Ross Fisher dug out a 1-under-par 36-35=71 in round two of the Nedbank Golf Challenge in Sun City, his 36-hole total of 3-under 141 good enough for T5 on the live leaderboard and four back from pacesetter Victor Dubuisson.
With tough conditions at Gary Player Country Club today, under par scores will move you forward and Fisher bounced back well after playing his first three holes in 2-over via bogeys at 2 and 3. He made his move around the turn with gains at 8, 9 and 10 before trading a circle at 14 with a bogey at 15. Fisher, who is 6th on the Race to Dubai, said: "That's probably one of the toughest rounds around this place I've played. If you make pars, you're going to be picking shots up, especially holes like 11 and 13, and even 18. They are difficult holes. So to come out and come away with 71, I'm very pleased with that." Fisher was runner-up at this course in 2014 and is now in position to go one better this weekend. Nov 10 - 8:49 AM

Ross Fisher heads to the WGC-HSBC Champions loaded with great course form at Sheshan International GC and exceptional current form too.

To smash a course record 61 and pull up second in one tournament (the Dunhill Links Championship) might be deemed unfortunate, to torch a final round 63 at the Italian Open seven days later, finish second again (to the same man), might be deemed unbelievable. Yet it is not only his golf of the last few weeks which is superb yet head scratching; he has an enigmatic history at this Shanghai venue too. On debut in 2007 he really should have won. A bogey at the last would have been enough, but he chipped through the green into water, made double, lost in a play-off to Phil Mickelson. In 2010 he was T4 after 54 holes before a R4 75; the last two years he has been T3 and T6; we can assume he likes it here. And just in case his recent form needs any further underlining, the stats suggest it is far from one dimensional. He topped the putting ranks in St Andrews, but it was top five Ball-Striking form which drove the success in Italy.

A final round bogey-free 8-under-par 31-32=63 was not quite enough to see Ross Fisher end his victory drought, as he settled for T2 at 20-under 264 in the Italian Open.

Fisher and playing partner Marcus Fraser lit up Golf Club Milano Sunday, the Englishman carding six birdies in the opening 10 holes to climb a jam-packed leaderboard. He made his second two of the round at the par-three 12th hole to move to 19-under before a sand-save birdie at the par-five 14th but then missed four birdie putts coming home. It still looked as though the former Ryder Cup player would earn a playoff but his total was ultimately one shy of Tyrrell Hatton, who Fisher had finished runner-up to one week earlier in Scotland. It’s now three and a half years since the last of five European Tour wins for Fisher, who would’ve looked to improve on an 0-5 playoff record had Hatton not finished off in style to beat him once again. Still, Fisher is now fourth in the Race To Dubai heading towards the end of the season.

Ross Fisher’s magnificent final round of 11-under-par 29-32=61 earned him a third career second placed finish in the Alfred Dunhill Links Championship on the Old Course, St. Andrews on 21-under 267.

For the second year running Fisher came second to Tyrrell Hatton by three shots but, boy, did he put up a fight with a scintillating lap. Three times he lashed the card: four red in a row at 2, 3, 4 and 5, a hat trick at 7, 8 and 9, then another burst of four at 12, 13, 14 and 15. "I just wanted to put in a good performance, and, if I could, repeat last year," he admitted afterwards. "Unfortunately Tyrrell was too far ahead. I managed to give him a little bit to think about coming down the stretch. I putted great today, big boost with courses I like coming up." It’s his eighth top three since his last win in early 2014.

Two-time Alfred Dunhill Links Championship runner-up Ross Fisher might be able to complete an unwanted hat-trick after his wild third round of 5-under-par 35-32=67 at Kingsbarns left him T4 on 10-under 206.

The Englishman is eight shots adrift of the runaway leader and defending champion Tyrrell Hatton - who Fisher finished second to 12 months ago - but he is just three swings back of second placed Gregory Bourdy so can legitimately hope for another second on Sunday. On Saturday he managed just five pars in a rollercoaster round and three of them came in the first four holes (at 10, 11 and 13 with a birdie at 12). When a brace of bogeys followed at 14 and 15 he had slim hopes of a top five finish, but he closed the back nine with birdies at 17 and 18. However he gave the shots back immediately at 1 and 2 before he closed the front nine on a runaway birdie-train painting 3, 4, 6, 7, 8 and 9 red.
Oct 7 - 1:58 PM

Ross Fisher styled a 3-under-par 31-36=67 during round one of the World Golf Championships-Bridgestone Invitational, grabbing a spot inside the top 10 as play starts to wind down for the day.

The Englishman split just five (of 14) fairways but used strong iron play to pelt 14 greens. He opened on the back nine and failed to record a birdie in his first 10 holes. Fisher missed three birdie attempts from 12-to-15 feet in that stretch of holes, but overall didn't have many good looks. From there, though, he picked up the pace, circling an eagle at the par-5 second (25'5") and then birdied the fifth and ninth holes, as well. World No. 40 hasn't finished better than 43rd here in three tries, but this is his first time playing Firestone CC since 2010.

Ross Fisher produced his best golf of the week at Royal Birkdale, shooting 4-under-par 31-35=66 on day three of the 146th Open to finish at 2-under 208 and in a tie for 11th.

That's a move of 13 spots up the leaderboard, putting the Englishman nine behind leader Jordan Spieth but just three off third spot. In admittedly easier conditions, Fisher found 14 greens in regulation today, six more than in his Friday 72, and took 29 putts. He split eight (of 14) fairways. The five-time European Tour winner didn't manage a front-nine birdie over the first two days but scribbled four red numbers (1, 3, 5 and 8) over that same stretch today with a sole bogey coming at 4. He added birdies at 15 and 16 before a slightly disappointing walk-off square. This has been an excellent season so far for Fisher and he looks in ideal place to beat his previous Open best of T13 in 2009.
Jul 22 - 3:32 PM

Ross Fisher splashed seven birdies in a second-round 4-under-par 35-32=67 at the Open de France Friday, advancing 28 spots on the live leaderboard to T4 and three off leader Adrian Otaegui.

Fisher's adventurous lap which took him to 5-under 137 started bogey-birdie-bogey before he got into red figures for the day with gains at 5 and 6. After a run of four pars the rollercoaster continued with a birdie-bogey-birdie run from Nos. 11-13 before he added par breakers at 16 and 18 to complete a strong day's work. Fisher had struggled previously at Le Golf National but recorded his best finish last year when T22 and he's now in place to beat that and hopefully much more over the final 36 holes.
Jun 30 - 8:53 AM

Ross Fisher last teed it up at the U.S. Open in 2010; after some excellent play this year, he'll make his return to the tournament at Erin Hills this week.

Fisher missed the cut at Pebble Beach seven years ago and also on his U.S. Open debut at Torrey Pines in 2008. But at Bethpage Black in the 2009 edition, the Englishman took solo fifth, his best result in 24 starts in the majors. Fisher was T41 at the Masters this year after squeezing into the field courtesy of T3 at the WGC-Mexico and T5 at the WGC-Dell Match Play taking him into the world's top 50 again. He's currently 44th although still some way from his peak of 17th. He's continued his solid play in recent weeks with T9 in the BMW PGA Championship at Wentworth and T22 at Memorial. His high ball flight is an asset on American courses and Erin Hills could suit him. Fisher tees off Thursday (1st tee) at 08:02 local CDT in the familiar company of Lee Westwood and Graeme McDowell.

A 72nd hole three-putt cost Ross Fisher a place in the play-off at the Shenzhen International; his final lap of 4-under-par 33-35=68 left him one short on 15-under 273 at Genzon GC.

The Englishman had tracked the leader Bernd Wiesberger in some style throughout most of the last day despite making bogey at the first. He responded with birdies at 3, 6, 7, 8, 10 and 13 to move right into contention for the title. Another dropped shot at 15 was retrieved at the 17th and when he found the putting surface of 18 he needed a two-putt to tie the clubhouse lead of Tommy Fleetwood, but the first putt came up 8'0" short and the second refused to drop. His consolation is a fourth finish of T3 or better in his last 12 strokeplay starts.
Apr 23 - 5:51 AM

Ross Fisher continued his resurgence in form, thrashing a bogey-free 7-under-par 33-32=65 in round two of the Shenzhen International in China to post 9-under 136 and vaulting up to T2 on the halfway leaderboard.

That’s four swings behind Bernd Wiesberger but puts the Englishman back in the game after his modest 71 in round one. Fisher had started his second lap of Genzon GC on Friday, ticking 1 and 6 before the weather delays caught up with him. He resumed early Saturday and made his big charge with birdies at 9, 11, 12 and 13. After three pars, Fisher made a final gain of the round at the par-5 17th, a hole he’d bogeyed in round one. His 65 is the joint-lowest round of the week so far and beats his best 18 at Genzon by three strokes. The 36-year-old sits seventh in the Race to Dubai after banking big cheques at the WGC-Dell Match Play (T5) and WGC-Mexico Championship (T3) last month.
Apr 22 - 3:28 AM

Ross Fisher makes his first visit in five years to Augusta National Golf Club when he competes in the 81st Masters.

Few entrants this week will be as buoyant as the Englishman who timed his run into the world top 50 to perfection, logging T3 in the WGC Mexico Championship then reaching the quarter finals of the WGC World Match Play to earn his invite and a fifth appearance at ANGC. His record there thus far is ordinary: 3-for-4 with a best of T15 in 2011. He’s often made bright starts (two 69s, one 71; all three leaving him T14 or better), but has only once broken 76 in round two. He ranked second for Greens in Regulation on debut in 2009 and sixth in 2012, but averaging 31.6 putts per round hurts his cause. He rediscovered close to his best form last season and has proved it’s not disappeared, but it's a concern that his last win was in March 2014 (Tshwane Open).

47-seed Ross Fisher eliminated 13-seed Bubba Watson 4-and-3 in Round of 16 play at the World Golf Championships-Dell Technologies Match Play and will face 54-seed Hideto Tanihara in quarterfinal action later today. UPDATE: Fisher lost to Tanihara 4-and-2 and departs with a 3-2-0 record and T5, his fifth top 10 in 18 WGCs overall, and with 367 non-member FedExCup points, becomes eligible for Special Temporary Membership for the remainder of the season.

Watson was the Group 13 winner and departs with a 2-1-1 record. Fisher prevailed in Group 4 with a 2-1-0 record, advancing in a 2-man playoff. Watson took the early 1 UP lead with birdie-3 at hole 1, but the Englishman leveled it with a birdie-3 of his own at 2 (from 13'7"). Fisher won the third (with par), lost the fifth to Watson's second birdie from inside of 10 feet, and went 1 DOWN with bogey-4 at 7. Fisher squared the match at eight (par) and went 1 UP thru nine with another par 4, and never relinquished the lead from there. He went 2 UP with birdie-2 at 11 (21-footer from the fringe), went 3 UP with par at the 13th, and then knocked out Watson with a hole-out 3 from a greenside bunker at the par-4 15th.
Mar 25 - 12:56 PM

A strong start helped Ross Fisher overwhelm Jim Furyk 4-and-2; he then took down Louis Oosthuizen in a play-off to confirm his progress into the knockout stages of the World Golf Championship-Dell Technologies Match Play.

The Englishman put all sorts of pressure on his round three opponent by making birdie at 1 and 2, and from that point the trend for the day was set. Furyk ticked 4 and 9, but he made bogey at 5 and 8 before losing the 6th to a Fisher birdie so found himself 3-down at the turn. A Furyk birdie at 13 hinted at a comeback, but he bogeyed the next and Fisher’s birdie at 16 sealed the deal. In the play off Fisher dialled in a 159-yard approach to 14’9" at the 2nd and drained the birdie putt to make progress. He’ll need to beat Bubba Watson if he is to reach the quarter finals.
Mar 24 - 5:02 PM

Ross Fisher kept his hopes alive at this week's World Golf Championships-Dell Technologies Match Play, delivering a 2-and-1 win over Hideki Matsuyama in round two, earning his first point of the week.

Fisher raced out to an early lead today, but it was all thanks to poor play from his opponent. Matsuyama swallowed four bogeys over his opening 12 holes without a single birdie on his card. The Englishman could have cemented this win much earlier, but he didn't bring his best stuff, either. On the day, Fisher circled five birdies but he also squared four bogeys and a double. With this win, Fisher is now tied with Louis Ooshtuizen in Group 4, both are half a point behind Furyk, with Furyk and Fisher set to go mano a mano in Round 3.
