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.

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).
Apr 4 - 5:37 AM

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.
Mar 23 - 3:06 PM

Ross Fisher will hope to prompt memories of his excellent debut in the WGC-Dell Technologies Match Play when he competes in this year's renewal at Austin Country Club.

Back in 2009 the Englishman was at the height of his career. A fourth placed finish in this event kick-started the season, he added a second at the BMW PGA Championship, threatened to win both the U.S. and British Opens, then ended with victory in the Volvo World Match Play. But having gone 4-2 in this event that year his two subsequent visits have reaped just 1-2 and this is his first return since 2011. His overall singles match play record is only 10-9-2, but his form is more interesting. He opened the Desert Swing with T19 in the HSBC Abu Dhabi Championship before missing the weekend in both Qatar and Dubai. He then bounced back in great style when smoothing a T3 in the WGC Mexico Championship on his last outing, a week in which only one man (Justin Thomas) topped his tally of 23 birdies. In Group 4 he'll take on Hideki Matsuyama, Louis Oosthuizen and Jim Furyk.
Mar 20 - 12:11 PM

First-round co-leader and World No. 72 Ross Fisher birdied his final three holes en route to a 6-under-par 33-32=65 in the final round of the World Golf Championships-Mexico Championship to reach 12-under 272, tying the low round of the day with Brandt Snedeker and good for the 72-hole clubhouse lead. UPDATE: With play completed, Fisher finished in a two-way T3, two back of champion Dustin Johnson.

After opening in 67-68-72, the 36-year-old began on 6-under (T14), six adrift of 54-hole leader Justin Thomas. He striped 10 (of 14) fairways and hit 13 greens in regulation, gaining 2.727 strokes approaching-the-green and 2.414 strokes with the flat stick. The Englishman, a 5-time winner on the European Tour, most recently at the 2014 Tshwane Open, squared three bogeys but camouflaged them with nine birdies at Nos. 3, 4, 6, 9, 11, 12 and then finished with three straight at 16-18. This was his 63rd career start on the PGA TOUR, 17th WGC, and sixth overall top 10, right on a previous-best T3 at the 2016 WGC-HSBC Champions.
Mar 5 - 5:17 PM

Ross Fisher pieced together a 3-under-par 35-33=68 during the second round of the World Golf Championships-Mexico Championship, resulting in a 7-under 135 after two days of action, finding himself inside the top 3 on the live leaderboard as play winds down on Friday.

The Englishman found just seven (of 14) fairways but still managed 14 greens in regulation. His flat stick was up-and-down as he splashed home four putts from outside six feet but also three-jacked for bogey at the par-3 17th. The highlight was a 22'7" birdie bomb at the par-4 first hole, which is a big reason he gained 2.258 strokes putting at the time of his signing. On the week, Fisher currently ranks first in strokes gained putting. The Englishman currently shares the clubhouse lead with Phil Mickelson but Rory McIlroy is two strokes clear of them as he plays the 18th hole. If Fisher maintains his T2 on the leaderboard, it will be his best positioning after R2 on the PGA TOUR, previously T4 at the 2013 Wyndham Championship, an event he'd finish T52 by week's end.
Mar 3 - 6:31 PM

Ross Fisher feasted on Club de Golf Chapultepec in round one of the World Golf Championships-Mexico Championship, walking away with a 4-under-par 33-34=67 to grab an early piece of the clubhouse lead with play still in progress.

The Englishman kicked off his week with birdies at 2, 5, and 7 to grab an early lead before wasting one at the par-4 ninth. He bounced back with a birdie at the par-4 11th and saved the best for last when he walked off with a 22-foot birdie bomb at the par-4 18th. It was his second putt converted from outside 20 feet, gaining 2.916 strokes putting at the time of his card signing. The closing birdie gave him a share of the early lead with Jimmy Walker but many golfers are still out on the course. Regardless of where he ends up by day's end, Fisher is off to a great start as he plays his 17th WGC event. If he does co-lead after day one it would be the second time he's done so on the PGA TOUR (2013 Wyndham Championship).
Mar 2 - 5:18 PM

World No. 72 Ross Fisher is in Mexico City for the inaugural World Golf Championships-Mexico Championship and arrives off a T19 in Abu Dhabi and back-to-back missed cuts, including at the Maybank Championship in his most recent start three weeks ago.

The 36-year-old is making his 17th start in a WGC event with three top 10s and a best of T3 at the 2016 HSBC Champions. Back in October, he backed up the T3 in Shanghai with T6 on rounds of 69-68-69-68. The Englishman is a 5-time winner on the European Tour in 286 career events, most recently at the 2014 Tshwane Open (South Africa). He finished 20th in the Race to Dubai standings last season going 22-for-26 with five top 10s, including a T2 (Dunhill Links) and P2 at the Porsche European Open in late-September -- reduced to 54 holes.
Mar 1 - 1:04 PM

Ross Fisher made a late error on his way to posting a level-par second round of 35-37=72 at the Nedbank Golf Challenge; he's T8 at halfway on 4-under 140, four behind the leader Alex Noren.

The Englishman was among a pack of five others tied for second on 6-under with one hole to play, but he found trouble and could only limp to a double bogey-6. It was a poor end to an up and down day which had begun with a birdie-4 at the par-five 2nd, only to shortly follow it with back-to-back bogeys at 5 and 6. No matter, he made perfect amends with consecutive birdies at 8, 9 and 10. But he slipped up again at the 12th before making a final birdie of the day at 17. Three of his four previous visits to the Gary Player Country Club have reaped top five finishes and a fourth remains a possibility if he puts the 36th hole out of his head.

Ross Fisher painted a 4-under-par 33-35=68 to grab a share of the first round lead in the Nedbank Golf Challenge at Gary Player Country Club - the second event in the European Tour's Final Series.

The Englishman entered the week as one of the favorites courtesy of a superb course record and three top six finishes in his last four starts; he duly backed up that reputation with a strong opening circuit of the Player-design in Sun City. For 16 holes he was flawless and unconcerned by fairways that are narrower than in previous years. He bagged birdies at the 2nd, 4th, 8th and 10th to join the leaders, before appearing to cede the Thursday night advantage with a bogey at No. 17, but he promptly reduced the 502-yard par-four 18th hole to just three swings for a closing par breaker. It is the fourth time in five visits to the course that he has opening with a sub-70 score and the second time he has held the lead, although in 2014 he was in sole possession prior to finishing the week second. He shares the lead with Jeunghun Wang and Felipe Aguilar, with a group of seven (including Henrik Stenson) on shot behind.

Ross Fisher will tee it up in the Nedbank Golf Challenge at Sun City knowing his South African log book is an impressive one.

The Englishman rocks up to a favored venue fresh from two seconds (at the European Open and Alfred Dunhill Links Championship) and a T6 (at the WGC-HSBC Champions) in his last four starts. His record at the Gary Player Country Club is no one-off either. He was second behind Danny Willett in 2014, third in 2009 and fifth in 2010. Currently playing his 11th consecutive year on Tour he is 16th in the Race to Dubai, primed to finish top 20 for a third year on the bounce (slightly odd that - you instinctively feel he's been in a slump). Beyond this course he has a strong record in the country: 15-for-16 with 12 top 25s including a win in the 2014 Tshwane Open.

Ross Fisher maintained his steady pace with a 4-under-par 34-34=68 during the final round of the World Golf Championships-HSBC Champions, closing the week on 14-under 274, good for a share of sixth place.

The Englishman had no troubles racking up birdies at Sheshan International (22 birdies plus an eagle on the week) but he couldn't avoid the bogeys. The Bogeyman struck 10 times by week's end. Other than the winner Hideki Matsuyama, Fisher was the only golfer in the field to post four sub-70 rounds this week (69→68→69→68). The 35-year-old has now posted top 30s in all four HSBC appearances including back-to-back top 10s.
