Third title for Scot Ramsay

Scotland's Richie Ramsay claimed his third European Tour title and survived Romain Wattel's late surge to win the Trophee Hassan II in Morocco yesterday.

Ramsay, joint overnight leader on seven-under with Wattel and Scotland's Andrew McArthur, carded a three under-par final round at the course in Agadir to finish on a total of 278.

France's Wattel, chasing a first European Tour title and needing a birdie on the 18th to force a playoff, finished a shot behind after shooting a final round of 70.

South African George Coetzee, who needed to win to qualify for the Masters, finished tied third on eight under alongside six other players, including England's Chris Wood, Sweden's Mikael Lundberg and Spain's Pablo Larrazabal.
