Ross Fisher will have to go low on the weekend to hold onto his Tshwane Open trophy after finishing his second round eight off the lead.
There was nothing much wrong with his 3-under-par 34-33=67 on Friday but he was looking for something a few shots better after only carding a modest 60 in round one. At 4-under 136, he's currently in the top 20 after the completion of the morning wave at Pretoria CC but there are some strong names above him and he's a full eight shots behind leader Adrian Otaegui. Somewhat curiously, Fisher didn't manage a single birdie on day one even though he did card an eagle at 12 against a sole bogey at 16. Today's scorecard was more conventional, featuring birdies at 10, 12, 3, 4 and 9 against bogeys at 11 and 1. He was leader at halfway when winning this tournament at Copperhead last year.

Ross Fisher has more to contend with than most defending champions when he puts his Tshwane Open title on the line this week.

Fisher won the trophy on the wide-open grasslands of the Els Club at Copperleaf 12 months ago but this year's tournament moves to Pretoria CC which features tighter fairways and smaller greens. The Englishman also has a new time zone to adjust to after jetting in from Florida. He should be in good spirits, however, having finished T23 in elite company at the WGC-Cadillac Championship. Fisher was down in 65th place after an opening 78 but improved his position after each round to crack the top 25. That was his first start since a T20 in Dubai over a month ago so rust could have explained his poor opening lap. Gamers shouldn't be too concerned about Fisher tackling a new course this week as he has a win (this event), a second, a third and a T10 in his last five starts in South Africa so excels in this part of the globe.

Ross Fisher spun a 3-under-par 36-33=69 in the third round of the World Golf Championships-Cadillac Championship to reach the 54-hole mark at 2-over 218.

Fisher had a bit of a wild front nine at Trump National Doral's Blue Monster Course, circling four birdies to go with two bogeys and a double bogey. His back nine looked a lot better on paper, featuring six pars and three birdies. Three of his red figures dropped from longer than 20 feet, including a 39'2" effort on the par-4 17th. He landed 15 GIR, which was easily his best iron performance of the tournament.

Thanks to finishing in the top 20 of the 2014 European Tour Race to Dubai, Ross Fisher lines up at the World Golf Championships-Cadillac Championship.

The Englishman played in this event four straight years from 2008-2011 but never cracked the top 30. He'll be hoping the redesign at Trump National Doral's Blue Monster will suit him better. Fisher is riding high in third place on this year's Race to Dubai thanks to a second place at the season-opening Nedbank Golf Challenge in South Africa and two other top 20s. The most recent came in the Dubai Desert Classic over a month ago so the five-time European Tour winner is lacking competitive action heading to Florida.

Current form trumped course form for Ross Fisher at the Abu Dhabi HSBC Golf Championship as he closed with a 6-under 35-31=66 to finish T9.

Fisher had never even made the top 30 in six previous starts in Abu Dhabi but two runner-up finishes at the end of 2014 suggested he could finally thrive. He did, thanks to a solid week which was given late gloss with five birdies in his final seven holes. Fisher bogeyed the first and fifth but shot under par on the front nine via birdies at three, four and eight. After pars at 10 and 11, he got hot on the back nine and circled birdies at 12, 13, 15, 17 and 18 to land a back-door top 10.

Ross Fisher has missed half of his six cuts at the Abu Dhabi Golf Championship but has strong recent form ahead of this year's event.

Despite the course yielding plenty of low scores down the years, Fisher has managed just four rounds in the 60s in 18 circuits of the par 72. He missed the cut in 2007, 2008 and 2014 and his best is a modest T31 in 2011. On the plus side, he ended his 2014 campaign with a second place in the Nedbank Golf Challenge in South Africa and was also runner-up at November's BMW Masters in China.

Fifteen golfers qualified for the 2015 World Golf Championships-Cadillac Championship when the final Race to Dubai ranking went official today.

The DP World Tour Championship marked the finale on the 2014 European Tour schedule. Golfers inside the top 20 not previously exempt into the no-cut perk at Trump National Doral's Blue Monster Course on March 5-8 earned berths. Ross Fisher of England finished 20th with 1,574,123 points, just 3,908 clear of 50-year-old Spaniard Miguel Angel Jiménez in 21st place. The Brit is one of 15 to gain entry into the WGC. The others: Henrik Stenson (2nd in R2D); Jamie Donaldson (4th); Victor Dubuisson (5th); Marcel Siem (7th); Brooks Koepka (8th); Alexander Levy (9th); Shane Lowry (10th); Joost Luiten (11th); Thomas Björn (12th); Ian Poulter (13th); Graeme McDowell (14th); Stephen Gallacher (16th); Louis Oosthuizen (17th); Mikko Ilonen (18th); Tommy Fleetwood (19th).

Ross Fisher will compete in the PGA Championship at Valhalla Golf Club this week.

Fisher enters the week 96th in the current Official World Golf Ranking, and the PGA traditionally includes the top 100 players. His most recent peak in the OWGR was 68th after winning the Tshwane Open in March of 2014. His recent form isn't anything to write home about, but he is known to be a lengthy player, which is a benefit at Valhalla.

Ross Fisher has gained entry into next week's Open Championship.

Fisher was the first alternate when Mark O'Meara withdrew today. The Englishman is 4-for-6 in this major with a personal-best T13 at Turnberry in 2009. He opened the Scottish Open with a 4-over-par 75. The top three inside the top 10 at Royal Aberdeen not already exempt into next week's field at Royal Liverpool will punch tickets.

Ross Fisher concluded the Tshwane Open with a 2-under-par 35-35=70 to post 20-under 268, good for a three-stroke victory over Northern Ireland's Michael Hoey and Danie Van Tonder of South Africa.

It's been four years since the Englishman last emerged with a trophy. He was then a member of the victorious European Ryder Cup team at Celtic Manor, but since fell outside the top 150 in the Official World Golf Ranking. He arrived at Copperleaf Golf & County Estates in Centurion, South Africa, this week slotted 82nd. Fisher held the outright lead after 36 and 54 holes en route to his fifth career title on his home circuit. While he bogeyed the par-4 18th, Fisher's eagle from 25 feet at the par-5 15th provided a late cushion. "I'm thrilled to get over the line," he said. "It was a testing day with the weather conditions and playing with Mike he put up a great challenge for me. I set a target of trying to go out there and shoot in the 60s and almost managed to do it. I had a little mishap on the last but I'm just glad to be standing here talking to you as champion."

Overnight co-leader Ross Fisher signed for a 1-under-par 35-34=69 in his second round of the Wyndham Championship to reach the midpoint in 7-under 133, four back of the 36-hole clubhouse lead.

A letdown was to be expected by a guy that hasn't flashed any impressive form all year and making his first appearance at Sedgefield. He hit 14 greens in regulation today but converted only three times, all from seven feet and in. He fanned on four chances inside 10 feet, two of which resulting in both of his bogeys -- at Nos. 9 and 10.

Ross Fisher spun a bogey-free, 6-under-par 33-31=64 in his opening round of the Wyndham Championship, good for a piece of the overnight lead with Chris Stroud.

You remember this guy, right? He was a Q School grad but he's played only once in the last nine weeks (MC, Reno-Tahoe) due to commitments on his home circuit in Europe. The Brit arrived in Greensboro ranked 162nd in FedExCup points and 166th in earnings, but with his pedigree, turning his season around in four days isn't a tall ask. In his first competitive round at Sedgefield today, he split 11 (of 14) fairways and hit 16 greens in regulation. Fisher sandwiched an eagle from 6'8" at the par-5 fifth hole with four birdies, including respective conversions from 17'10", 16 feet and 28'6" at the 10th, 18th and seventh holes. He also poured in par saves from 10'9" at 14 and 21'7" at No. 16. At the time he signed his card, his strokes gained-putting split sat north of 4.000. It'll likely stay there, too, as he went out in the day's final threesome off the 10th tee.

Ross Fisher makes his 15th PGA TOUR start of the year at the Wyndham Championship.

Fisher’s experiment with playing both the PGA TOUR and the European Tour has largely been a failure. In his 14 starts on the PGA TOUR, he’s made just six cuts and ranks 162nd in the FedExCup standings. It will be interesting to see if he drops down to the Tour playoffs, assuming he doesn't make a big move inside the top 125, in an effort to earn a 2013-14 PGA TOUR card, or if he concentrates his efforts fully on the European Tour in 2014.

Ross Fisher signed for a 2-under-par 35-35=70 in a rain-soaked final round of the Wells Fargo Championship to end his week at 4-under 284.

Fisher's best finish of 2013 was a T21 back at Torrey Pines in January until this week's venture at Quail Hollow. His final round featured five birdies to just three bogeys. He will not tee it up in next week's THE PLAYERS, but seems to have found something in his game that will serve him well as soon as he can pick up another tee time.

Ross Fisher comes to the Zurich Classic of New Orleans for the first time having secured paychecks in just half of his 10 starts in 2013.

It’s been a disappointing rookie season for the European Tour veteran, still searching to nab his first top 20. The putter has been the major problem, ranking 179th in strokes gained. It’s not all that uncommon for European regulars to struggle with the quick pace of PGA TOUR greens, as those on their home tour generally run a little slower.
