playing down expectations, Lawrie is feeling positive about his own game.
He said: "Everything has just been a wee bit better. I've been putting a little better, mentally I've been quite good, I've been swinging it well and hitting it a bit further.
"All these things add up and you start winning some points and your confidence gets a bit of a bolt and off you go."
