Richie Ramsay on a Swiss Alps roll at the Omega European Masters
Monday 03 September 2012
Richie Ramsay won his second European Tour title yesterday at the Omega European Masters title at Crans-sur-Sierre in the Swiss Alps. The 29-year-old Scot followed up a bogey-free 64 on Saturday with a closing five-under-par 66 to win by four strokes and move up to €763,254 (£605,000) in the Race to Dubai standings.
Five birdies on the outward nine holes set up the win, his first since the 2009 South African Open, and although Ramsay bogeyed the 13th and 17th, an eagle on the par-five 14th gave him a cushion.
Ryder Cup player Paul Lawrie started the day in joint second but shot 70 to finish tied for sixth.
Diving in at the deep end is no excuse for shirking the style stakes
