Richie Ramsay is one of the golfers in this week's Nordea Masters field with experience of playing at Barseback Golf & Country Club, a course being used on the European Tour for the first time since 2009.
Ramsay posted T24 there eight years ago and it promised to be much better than that after he opened with a pair of 70s to sit tied third after 36 holes. This is his first return to Sweden since T53 in the 2014 edition at PGA Sweden National. The Scot is coming in off T30 in the BMW PGA Championship at Wentworth where he topped the Driving Accuracy stats but was only T50 for Greens In Regulation. He's had a quiet season so far, with T12 at the Tshwane Open his best result in 10 starts. May 31 - 7:17 AM

The Scottish duo of Richie Ramsay and Marc Warren eagled the closing hole to become the first team to secure a victory at the European Tour's new GolfSixes event at Centurion Club in England.

Amidst much fanfare, the tournament had opened with three straight draws as teams struggled to separate themselves in the six-hole Greensomes format. It looked all set for another as Scotland and Belgium (Nicolas Colsaerts and Thomas Detry) arrived at the last in a 2-2 tie but Ramsay and Warren produced a winning eagle to bank the three points on offer for a win and put themselves top of Group B after Thailand and Spain had drawn 1-1 shortly before. The Scots had twice taken the lead after winning the 1st with par and the third with birdie but Belgian levelled with decisive birdies at 2 and 4. The par-3 5th was halved before Scotland trumped Belgium's birdie at 6 with eagle-3. The top two teams from the four four-team groups qualify for Sunday's knockout phase and Ramsay and Warren can secure their spot with victory over Spain in Match 2 later this afternoon.

Richie Ramsay is looking for a third consecutive top ten finish in the Volvo China Open when he plays at Topwin Golf & CC in Beijing this week.

If consistency in China is what a gamer is seeking this week, Ramsay might be the man. In a field full of players whose good record there is well-known, the Scotsman’s is one that has slipped under the radar. He’s 16-for-17 in the country with a T2 on the Challenge Tour plus a more impressive T3 in the 2010 HSBC Champions, T4 in the 2011 Hong Kong Open, then T7 and T6 in the last two renewals of this event. Obviously the latter of those returns holds relevant weight this week, since his position was clinched with a smart 66 round the course he’ll tackle again from Thursday. He was also quietly impressive last week, posting T21. His best this season was T12 in the Tshwane Open so he’ll be keen to get another good result under his belt.

Richie Ramsay had an early alarm call Friday but looked wide awake in a 4-under-par 33-35=68 in round two of the Shenzhen International, nudging seven spots up the live leaderboard to T4 on 7-under 137.

Ramsay only managed 15 holes of his opener at Genzon GC yesterday due to a near two-hour delay for bad weather and resumed at 06:30 today. He signed for three straight pars to complete a 69, three back from R1 leader Bubba Watson. The Scot bogeyed the first hole of his second lap, the par-4 10th hole, but responded in style with red numbers at 11, 12 and 13. He made another gain at 17 before a lull in his round which featured five pars and a bogey at 5. However, Ramsay got his second wind and ticked 7 and 8 to finish round two placed in a tie for fourth and five behind pacesetter Bernd Wiesberger. He'd arrived in China on the back of three missed cuts in four starts but Genzon has been good to him (24-11-32 in his trio of starts there) so his bold showing so far is no real surprise.

Richie Ramsay returns from a two-week break to contest the European Tour's Tshwane Open at Pretoria CC in South Africa.

It's his second appearance in the event, his first resulting in a missed cut after a pair of 72s in 2015. The Scot has a soft spot for South Africa as he won the SA Open at Pearl Valley in 2009 after a final-round 65. That was his first European Tour win and he's since added victories in the 2012 Omega European Masters and 2015 Trophee Hassan II in Morocco (northern Africa). Ramsay cashed in all three Desert Swing events but T57 in Abu Dhabi, T37 in Qatar and T60 in Dubai didn't give too much reward for gamers. He's since missed the cut in the Maybank Championship so will hope skipping the last two events has freshened him up after four straight weeks of action.

Richie Ramsay boosted his chances of reaching next week's DP World Tour Championship in Dubai by shooting a 3-under-par 35-34=69 in his opener at the Nedbank Golf Challenge in South Africa.

The Scot is 69th on the Race to Dubai so needs to jump nine spots this week to have a crack at the season-ending jackpot. He had to wait until the fifth hole for his first par today after squeezing two birdies between bogeys at 1 and 4 before he made a move with back-to-back birdie-4s at 9 and 10. Ramsay dropped a shot at 11 but completed his clean sweep of birdies on the par 5s with another at 14. A final circle at 15 and three closing pars saw him match the early clubhouse lead of Victor Dubuisson. Ramsay has slid down the rankings after failing to post a top 30 in his last nine starts so he'll hope that drinking in the last-chance saloon will fuel him to a big finish.

Richie Ramsay torched Victoria Clube de Golfe for a 10-under-par 29-32=61 in his second round at the Portugal Masters, a leap of 73 spots on the live leaderboard to T10.

After four bogeys in a frustrating 71 on Thursday, the Scot got going in the right direction today with four birdies in his first six holes after beginning at 10. A dropped shot at 16 was negated by another circle at 17 before he connected five straight from Nos. 2-6. Three more birdies would have given Ramsay the European Tour's first official 59 but he could only add one further gain at 8. Still, today's low one puts him right back in the tournament at 10-under 132. That's four behind fellow Scot Marc Warren and England's Andy Sullivan, who also fired a 61. To give today's round context, his previous best in 12 previous laps of the course was a 68. The 61 also beats Ramsay's best round of the season by five shots.

Local man Richie Ramsay finished runner-up on his last start at the Alfred Dunhill Links Championship and will try to go one better this year.

That T2 in 2014 at the event played over the links courses at St. Andrews, Carnoustie and Kingsbarns helped the Scot bank his place in the season-ending DP World Tour Championship in Dubai and another good week will punch his ticket again. He's currently 58th on the Race to Dubai and needs to remain in the top 60. Ramsay certainly enjoys playing on home soil. As well as his near miss in 2014 he was fourth on debut in this event in 2009 while he's cracked the top 10 in his native Scotland twice this year with T6 in the Scottish Open and T9 in the Paul Lawrie Match Play. His very latest form isn't great with a couple of midfield finishes and a missed cut in the KLM Open but if he's going to bounce back this is as likely a spot as any.

Richie Ramsay sprinkled seven birdies on his first-round scorecard but had to settle for an opening 4-under-par 34-33=67 at the Made in Denmark.

That's three swings behind leaders Thomas Pieters, Joakim Lagergren and Tom Lewis and T10 on the leaderboard. And yet the Scot will feel he should be nearer the top after making a mess on two of the easiest holes on the course at Himmerland Golf & Spa Resort. At the par-4 5th hole, where eagles were common and Scott Jamieson even recorded an albatross, Ramsay racked up a bogey-6 and that came after he'd scribbled in a double-bogey 7 at 11, his second hole of the day. There was plenty of good stuff in there too and he splashed red at 15, 16, 17, 2, 5, 6 and 9. Ramsay, who has two top 10s in his last three European Tour starts, piped 9 (of 14) fairways and hit 15 greens in regulation.

Richie Ramsay won the battle of Robert Karlsson's 2015 victims, when downing David Howell in the first round of the Paul Lawrie Match Play at Archerfield Links Golf Club.

Twelve months ago Howell made the semi- and Ramsay the quarter-finals of this event, both of them defeated by the eventual runner-up Karlsson. They had clearly takne to the cut and thrust of head-to-head golf, and it stayed that way throughout a tightly fought match on the Fidra Links. Early birdies on 2 and 4 gave Ramsay the advantage, but Howell responded with one of his own at 5 only for Ramsay to post another winning pair of red numbers at 6 and 7. Ramsay's 3 hole lead was maintain right up until the 14th when Howell made back-to-back winning red numbers, but he could do no more and a pair of birdie-4s (Ramsay's from 20'0") on the last gave the Scot passage through to the next round where he will play Gregory Havret or Roope Kakko.

Richie Ramsay caught a birdie-train that reaped him a T6 finish in the Aberdeen Asset Management Scottish Open and a coveted place in next week's Open Championship.

The Scot's final round 5-under-par 33-34=67 for 11-under 277 grabbed the last of the 4 Open spots on offer and the key was a swath of red plasters across the middle of his front nine. He reeled off 4 birdies in 4 holes from the 3rd and although he added a bogey-5 at No. 7, the back nine made up for it. Birdies at 10 and 16 lifted him level with Jorge Campillo in the race for Troon and the Spaniard handed it to Ramsay with bogey at the last.

Local man Richie Ramsay has extra incentive as he prepares to tee it up in this week's Aberdeen Asset Management Scottish Open at Castle Stuart Golf Links in Inverness.

Ramsay has yet to secure a place in next week's Open Championship at Royal Troon but knows that the four highest non-exempt players can qualify via the Scottish Open as long as they finish in the top 12. That's something the man from Aberdeen has managed just once in 11 starts this season so he'll have to step up. In this event, Ramsay's record is surprisingly poor. He's missed six of eight cuts and never made the top 30. At least his best effort of T31 came at Castle Stuart in 2011 while he's shown he can excel in front of his own fans by finishing runner-up in the 2014 Alfred Dunhill Links Championship.

Richie Ramsay has struggled more than he has thrived when visiting Paris; he'll hope that changes in this week's 100th Open de France.

The Scot's course form is a real oddity: in 6 visits he has finished better than T41 just the once, but when he did he was T5. The question might be: what made the difference that year? The answer would appear to be his long game because no-one hit more greens in regulation than him that week, making up for what have been - year in, year out - some pretty grotty putting stats. He was T6 at the China Open in late April but subsequently things have gone badly: a best of T43 from his last 4 starts.

Richie Ramsay missed the cut on his only previous start at Gut Larchenhof but will return to the German course to contest this week's BMW International Open.

Ramsay could only manage 71-74 when it last staged this event two years ago and is just 1-for-4 in this tournament having also struggled at alternative host venue Golfclub München Eichenried. He does though have a win in Germany having landed the Challenge Tour's Vodafone Challenge in 2008. The Scot is 74th on this year's Race to Dubai and has just two top 20s in his nine starts (T6 in the Volvo China Open his best). He'll want to put right a miserable performance in Austria last time when he signed for a pair of 77s in the Lyoness Open.

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.
