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. Jul 28 - 5:11 PM

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).
Jun 12 - 8:30 AM

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."

Grégory Bourdy enters this week's Open de España slotted in at 32nd on the Race to Dubai standings.

As well as offering consistency, the Frenchman will appeal to gamers due to past course form. This week's venue, Real Club de Golf El Prat, is playing host for the first time since 2011 while it also staged a Challenge Tour event in 2006. Bourdy was T7 in the latter and T15 in the former. This will be his 11th appearance in the Open de España, the first 10 yielding three top 10s and a further three top 25s.
May 13 - 7:02 AM

Grégory Bourdy will look to make further progress in the Race to Dubai at this week's Volvo China Open.

A closing 66 which secured a top 15 finish at last week's Shenzhen International lifted the Frenchman to 27th and this is another good chance for him to climb further. He played at this week's course, Tomson Shanghai Pudong GC, for the only time back in 2004 when it staged the 2004 BMW Asian Open and finished T37. A much more rounded player nowadays, Bourdy has picked up four European Tour wins since then and his straight hitting looks a great fit on a course where keeping the ball in the fairway is a key asset. The 32-year-old owns five top 25s in his last six visits to China so should be an automatic pick for players of the European Tour Fantasy game.

Grégory Bourdy has plenty to offer gamers ahead of his third appearance in the Joburg Open at Royal Johannesburg & Kensington.

A T5 in the Malaysian Open on his last start three weeks ago added to a T13 in the Dubai Desert Classic and another T5 in Qatar. The Frenchman is also a noted performer in this part of the world. He's cashed in five of his last six starts on South African soil and that run includes a second place in the 2013 Africa Open, a third in the 2012 Alfred Dunhill Championship and a T16 in this event last year. Bourdy is a four-time European Tour winner, his most recent success coming in the 2013 ISPS Handa Wales Open.
Feb 24 - 8:48 AM

Grégory Bourdy closed with a 3-under-par 34-35=69 to take a share of fifth place at the Maybank Malaysian Open on 11-under 277.

Thanks to rounds of 70-70-68-69, this was the Frenchman's second top five in his last three starts following a T5 in the Qatar Masters two weeks ago. Bourdy started fast with an eagle-3 at the third hole and added a birdie at five before any hopes of a title charge were wiped out with back-to-back bogeys. He responded with a birdie at eight and was steady after that with nine straight pars and a birdie at 18. His 11 greens in regulation was his worst tally for the week but he kept his score intact by going 5-for-7 in scrambling.
Feb 8 - 4:11 AM

Grégory Bourdy scored a hole-in-one on the 15th hole at Kuala Lumpur G&CC in round two of the Maybank Malaysian Open.

His ace -- struck with a 6-iron from 197 yards -- was the highlight of a 2-under-par 34-36=70 which took him to 4-under 140 at the midpoint. It was the second hole-in-one of the week there following Paul Waring's in round one and later on Friday there was a third when England's Jake Higginbottom holed out with a 7-iron. Bourdy had a slow start to his day with four pars and a bogey at 11 before he jarred his tee shot at 15. He followed straight up with a birdie at 16 and added another at the third. Bourdy's card took a hit with successive bogeys at five and six but he added one final par breaker at the par-3 eighth to post his second straight 70 and move into the top 10.
Feb 6 - 5:26 AM

Grégory Bourdy will carry plenty of confidence into this week's Maybank Malaysian Open after a strong finish to the Gulf Swing.

Following a steady T37 in Abu Dhabi, the Frenchman moved up a gear and closed with a 65 to finish tied fifth in the Qatar Masters. He built on that with a T13 in Dubai last week, again saving his best for the final round by carding a Sunday 66. Gamers should note that Bourdy also has a liking for Kuala Lumpur G&CC. He was runner-up there in this event in 2011 and also finished T11 in 2013 and T18 in 2014. The planets seem aligned for the Frenchman to be a real factor.
Feb 2 - 6:03 PM

Grégory Bourdy scorched Doha Golf Club for a 7-under-par 30-35=65 to finish tied fifth at the Commercial Bank Qatar Masters on 15-under 273.

The Frenchman was irresistible in the early stages as he circled six birdies on the front nine to turn in 30. That run included a quartet of birdie threes at four, five, six and seven before a par breaker at the ninth vaulted him into a tie for the lead. Perhaps inevitably, the birdies dried up on the back nine and the momentum was lost with five pars and a bogey at 15. He did circle birdies at 17 and 18 though to secure his first top five in nine starts in Qatar. The standout stat from Bourdy was that he hit 51 of 54 greens in regulation over the final three rounds.
Jan 24 - 9:48 AM

Grégory Bourdy is finally a factor at the Abu Dhabi Golf Championship after shooting a six-under-par 33-33=66 in round one.

Bourdy has missed five of eight cuts and never cracked the top 30 in eight previous visits to the par 72. But a bogey-free 66 -- his lowest round by two shots in 23 circuits of Abu Dhabi GC - thrust him into tied second place on the opening morning. The four-time European Tour winner set the tone with a birdie at the first and made further gains at five, eight, 10, 11 and 14. He parred in to sit just a stroke behind early leader Thomas Pieters of Belgium.
Jan 15 - 6:17 AM

Grérgory Bourdy is a veteran of four installments of The Open Championship and makes his fifth start at Royal Liverpool later this week.

Bourdy has never missed a cut, but has also never cracked the top 35. He was trending well with a T8 at The Irish Open and a T12 at the Alstom Open de France before missing the cut in Scotland last week. Considering his modest history in The Open and his recent record of success on the European Tour, he's worth a flier if the needed result is just a weekend tee time.

With birdies on his final three holes, Grégory Bourdy recorded a two-stroke victory at the ISPS Handa Wales Open at 8-under-par 276.

The Frenchman started the final round in the penultimate group at Celtic Manor three swings adrift of 54-hole leader Peter Uihlein in the final pairing. Bourdy captured an eagle-3 the second hole to lay the groundwork for what would go in the books as a 4-under 34-33=71. Uihlein exhausted his overnight margin by the fourth hole after one birdie and two bogeys. Bourdy grabbed a two-shot lead with a birdie at 11 against Uihlein's bogey at 10, but then bogeyed 13 and 14 to keep the American alive. After a par at 15, which Uihlein birdied, Bourdy closed birdie-birdie-birdie thanks to clutch putting. Uilhein parred 16 and picked up a birdie at 17 but suffered a bogey-6 at the last to cement his deficit. This marks the 31-year-old's fourth European Tour victory. It's his first since 2009.
