AGADIR, Morocco – Richie Ramsay of Scotland shot a 3-under 69 Sunday to win the Trophee Hassan II by one shot ahead of Frenchman Romain Wattel and claim his third European Tour title.
Ramsay wasted a three-shot lead before recovering with three straight birdies from the 12th hole at the Golf du Palais Royal to finish with a 10-under 278 total.
Wattel birdied the 17th but settled for par on 18 for a 70.
Six players shared third place on 8 under, including South African George Coetzee, who needed to win in order to secure a place at the Masters.
Ramsay said “I stood over the putt at the 12th hole and thought my putter feels great. I thought, `Just go for it, this is your time.'”
