With a 3-under-par 36-33=69 in his final round of the Trophee Hassan II, Richie Ramsay posted 10-under 272 and recorded a one-stroke victory over Romain Wattel.
This was anyone's title for the taking. The Scot was one of three to share the overnight lead, but only to capitalize on his position. He converted on seven birdies, including four in a row going out. His other three were also consecutive but on his inward nine. A bogey-triple bogey stumble at Nos. 7 and 8 kept the field alive, but only Wattel gave it a spirited run. After a ridiculous par at the par-5 15th, where the Frenchman flubbed his first chip-and-run from off the green and then holed his next, he closed par-birdie-par. His attempt to tie was all but lost when he missed the green at the par-4 last. Six others shared third place just two strokes adrift of Ramsay, who missed only 10 (of 52) fairways and 15 greens in regulation all week. It's his third European Tour title and fifth top-17 finish in this tournament. Overall, it's an astounding feat given he failed to cash in his first five starts of 2015. Mar 29 - 1:20 PM

Richie Ramsay carded a 1-under-par 35-36=71 in the third round of the Trophee Hassan II. With one round to play, his 7-under 211 total shares the lead with fellow Scot Andrew McArthur and Frenchman Romain Wattel.

Six-under and in a four-way tie for the lead after 36 holes, the 31-year-old Scot wasted no time in dropping out of the top spot with a bogey on the par-5 first. He steadied with birdies on holes 3, 5 and 6 before dropping a shot on the par-4 ninth, making the turn in 7-under. He sandwiched a bogey on No. 13 with birdies on holes 10 and 14 but missed a short birdie putt on the par-5 15th and settled for par. After pars on holes 16 and 17, he came to the final hole holding a one-shot lead but trouble off the tee led to bogey, costing him a place in the final two-ball on Sunday.

Richie Ramsay arrived at the break of the Trophee Hassan II in 6-under-par 72-66=138 and shares the lead entering the weekend.

Course history buffs are getting their latest example of why success at a venue has so much value to them. Today's loop of Golf du Palais Royal in Agadir, Morocco, was indicative of how comfortable Ramsay is on the track where he's finished inside the top 17 in all four trips. He hit 16 greens in regulation and connected for six birdies, five of which on his opening nine. The Scot is 0-for-5 this season with four missed cuts and a withdrawal. It's a rapid departure from the form that yielded a successful 2014 during which he finished 43rd in the Race to Dubai.

Richie Ramsay makes his fifth visit to Doha Golf Club to challenge for this week's Commercial Bank Qatar Masters.

Despite a second-round 69, the Scot missed the cut in last week's Abu Dhabi HSBC Golf Championship so will be hoping to kick-start his 2015 campaign here. The 2006 U.S. Amateur winner is 2-for-3 in Qatar, registering his best finish of T32 on debut in 2010. He was T45 in 2011 but didn't make the weekend on his last appearance in 2012. The 31-year-old was 43rd on the Race To Dubai in 2014.

Richie Ramsay makes his first appearance in the World Golf Championships-Bridgestone Invitational.

Ramsay qualified for the tournament by virtue of his win at the 2012 Omega European Masters. The 2013 campaign, largely on the European Tour, has seen him score top 10s at the BMW PGA Championship and the Volvo Golf Championships. Given the strength of the field this week, coupled with his lack of experience at Firestone and his modest form, expectations should not be set all that high.

Richie Ramsay has drawn the straw of facing Louis Oosthuizen in his first crack at the World Golf Championships-Accenture Match Play Championship.

The 2006 U.S. Amateur winner will play out of the Hogan Bracket. The bulk of his world ranking points came in his victory at the Omega European Masters late in 2012. He missed the cut in his last start.

Richie Ramsay closed out a four-stroke victory at the Omega European Masters with a 5-under-par 31-35=66 at Crans-sur-Sierre Golf Club in Switzerland.

The 29-year-old Scot slept on a one-shot margin over fellow countryman, Paul Lawrie, who was gunning for a second title in as many weeks. It was an advantage that ballooned to five at the turn today. (Lawrie would eventually settle for a share of sixth place at 11-under 272. The par-4 sixth hole played as a par 3 for the third round due to unplayable turf following considerable rain, thus dropping the aggregate par to 283.) After starting bogey-free 5-under through 12 today, Ramsay sandwiched an eagle hole-out at the par-5 14th hole with bogeys at 13 and 17. He'd par the last to post 16-under 268. Danny Willett, Fredrik Andersson-Hed, Marcus Fraser and Romain Wattel split runner-up honors. This is Ramsay's second career European Tour victory (2010 South African Open Championship).

Scotland's Richie Ramsay defeated India's Shiv Kapur in a playoff to win the South African Open.

In the playoff, Kapur found trouble with his tee ball and couldn't recover on the par-5 18th hole while Ramsay two-putted from 12 feet for birdie and the title. It's the first European Tour victory for the 2006 U.S. Amateur champion. The Sunshine Tour's money leader, Anders Hansen, was already eligible for the British Open, so there were no additions to the 2010 major qualifiers today. The top-50 on next week's world golf ranking (December 28) will earn tee times at the Masters.
