Ramsay gets new two-year sponsorship deal from

Craig Group and a cash bonus for S Africa win

New South African Open champion Richie Ramsay has been given a new two-year sponsorship deal by Aberdeen based global shipping and energy services company, The Craig Group.
This partnership follows on from The Craig Group’s original two-year commitment where they became one of Ramsay’s main sponsors in 2007 when he turned professional.
Richie, back in Aberdeen this week, said:
“I was totally focused and determined to win out in South Africa and so I am delighted to have secured my first European Tour title. I have been working really hard over the last few months so it is great that it has paid off.
"The sponsorship from the Craig Group has been very important to me and I really appreciate their support though the early stages of my professional career. With their help I was able to concentrate on my golf and so I am delighted to have rewarded their faith in me by winning this past weekend.
"I am very appreciative of their continued commitment and hope that I am able to build on this win in the future.”
At present Ramsay practices at the Golf Club of Georgia and lives in Edinburgh when not travelling for tournaments. His coaching team consists of Ian Rae with mental coaching from Bob Rotella.
Talking about the commitment the Craig Group has made to Ramsay, Douglas Craig, MD of the Craig Group said:
“We see Richie as one of Europe’s brightest golfing talents and we are delighted to be able to continue to support him into the next phase of his career. His ongoing commitment to a tough training schedule as well as his dedication to the sport means that the partnership between Craig Group and Richie has succeeded our expectations and has rewarded our investment in him.
“Richie is a tremendous role model for all young athletes in the North-east and we consider our sponsorship an investment in the future, not only of Richie and his talents, but also of future generations of golfing talent in Scotland.”
As part of his sponsorship deal Richie will be awarded with a cheque from the Craig group as part of a bonus incentive scheme.
Richie’s next step is to take part in the Abu Dhabi Golf Championship in mid January.
