Aberdeen’s Richie Ramsay will be aiming to go one better at the Portugal Masters this week after finishing second at last week’s Alfred Dunhill Links Championship at St Andrews.
The 31-year-old, who has finished in the top 10 in four of his previous five European Tour events, will tee off at 8am this morning alongside Bernd Wiesberger and Ross Fisher at the Oceanico Golf Club in Vilamoura.
Ramsay bogeyed two of the final three holes to finish a shot behind Dunhill Links champion Oliver Wilson but the Aberdonian is feeling positive ahead of the Portugal Masters.
He said: “My consistency has been really good. I think that has been down to my attitude. I am more patient and I am being more positive.
“I could look back on the Alfred Dunhill Links Championship with regret that I did not win it or I can look at it that I managed to shoot five under in my final round in a world class field.
“I was an inch away from getting in a play-off and that is not much at all.
“If I keep doing things right then I will get another chance to win and I will take it.”
Fellow Aberdonian Paul Lawrie tees off at 8.20am alongside Shane Lowry and Pablo Larrazabal, while Peterhead’s Jamie McLeary begins at 1.50pm with Goncalo Pinto and Seve Benson.
