Ross Fisher makes a ninth visit to the Omega Dubai Desert Classic hoping he can recapture some of his early magic there.
The Englishman will want to halt what has become something of a deteriorating relationship with the Emirates GC. It all started so well on debut, when a 65-65 start gave him the halfway lead. He failed to maintain the pace but a T5 was a good return for him in 2007. In each of his next four visits he made the top 15, without ever getting back in the top five. Then in his last three visits the form has deserted him, finishing T66-MC-T20. He opened the season with T15 in the Nedbank and T35 two weeks ago in Abu Dhabi. Any positive vibes may come from either the 67 he closed with in Abu Dhabi or the 66 he shot in round four 12 months ago, a reminder perhaps of the good times in Dubai. Feb 2 - 5:08 AM

England's Ross Fisher and Sweden's Kristoffer Broberg might not strike observers as an obvious pairing, but they had synergy in their EurAsia Cup opening day 6&4 thrashing of Korea's K.T.Kim and Thailand's Prayad Marksaeng.

The Asian duo were 2-under for the 14 holes they played, but it was no match for the Euros, who were 8-under between them. Broberg made three par breakers whilst Fisher, a star of the 2010 Ryder Cup, made five including the birdie-3 on the 14th which confirmed victory and allowed their punchdrunk opponents to get out of the ring. Of his selection process European captain Darren Clarke said: "I know them well and I like to think I know what makes them tick. If I have an idea of who each guy will play with, and that's backed up by the stats then that's quite good I reckon." In day one's fourballs his policy worked as Clarke's team took a 4.5-1.5 lead.

Ross Fisher had to settle for a 1-under-par 33-38=71 in Friday's second round at the BMW Masters in China after dropping three shots in his final five holes.

The Englishman looked as if he could challenge the lead after hitting 10-under with a birdie at 13 but he squared bogeys at 14, 15 and 18 to fall back to 7-under 137 at the midpoint. That's five swings behind halfway pacesetter Lucas Bjerregaard. Fisher hit all 18 greens in regulation in Thursday's 66 and found another 15 in the right number today. He's taken 63 putts so far and will need to sharpen up on the greens this weekend.

Building on his T3 in last week's WGC-HSBC Champions, Ross Fisher opened his bid for victory in the BMW Masters with a 6-under-par 32-34=66.

Notably, Fisher hit all 18 greens in regulation, the achievement slightly tempered by two of the other top five managing the same feat and leader Sergio Garcia racking up 17. Fisher's bogey-free jaunt around Lake Malaren started with birdies at 10, 13, 14 and 18 on his opening nine and, after a run of seven straight pars, the Englishman produced a closing pair at 8 and 9. He split 11 (of 14) fairways and took 31 putts. After another strong day in China, Fisher is T4 on the leaderboard and just two shots behind Garcia.

Ross Fisher closed with a 4-under-par 33-35=68 to finish T3 on 17-under 271 at the HSBC-Champions in Shanghai, China.

The title proved out of reach for the Englishman but this is will be a serious boost for his Race to Dubai earnings and he's predicted to move into the top 15. Fisher was one of just four players to shoot four rounds in the 60s this week and he completed his set with a lap of Sheshan International Golf Club featuring five birdies and a single bogey. He circled red at 2, 3, 8 and 10 to keep the trophy in his sights but a bogey-5 at 15 effectively killed his hopes of catching winner Russell Knox. A final birdie at 17 lifted him back into the top three and gave the 34-year-old his best finish since a second place at the Nedbank Golf Challenge last December.

With a walk-off birdie at 18, Ross Fisher posted a 7-under-par 34-31=65 and moved into title contention after 54 holes of the WGC-HSBC Champions in China.

The Englishman currently shares the clubhouse lead with Jordan Spieth on 13-under 203 although four players still out on the course are at -15. Nevertheless, Fisher is very much part of the conversation now after an eagle and six birdies in his afternoon lap of Sheshan International Golf Club. He started his move with three straight par breakers from the second hole before giving one back at the sixth. Fisher birdied 11 and 12 before adding an eagle-3 at the 563-yard par-5 14th. After laying up at 18, a wedge to tap-in range polished off an excellent 65. The 34-year-old split 12 (of 14) fairways and hit 15 greens in regulation.

Ross Fisher is 20th on the Race To Dubai heading into this week's Turkish Airlines Open at the Montgomerie Maxx Royal.

Making the Final Series hasn't been a problem for Fisher since he banked a cheque for 576,650 Euro after finishing runner-up in the season-opening Nedbank Golf Challenge but that was back in December. He's not hit the same heights since and his season has really tailed off over the last few months with six missed cuts in his last seven starts. In the middle of that run he did take T5 in the Porsche European Open so the Englishman will hope he can suddenly spark to life again. This could be a good venue as his two previous starts in this event show a T25 last year and a T10 in 2013.

With the joint lowest round of the day, Ross Fisher has a share of the halfway clubhouse lead in the Porsche European Open at Golf Resort Bad Griesbach.

The Englishman sprinkled seven birdies in a 6-under-par 32-33=65 on Friday to join Charl Schwartzel and Graeme Storm on 10-under 132 at the midpoint. Fisher opened his birdie account at the 230-yard par-3 2nd hole and made further gains at 3, 8, 10, 12, 14 and 16. He swallowed his only bogey of the round at 15. For the second day running, he hit 14 greens in regulation and was 3-for-4 in scrambling. Fisher is actually looking for his second win in this tournament. He won it at the London Club in England in 2008, the year before it was dropped from the European Tour schedule. It's being played in Germany for the first time this week.

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.

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.
