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. Aug 3 - 1:01 PM

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.

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.

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).
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.
