Richie Ramsay has struggled on the West Course at Wentworth, but he's in decent nick as he heads to the BMW PGA Championship.
The Scotsman's season was disrupted by an eye injury which prompted a two month break after he left the Dubai Desert Classic and it’s been a solid return: T29 at the Open de Espana, T24 at the Shenzhen International, T6 at the China Open and then what on first glance seemed a step backwards with a T54 last week in Ireland. But he was T8 at halfway at The K Club so the form has not totally escaped him and there seems to be a good week on the horizon. His course form suggests this week won’t, however, be it. He did finish T9 in 2013, but that’s his only top 25 finish and he had four missed cuts in seven starts. May 25 - 4:29 AM

Richie Ramsay was T10 in the 2015 Dubai Duty Free Irish Open and heads to the K Club to contest this year's event.

The Scot's top 10 at Royal County Down 12 months ago promised to be so much better after he held the halfway lead and was fourth going into the final 18 holes but he stumbled on Sunday with a closing 77. Ramsay also posted T9 in the 2010 edition at Killarney and was T16 at Royal Portrush in 2012 so it's been a good event for him. He's pegged it up just six times in 2016 but has cashed in five of those and peaked with a T6 in the Volvo China Open on his last start after shooting 67-66 on the weekend. He sits 65th on the Race to Dubai.

Richie Ramsay eased his way round Genzon GC early Saturday morning to complete a superb 6-under-par 33-33=66 which vaulted him into solo third at the halfway stage of the Shenzhen International.

The Scot is on 9-under 135 after 36 holes and his second round was a display of measured excellence. He missed just 1 of 14 fairways and hit every green in regulation, which helped him slot 3 birdies on either nine: at 1, 2 and 7 on the front, and at 10, 13 and 17 on the back. He is 4 back of leader Soomin Lee and 1 back of second placed Joost Luiten.

Richie Ramsay painted a 3-under-par 34-35=69 in his opening round at the Shenzhen International in China and is just three shots off the early lead.

Ramsay finished T11 in this event last year and appeared to be heading to the top of the leaderboard after firing five birdies and eight pars over his first 13 holes at Genzon GC on Thursday. Those gains came at 1, 4, 10, 11 and 13. However, his smooth progress was interrupted by a bogey at 14 and he followed it with further dropped shots at 15 and 16. Ramsay responded with a birdie at 17 and a par at the last to slot in three behind pacesetter Alexander Levy. The Scot piped 11 (of 14) fairways, hit 13 greens in regulation but only got up and down once in five attempts.

Richie Ramsay made another good start on his return to Valderrama and is T4 on the live leaderboard after a first-round 2-under-par 34-35=69 at the Open de Espana.

The Scot had a piece of the lead on day one the last time it staged a European Tour event in 2011 and again broke 70 today despite swallowing a double bogey-6 at 8. That wiped out birdies at 1 and 4 but he responded in style with par breakers at 9, 10 and 12. Ramsey gave one back with a bogey at 13 but reeled off five closing pars to land just three behind clubhouse leader Alexander Levy. His straight hitting is a good fit for Valderrama and today he piped 10 (of 14) fairways. The 32-year-old hit 13 greens in regulation and was 3-for-5 in scrambling.
Apr 14 - 9:23 AM

Richie Ramsay made a swift start on his previous visit to Valderrama and he’s eyeing more success in this week’s Open de Espana.

It was the Scotsman’s only previous experience of Valderrama and it was a good one: in 2011 he shot a sparkling round one 65 to lead the field and a round two 72 helped him maintain top spot. 73 and 70 on the weekend may have seen him slip back to T3, but he’ll be keen to head back to the venerable course. An eye injury has kept him off tour since the Desert Swing, but he spent last week practising in southern Spain as he prepared to resume the season rust-free. Prior to that disruption, his seasonal best performance was T16 in Abu Dhabi when he needed fewer putts than anyone in the field. He was winner this time last year, when collecting the Hassan II Trophy in Morocco.

Richie Ramsay is just 2-for-6 in the Abu Dhabi HSBC Golf Championship but will have another crack this week.

The Scot missed his first three cuts at Abu Dhabi Golf Club and also failed to cash last year. But there is a glimmer of hope in his form; in 2013 he was tied fifth going into the final day before after middle rounds of 68-67 before he slipped away to T23 after a closing 75. This is the Scot's first start on the 2016 Race to Dubai. Last year he posted a win at the Trophée Hassan II and four other top 10s to finish 54th on Europe's money list.

Richie Ramsay broke 70 in his opening round for the first time this season after carding a 4-under-par 34-34=68 on day one of the BMW Masters in China.

Yes, you did hear that right. Even when he won the Trophee Hassan II in Morocco back in March, the Scot could only manage a 72 on day one and lacklustre Thursdays have clearly held him back this season. Even today, he broke par on just three holes although keeping a bogey off his card with 5-for-5 scrambling meant he finally shot in the 60s. After six opening pars, Ramsay made his move with an eagle-3 at the par-5 7th hole before adding birdies at 10 and 14 to finish the day in T9. That's four behind leader Sergio Garcia. He split 9 (of 14) fairways in round.

Richie Ramsay will hope to take some inspiration from Russell Knox's WGC-HSBC Champions win when he contests this week's BMW Masters.

A Scot won in Shanghai last week so can Ramsay make it a repeat at Lake Malaren? The 32-year-old, who tweeted his support for Knox during the final round at Sheshan on Sunday, is making his third start at the BMW Masters. He was T63 on debut in 2012 but improved to T21 last year after two 68s in his middle rounds. Ramsay has been quiet since a top 10 at the European Masters in Switzerland but, despite only posting T56, he signed off at the Turkish Airlines Open with a 68 two weeks ago. He also played well in this part of the world earlier in the season when T11 in the Shenzhen International and seventh at the Volvo China Open.

Richie Ramsay will return to Scotland this week to contest the Alfred Dunhill Links Championship.

The tournament takes place over three different links venues -- St. Andrews, Kingsbarns and Carnoustie -- and the Scot knows all of them well. He's challenged seriously for the trophy twice and finished runner-up in 2014 and fourth on debut in 2009. Ramsay is 42nd on the Race To Dubai this season and took victory at March's Trophee Hassan II in Morocco but he's just hit a sticky patch of late with missed cuts in his last three starts. Gamers wanting to get him on board should be encouraged by his round scores in those events though as his last five laps read 67-70-68-74-67 so there isn't too much wrong.

Richie Ramsay produced a superb fightback to beat India's Shiv Kapur by 1 hole in the opening round of the inaugural Saltire Energy Paul Lawrie Matchplay.

Despite holding the course record at Murcar Links GC and growing up near the Aberdeen venue, Ramsay found himself three down to Kapur after losing the 4th, 5th and 7th. But the Scot clawed his way back into the match with winning birdies at the 8th and 11th before making it all square with a par at the 14th. After trading pars at the 15th and 16th, Ramsay edged in front for the first time with a birdie at the 17th and closed out victory with a 20-footer for another at the par-4 18th after Kapur had fired his approach to eight feet. The Aberdeen native, who will take on Italy's Edoardo Molinari (a 5&4 winner over Magnus A Carlsson) in the last 32, said, "The most pleasing thing is playing well under pressure. There is no better feeling."

Richie Ramsay will have local knowledge on his side when he contests the inaugural Saltire Energy Paul Lawrie Match Play at Mucar Links GC.

Not only does the tournament takes place in Ramsay's home town of Aberdeen, he also holds the course record, a 9-under-par 62. He shot that when Murcar Links held a Challenge Tour event in 2006, Ramsay eventually finishing in fourth. He gave this insight to europeantour.com, "The course really suits me because you’ve got to be straight off the tee, which is one of my main strengths. I played it about a month ago and the rough is really up so if you hit any wayward shots, you’re really going to be struggling to make par out there. There’s a lot of strategy involved in playing well there, and knowing the wind direction hopefully gives me a bit of an advantage." Ramsay heads to Aberdeen on the back of a T10 in last week's Omega European Masters.

Richie Ramsay has been added to the field of 156 at this week's Open Championship.

The Scot was the first alternate when Tim Clark withdrew today. Ramsay will be making his fifth appearance. His only payday occurred in his last at Muirfield in 2013 when he placed T58. While he missed the cut at the Scottish Open, the 32-year-old won earlier this year in Morocco. It sparked a run of six top 15s in his last nine starts. Shawn Stefani is now first alternate.

Richie Ramsay has a home game this week as he contests the Aberdeen Asset Management Scottish Open at Gullane GC.

Ramsay suffered real disappointment 12 months ago when missing the cut at Royal Aberdeen, his local course growing up, and he also crashed out at halfway at Castle Stuart in the previous two editions. In fact, he's just 2-for-7 in his home Open so is due. Recent form suggests he'll turn the corner this week as the Scot has a win and five other top 15s from his last eight starts. Another plus is that Ramsay finished runner-up in the Alfred Dunhill Links Championship in Scotland last October so gamers have some reassurance that he can thrive in front of his own supporters.

Richie Ramsay is 34th in the Race To Dubai heading into this week's Alstom Open de France at Le Golf National.

Since winning the Trophee Hassan II in late March, the Scot has finished outside the top 15 just once in six starts so is in the middle of his most consistent run of form since turning pro. Ramsay still has a way to go before being considered a future Ryder Cup contender but a win this week at the course which will host the 2018 event would thrust him into the picture. His form at Le Golf National is mixed but a top five in 2011 suggests he could feature prominently on Sunday.
