Gregory Bourdy made a fast finish as he started the Volvo China Open with a round one 6-under-par 35-31=66.
The Frenchman got off to the perfect start on the 10th, making birdie on the 453-yard par-four, but he completed his back nine with 8 straight pars. Upon passing the clubhouse he hit the accelerator, making birdies at 1, 2, 4 and 6, before a bogey on 7 applied the brakes. No matter, he pressed onwards, adding a brace of par breakers on 8 and 9. The bogey was caused by a failure to get up and down from 1 of the 2 greens he missed in regulation. T2 in the clubhouse after the morning wave, he was 3 shots off Hennie Otto's early lead.

Gregory Bourdy will be looking to churn out yet another consistent effort as he travels to a favoured location for the Open de Espana at Valderrama.

The Frenchman returns to Europe after a brief sojourn on the PGA Tour at the Puerto Rico Open. His T2 in the Alfred Dunhill Championship and T4 in the Perth International have got his European Tour 2016 season off to a strong start and sees him lie 26th in the Race to Dubai. His record at the course is something of a curio; in 10 rounds he has never shot better than 71 and yet racked up solid enough finishes of T34-T25-MC. His record in Spain is much stronger: he’s made 20 top thirty finishes in 34 starts so he can look to improve on his seasonal ranking this week.

France's Gregory Bourdy fired a 6-under-par 31-35=66 in today's final round of the Puerto Rico Open to wrap his tournament debut on 4-under 284, up 29 spots on the live leaderboard to T36.

This was Bourdy's 12th career PGA TOUR event but first in a non-major, non-WGC, and first since T47 at the 2014 Open Championship. He began promisingly in 69-72 but backed up with 77 in R3 to sit T65 of 69 players after three rounds. The 33-year-old rebounded with a five-birdie one-eagle one-bogey 66 in his final frame, highlighted by the eagle at the par-5 second. This hole has been grand for the Frenchman this week, with a par breaker on each day and a cumulative 7-under on the single hole. He holed-out with a 5-metal for a double eagle in the second round and added birdies in R1 and R3.

Gregory Bourdy will make his tournament debut in the Puerto Rico Open at Coco Beach this week.

Although he has played three American major championships (in 2010-12) this will be the Frenchman’s regular PGA Tour debut as well as first visit to the Coco Beach Golf and Country Club. But it might be a smart place to start for an elegant player who hits a low draw, like fast-running courses and enjoys seaside golf. He cites Muirfield as his favorite course and the facts back up the notion that windy venues with a view of the ocean hold no fear: he has been a winner at Oitavos Dunes in Portugal, Pula in Mallorca and Celtic Manor, and thrived in Madeira, Doha and East London. Not one of Europe’s top ranked players, he is, however, not afraid to contend and the course looks a neat fit.

Grégory Bourdy completed a hot weekend at the ISPS HANDA Perth International in Australia by shooting a bogey-free 6-under-par 32-34=66 to finish in tied fourth.

After racing through the field with a 65 on Saturday, Bourdy went low again at Lake Karrinyup today, rising 11 spots on the leaderboard to secure his second top four finish on this season's Race to Dubai. He arrived at 13-under 275, three behind winner Louis Oosthuizen, after circling birdies at 2, 3, 5 and 6 on the front nine and at 13 and 14 on the back. Over the final 36 holes he piped 23 (of 28) fairways and hit 33 greens in regulation.

Helped by an ace Gregory Bourdy cruised his way to a 4-under-par 34-34=68 at the Commercial Bank Qatar Masters for a 9-under 135 halfway total that left him alone in second early in round two.

The Frenchman aced the 185-yard 8th hole for his fourth career hole-in-one - and the very first on the hole in the tournament's history. It was a startling way to kickstart a round that had begun with seven straight pars and he didn't waste the momentum, adding 3 birdies and 1 bogey. Nor was it just on the 8th that he was arrow-straight: he was 16-for-18 on the greens. His first six visits to Doha GC reaped not one top 30 finish, but last year he finished T5 and is following it up in style. When he finished his round he was two shots shy of leader Paul Lawrie.

Grégory Bourdy closed with a 65 to crack the top five in last year's Commercial Bank Qatar Masters and is back at Doha GC again this week.

The Frenchman makes the hop over from Abu Dhabi where he shot two 71s and a pair of 72s to finish T54. Nothing remarkable about that but it did represent the ninth straight time he's cashed on the European Tour. That run includes a second place at the season-opening Alfred Dunhill Championship in South Africa. Bourdy's top five in Qatar last year rather came out of the blue as, prior to that, he was only 3-for-6 at Doha and hadn't bettered his T33 on debut in 2008.

Grégory Bourdy was T13 in his only start at the BMW Masters in Shanghai and will try his luck there again this year.

That result at Lake Malaren came two years ago and was highlighted by a third-round 67 at the Jack Nicklaus-designed par 72. Bourdy has stuttered in recent months, failing to rack up a top 20 in his last seven starts. As a result, the Frenchman has slipped to 58th on the Race to Dubai and, with only the top 60 heading to next week's DP World Tour Championship, his position is vulnerable. It’s the usual dilemma for gamers of having to weigh up incentive against pressure.

Grégory Bourdy stays on the road for the sixth week running with a start at the Portugal Masters at Oceanico Victoria Golf Course.

Bourdy has clocked up the air miles over the last two months and looks to be slowly playing himself back into form after following missed cuts at the Open d'Italia and Porsche European Open with a T48 at the Alfred Dunhill Links and a T38 in last week's British Masters. In this event, '7' appears to be the magic number. He's played it seven times with best results of T7 in both 2008 and 2014. Bourdy is currently 57th on the Race To Dubai.

Grégory Bourdy is 8-for-9 in the Open d'Italia and heads to Golf Club Milano this week for another crack.

With the course featuring narrow fairways, Bourdy's 18th place in the Driving Accuracy stats should stand him in good stead. He's 50th on the Race To Dubai this season having made 16 cuts out of 21. The most recent of his five top 10s came via a T8 in the D+D REAL Czech Masters last month while he posted four rounds in the 60s to take T23 in the KLM Open on Sunday. The Frenchman's best in this event was a third place at Royal Park in 2012.

Grégory Bourdy has been drawn against Nicolas Colsaerts in the first round of the inaugural Saltire Energy Paul Lawrie Match Play at Murcar Links Golf Club.

With narrow fairways and punishing rough, straight hitting looks an advantage on the short par 71 and that could play into the hands of Bourdy. The Frenchman is 20th in Driving Accuracy this season which is 112 spots above Colsaerts. The Belgian, of course, has played a Ryder Cup in this format but hasn't bettered T62 in his last five strokeplay starts. Bourdy has failed to cash in his last two starts but did shoot a second-round 69 in Switzerland last week. Their match tees off at 13:30 local time on Thursday.

Grégory Bourdy suffered a double bogey-6 at Le Golf National's 18th hole to go from one in front to one behind after the first round of the Open de France.

The Frenchman looked poised to edge in front of clubhouse leaders Bernd Wiesberger, Victor Dubuisson and Jaco Van Zyl but had to settle for a 2-under-par 33-36=69. Afternoon starter Bourdy quickly assumed top spot after four birdies in his first six holes before swallowing a bogey at 9. He returned to the lead after a birdie at 14 but a visit to the water at 18 meant he ended his day on a sour note. The 33-year-old, who led for the first three rounds of the Lyoness Open last month, hit 14 greens in regulation but was only 1-for-4 in scrambling.

Grégory Bourdy remains the man to catch at the Lyoness Open after carding a 3-under-par 69 in Saturday's third round.

It was a solid day's work for the Frenchman but his five-shot lead has been whittled down to two after playing partner Rafa Cabrera-Bello returned a 66. Bourdy climbed to 15-under 201 after a round featuring four birdies and a bogey-6 at the 15th. That dropped shot, just his second of the week, led to a two-stroke swing with Cabrera-Bello making birdie at the same hole and the gap remained at two as both players finished birdie-par-par. Bourdy split just 6 (of 14) fairways at Diamond Country Club in round three but kept his greens in regulation count high by hitting another 15 to make it 47 out of 54 for the week so far. The last time he held a 54-hole lead was at the 2009 Hong Kong Open when he closed with a 67 to win by two from a young man called Rory McIlroy.

First-round pacesetter Grégory Bourdy tacked on a 5-under-par 31-36=67 to his opening 65 to build a big lead after his second round at the Lyoness Open.

At 12-under 132, the Frenchman is currently five shots clear of Spanish duo Rafa Cabrera-Bello and Carlos Pigem although the afternoon wave at sunny Diamond Country Club have only played a handful of holes. Two in front overnight, Bourdy stepped on the gas straight away with birdies at 10 and 12 and created further daylight with a trio of birdies at 16, 17 and 18. He briefly lost momentum with a bogey-6 at the 1st but played the final eight holes in 1-under to consolidate his position at the top of the leaderboard. Today, he split 9 (of 14) fairways and hit 15 greens in regulation (he's missed just four in his opening 36 holes).

Grégory Bourdy lit up Diamond Country Club with a 7-under-par 32-33=65 to take a two-shot lead after round one of the Lyoness Open in Austria.

Bourdy had previously shot seven rounds of 70 or lower in his eight laps of the par 72, finishing T8 last year and T18 in 2013. Today he shaved three shots off his best round with a flawless 65 which featured seven birdies and no bogeys. The Frenchman reeled off four par breakers in his first seven holes and enjoyed another birdie burst with three in four holes at 13, 15 and 16. The latter pair lifted him out of a four-way tie for the lead and put the 33-year-old two clear of Chris Wood, Robert Dinwiddie and Carlos Del Moral, who had all shot their 67s in the morning wave. This is the first time he's held a first-round lead since the 2012 Alfred Dunhill Championship where he would go on to finish third. The four-tome European Tour winner was excellent from tee-to-green today, splitting 12 (of 14) fairways and hite past.ting 17 greens in regulation. He told europeantour.com, "I knew that I could do well at this golf course because I have played very well here in the past."
