Ross Fisher missed the cut in the 2010 PGA Championship at Whistling Straits but will have another crack at the Wisconsin venue this week.
The Englishman shot 78-74 five years ago and has missed the cut three times out of five at the year's final major. He'll attempt to improve his best finish of T19 at Hazeltine (2009) in the company of Finland's Mikko Ilonen and American J.B. Holmes. That trio will start out at 2.20pm from the 10th tee on Thursday. Fisher slots in at 14th on the Race To Dubai and enjoyed good results recently at the BMW International Open (T11) and Scottish Open (T7). He had to settle for T68 in the Open Championship at St. Andrews. Aug 10 - 1:18 PM

Ross Fisher is a healthy 11th in the Race To Dubai heading into this week's Aberdeen Asset Management Scottish Open.

That position is a little misleading as over 65% of his earnings this season came via a second place in the Nedbank Golf Challenge back in December. Since then, the Englishman has been steady rather than spectacular and a T11 in the BMW International Open in Germany on his last start was Fisher's best result since January. The 34-year-old will aim to build on that at Gullane GC where he'll contest this event for the 10th time. He owns five top 25s in this tournament, with a pair of top 10s at Loch Lomond in 2009-2010 his best finishes.

A return to one of his favorite courses gives Ross Fisher the opportunity to get back into title contention again.

Fisher is heading to Golfclub München Eichenried to contest the BMW International Open but ahead of his annual trip to Germany the Englishman is struggling to change gears. In his last 10 events, Fisher has had eight finishes between T15 and T35, meaning he's failed to record a top 10 since January's Abu Dhabi Golf Championship. This could be the perfect venue for that to change as the 34-year-old has made the top 20 in each of his last four visits. That includes a second place in 2010 and a T9 in 2011. He's broken par at Golfclub München Eichenried in 16 of his last 17 rounds.

Ross Fisher owns one of the strongest tournament records in the field going into the latest edition of the Dubai Duty Free Irish Open.

Fisher won the event at Killarney in 2009 and has finished 17-10-22-8 in four subsequent starts. Overall, he's made the top 25 in seven of his nine appearances and twice shot a 65 on his closing lap. The Englishman will hope he can find some spark on his first start at Royal County Down as his latest form has been modest. He's not managed a top 10 since January and missed the cut at last week's BMW PGA Championship at Wentworth where he's been a member since a boy.

England's Ross Fisher will have a seventh crack at the Volvo China Open this week.

His debut in the event was a big success as he took fourth place in 2005 but it's been a struggle since with three missed cuts in the last four. Fisher does boast some fine form in the region, though, and a top 15 at last week's Shenzhen International added to a second place in last November's BMW Masters. He's played twice at this week's course, Tomson Shanghai Pudong GC, but without much success. It previously played host to the BMW Asian Open, with Fisher missing the cut in 2007 and finishing T42 the following year.

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.
Mar 10 - 5:27 PM

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.
Mar 7 - 1:45 PM

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.
Mar 3 - 8:31 AM

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.
Jan 18 - 9:55 AM

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."
