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. Sep 1 - 7:00 PM

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.
Aug 21 - 2:12 PM

David Horsey matched the lowest nine on The European Tour this year in an eight-under-par 28-35=63 in round one of the Made In Denmark.

Starting at 10, the Englishman carded an eagle-3 at the 11th and reeled off five straight birdies from the 13th before a par at 18 saw him turn in just 28 strokes. Talk of the European Tour's first official 59 grew when he birdied No. 2 but, yet again, the 60 barrier proved inpenetrable as he played the final eight holes in even par. Still, that's a great day's work and, for now, gives Horsey a two-shot lead over Scotland's Paul Lawrie. He said later, "The magic number crept into my head going down the fourth -- my 13th -- and I wouldn't say it affected me too much but I three-putted, then made a mess of the next hole." Horsey split just 6 (of 14) fairways at Himmerland Golf & Spa Resort on Thursday but hit 16 greens in regulation. The three-time European Tour winner also opened with a 63 at the Tshwane Open in March but had to settle for T10 after a closing 73. That remains his only top 10 of a disappointing campaign so he'll be determined to make this fast start count.

David Horsey was T39 in the first edition of the Made In Denmark tournament and returns to Aalborg for another crack.

The Englishman opened with a 76 last year but made the cut via a Friday 70 and closed with a 69 to break into the top 40. This year he's 116th on the Race To Dubai after making the cut in 50% of his 18 events. The three-time European Tour winner has managed just a single top 10 while he's failed to cash in four of his last six starts so needs a spark.
Aug 17 - 5:26 PM

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.
