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.
Aug 5 - 9:29 PM

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.
Jul 10 - 6:16 PM

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."
Mar 2 - 12:33 PM

Overnight co-leader Ross Fisher signed for a 1-under-par 35-34=69 in his second round of the Wyndham Championship to reach the midpoint in 7-under 133, four back of the 36-hole clubhouse lead.

A letdown was to be expected by a guy that hasn't flashed any impressive form all year and making his first appearance at Sedgefield. He hit 14 greens in regulation today but converted only three times, all from seven feet and in. He fanned on four chances inside 10 feet, two of which resulting in both of his bogeys -- at Nos. 9 and 10.

Ross Fisher spun a bogey-free, 6-under-par 33-31=64 in his opening round of the Wyndham Championship, good for a piece of the overnight lead with Chris Stroud.

You remember this guy, right? He was a Q School grad but he's played only once in the last nine weeks (MC, Reno-Tahoe) due to commitments on his home circuit in Europe. The Brit arrived in Greensboro ranked 162nd in FedExCup points and 166th in earnings, but with his pedigree, turning his season around in four days isn't a tall ask. In his first competitive round at Sedgefield today, he split 11 (of 14) fairways and hit 16 greens in regulation. Fisher sandwiched an eagle from 6'8" at the par-5 fifth hole with four birdies, including respective conversions from 17'10", 16 feet and 28'6" at the 10th, 18th and seventh holes. He also poured in par saves from 10'9" at 14 and 21'7" at No. 16. At the time he signed his card, his strokes gained-putting split sat north of 4.000. It'll likely stay there, too, as he went out in the day's final threesome off the 10th tee.

Ross Fisher makes his 15th PGA TOUR start of the year at the Wyndham Championship.

Fisher’s experiment with playing both the PGA TOUR and the European Tour has largely been a failure. In his 14 starts on the PGA TOUR, he’s made just six cuts and ranks 162nd in the FedExCup standings. It will be interesting to see if he drops down to the Web.com Tour playoffs, assuming he doesn't make a big move inside the top 125, in an effort to earn a 2013-14 PGA TOUR card, or if he concentrates his efforts fully on the European Tour in 2014.

Ross Fisher signed for a 2-under-par 35-35=70 in a rain-soaked final round of the Wells Fargo Championship to end his week at 4-under 284.

Fisher's best finish of 2013 was a T21 back at Torrey Pines in January until this week's venture at Quail Hollow. His final round featured five birdies to just three bogeys. He will not tee it up in next week's THE PLAYERS, but seems to have found something in his game that will serve him well as soon as he can pick up another tee time.

Ross Fisher comes to the Zurich Classic of New Orleans for the first time having secured paychecks in just half of his 10 starts in 2013.

It’s been a disappointing rookie season for the European Tour veteran, still searching to nab his first top 20. The putter has been the major problem, ranking 179th in strokes gained. It’s not all that uncommon for European regulars to struggle with the quick pace of PGA TOUR greens, as those on their home tour generally run a little slower.

Ross Fisher has been added to the field of this week's Arnold Palmer Invitational.

The PGA TOUR's media department reported this. Fisher was the fifth alternate when the field was released on Friday afternoon. He gained entry as one of the last four sponsor exemptions. The Englishman's rookie season on the PGA TOUR has lacked a highlight. His only top-35 finish was a T21 at Torrey Pines. In his only previous appearances at Bay Hill, he was disqualified for signing an incorrect scorecard after his second round.

Ross Fisher has been added to the published field of this week's Northern Trust Open.

The Brit was the fourth alternate when the field was released on Friday afternoon, but he climbed into the field on a sponsor exemption. He's survived two of his three cuts thus far but sits a mediocre 105th in FedExCup points. This will be the first time he's teed it up at Riviera.

Ross Fisher has been added to the published field of this week's Waste Management Phoenix Open.

Fisher was the third alternate when the field was released on Friday afternoon. He gained entry thanks to three withdrawals today. After a T56 at the Humana Challenge, the Brit popped on the leaderboard at Torrey Pines where he sat T10 at the suspension of play on Sunday night. He'll be making his debut at TPC Scottsdale. UPDATE: While Fisher was added to the field on Monday, he received a sponsor exemption due to Brad Fritsch's top 10 at the Farmers Insurance Open. Fritsch plugs the gap that was originally filled by Fisher.

Ross Fisher followed his opening 66 at the Farmers Insurance Open with a 1-under-par 33-38=71 at Torrey Pines South.

The Englishman made the turn in bogey-free 3-under but suffered three bogeys coming in, and picked up only one more birdie. He hit 14 greens on the day but failed to hole anything longer than his birdie conversion from 8'3" at the fifth. He was the last to conclude 36 holes inside the top 10 at 7-under 137, four strokes in arrears of the lead.

Ross Fisher shot a 6-under-par 34-32=66 in his opening round of the Farmers Insurance Open at Torrey Pines North, finishing one stroke off the clubhouse lead.

Right around the time he was securing his PGA TOUR card at Q School, there were murmurs that the Englishman was going to begin his year on the Desert Swing on the European Tour. Well, his owners are pleased that those rumors were unfounded as he's making his second consecutive start in the U.S. Today, he started on the back and promptly bogeyed the par-4 11th hole. It would stand as his only mistake of the day after which he'd rally for seven birdies, including on each of the four par 5s.

Ross Fisher is a name familiar to many, and he will make his PGA TOUR debut as a rookie member at this week’s Humana Challenge.

Fisher’s international resume is long and successful, contending in majors and playing on a Ryder Cup team. As a 2012 Q School graduate, he is relegated to just one of the guys on the PGA TOUR in 2013. With that, he is subject to reshuffles. That means rather than camp out in Europe until a little later in the year, he’s taking the wise approach to an early start in the United States in hopes of keeping his number solid.
