Englishman Ross Fisher hunted down the leader Alex Levy with a final round of 7-under-par 31-33=64, but came up short in the play-off at the Porsche European Open at Golf Resort Bad Griesbach.
The Englishman posted 19-under 194 after his birdie putt on the final green slipped over the edge of the hole and then watched Levy hole from 8-feet to force a play-off. Alas Fisher made two pars in the extra holes whilst Levy made birdie at the second time of asking. But Fisher had played the better golf all day, indeed he was flawless in chasing the Frenchman. He opened with birdies at 1 and 3, then added a hat-trick at 8, 9 and 10, before a brace at 15 and 16 put the long time leader under pressure. In the final round Fisher found 17 greens in regulation and he ended the week 8-for-9 in Scrambling. The result is his best of the year, bettering his T6 at both the Open de Espana and Nordea Masters. Sep 25 - 12:22 PM

Ross Fisher took lunch in solo second on 12-under 130, five shots behind the leader Alex Levy, after the early wave of second round starters had completed their rounds at the Porsche European Open.

The Englishman carded a 6-under-par 32-33=65, his second 65 of the week, but it took a long time coming as fog again disrupted the morning start. Having made four red numbers on the back nine during Friday's play, at 10, 12, 15 and 17, he had added another at No. 1. On returning to the course Saturday he notched a final birdie at the 7th. It is now 27 holes since his last dropped shot. His 65s have more than the total in common: he found 14 greens in regulation both times and also 27 putts. The Golf Resort Bad Griesbach hosted tournament is now 54-holes.

Ross Fisher painted a first round of 6-under-par 31-34=65 in the Porsche European Open at Golf resort Bad Griesbach.

The Englishman was one of many who had to return to the course early Friday, and was soon back in the clubhouse for another stoppage, and then yet again in mid morning, before finally carding his opening lap. He had made four birdies in five holes at 2, 3, 4 and 6 on the front nine and completed the back nine with more red at 10, 12 and 14, before dropping a shot at the final hole. He landed 14 greens in regulation, went 3-for-4 in Scrambling and needed just 27 swings of the putter to end the round three behind the leader.

Ross Fisher authored a bogey-free 5-under-par 32-34=66 in round two of the KLM Open in the Netherlands and at 6-under 136 is just one shot adrift of Scott Hend's clubhouse lead.

Fisher has been boom or bust in this tournament with three missed cuts, a third and a sixth in the last five years. This time it appears he's set for another big week after flourishing in round two at The Dutch, Colin Montgomerie's new course which is being used on the European Tour for the first time. Fisher started fast with birdies at 10, 12 and 14 before adding another at 17 to turn in 32. He was calmer on his second nine but splashed one last drop of red at 3 before parring his way to the clubhouse. He hit 9 (of 13) fairways and an impressive 16 greens in regulation, saving par both times he missed. Although he's jumped over 40 spots today, the former Ryder Cup star will still feel he should be higher. Fisher couldn't birdie any of the three par 5s in round two while in his opening 69 he swallowed a triple bogey-7 at the par-4 2nd.
Sep 9 - 9:57 AM

Ross Fisher blitzed the Crans-sur-Sierre GC with a second round of 7-under-par 33-30=63 to hit the halfway point of the Omega European Masters on 5-under 135.

When he took lunch the Englishman was four shots behind the clubhouse leader, but inside the top ten after equalling his lowest 18-hole score in his 7th visit to the Swiss mountains. Those six previous trips earned him a T5 in 2013, but usually he struggles: he's missed four cuts and that top five is his only finish inside the top 60. He can expect to add to that meagre tally this weekend. On his opening nine he ticked red at 11, 14 and 18, but squared the 16th for a second day running. He then turned the front nine red, circling 2, 4, 7, 8 and 9. He's succeeded this week despite finding only 12 of 28 fairways and succesfully scrambling only twice in 10 tries.

Ross Fisher rocketed up the leaderboard of the 98th PGA Championship following a 4-under-par 32-34=66 during the opening round.

The Englishman was clicking on all cylinders, tee-to-green, but struggled to find his putting stroke early on. After missing a 5'10" birdie attempt at the first, he also whiffed on a 4'2" par-saving attempt at the third. He didn't let that ruin his round, as great ball-striking (16 GIR) led to plenty of chances for redemption. That's exactly what he did, splashing home five birdies from outside nine feet including a 23'3" bomb at the par-4 second hole. The 35-year-old is making his seventh start at the PGA Championship, with just one finish inside the top 40 on his resume. If Fisher can continue to splash greens at an 89 percent clip then he'll easily add a second top 40 to that CV.

Course horse Ross Fisher painted a second-round 4-under-par 33-35=68 at the Nordea Masters in Sweden on Friday and nudged up five spots on the leaderboard to T2.

An eagle-3 at 9 was the highlight of his afternoon lap of Bro Hof Slott while the Englishman also added birdies at 6, 13 and 15. He squared his only bogey on the par-5 12th. Two rounds of 68 have lifted Fisher to 8-under 136 at halfway and, right now, that's T2 in the clubhouse alongside morning finisher Nicolas Colsaerts and three behind leader Matthew Fitzpatrick. In two previous appearances at the Stockholm venue, Fisher has finished runner-up and T8 so expect more of the same over the weekend.

Ross Fisher dissected the course Thursday with a superb 4-under-par 32-36-68 in the Nordea Masters.

The Englishman has a sensational record on the Robert Trent Jones Jr. layout, finishing runner-up in 2012 and closing with a 64 in 2013 to post T8. With his opening volley he's on track to notch a third top ten. His lap, beginning on the back nine, could hardly have got off to a better start: he parred 10, made birdie at 11 and 12, then added eagle-3 at 13 to be 4-under through 4. A bogey at 14 stopped early chatter of a really low number and yet Fisher was not done, adding more red at 17 and 2, before squaring No. 4. He found 13 greens in regulation and saved par 4-from-5 when off the dance floor.

Ross Fisher has been a member at Wentworth since 1994 and returns there for this week's BMW PGA Championship.

The Englishman won a scholarship there as a youngster and played the course every day for several years. That inside course knowledge has served him well at times but not always. Fisher finished runner-up in the 2009 edition and also made the top 10 the following year but, more recently, he's missed three of his last four cuts. He started well in Ireland last week before fading to T54 but last month the 35-year-old posted T6 in the Open de Espana at Valderrama (another tree-lined course) and followed it with T16 at the Shenzhen International. He's 12-for-12 worldwide since November.

With a 3-under-par 35-34=69, former winner Ross Fisher posted the clubhouse lead on day one of the Dubai Duty Free Irish Open at the K Club.

Fisher won the 2010 edition at Killarney and has three other top 10s in the event. He carried all those good experiences to the K Club today and wasn't fazed by a double bogey-7 at 16 which de-railed his flying start. The Englishman opened with birdies at 10, 13 and 14 but, after his mishap at the 570-yard par 5, he circled further red at 4, 6 and 9 against bogeys at 1 and 5 to edge in front on a morning of tough scoring. He was later joined at the top by double major winner Martin Kaymer. Fisher is 11-for-11 worldwide since the start of November with a best of T6 in last month's Open de Espana so this is a continuation of that fine form. He hit 12 greens in regulation today after finding 9 (of 14) fairways.
May 19 - 8:17 AM

Ross Fisher plugged away for a 1-over-par 36-36=72 in round three of the Open de Espana and, having played early, he found himself at the end of play in solo 5th heading in the final round on 3-over 216.

In the vicious conditions his effort was more than enough to see him climb the leaderboard and offer him the opportunity to claim a first victory since the Tshwane Open of March 2014. Unlike many his long game stood up to the test. The raw figures may not be immediately impressive, but in hitting 10 of 14 fairways and making 11 greens in regulation he was ahead of the pack. His record of 4-for-7 in scrambling also helped his cause as he ticked red on 3, 9, 11 and 17. He made bogey on 1, 4 and 6, and double bogey on the par-3 12th. In four previous visits to Valderrama Fisher has been the model of consistency but it is the first time he has contended so deep into the tournament. Can he maintain the challenge? Those four trips in the past were all top 23 finishes, but the best was T11 in the 2008 Volvo Masters. He lies two off Mike Lorenzo-Vera's lead.
Apr 16 - 12:23 PM

Ross Fisher finished in a share of 23rd place at last year's WGC-Cadillac Championship and returns this week for another crack at Trump National Doral’s Blue Monster Course.

The Englishman arrived at the last WGC event in November, the HSBC Champions, with no form to speak of. He went on to finish T3 in Shanghai, China, and used that finish as a springboard to more success. Since that start, he's posted top 30s in 3-of-5 starts. Fisher may continue to ride his wave of form into a second straight top 25 at Trump National Doral, making him a great under-the-radar option this week.

Ross Fisher makes a ninth visit to the Omega Dubai Desert Classic hoping he can recapture some of his early magic there.

The Englishman will want to halt what has become something of a deteriorating relationship with the Emirates GC. It all started so well on debut, when a 65-65 start gave him the halfway lead. He failed to maintain the pace but a T5 was a good return for him in 2007. In each of his next four visits he made the top 15, without ever getting back in the top five. Then in his last three visits the form has deserted him, finishing T66-MC-T20. He opened the season with T15 in the Nedbank and T35 two weeks ago in Abu Dhabi. Any positive vibes may come from either the 67 he closed with in Abu Dhabi or the 66 he shot in round four 12 months ago, a reminder perhaps of the good times in Dubai.

England's Ross Fisher and Sweden's Kristoffer Broberg might not strike observers as an obvious pairing, but they had synergy in their EurAsia Cup opening day 6&4 thrashing of Korea's K.T.Kim and Thailand's Prayad Marksaeng.

The Asian duo were 2-under for the 14 holes they played, but it was no match for the Euros, who were 8-under between them. Broberg made three par breakers whilst Fisher, a star of the 2010 Ryder Cup, made five including the birdie-3 on the 14th which confirmed victory and allowed their punchdrunk opponents to get out of the ring. Of his selection process European captain Darren Clarke said: "I know them well and I like to think I know what makes them tick. If I have an idea of who each guy will play with, and that's backed up by the stats then that's quite good I reckon." In day one's fourballs his policy worked as Clarke's team took a 4.5-1.5 lead.
Jan 15 - 4:02 AM

Ross Fisher had to settle for a 1-under-par 33-38=71 in Friday's second round at the BMW Masters in China after dropping three shots in his final five holes.

The Englishman looked as if he could challenge the lead after hitting 10-under with a birdie at 13 but he squared bogeys at 14, 15 and 18 to fall back to 7-under 137 at the midpoint. That's five swings behind halfway pacesetter Lucas Bjerregaard. Fisher hit all 18 greens in regulation in Thursday's 66 and found another 15 in the right number today. He's taken 63 putts so far and will need to sharpen up on the greens this weekend.
