Richie Ramsay fulfills promise to daughter with emotional Cazoo Classic win

Emotional Richie Ramsay dedicated her Cazoo Classic win to daughter Olivia after hitting an eight-foot ball into Hillside’s 18th hole to win her first league title in six years.

The Scot pulled off a stellar finish, with three birdies on the last five holes, but it was a two-ball from the front of the green, securing a round of 69 for a total of 14 points below par and win in one hit. Paul Waring began to shed tears.

Ramsay promised his daughter he would win a trophy for her because he hasn’t tasted victory since she was born and fell on the final hole of the British Masters at The Belfry in May, when he took a one-shot lead only to “lose” his second shot into the water from the middle of the 18th fairway and finished with a six-bogey double.

“Maybe I haven’t been in a good place over the last few years, but the most important thing is that I made a promise to my daughter and I didn’t break it,” he told Sky Sports.

“I said I would get her a trophy. I haven’t won since my daughter was born and that’s six years. That’s for Olivia. Hopefully she’s watching.

“It feels unbelievable, it’s a relief. I continue to believe, I know my game is good.

“I know about what happened at The Belfry, but it’s link golf and I feel like I’ve always had the edge when it comes to link golf and there’s nothing better than hanging a putt under the gun while the tournament is on. take place.

“The way I did it, was to break that putt in the last hours of practice and only have one shot left.

“Whatever happens now, I will remember it for the rest of my life.”

Ramsay, and to a lesser extent Waring, took advantage of more sloppy golfing from overnight leader Julien Guerrier in Southport.

The Frenchman, who got past the last hole of the third round, extended his advantage to two to take a three-turn lead but then had three bogeys in his last six holes to eliminate his chance. me.

Waring, with three birdies in his last eight holes, established a clubhouse lead at the bottom 13 after round 70 and, although he was overtaken by Ramsay, Birkenhead golfer Wirral, 30 miles, rose 88 places to a spot outside the top 60 in the DP World Tour rankings.
