Richie Ramsay won the prestigious 2006 American entertainment title before becoming the Finnish Masters final leaderboard, Southport-16 M Kinhult (Swe); -15 M Wallace (Eng), E Pepperell (Eng), R MacIntyre (Sco); -12 R Ramsay (Sco); -11 P Waring (Eng), J Smith (Eng) Other selected: -10 T Fleetwood (Eng), M Kaymer (Ger), O Wilson (Eng); -9 R Fisher (Eng) Leaderboard

The triple winner of the European Tour, Richie Ramsay, has repeated that he will consider stopping even though he has achieved fifth place in the British Masters – only four strokes behind champion Marcus Kinhult.

The Aberdonian had hinted this week that he stops playing when he reaches 40.

The former Walker Cup player, 35, says spending time with his daughter Olivia is more important than golf.

"It is a difficult decision to make, but I would make it. She is number one in my life," Ramsay told BBC Scotland.

Ramsay & # 39; s last round of 72 left him on par, with colleague Scot Robert MacIntyre equal for second place on 15 under.

"If I retire tomorrow, it's the game I'm going to miss," he said. "Going from toe to toe with boys, needing a little bird.

" I fought against being so far away from Olivia. I have made a plan that if my motivation is not there and I do not feel that I am spending enough time with my daughter, then I can retire on my retirement and be in order.

"I have put a lot into this game and 99% is not good enough for me, it must be 100%." ​​
