After playing the Masters for the first time in five years when teeing it up at Augusta National Golf Club 12 months ago, Ross Fisher is again in the field this week.
The Englishman found his reacquaintance tricky at first after opening with a 76 but squeezed into the weekend and closed with a 1-under 71 to take T41. That makes him 4-for-5 at the year's first major, his best finish coming in 2011 when tied 15th. Fisher had a hot run of three second places in six European Tour starts either side of the Christmas break but since finishing runner-up in Abu Dhabi in January he's gone a little flat. The World No. 36 was T45 in Dubai, T46 at the WGC-Mexico, missed the cut in the Valspar and lost two out of three at the WGC-Dell Match Play. He enjoys this venue but it's worth nothing that Fisher hasn't managed anything better than a top 40 in the last 14 majors he's played, a run stretching back seven years. Apr 4 - 7:04 AM

Will Ross Fisher maintain his recent trend of fine golf in the World Golf Championship at this week's Dell Technologies Match Play hosted by Austin Country Club?

Between this event in 2011 and early 2015 Fisher went missing in his career and therefore in WGC events. Prior to that, in part one of his record book, he managed one top ten in 12 WGC starts; in part two he has ticked four in nine. Only one of those results was in this event, when reaching the last eight last year, but he has previous. The highlight of that first period? When he was fourth at Dove Mountain in 2009. Twelve months ago he downed Jim Furyk and Hideki Matsuyama in the group stage, suffering defeat against Louis Oosthuizen yet progressing. He thumped Bubba Watson 4-and-3 in the round of 16 and then Hideto Tanihara took him down in the quarter finals. He has Yuta Ikeda as opposition on Wednesday before completing his Group 16 duties with ties against Matt Kuchar and Zach Johnson.

Ross Fisher will be upbeat when he returns to the World Golf Championships-Mexico Championship at Club de Golf Chapultepec this week.

Back in 2009 Fisher was a WGC World Match Play semi finalist, but in recent years he's been a sneaky fine performer in the WGC strokeplay events too. T3 and T6 in the 2015 and 2016 HSBC Champions was followed by T3 in this event 12 months ago, when closing with a fine 65. Three weeks later he was a quarter finalist in the World Match Play and then later in the year an opening 67 at Firestone had him an early T3 at the Bridgestone Invitational. Seen only twice this term but it's been enough to confirm he's still in the form that saw him notch a pair of second places late in 2017: second again in the Abu Dhabi HSBC Championship then T45 in the Dubai Desert Classic.

Ross Fisher finished second for the third time in six starts despite a final round of 3-under-par 32-37=69 at the Abu Dhabi HSBC Championship; his 20-under 268 total leaving him two shy of Tommy Fleetwood's back nine blitz-inspired tally.

The Englishman must be wondering what he has to do to claim another win. In October he was superb on consecutive Sundays only to be bettered by Tyrrell Hatton both times; this time only a superb final day effort by Fleetwood could trump Fisher. Early in the last lap a 40'0" eagle conversion at the second earned him the solo lead and a 6'0" par breaker at seven (to follow another birdie at No. 4) stretched his advantage to four. By the turn it was three and, after an errant drive at the par-5 10th led to a bogey, it was two. Although he responded with three safe pars, Fleetwood had caught fire and tied the lead as Fisher played 14. At the next Fleetwood repeated to go one clear and, possibly rattled, Fisher three-putted 15 for bogey. The response was superb: birdie-3 at the tough 16th. But he could only close out with two pars for a familiar tale of so near and yet so far.
Jan 21 - 8:11 AM

With a two-putt birdie at 18, Ross Fisher completed a third-round 7-under-par 32-33=65 to move into a tie for top spot with Thomas Pieters on 17-under 199 after 54 holes of the Abu Dhabi HSBC Championship.

The pair are a shot clear of a charging Rory McIlroy, with Matt Fitzpatrick and defending champion Tommy Fleetwood a further stroke in arrears. Taking advantage of the easy conditions again, Fisher flew from the gates with three birdies in his first holes and replied to a lone bogey of the day at 5 with gains at 6 and 8. On the back nine, the World No. 31 added red numbers at 11 and 14 before finding the par-5 closer in two and signing off with an eighth birdie of the day. The 37-year-old will head into the final round looking for his first European Tour win since the 2014 Tshwane Open. Looking to Sunday's closer, Fisher noted: "Yeah, I've heard it's going to be quite windy. I'm hoping the Tour officials will see what the forecast is, set the course up tough, but fair. Looking forward to the challenge and see what happens."
Jan 20 - 7:52 AM

Matching his Thursday score, Ross Fisher compiled a 5-under-par 34-33=67 in round two of the Abu Dhabi HSBC Championship to post 10-under 134 at halfway, good enough for solo second place and two shots behind clubhouse leader Thomas Pieters.

The Englishman has made just a single bogey so far through 36 holes, that blemish coming on his 15th hole of the day, the 6th, when taking five swishes at the 468-yard par 4. He recovered impressively and ended his second lap with a pair of birdies at 8 and 9 to complete his second straight 67. His round had started with an opening birdie at 10 and, after a run of six pars, he hit the gas with red circles at 17, 1 and 3. Fisher has a best of T9 in nine starts at this event so is in great position to beat that this weekend. "Very pleasing," he said later. "I thought today was better than yesterday. Felt like I drove it better today. Yesterday was a little bit scrappy but I missed it in the right spots. Today was another solid day. Hit it well off the tee. Hit some nice iron shots. Holed some putts."
Jan 19 - 3:25 AM

Ross Fisher smoothed a first round 5-under-par 34-33=67 at the Abu Dhabi HSBC Championship which left him T2 and just one behind the clubhouse leader Tommy Fleetwood as the afternoon wave ended their day.

The Englishman seems to have found the secret to the Peter Harradine layout; this was his fifth sub-70 lap in his last six, stretching back to the final round in 2016. The year before that he three times shot circuits in the 60s, yet before that managed it just four times in 18 attempts. On Thursday he plotted an error-free route around Abu Dhabi GC, ticking 2 and 7 on the front nine, then 10, 12 and 16 on the back. "The new driver is working really, really well," he said. "The putter's really been the only thing that can kind of go hot and cold. Putted nicely today. It's not as firm and as fiery as it normally is. Greens definitely a little softer and slower than normal. Rough is still thick but you get lies where you can get a club on it whereas in previous years it's literally just been wedge, hack it out."
Jan 18 - 8:03 AM

Ross Fisher dug out a 1-under-par 36-35=71 in round two of the Nedbank Golf Challenge in Sun City, his 36-hole total of 3-under 141 good enough for T5 on the live leaderboard and four back from pacesetter Victor Dubuisson.

With tough conditions at Gary Player Country Club today, under par scores will move you forward and Fisher bounced back well after playing his first three holes in 2-over via bogeys at 2 and 3. He made his move around the turn with gains at 8, 9 and 10 before trading a circle at 14 with a bogey at 15. Fisher, who is 6th on the Race to Dubai, said: "That's probably one of the toughest rounds around this place I've played. If you make pars, you're going to be picking shots up, especially holes like 11 and 13, and even 18. They are difficult holes. So to come out and come away with 71, I'm very pleased with that." Fisher was runner-up at this course in 2014 and is now in position to go one better this weekend.

Ross Fisher heads to the WGC-HSBC Champions loaded with great course form at Sheshan International GC and exceptional current form too.

To smash a course record 61 and pull up second in one tournament (the Dunhill Links Championship) might be deemed unfortunate, to torch a final round 63 at the Italian Open seven days later, finish second again (to the same man), might be deemed unbelievable. Yet it is not only his golf of the last few weeks which is superb yet head scratching; he has an enigmatic history at this Shanghai venue too. On debut in 2007 he really should have won. A bogey at the last would have been enough, but he chipped through the green into water, made double, lost in a play-off to Phil Mickelson. In 2010 he was T4 after 54 holes before a R4 75; the last two years he has been T3 and T6; we can assume he likes it here. And just in case his recent form needs any further underlining, the stats suggest it is far from one dimensional. He topped the putting ranks in St Andrews, but it was top five Ball-Striking form which drove the success in Italy.

A final round bogey-free 8-under-par 31-32=63 was not quite enough to see Ross Fisher end his victory drought, as he settled for T2 at 20-under 264 in the Italian Open.

Fisher and playing partner Marcus Fraser lit up Golf Club Milano Sunday, the Englishman carding six birdies in the opening 10 holes to climb a jam-packed leaderboard. He made his second two of the round at the par-three 12th hole to move to 19-under before a sand-save birdie at the par-five 14th but then missed four birdie putts coming home. It still looked as though the former Ryder Cup player would earn a playoff but his total was ultimately one shy of Tyrrell Hatton, who Fisher had finished runner-up to one week earlier in Scotland. It’s now three and a half years since the last of five European Tour wins for Fisher, who would’ve looked to improve on an 0-5 playoff record had Hatton not finished off in style to beat him once again. Still, Fisher is now fourth in the Race To Dubai heading towards the end of the season.

Ross Fisher’s magnificent final round of 11-under-par 29-32=61 earned him a third career second placed finish in the Alfred Dunhill Links Championship on the Old Course, St. Andrews on 21-under 267.

For the second year running Fisher came second to Tyrrell Hatton by three shots but, boy, did he put up a fight with a scintillating lap. Three times he lashed the card: four red in a row at 2, 3, 4 and 5, a hat trick at 7, 8 and 9, then another burst of four at 12, 13, 14 and 15. "I just wanted to put in a good performance, and, if I could, repeat last year," he admitted afterwards. "Unfortunately Tyrrell was too far ahead. I managed to give him a little bit to think about coming down the stretch. I putted great today, big boost with courses I like coming up." It’s his eighth top three since his last win in early 2014.

Two-time Alfred Dunhill Links Championship runner-up Ross Fisher might be able to complete an unwanted hat-trick after his wild third round of 5-under-par 35-32=67 at Kingsbarns left him T4 on 10-under 206.

The Englishman is eight shots adrift of the runaway leader and defending champion Tyrrell Hatton - who Fisher finished second to 12 months ago - but he is just three swings back of second placed Gregory Bourdy so can legitimately hope for another second on Sunday. On Saturday he managed just five pars in a rollercoaster round and three of them came in the first four holes (at 10, 11 and 13 with a birdie at 12). When a brace of bogeys followed at 14 and 15 he had slim hopes of a top five finish, but he closed the back nine with birdies at 17 and 18. However he gave the shots back immediately at 1 and 2 before he closed the front nine on a runaway birdie-train painting 3, 4, 6, 7, 8 and 9 red.

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.

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.
