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, "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.

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.

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.

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.
