Despite a seventh-place finish in the Volvo Golf Champions event in January, the 44-year-old has struggled to recapture the blistering form that carried him to two European Tour victories and a Ryder Cup call-up in 2012.
Lawrie, who lost in the first round of the WGC Accenture Matchplay and then finished among the tailenders at the WGC Cadillac Championship, will return to action at next month's Masters at Augusta.
With the first Major of the season looming, the Aberdonian knows he needs to find his form with the putter if he is to get back among the frontrunners, but the world No.38 is not reaching for the panic button just yet.
Lawrie, who will be at the Glasgow Hilton tomorrow night for the Prince & Princess of Wales Hospice's dinner, said: "It's been a poor start and the results have not been what I expected. The putting has been absolutely horrendous.
"My next event is the Masters and I need this time to spend hours, everyday, knocking in six to eight-footers to get some confidence up.
"Confidence is the biggest thing I'm struggling with. When you keep seeing the ball missing the hole it's no good for your mind.
"But there's no panic. I'm not thinking, 'this is going to be a disaster'."
He may not have hit the ground running in 2013 but, with his 27th year as a professional well underway, Lawrie continues to relish his new lease of life.
He added: "Now I feel great again. When you have a run of success, it can be tough to live up to it. It's been a little tougher for me this season because of what I achieved last year and that's the challenge I face now."
