European Tour Profile - Richie Ramsay


In 2006, Ramsay became the first British golfer in almost a century to win

 the United States Amateur Championship. He also won several other

 amateur titles and played in the 2005 Walker Cup.

Ramsay turned professional in 2007, and played two seasons on the

second tier Challenge Tour, winning twice in 2008. He finished 8th on the

 end of season rankings that year to graduate to the elite European Tour

 for 2009.

Ramsay was born in Aberdeen. He is an honorary member of Royal

 Aberdeen Golf Club and was a student at the Stirling University in

Scotland, where he graduated in 2007.

Ramsay won the Scottish Amateur Open Stroke Play Championship in

 2004, and the Irish Amateur Open Stroke Play Championship in 2005. He

 went on to represent Great Britain & Ireland in the Walker Cup later that

year.

In 2006, Ramsay won the U.S. Amateur Championship, defeating

 American John Kelly 4 & 2 in the 36-hole final. He was the first British

 player to win the championship since 1911, and the first Scot since 1898.

 He topped the first edition of the World Amateur Golf Ranking, which was

 issued by the R&A on 23 January 2007.

After playing in the 2007 Masters, U.S. Open and Open Championship, for

 which he had qualified through his U.S. Amateur victory, Ramsay turned

 professional. The move meant that he would not be eligible to play in a

 second Walker Cup later that year.

Ramsay made his professional début in August 2007 at the European

 Tour's Russian Open. He finished that event in a tie for 53rd place, and

completed the remainder of the season playing tournaments on the

 second tier Challenge Tour. Having failed to come through final

 qualifying school at the end of the season, he again played on the

Challenge Tour in 2008. He won his first professional tournaments during

 the 2008 season, the Vodafone Challenge in Germany and the AGF

-Allianz Golf Open Grand Toulouse. He ended the year in 8th place on

 the Challenge Tour Rankings to graduate directly to the European Tour

 for 2009.

In 2009 Ramsay finished the season inside the top 100 of the Race to

 Dubai and secured his tour card for 2010. At the second event of the

 2010 season, held at the end of 2009, he won his first title on the

 European Tour by defeating Shiv Kapur in a playoff for the South African

 Open.
