Home country hope Richie Ramsay says his closing round was a complete waste of time.

Ramsay hasn’t long finished his Open campaign for another year but says that, unless his game improves, there will be little point in him competing for some time.

After closing his four days on 72, 71, 70 and 74, the Scotsman claims he’s some way off challenging at the top of any leaderboard until he sorts his play out.

“All I care about doing is putting a score together and I failed to do that every day this week,” he said.

“It’s the same old one under and one over.

“The short game and the putting is just rubbish at the moment.

“Next up I’m going to Omega but I can’t even think about that at the moment.

“If I’m going to putt and chip like that there’s no point in going.

“I can’t describe my round because I would be swearing.

“Just straight out, it was a waste of time.”
