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.

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.

Gregory Bourdy will tee it up for a sixth time in the WGC-HSBC Champions tournament at Sheshan International GC in Shanghai.

His record in China is pretty solid with just three weekends missed in 26 starts there, but it's worth bearing in mind that the record is boosted by elite field events such as this and the BMW Masters which don't feature cuts. And it would be something of a surprise if the Frenchman made any sort of headway this week because in five previous visits to the event he has never once finished inside the top 20 – and only once finished better than T39 (when T21 three years ago). Moreover he has gone sub-70 just five times in 20 rounds on the course. His last top ten finish came at the Lyoness Open in early June, since when he is 8-for-10 but has only twice finished inside the top 20 – but they were decent T18s at the U.S. Open and PGA Championship.

Grégory Bourdy is one of just 11 players in this week's British Masters who has tasted competitive action at The Grove.

Unfortunately, the Frenchman performed the worst of that bunch 10 years ago when carding 74-77-71-75 to finish T59 in the WGC-American Express Championship won by Tiger Woods. Still, that was then and this is now and Bourdy will hope he can make a better fist of it this time. The recently-married Frenchman comes in off T41 in the Alfred Dunhill Links Championship having previously teed it up in the Web.com Finals where he failed to secure a PGA TOUR card after going MC-38. He's got a solid recent record in England, going 6-for-6 over the last four years and posting top 15s in the 2013 and 2016 BMW PGA Championships at Wentworth.

Olympian Grégory Bourdy takes his talents to Boise, Idaho, for his Web.com Tour debut at this week's Albertsons Boise Open presented by Kraft Nabisco, the second leg of the Web.com Tour Finals.

The Frenchman is fresh off a week where he said "I do," delaying his attempt at earning PGA TOUR status for the 2016-17 season. Now he'll get started on that goal in Boise, Idaho, perhaps with a little extra pep in his step after tying the knot so recently. During the 2016 calendar year, Bourdy has played 20 events internationally, grabbing top 25s in 11 of them, missing the cut in just three. His biggest weapon is consistency but with just three weeks to earn his stripes, the 34-year-old will have to turn it up a notch. Luckily, he sports four wins on the European Tour over his career. On the down side, the latest came back at the 2013 ISPS Handa Wales Open, so it's been a few years since he's crossed the line. At 112th in the Official World Golf Rankings, he will be one of the most well-seasoned talents on display this week at Hillcrest Country Club.

Grégory Bourdy stumbled across the finish line with a 1-over-par 34-38=72 during round three of the Men's Olympic Golf Competition in Rio, falling back to 5-under 208 for the week.

The Frenchman opened the day in fourth place and circled birdies in three of his first six holes (one bogey as well) to reach 8-under on the week. He played 3-over golf for the remaining 12 holes, including bogeys in four of his last five holes. Bourdy maintained his accuracy off the tee, adding 12 more fairways hit today (35-of-39 on the week). The real problem came with the flat stick today, as he lost 3.590 strokes putting in round three. Despite this setback, the 34-year-old will enter the finale just four strokes behind third place, meaning a coveted medal is certainly still in his grasps.

Grégory Bourdy barreled through the Olympic Golf Course with a 2-under-par 34-35=69 during round two of the Men's Olympic Golf Competition, reaching the midpoint at 6-under 136, currently inside the top 5 on the live leaderboard.

The Frenchman was one of 16 golfers to post sub-70 rounds on Thursday and he followed it up with another good one today. Today, he split 12 (of 13) fairways to kick the momentum rolling, but most of his damage was done with the flat stick. He saved par twice with putts in the 15-to-20 foot range and also splashed in a 13'10" birdie at the par-4 third. Through two rounds, he's split 88.46% of fairways (23-of-26) and will keep his name in the mix over the weekend if he can maintain that accuracy off the tee.

Gregory Bourdy kicked off his week at the 31st Olympiad with a 4-under-par 33-34=67 while taking on the Gil Hanse designed Olympic Golf Course.

The Frenchman put on a ball-striking clinic today, splitting 11 (of 13) fairways and landing 15 greens in regulation. His average proximity to the hole was 27'2", bettered by only Martin Kaymer and Marcus Fraser in round one. Bourdy traded five birdies with one bogey today and walked off the course gaining 2.603 strokes putting. Bourdy entered the week with top 25s in six of his last seven starts, internationally. Given his current form there is no reason to expect a decline from the World No. 107th ranked golfer as the week progresses.

Gregory Bourdy might be hoping to thrive on the greens at this week's Men's Olympic Golf Competition in Rio de Janeiro.

The Frenchman is another who has found the Gil Hanse-designed Castle Stuart something of a conundrum, struggling to record finishes of MC-T49-T52-T49. It's far from all bad however. He arrives in a run of form that sees him 11-for-12, a stretch that includes a rare visit to the PGA Tour, and a smart enough T35 at Coco Beach in the Puerto Rico Open. It's far from an exact parallel, but blustery conditions and links-like rather than genuine linksland offer some sort of clue. He may also be emboldened by scratching two T18s into his log book at Oakmont and Baltusrol, the first top 20 finishes of his Major Championship career. Has finished T2 at both East London GC and Kuala Lumpur GC, both of which have paspalum grass on the greens, as does this week's venue, the Olympic Golf Course.

Gregory Bourdy held the lead on his own during the second round of the 116th U.S. Open before slipping late and finishing two shots off Dustin Johnson's clubhouse target after signing for a 3-under-par 33-34=67.

The Frenchman, who opened with a 71, dropped to 2-over after an opening bogey on Saturday morning before an incredible burst of scoring took him into the lead on 5-under. He started his move with back-to-back birdies at 5 and 6, added another at 9 and then holed out for eagle from 137 yards at 11. Two superb irons to 13 and 14 set up another pair of par breakers and edged him a shot clear of Johnson before Oakmont decided to bite back, Bourdy swallowing a bogey at 16 and a walk-off double bogey-6 at 18. Despite the ugly finish, at 2-under 138 he sits T3 on the live leaderboard and in position to challenge on the weekend. Bourdy piped 11 (of 14) fairways in round two, hit 13 greens in regulation and took 27 putts. He's never finished better than T39 in eight major starts but came to Pennsylvania in strong form (T6-T15-T10 last three finishes on the European Tour).

Joint-halfway leader Gregory Bourdy endured a pair of double bogeys on his opening nine but recovered to card a 2-under-par 37-33=70 on day three of the Lyoness Open in Austria and will start the final round just two off the pace.

The Frenchman dropped four shots with a 5 at the par-3 2nd hole and a 6 at the par-4 8th but circles at 1, 4 and 7 stopped him spiralling down the leaderboard. Bourdy then found a birdie at 12 before splashing red at 17 and 18 to arrive at 9-under 207. At close of play, that was just two swings behind Zander Lombard so the 34-year-old, who hit 13 greens in regulation for the third day running, is still right in the mix. In this event last year, Bourdy led after 54 holes before shooting a 78 on Sunday. He'll hope to banish those memories in the best possible style tomorrow.

With a walk-off birdie at No.9, Gregory Bourdy completed a 3-under-par 35-34=69 in round two of the Lyoness Open which by the end of the day was good enough for a share of the halfway lead with Zander Lombard on 7-under 137, one ahead of Gary Stal.

Given his mix of course and current form, the Frenchman was a popular pick for gamers this week and, so far, expectation and outcome are on the same path. Bourdy made a slow start with three pars and a bogey at 11 but got back into red figures for the day with successive birdies at 14 and 15. He picked up another shot at 2 and then put his approach at 9 to a couple of feet to sign off in style. Stats-wise, Bourdy only split 5 (of 14) fairways compared to 10 in his opening 68 but still managed to hit the same number of greens in regulation (13). He was 4-for-5 in scrambling today and is 7-for-10 in that category through 36 holes. He led this event by 4 strokes after 36 holes in 2015 before drifting backwards in round four - he'll be hoping to avoid that error this weekend.

After the slingshot of an opening eagle-3, Gregory Bourdy compiled a 4-under-par 33-35=68 in round one of the Lyoness Open in Austria.

That's currently T5 on the leaderboard, somewhere Bourdy is used to being in this tournament. Twelve months ago he was the 18, 36 and 54-hole leader here before slipping back to T6 after a closing 78. Also T8 and T18 on his other two starts in the Lyoness, Bourdy followed his opening eagle with a bogey at 2 but birdied 3 and 4 to continue his move. The Frenchman was quieter after that with three circles (9, 10 and 16) against two bogeys (7 and 17) but this was another strong day's work and puts him four behind leader Adrian Otaegui. He'd come into the event off the back of T15 at the BMW PGA Championship and T10 at the Irish Open so the four-time European Tour winner was one of the most popular picks with gamers this week.

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.
