Gregory Bourdy, the 2009 winner, had only missed the cut once in nine previous appearances at the Hong Kong Open but he won't be playing the weekend this time after a second-round 1-over-par 36-35=71 on Friday and 36-hole total of 6-over 146 left him four shots outside the cut line of 2-over 142.
The main damage was done in a first-round 75 and the Frenchman couldn't repair it today after firing three birdies against four bogeys. A good chance to put some early Race to Dubai points on the board has passed him by. A total of 69 players made it through but others to miss the cut at Fanling include: 143- Chase Koepka, Alejandro Canizares ... 144- Soomin Lee, David Howell, Prom Meesawat ... 145- Jeunghun Wang, David Lipsky, Marcus Fraser ... 146- Aaron Rai ... 147- David Drysdale ... 148- Oliver Fisher, Austin Connelly ... 151- Jorge Campillo.

Gregory Bourdy scraped through his back nine to post 1-under-par 33-38=71 on his way to T4 on 14-under 264 in the Alfred Dunhill Links Championship on the Old Course, St. Andrews.

The Frenchman finished fully ten swings back of playing partner and winner Tyrrell Hatton but will be pleased with his week’s work. It bettered his previous best in the tournament of T9 in 2009 and is only his third top 20 in 13 visits. Moreover it shores up his season after picking up just one previous top 20 finish. On the front nine he made three birdies at 1, 3 and 7. With a charge on he was not making as much red as his opponents and he struggled with the back nine more too, ticking no holes but squaring 12 and 17. "My driving was not good enough today," he admitted. "I've had a solid game the last few weeks but the results were not so good. So I stayed focused and I stayed patient, a very good week."
Oct 8 - 1:50 PM

Gregory Bourdy is all set to record a career-best finish in the Alfred Dunhill Links Championship after a third round of 6-under-par 34-32=66 at Carnoustie left him alone in second on 13-under 203.

The Frenchman will need something extra special to conquer the 54-hole leader and defending champion Tyrrell Hatton, who leads by five, but he is in prime position to improve on the T9 he recorded in this event back in 2009, his only top ten finish in 12 visits to the tournament. He played the toughest of the tracks on Saturday and plotted a strong path through the back nine, ticking 10, 14 and 16, with just the one error at the 17th. But on the front nine he was electric, making birdie at four holes in a row from the third to skate clear of the pack, even if Hatton set a pace he could not match. The Frenchman has only one top 20 finish this season, T3 in the Shenzhen International, and a repeat of that result would give him hopes of making the lucrative top 65 in the Race to Dubai.
Oct 7 - 1:33 PM

Grégory Bourdy owns a pair of top seven finishes in the Portugal Masters and heads back to Dom Pedro Victoria Golf Course this week for another crack.

This will be the Frenchman's ninth start at the venue, his peaks coming with T7 in both 2008 and 2014 although the latter was in a year when rain caused the tournament to be reduced to 36 holes. Also T22 in 2010, Bourdy needs to find something to make the top 60 who contest the season-ending DP Tour Championship. He's qualified for five of the last seven but finds himself outside the top 60 this time having banked just a single top 10 this season, T3 in April's Shenzhen International in China. T25 in the D+D REAL Czech Masters two starts ago suggests something good could be around the corner although he'll need his current cold putter to start matching his still impressive iron play.
Sep 19 - 7:24 AM

Gregory Bourdy returns to the D+D REAL Czech Masters at Albatross Golf Resort in Prague after missing the tournament last year.

In many ways this is a perfect week for Bourdy, whose four wins have (with the possible exception of the Hong Kong Open – he pushed Rory McIlroy into second) been up against second or third grade fields. His results here would back that up: he was T8 in 2015 and T23 (T2 at halfway, T4 after 54 holes) in 2014. But the big worry is his form because his entire 2017 season has been dependent on one result: T3 in the Shenzhen International. Bourdy is 11-for-17, good for some, but down on his usually gritty ability play weekend after weekend.
Aug 29 - 7:29 AM

Grégory Bourdy cracked the top 20 in last year's U.S. Open at Oakmont and will seek another strong showing in this week's edition at Erin Hills in Wisconsin.

That T18 represents his best finish in a major career which started in 2007, although he matched it a couple of months later when also posting T18 in the PGA Championship at Baltusrol. Those performances should give Bourdy new-found confidence this week and he'll arrive Stateside in decent form after T3 at the Shenzhen International in China and T21 in last month's Nordea Masters on his last four starts. A fan of links golf, the visuals at Erin Hills should be to his liking so he could represent a decent cheap option. Bourdy, who earned his spot as the first alternate from the Walton Heath sectional qualifier in England, starts out from 1st tee Thursday (12:41 local CDT) alongside Englishman Eddie Pepperell and American Chan Kim.
Jun 14 - 7:42 AM

Grégory Bourdy will have some useful memories to draw upon when he reacquaints himself with Barseback Golf & Country Club, the host venue for this week's Nordea Masters.

The coastal course in southern Sweden was last used on Tour in 2009 and Bourdy impressed there with solid rounds of 69-72-71-72 to post T10. That's his best finish in six previous appearances in this event while he also has T5 in a Challenge Tour event on Swedish soil way back in 2003. The experienced Frenchman played all four rounds at Wentworth but fell back on the weekend to finish T62. However, only two starts earlier we saw him bank a top three finish in the Shenzhen International in China where all parts of his game looked strong, notably his putting (3rd for Putting Average). With his previous good performance at Barseback, he could be a good value option.
May 31 - 7:42 AM

Gregory Bourdy cruised Genzon GC in the final round of the Shenzhen International, carding 5-under-par 34-33=67 to log 15-under 273 for the week, good for T3.

The Frenchman has a wonderfully solid record in China, going 25-for-28 with 18 of those finishes top 40, yet only once did he break the top ten - although it was a good one, when winning the 2009 Hong Kong Open. He finally added to that tally with a superb week in Shenzhen. On Sunday he squared the par-5 second, but thereafter moved only in the right direction. He ticked 3, 6 and 9 on the front nine, then 10, 16 and 17 on the back to come just one shot shy of the play-off. 122nd in the Race to Dubai ahead of the week, this result should kick start his 2017 campaign.
Apr 23 - 5:13 AM

Gregory Bourdy, the 2009 Hong Kong Open champion, opened the Shenzhen International with a 5-under-par round of 34-33=67 at Genzon GC.

The Frenchman was bogey free on Thursday as he reacquainted himself with a course he has twice pegged top 20 finishes on. He ticked 14 and 17 on the back nine, his first nine, then 1, 6 and 9 on his return to the clubhouse. An elegant way to move to within one shot of the early clubhouse lead of Bubba Watson. Bourdy has plenty of experience in China and is strong there. He is 25-for-28 in the country with 12 top 25 finishes, but he is yet to add to that triumph eight years ago.
Apr 20 - 3:52 AM

Grégory Bourdy recorded his second 2-under-par round of 35-36=71 of the week to move to 4-under 142 in the Trophee Hassan II, T3 heading into the weekend at Royal Golf Dar Es Salam.

The Frenchman lies just two shots back of his compatriot Gregory Havret with 36 holes to play as he seeks a first top ten finish in Morocco on his tenth appearance in the country. He started as he meant to go on, making birdie at the first for the second day in succession. His only dropped shots of the day followed at 4 and 7, but he closed out the back nine with birdie-2 at the ninth. The back nine was flawless, with numbers ticked at 10 and 14 - and yet he missed the opportunity to close on Havret by failing to make ground at the par-5 12th and 18th.
Apr 14 - 1:19 PM

Gregory Bourdy made five birdies in his opening round of 2-under-par 36-35=71 in the Trophee Hassan II at Royal Golf Dar Es Salam, one behind the early clubhouse leader of compatriot Gary Stal.

The Frenchman started his round from the 10th tee and promptly reeled off six straight pars. He then exploded into life with three red numbers in four holes (at 16, 18 and 1) with a blue added at 17. A second bogey followed at No. 3 and another ended the day at the 9th, but before then he added back-to-back par breakers at 7 and 8. This is his tenth appearance in Morocco, he is 6-for-9; a solid record that so far has nothing better than a T17 in this tournament’s 2014 renewal as a best. He was T34 on the Red Course in 2010 and T59 last year so is in a good position to improve on that.
Apr 13 - 9:33 AM

Grégory Bourdy will look to find a spark when he returns to Morocco for the Trophée Hassan II.

The Frenchman has made three of five cuts in the calendar year but is yet to crack the top 50. Not a surprise given that he's only managed to break 70 once in 15 rounds. Bourdy will be able to speak his native tongue this week and he's made his last three cuts in the tournament. The peak was T17 at Golf du Palais Royal in 2014 while at this week's venue, the Red Course at Royal Golf Dar Es Salam, he was T34 in 2010 and T59 last year. Bourdy is a four-time European Tour winner although the last of those came in 2013 and the other three were in the previous decade. His most recent top 10 came via T6 at last June's Lyoness Open in Austria.
Apr 11 - 8:23 AM

Grégory Bourdy stays in the Middle East this week to try and continue his impressive recent displays in the Commercial Bank Qatar Masters.

The Frenchman had a rather patchy record at Doha GC with three missed cuts in six starts but appeared to crack the code in 2015 when closing with a 65 to place T5. He was also third at the midpoint last year until slipping back to T13 after a closing 74. Bourdy has played three events on the 2017 schedule, missing the cut at the Alfred Dunhill Championship in South Africa but responding with T25 in the Hong Kong Open. He returned to action in last week's Abu Dhabi HSBC Championship but couldn't break 70 in any of his four rounds and had to settle for T60. With the rust off, it's reasonable to expect an improved performance at Doha where he's really found his feet recently.
Jan 23 - 3:30 PM

Gregory Bourdy is a solid performer on the European Tour; ahead of the 2018 Ryder Cup on his home soil can he take the step up in class required to get involved?

The Frenchman is in his 13th consecutive year on tour and only in the first campaign did he ever look close to losing his card. That said, despite being a four-time winner he is yet to finish better than the 25th in the Race to Dubai he pegged when last lifting a trophy in 2013. His wins have come at the Mallorca Classic, Open de Portugal, Hong Kong Open and Wales Open, decent wins, but not the strongest opposition and truth be told his top tens tell a similar story. He has 45 of those on the European Tour and only a T9 at the 2009 Alfred Dunhill Championship, T8 in the 2010 Dubai Desert Classic, T6 in the 2010 Open de France, T8 in the 2014 Irish Open and T5 in the 2015 Qatar Masters were from the higher grade. A solid pick outside the glamour events, but you need persuasive extra evidence when the big boys are in town.
Jan 6 - 6:48 AM

Grégory Bourdy sets his sights on the Turkish Airlines Open this week although the Frenchman will have a new course to negotiate.

The event switches from the Montgomerie Maxx to the Regnum Carya Golf & Spa Resort and that could be good news for Bourdy who didn't crack the top 30 in three visits to the former venue. He heads back to Turkey sitting 31st on the Race to Dubai following another consistent season. The 34-year-old has cashed in all but one event since March and has compiled 13 top 25 finishes starting with solo second at last November's Alfred Dunhill Championship in South Africa. He's just cooled off a little in his last four events, posting T52 in last week's WGC-HSBC Champions after previous finishes of T33, T41 and T36.
