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. Jul 28 - 2:13 PM

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.

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.

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.
Mar 2 - 7:01 PM

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.

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.

Building on his T3 in last week's WGC-HSBC Champions, Ross Fisher opened his bid for victory in the BMW Masters with a 6-under-par 32-34=66.

Notably, Fisher hit all 18 greens in regulation, the achievement slightly tempered by two of the other top five managing the same feat and leader Sergio Garcia racking up 17. Fisher's bogey-free jaunt around Lake Malaren started with birdies at 10, 13, 14 and 18 on his opening nine and, after a run of seven straight pars, the Englishman produced a closing pair at 8 and 9. He split 11 (of 14) fairways and took 31 putts. After another strong day in China, Fisher is T4 on the leaderboard and just two shots behind Garcia.

Ross Fisher closed with a 4-under-par 33-35=68 to finish T3 on 17-under 271 at the HSBC-Champions in Shanghai, China.

The title proved out of reach for the Englishman but this is will be a serious boost for his Race to Dubai earnings and he's predicted to move into the top 15. Fisher was one of just four players to shoot four rounds in the 60s this week and he completed his set with a lap of Sheshan International Golf Club featuring five birdies and a single bogey. He circled red at 2, 3, 8 and 10 to keep the trophy in his sights but a bogey-5 at 15 effectively killed his hopes of catching winner Russell Knox. A final birdie at 17 lifted him back into the top three and gave the 34-year-old his best finish since a second place at the Nedbank Golf Challenge last December.

With a walk-off birdie at 18, Ross Fisher posted a 7-under-par 34-31=65 and moved into title contention after 54 holes of the WGC-HSBC Champions in China.

The Englishman currently shares the clubhouse lead with Jordan Spieth on 13-under 203 although four players still out on the course are at -15. Nevertheless, Fisher is very much part of the conversation now after an eagle and six birdies in his afternoon lap of Sheshan International Golf Club. He started his move with three straight par breakers from the second hole before giving one back at the sixth. Fisher birdied 11 and 12 before adding an eagle-3 at the 563-yard par-5 14th. After laying up at 18, a wedge to tap-in range polished off an excellent 65. The 34-year-old split 12 (of 14) fairways and hit 15 greens in regulation.

Ross Fisher is 20th on the Race To Dubai heading into this week's Turkish Airlines Open at the Montgomerie Maxx Royal.

Making the Final Series hasn't been a problem for Fisher since he banked a cheque for 576,650 Euro after finishing runner-up in the season-opening Nedbank Golf Challenge but that was back in December. He's not hit the same heights since and his season has really tailed off over the last few months with six missed cuts in his last seven starts. In the middle of that run he did take T5 in the Porsche European Open so the Englishman will hope he can suddenly spark to life again. This could be a good venue as his two previous starts in this event show a T25 last year and a T10 in 2013.

With the joint lowest round of the day, Ross Fisher has a share of the halfway clubhouse lead in the Porsche European Open at Golf Resort Bad Griesbach.

The Englishman sprinkled seven birdies in a 6-under-par 32-33=65 on Friday to join Charl Schwartzel and Graeme Storm on 10-under 132 at the midpoint. Fisher opened his birdie account at the 230-yard par-3 2nd hole and made further gains at 3, 8, 10, 12, 14 and 16. He swallowed his only bogey of the round at 15. For the second day running, he hit 14 greens in regulation and was 3-for-4 in scrambling. Fisher is actually looking for his second win in this tournament. He won it at the London Club in England in 2008, the year before it was dropped from the European Tour schedule. It's being played in Germany for the first time this week.
