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.

Ross Fisher made a late error on his way to posting a level-par second round of 35-37=72 at the Nedbank Golf Challenge; he's T8 at halfway on 4-under 140, four behind the leader Alex Noren.

The Englishman was among a pack of five others tied for second on 6-under with one hole to play, but he found trouble and could only limp to a double bogey-6. It was a poor end to an up and down day which had begun with a birdie-4 at the par-five 2nd, only to shortly follow it with back-to-back bogeys at 5 and 6. No matter, he made perfect amends with consecutive birdies at 8, 9 and 10. But he slipped up again at the 12th before making a final birdie of the day at 17. Three of his four previous visits to the Gary Player Country Club have reaped top five finishes and a fourth remains a possibility if he puts the 36th hole out of his head.

Ross Fisher painted a 4-under-par 33-35=68 to grab a share of the first round lead in the Nedbank Golf Challenge at Gary Player Country Club - the second event in the European Tour's Final Series.

The Englishman entered the week as one of the favorites courtesy of a superb course record and three top six finishes in his last four starts; he duly backed up that reputation with a strong opening circuit of the Player-design in Sun City. For 16 holes he was flawless and unconcerned by fairways that are narrower than in previous years. He bagged birdies at the 2nd, 4th, 8th and 10th to join the leaders, before appearing to cede the Thursday night advantage with a bogey at No. 17, but he promptly reduced the 502-yard par-four 18th hole to just three swings for a closing par breaker. It is the fourth time in five visits to the course that he has opening with a sub-70 score and the second time he has held the lead, although in 2014 he was in sole possession prior to finishing the week second. He shares the lead with Jeunghun Wang and Felipe Aguilar, with a group of seven (including Henrik Stenson) on shot behind.

Ross Fisher will tee it up in the Nedbank Golf Challenge at Sun City knowing his South African log book is an impressive one.

The Englishman rocks up to a favored venue fresh from two seconds (at the European Open and Alfred Dunhill Links Championship) and a T6 (at the WGC-HSBC Champions) in his last four starts. His record at the Gary Player Country Club is no one-off either. He was second behind Danny Willett in 2014, third in 2009 and fifth in 2010. Currently playing his 11th consecutive year on Tour he is 16th in the Race to Dubai, primed to finish top 20 for a third year on the bounce (slightly odd that - you instinctively feel he's been in a slump). Beyond this course he has a strong record in the country: 15-for-16 with 12 top 25s including a win in the 2014 Tshwane Open.

Ross Fisher maintained his steady pace with a 4-under-par 34-34=68 during the final round of the World Golf Championships-HSBC Champions, closing the week on 14-under 274, good for a share of sixth place.

The Englishman had no troubles racking up birdies at Sheshan International (22 birdies plus an eagle on the week) but he couldn't avoid the bogeys. The Bogeyman struck 10 times by week's end. Other than the winner Hideki Matsuyama, Fisher was the only golfer in the field to post four sub-70 rounds this week (69→68→69→68). The 35-year-old has now posted top 30s in all four HSBC appearances including back-to-back top 10s.

Ross Fisher set himself up for another weekend title bid at the WGC-HSBC Champions in China after coming on strong late and hoisting up a 4-under-par 36-32=68 in Friday's second round.

At 7-under 137, the Englishman will go into the final 36 holes at Sheshan International GC in T7, that's six behind three-shot leader Hideki Matsuyama. That gap looked like being much bigger when Fisher started out with bogeys at 10 and 12 today. He got back on track with a rush of birdies at 13, 14 and 16 but another dropped shot at 17 meant he hadn't improved his overnight position of 3-under. He changed all that with an impressive second nine, sinking birdie efforts at 2, 3, 7 and 8 to climb back inside the top 10. Fisher was a popular pick with gamers this week having twice finished in the top three in this event. He's also finished runner-up in two of his last three European Tour starts. The five-time ET winner hasn't had his very best stuff from tee to green so far (T38 Driving Accuracy, T24 Greens In Regulation) but he's 8th in Putts Per GIR. He carded 65-68 on the weekend when third here last year.

Ross Fisher went bogey-free in the final round of the Alfred Dunhill Links Championship, but his 5-under-par 34-33=67 was not good enough to catch Tyrrell Hatton so ended the week in second for a second event running.

The Englishman's Sunday stroll around St. Andrews was impressive, giving him a total for the week of 19-under 271, but he was always struggling to catch the eventual winner. Having lost to Alex Levy in extra holes on his last outing at the Porsche European Open it is another lucrative but frustrating near-miss for Fisher, who now has four top six finishes in the 2016 season. It also counts as his second near miss at The Home of Golf, having been defeated in a play-off in 2008. He was becalmed early in the final round, pegging five straight pars before ticking back-to-back red at 6 and 7. There were no errors, but he could only make three back nine par breakers, at 10, 15 and 18. He was T2 with Richard Sterne, four adrift of Hatton.

Ross Fisher plotted his way round the devilish Carnoustie to remain in contention at the Alfred Dunhill Links Championship, carding 3-under-par 35-34=69 for a 54-hole total of 14-under 202 which had him alone in second.

The Englishman opened his week on the easier Kingsbarns and Old Course so would have been ready to maintain his position rather than go low for a third time and he'll be satisfied with the job. He circled 2 and 6, and squared 3, on the outward nine; then a burst of three birdies in four holes at 12, 13 and 15 was slightly marred by a bogey at No. 16. He'll head into the final round three blows behind the leader Tyrrell Hatton, aware that his fellow Englishman is yet to win on tour so may feel the pressure. Fisher lost a play-off in his last start and also suffered that fate when T2 in this event in 2008.

With seven more birdies in his second round at St. Andrews on Friday, Ross Fisher posted a 4-under-par 32-36=68 for a halfway total of 11-under 133 at the Alfred Dunhill Links Championship, good enough for a one-shot lead over Joakim Lagergren.

Lagergren matched Fisher's 68 to hit 10-under while it's a further stroke back to first-round leader Alex Noren who had to settle for a 71 at Kingsbarns. After yesterday's 65 at Kingsbarns, Fisher cashed in on the early scoring opportunities at the Old Course with gains at 2, 5, 7 and 8. In trickier conditions on the back nine, he oscillated between birdies and bogeys, scribbling down three of each over the first eight holes before signing off with a par. Despite the blips, that's two excellent days for the Englishman and keeps him on track to go one better than the second place he managed in this tournament in 2008. Fisher was also runner-up at the Porsche European Open on his latest European Tour start so his performance so far is no surprise. He continues his bid at Carnoustie on Saturday before returning to St. Andrews for Sunday's climax.

Ross Fisher blitzed the front nine at Kingsbarns - his back nine - to score 7-under-par 35-30=65 in round one of the Alfred Dunhill Links Championship.

The Englishman, a runner-up in this event in 2008 and on his last start two weeksa go (both times after extra holes), made a sedate start with eight pars and one birdie (at 16). When he made two more pars at 1 and 2 there seemed little hope of him getting to within one shot of the leader Alex Noren's mark of 8-under, but Fisher suddenly caught fire. He made eagle-3 at the third, added birdie-3 at the fourth, back-to-back par breakers at 6 and 7, then made a red-4 at the 9th. He'll play his second round on The Old Course in St. Andrews.

Englishman Ross Fisher hunted down the leader Alex Levy with a final round of 7-under-par 31-33=64, but came up short in the play-off at the Porsche European Open at Golf Resort Bad Griesbach.

The Englishman posted 19-under 194 after his birdie putt on the final green slipped over the edge of the hole and then watched Levy hole from 8-feet to force a play-off. Alas Fisher made two pars in the extra holes whilst Levy made birdie at the second time of asking. But Fisher had played the better golf all day, indeed he was flawless in chasing the Frenchman. He opened with birdies at 1 and 3, then added a hat-trick at 8, 9 and 10, before a brace at 15 and 16 put the long time leader under pressure. In the final round Fisher found 17 greens in regulation and he ended the week 8-for-9 in Scrambling. The result is his best of the year, bettering his T6 at both the Open de Espana and Nordea Masters.
