The Aberdonian beat Brandt Snedecker 5&3 in the final day singles as Jose Maria Olazabal's team came from four points behind to defeat the United States, with the victory being named as the "Miracle in Medinah".
And for Lawrie it was extra special as the anniversary of the death of his close friend and ex- coach Adam Hunter is approaching.
Glasgow professional Hunter was the Scot's swing guru when he stunned the golf world and won the Open at Carnoustie back in 2009.
Lawrie said: "I think of Adam every day to be fair, not just this week. But he would've been proud of what I achieved, there's no question about that.
"To be six under par against a player of that quality he would've loved it, absolutely loved it and I'm sure he's looking down on me and is pretty proud."
Meanwhile, Lawrie has described being part of the team that recorded a 14.5-13.5 win over the United States against all the odds as "awesome".
He said: "I'm proud of every person in the team and pretty proud of myself to go out and perform like that under the utmost pressure against a tough crowd.
"It feels pretty awesome, to be fair."
The United States required only four-and-a-half points from the 12 on offer in the final day.
But the Europeans secured eight and a half to clinch a historic 14½-13½ win.
Victory against Snedeker in the singles left Lawrie with his first victory after two losses in Medinah in the foursomes and fourballs.
And the Scot revealed some harsh words from Olazabal following a poor display on the first day had a galvanising effect.
"Jose made sure that every person in that room knew that he believed, not only that we could tie, but we could win," said Lawrie.
"When someone like Jose, with the record he had as a player in the Ryder Cup with Seve [Ballesteros], tells you he believes in you, then it's pretty hard to wake up and not feel pretty good about yourself.
"Ian Poulter was huge – five birdies in a row to finish on Saturday. You don't realise how good that is when the crowd is tough.
"Every single person wanted to play early and that was huge. Everyone wanted to be out there putting their neck on the line to get some points back.
"[The feeling was] if you're going to win this, win it early. If you lose two or three of the first five games then you're dead; there's no way you can come back from that.
"We had to win the first four or five. To be put out at number five, I got a huge lift from that, there's no question. I played lovely and was six under par against a guy who won the Fed Ex last week.
"I'm proud of every person in the team and myself."
