Richie Ramsay’s Timely Win

Richie Ramsay’s Timely Win

Winning the European Masters was such a timely advancement for the 29-year-old Scottish golfer Richie Ramsay. The victory came in just few weeks prior to his wedding ceremony and a week after fellow Scottish golfer Paul Lawrie bagged the Johnnie Walker Championship tour.

“It’s been an unbelievable last few weeks. As well as myself and Paul winning, a lot of guys have been playing well. I’ve only got three weeks to go to my wedding, so it’s nice to get that win under my belt.” said Ramsay during an interview with BBC Scotland. This is Ramsay’s second title under the European Tour and first winning tour for the past three years.

Ramsay was elated knowing that the victory will lead him to bigger tournament invitations and will open opportunities to raise his world ranking. His win also brought added optimism to the Scottish golf which has been looking forward for new champion golfers after Colin Montgomerie fell in the rankings.

“There are other guys who are chipping away there. I had a chat with Paul on the way round and you can see from the way he’s playing, he’s full of confidence for the Ryder Cup. If we can get another few guys up there winning titles then we can show how strong Scottish golf is,” Ramsay said.

When asked if there will be an upgrade for his fiancée’s wedding ring due to heightened prize money, he shared, “As far as I know, it’s still the same one I gave her. I think she is more than happy with the one she’s got, so I don’t think there will be an upgrade. She might get a few other presents if she’s lucky.”
