Richie Ramsay says golf is facing an uncertain time amid the pandemic

Three-time European Tour winner Richie Ramsay believes it will be a challenge to find the right place in the calendar to move the Scottish Open.

It was to be held in North Berwick from July 9-12, but has become the last European Tour event postponed in the context of the Covid-19 pandemic.

The Open Championship at Royal St George & # 39; s had already been canceled.

"The postponement of the Scottish Open came as no real surprise," Ramsay, 36, told BBC Radio Scotland.

"But at the same time I think everyone would agree that it was the right decision. It is a very difficult situation, but safety is paramount.

" It is good that it has been delayed and not canceled, but many of these things are currently out of our control.

& # 39; The reality is that no one knows as much when you write down dates.

& # 39; It's difficult because it's a problem again. We have a shorter season because we are so far north, and then there is currently a battle for data, everyone is trying to enter data and see if it fits.

"I understand the PGA Tour looking at June for a restart and I think that's very ambitious. But we have a different set of conditions in Europe with degrees of regulation in countries."

Now based in Edinburgh, Aberdonian Ramsay calls The Renaissance club his home job, but has not played European Tour golf since the Qatar Masters in early March.

And he's tried to remain productive while there are restrictions.

"I'm getting more opportunity to spend with my daughter and at home," he said.

& # 39; I get to do things that golfers don't always do, like sit and have a nice breakfast with your family in the morning and then go in for sports, play games in the yard and pick up on top of a little work outside.

"I make sure my body is good so that when I come back I'm ready to go."
