From DP World Tour News:
Richie Ramsay ended his seven-year wait for a fourth DP World Tour title as he nervelessly holed his tricky par putt at the 18th to win the 2022 Cazoo Classic by one shot.
Overnight leader Julien Guerrier had been the man to catch for most of the day at Hillside Golf Club but birdies at the 14th, 15th and 17th saw Ramsay head to the last with a one-shot lead.
The 39-year-old missed the fairway off the 18th tee but managed to give himself an eight-foot par putt, which he duly holed to sign for a closing 69. Read more

The No. 329-ranked Ramsay punched the air and roared with delight after holing a par putt from 10 feet at the last hole at Hillside near Liverpool, northwest England.
He shot 3-under 69 and finished on 14-under 274 overall, earning his first title since the Trophee Hassan II in March 2015.
Englishman Paul Waring, who led after the first two rounds, shot 70 and was alone in second place. Read more
An emotional Richie Ramsay dedicated his Cazoo Classic victory to daughter Olivia after holing an eight-foot putt on Hillside's 18th hole to win his first tournament in six years.
The Scot produced a brilliant finish, with three birdies in the last five holes, but it was a two-putt from the front of the green which secured a round of 69 for a 14-under-par total and a one-shot victory over Paul Waring which started the tears flowing.
Ramsay had promised his daughter he would win a trophy for her as he had not tasted victory since she was born and had collapsed on the final hole in May's British Masters at The Belfry. Read more
