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. Jun 28 - 5:07 PM

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.

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.

In-form David Horsey toured Kennemer in 7-under-par 31-32=63 in round one of the KLM Open on Thursday.

That's good for a tie of the early clubhouse lead with fellow Englishman James Morrison and local man Joost Luiten. Horsey, who has a win and a solo third in his last three European Tour starts, birdied half the holes in his morning round while also swallowing back-to-back bogeys at 4 and 5. Those dropped shots came during a second-nine in which he added three birdies either side to come home in 32. Horsey split 10 (of 13) fairways on his opening lap and hit 15 greens in regulation. He was 2-for-2 in sand saves.

Last year's M2M Russian Open winner David Horsey started his title defense well with a 4-under-par 33-34=67 in the opening round.

Horsey won the trophy at Tseleevo Golf & Polo Club 12 months ago after starting out with a 65. He needed two more strokes at Skolkovo Golf Club this morning but is currently T4 on the live leaderboard and in position to make another trophy bid. The Englishman, who won the Made In Denmark a fortnight ago, circled birdies at 13, 17 and 18 on his opening nine and added three more at 3, 4 and 6. Bogeys at 2 and 8 meant he finished his morning lap two shots behind pacesetter Scott Jamieson. He split 11 (of 13) fairways and hit 13 greens in regulation.

David Horsey won last year's M2M Russian Open at Tseleevo Golf & Polo Club and will attempt to win it again at a different venue in 2015.

This time the tournament moves to a new Jack Nicklaus design in Moscow, the par 71 Skolkovo Golf Club. Twelve months ago Horsey won the event in a playoff after matching Damien McGrane with an eagle-par finish and clinching victory at the first extra hole. That was his third European Tour win and he added a fourth when landing the Made In Denmark two weeks ago. That gun-to-tape victory, sparked by an opening 63, ensured a big rise up the Race To Dubai rankings and he sits 57th ahead of his title defense this week.

Despite a 2-over-par 36-37=73 in today's final round of the Made in Denmark, David Horsey recorded a two-stroke victory.

He stood alone atop the leaderboard after each of the first three rounds, and then posted 13-under 271 today, two strokes clear of a foursome of runners-up, including Terry Pilkadaris, who started the finale one shot back. The Aussie was bogey-free 2-under through seven holes, but came home with three bogeys and a double against nothing but pars. Horsey found 13 greens in regulation but connected for only one birdie and squared three bogeys. Yet, the Brit leaves Himmerland Golf & Spa Resort in Farsø with his fourth European Tour title. "It's a kick-start really," he said. "I've been playing well for quite a few months now and not really been getting any results and not scoring particularly well so to come out with a bit more strategy and a bit more focus this week has paid off. ... The last couple of holes there was a lot of waiting around it and it started to then become a reality so very, very pleased. I made hard work of it but I got over the line at the end."

David Horsey maintained outright possession of the lead at the Made in Denmark after a 3-under-par 32-36=68 in today's third round.

The Englishman is 15-under 198 through 54 holes, one clear of Australia's Terry Pilkadaris, who rose into contention with a field-low 65 on Saturday. Horsey hit 12 greens in regulation today en route to an eagle and five birdies against four bogeys. He was bogey-free 5-under after just six holes and in command at the time. "I got off to a great start so I was obviously very pleased with that," he said, but also admitted that he didn't know that he extended his margin to seven shots. "There were a few tough holes in the middle that I didn't tackle that well, and obviously it was disappointing to bogey the last. It's tricky, though, as there's a cross-wind out there. All you have to do is miss a couple of shots and you're in real bother." The 30-year-old will be gunning for a wire-to-wire victory at Himmerland Golf & Spa Resort in Farsø on Sunday.

Overnight leader David Horsey added a 4-under-par 34-33=67 in his second round of the Made in Denmark, posting 12-under 130 at the break, three swings clear of Richard Green and John Parry.

While he didn't race out of the gates like Thursday's opening 28, Horsey set the tone early with a birdie-3 at the first hole today. He added four birdies and picked off an eagle at the par-5 sixth hole. The par breakers helped offset a trio of mid-round birdies. While he enters the weekend in pursuit of his fourth European Tour title, one of the secondary stories of the day occurred behind the green at the 16th hole. It was at the spectator-friendly par 3 where Denmark's Andreas Hartø sunk a short birdie putt, and then successfully proposed to his girlfriend. The 27-year-old golfer shot 3-over 74 and missed the cut by five strokes, but he'll likely be celebrating tonight, anyway.
