David Horsey accelerated to the chequered flag at Golf Club Milan in Monza, claiming T5 in the Italian Open on 16-under 268 with a final round of 6-under-par 35-30=65.
The Englishman found a mere 6 of 14 fairways and just 12 greens in regulation in his final round, but 5-from-6 successful scrambles and a mere 25 putts saw him home. He ticked 4 and 7 on the front nine, alongside a bogey at six, before opening the back nine with three straight pars. Suddenly he burst into life: he painted red at 13, 14, 16, 17 and 18 to confirm last week's T4 in the KLM Open was no flash in the pan and vault him 15 places up the leaderboard on the final afternoon. What was a run of the mill season has been transformed in a fortnight and he can now aim for a place in the Finals Series. Sep 18 - 11:54 AM

Despite two suspensions for lightning, David Horsey made six birdies in his opening round at the Italian Open, carding 4-under-par 32-35=67.

Just five minutes had been possible at Golf Club Milano when heavy rain and the threat of a t-storm halted play and, after the action resumed at 0900 local time, there was another delay at 1005. Play finally restarted at 1330 although that meant there would be a four-hour-and-55-minute delay to the morning games yet to tee off and a five-hour delay to the afternoon tee times. Horsey ignored the chaos by making birdie at his opening hole, the 10th, and added further red at 15 and 16. A bogey at 1 halted his move but he broke out of a tie for first place with birdies at 2 and 3 to lead on his own at 4-under. He closed with bogey at 6 and birdie at 9, but by that time had been passed by Rickard Karlberg who ended the round on 7-under, Horsey was T5 in a pack of nine.

David Horsey sprinkled eight birdies on his scorecard in a 4-under-par 33-34=67 to nudge up five spots to T3 after the third round of the KLM Open in the Netherlands.

The Englishman has now made 15 birdies over the last 36 holes although four bogeys today along with two and a double yesterday have kept his charge in check. That said, at 11-under 202 he'll go into the final round at The Dutch just three shots behind leader Scott Hend. Horsey traded four birdies and two bogeys on each nine and closed his rollercoaster round with a pair of par breakers after he'd dropped shots at the previous two holes. The story so far this week is his failure to save par when missing greens. He hit 13 and 12 respectively on Friday and Saturday but is just 4-for-11 in scrambling over those 36 holes. Horsey split 9 (of 13) fairways today.
Sep 10 - 11:59 AM

A late error prevented David Horsey from sharing the lead at the end of the first round of the KLM Open after a 4-under-par 31-36=67 at The Dutch.

The Englishman began Thursday in spectacular style, posting six birdies in the opening 11 holes. He opened and closed that run with a brace of red at 1 and 2, then 10 and 11. In between he added two more at 4 and 6. He looked set to equal leader Ben Evans' 6-under only to make double bogey-6 on the 402-yard par-four 17th. He hit 15 greens in regulation and needed 28 putts in round one as he seeks a fourth career top 10 in the event.
Sep 8 - 1:23 PM

David Horsey has concerns about his scoring ahead of the 2016 KLM Open at new venue The Dutch in Spijk.

The Englishman boasts a strong record in this event, going 5-for-7 and kicking on when he does make the weekend: he's never ended a Sunday worse than T35 and has three top ten finishes, but they were all on traditional venues rather than a modern test like The Dutch. If experience on Montgomerie designs means anything Horsey was T13 on the Royal in Bahrain during the 2011 Volvo Golf Champions event, but has finishes of only T74-T36-T61 at Maxx Royal in Turkey. Just two top tens this season leave him with a lot of work to do if he wants to participate in the Finals Series (he is currently 115th on the Race to Dubai). But in ten strokeplay rounds since his T7 in the BMW International Open he hasn't broken 75 half the time and not gone sub-70 once.
Sep 6 - 6:47 AM

David Horsey coasted clear of big-hitting Frenchman Sebastian Gros, winning 6&4 in round one of the Paul Lawrie Match Play on the Fidra Links at Archerfield Links GC.

The Englishman had assumed early control to reach the turn with a 2 hole advantage, but a back nine birdie blitz killed off the chances of Gros, who had no answer for 4 birdies in the 5 holes they played on the homeward nine. Earlier Gros had eagled the par-five second to take a 1 hole lead which he maintained until a bogey on the fifth handed parity back to Horsey. He also lost No. 7 to par before Horsey doubled his advantage ticking red at the eighth. It was Horsey's first solo win in match play golf (previously 0-1-1) and he will play Haydn Porteous in round two.
Aug 4 - 6:15 AM

David Horsey heads to this week's 100th Open de France on the back of his best result of the season, a T7 at the BMW International Open in Germany.

That top 10 still leaves the Englishman outside the top 100 on the Race to Dubai but, hey, it's a start. Can he improve again in Paris? This is where it takes a rather giant leap of faith as Horsey has missed his last six cuts at Le Golf National. It didn't look as if he'd struggle like that when posting a decent T31 on debut in 2009 but despite starting with 70 in both 2010 and 2014 he hasn't been able to solve the puzzle. Having topped the Putting Average stats in Germany last week, perhaps this is the week when he finds the solution.

David Horsey eagled his fourth hole of the day and signed for a 3-under-par 33-36=69 in the opening round of the Lyoness Open.

That's good enough for T7 after day one and puts him five behind leader Adrian Otaegui. Starting at 10, Horsey made two pars and then surged with a birdie at 12 followed by an eagle-2 at 13. After missing out on the opportunity to make further gains on the par 5s at 15, 16 and 1, the Englishman moved to 5-under with circles at 3 and 4. That put him out in front but he wobbled at the finish with bogeys at 5, 7 and 8 against a birdie at 6. Horsey hit just 4 (of 14) fairways in his opener and was 2-for-6 in scrambling after hitting 12 greens in regulation. He was T9 at this course two years ago.

David Horsey has struggled to repeat his early success in the BMW PGA Championship but will have another try in this year's edition.

The Englishman shot a 67 on his very first lap of the West Course in 2009 to share the lead on day one and was second at halfway before slipping back to T43 at the finish. In 2011, he kept it going after another bright 36 holes and posted T7. But since then he's missed three cuts (2012, 2013, 2015) and posted T35 in 2014. Horsey has played just twice since February after undergoing a knee operation which needed rehab. He came back at Valderrama in April and missed the cut after opening with a 78 and suffered the same fate (R1 78 again) at the Trophee Hassan II three weeks ago. However, on Tuesday he tweeted, "Fully fit and raring to go for the @BMWPGA at Wentworth this week. Always my favourite week of the year. British fans are the best bar none." It's probably best to keep a watching brief for now even though he's clearly a fan of the course.
May 24 - 4:11 PM

With a halfway total of 10-over 78-74 at the Open de Espana, three-time European Tour winner David Horsey missed the cut at Valderrama but only by a shot.

Many of the morning starters were ready to pack their bags after enduring difficult second rounds but, with the course playing even tougher on Friday, they'll live to fight another day after the cut line moved higher and higher in the afternoon. Horsey won't be amongst the 69 who made it through, however, after a bogey at 18 left him the wrong side of the line by a shot. Other notables who failed to make the grade include: 152--Robert Rock; Romain Wattel; Anthony Wall ... 153--Brandon Stone; Jorge Campillo ... 154--Scott Hend ... 155--Nicolas Colsaerts; Matteo Manassero ... 156--Jaco Van Zyl ... 163--Lucas Bjerregaard.

Dave Horsey pulled out of the Maybank Championship Malaysia citing a back injury that will keep him out till mid April.

The Englishman started the day with birdie on No. 10, his first hole, but dropped four shots in four holes before the turn and got no further than the clubhouse. He wrote on Twitter: "Disappointed to have to withdraw from @maybankchampio1. Shooting pains up my lower back made it impossible to continue. Now having a knee op on my R lateral meniscus on Tue, which puts me out until Spanish Open. Hope to be back fitter and stronger by then." The Spanish Open is April 14-17.

David Horsey is 4-for-4 on this season's European Tour going into the Maybank Championship Malaysia in Kuala Lumpur.

After three finishes between T31 and T36, the Englishman improved to T14 in last week's Tshwane Open after closing 69-68. He was also ranked top of the scrambling stats there. Like the vast majority of this week's field, Horsey will be seeing Royal Selangor GC for the first time. The four-time European Tour winner has missed the cut on his last two trips to the country but did finish runner-up in the 2009 Malaysian Open Malaysian Open at Saujana.
Feb 16 - 3:48 AM

David Horsey will make his way to Lake Malaren in Shanghai, China to contest this week's BMW Masters.

This is the penultimate event of the European Tour's Final Series, with the top 60 on the Race to Dubai on Sunday sealing a spot in the season-ending DP World Tour Championship in Dubai next week. Horsey is currently 56th so is in danger of being passed if he has a poor tournament. This will be the Englishman's fourth start at Lake Malaren and his previous results are mixed: T33-T17-T71. After a win in Denmark in August and two subsequent top 10s, he's also cooled off in recent weeks with a missed cut in the UBS Hong Kong Open and a T74 in the Turkish Airlines Open.

David Horsey has climbed to 46th in the Race To Dubai going into this week's British Masters over the Marquess course at Woburn.

This is a home game for the Englishman and he'll arrive on the back of a third top 10 in his last six starts. That came via a T9 in last week's Alfred Dunhill Links Championship where he posted 64-68 over the final 36 holes. Horsey ranked 6th in Driving Accuracy in Scotland last week (85.4%) and that should bode well for this week with the tournament being played over a tight, tree-lined course.

David Horsey posted a 4-under-par 35-31=66 in his second round at the KLM Open and is just a stroke off the pace with 36 holes to play.

Further proof, then, that the Englishman is one of the European's hottest players following a win at the Made In Denmark and a third at the M2M Russian Open in the last three weeks. Horsey circled five birdies against a single bogey at Kennemer today to arrive at 11-under 129 at the midpoint. Par breakers at 13 and 14 took him to within one of Soren Kjeldsen's lead but he couldn't make further gains over the closing four holes. After hitting 15 greens in regulation in Thursday's 63, the four-time European Tour winner only managed 11 in round two but was 6-for-7 in scrambling and took just 24 putts.
