David Horsey returns to the scene of his first European Tour victory as he lines up in this week's BMW International Open at Golfclub München Eichenried.
Horsey took the title on his first ever visit to the Munich course in 2010 after following an opening 69 with three 67s. He's since added two further wins on the European Tour. The Englishman was T18 when defending his title in 2011 and also cashed (T58) the last time it staged the event in 2013. He'll hope another chance to play the par 72 will spark him into action after a rather low-key campaign so far. Horsey is just 7-for-13 this season and has managed only a single top 10.

David Horsey will hope to continue some good recent form when he lines up again in the BMW PGA Championship at Wentworth.

The Englishman has cashed on each of his last five starts and a T15 in the Open de Espana last week was his third top 20 during that run. He's had mixed success in his home event at Wentworth with three missed cuts in six starts. However, he did post a T7 in the 2011 event, was first round leader and second at halfway in 2009 (finished T43) and opened with a 68 to sit T8 after Thursday's play last year before fading to T35.

Course specialist David Horsey swallowed a pair of double bogeys but still managed to carve out a 2-under-par 34-36=70 on day one of the Trophee Hassan II.

Horsey's past exploits at Golf du Palais Royal show a win in 2011, a second place in 2013 and two other top 15s. The love affair continued from the off today as he eagled his opening hole, the 10th, and added a birdie at 11. The Englishman continued his progress with a par breaker at 16 but instead of following it with another at the par-5 17th, he racked up an ugly 7. He repaired the damage with birdies at 1 and 6 but ran into more trouble with a second double bogey of the day at the par-3 8th. The three-time European Tour winner, who is now 56-under for his last 21 rounds at the course, is currently three behind clubhouse leader George Coetzee.

David Horsey will be licking his lips going into this week's Trophée Hassan II at Golf du Palais Royal.

The event is played in the picturesque palatial grounds of the home of the King of Morocco, Mohammed VI, and Horsey will expect to put on another royal performance. The Englishman won the inaugural Trophée Hassan II at this venue in 2011 and has since finished 14th, runner-up and T8. Last year he carded his lowest 18 on the par 72, an 8-under 64. Three-time European Tour winner Horsey had been struggling in the early months of 2015 but sparked his season into life with a T10 in the Tshwane Open on his last start.
Mar 24 - 8:32 AM

After starting Sunday as one of the six leaders, David Horsey closed with a disappointing 3-over-par 36-37=73 to finish the Tshwane Open in a tie for 10th.

Five bogeys and a double littered Horsey's card and in a bunched field that was only going to send him spiralling down the leaderboard. The Englishman circled two birdies against a bogey in his first six holes before running into trouble with a double bogey-5 at the par-3 eighth. After a par breaker at 10, his hopes died with four bogeys in the next five holes. A consolation birdie at 17 just managed to squeeze him into the top 10 on 6-under 274 but, after sharing the lead after 18 and 54 holes, Horsey will leave Pretoria CC with a sense of disappointment.
Mar 15 - 10:59 AM

David Horsey swallowed three bogeys and a double but still shot under par on day two of the Tshwane Open to remain in the thick of contention.

The Englishman carded a bogey-free 63 in round one to share the overnight lead with Morten Ørum Madsen; today, he settled for a 1-under-par 33-36=69 to reach 8-under 132 at the midpoint. Despite running into trouble on his second nine, he's currently in solo second in the clubhouse -- three behind leader Adrian Otaegui. Horsey mixed four birdies and two bogeys on his opening nine after starting at 10 but ran into trouble with another blemish at the first and a double bogey-6 at the fourth. To his credit, he recovered with a birdie at the sixth before chipping in for another par breaker at the eighth.
Mar 13 - 5:53 AM

David Horsey compiled a flawless 7-under-par 32-31=63 to join Morten Ørum Madsen at the top of the leaderboard on day one of the Tshwane Open.

This is the spark Horsey was looking for after starting 2015 with four missed cuts in five events. The Englishman, who played in the afternoon wave at Pretoria CC, started with a series of pars before finishing his front nine with three birdies in four holes. He picked off further par breakers at 12 and 14, drained a huge curling birdie putt at the 16th and caught Madsen at 7-under with another gain from short range at 17. Two good blows to the tough 514-yard par-4 18th set up one final birdie chance but he burned the edge with his 25-footer. The 29-year-old hasn't had a top 10 since winning the M2M Russian Open last July.
Mar 12 - 10:14 AM

David Horsey was T10 in last year's Joburg Open but has started 2015 in the worst possible fashion.

The Englishman had a win at the Russian Open on the way to finishing 69th in last year's Race to Dubai but is 0-for-3 this season after missed cuts in the South African Open, Abu Dhabi Golf Championship and Dubai Desert Classic. This week could be a good chance to fire the engines up as he's 4-for-5 at Royal Johannesburg & Kensington and also made the top 10 in two of his last three starts on South African soil.
Feb 25 - 6:25 AM

David Horsey has positive memories to call upon when he lines up in just his second South African Open this week.

The Englishman hasn’t played in the event since 2008 when he was still a member of the second-tier Challenge Tour. On that occasion the now three-time European Tour winner showed what was to come by finishing T19. The 29-year-old has also enjoyed recent trips to South Africa, finishing third in last year’s Africa Open and T10 in the 2014 Joburg Open.
Jan 7 - 8:43 AM

With a par on the only hole of sudden death, David Horsey emerged with the victory at the M2M Russian Open.

The Englishman served as the tournament's outright leader after both 18 and 36 holes. He co-led following 54 holes with Peter Whiteford of Scotland. Horsey then closed with an even-par 36-36=72 that featured a chip-in for eagle at the par-5 17th. (Whiteford blew up for a 3-over 38-37=75 to finish alone in fifth place.) With the door open, Ireland's Damien McGrane capitalized, carding a 6-under 33-33=66, but walked off with a bogey-5 at 18 to initiate the playoff. Alas, McGrane failed to get up and down from a greenside bunker on the same hole in it, allowing Horsey to take the title with a par. It's Horsey's third European Tour victory, his first since 2011. "I didn’t play that great today – it was a bit scrappy and I wasn’t holing the putts – but I managed to get the job done in the end," he surmised.

David Horsey emerged victorious on the second hole of sudden death today at the Trophée Hassan II at Golf du Palais Royal and Golf de l'Océan in Agadir, Morocco.

Horsey completed regulation in 13-under-par 274 with Rhys Davies and Jaco Van Zyl. The Brit double-bogeyed the par-4 18th hole, but he also aced the par-3 second earlier in the day. He pured his approach at the second hole of the playoff -- a par 4 -- setting up an easy birdie. Davies had a chance to win it in regulation, but fanned on a four-footer for birdie. This is Horsey's second career title on the European Tour. He won last year's BMW International Open in Germany in late June.

With an aggregate of 18-under-par 69-67-67-67=270, England's David Horsey won the BMW International Open in Munich, Germany by one stroke over fellow countryman, Ross Fisher.

Horsey started the day tied for fifth place and five strokes back of 54-hole leader, Bradley Dredge. The Welshman closed with a 74, and all other would-be challengers also failed to make a run. Alex Cejka was one of five golfers to finish two back of Horsey, who carded a bogey-free final round to clinch his first victory on the European Tour. The 25-year-old is now exempt on the circuit through 2012.
