Aberdeen’s Richie Ramsay has set his sights on a place in the European Tour’s lucrative end of season showdown in Dubai.
The 36-year-old finished top Scot at the Dunhill Links with a final round of 68 to place tied 10th on 18-under.
Ramsay was the last man in the field for the previous week’s BMW PGA Championship and went on to finish sixth to catapult up the rankings to 60th in the order of merit.
His top-10 finish at Wentworth also earned him a starting berth at the Dunhill Links and he was pleased to make the most of the opportunity.
The top 50 in the rankings will tee up in the £6.5million DP World Tour Championship in Dubai in November.
Ramsay, now 55th in the Race to Dubai, said: “If it was like that all the time, life would be brilliant.
“I thought I had holed my approach on the last. It was a cool way to finish.
“It sets up the year very well and I just have to really chase that Race to Dubai.
“That’s the goal, but it’s one step at a time.
“I sort of sealed my spot in Turkey last week and the goal was to play well this week to get into Nedbank.
“The goal after Madrid will be to play the last three and get into Dubai and give my daughter Olivia and the family a holiday in Dubai.”
Inverness golfer Russell Knox finished one behind Ramsay on 17-under after a closing 69 on his Dunhill Links debut.
He said: “It was amazing to play this tournament.
“I have no idea why I’ve never played it in the past. It was phenomenal and I enjoyed being back in Scotland. It was cold and true Scottish weather but I’ll definitely be back.”
Oban’s Robert MacIntyre and Kinross’ Calum Hill finished tied 26th on 15-under.
