With a 3-under-par 36-33=69 in his final round of the Trophee Hassan II, Richie Ramsay posted 10-under 272 and recorded a one-stroke victory over Romain Wattel.
This was anyone's title for the taking. The Scot was one of three to share the overnight lead, but only to capitalize on his position. He converted on seven birdies, including four in a row going out. His other three were also consecutive but on his inward nine. A bogey-triple bogey stumble at Nos. 7 and 8 kept the field alive, but only Wattel gave it a spirited run. After a ridiculous par at the par-5 15th, where the Frenchman flubbed his first chip-and-run from off the green and then holed his next, he closed par-birdie-par. His attempt to tie was all but lost when he missed the green at the par-4 last. Six others shared third place just two strokes adrift of Ramsay, who missed only 10 (of 52) fairways and 15 greens in regulation all week. It's his third European Tour title and fifth top-17 finish in this tournament. Overall, it's an astounding feat given he failed to cash in his first five starts of 2015.
