Victor Dubuisson has withdrawn from next week's PLAYERS, according to Garry Smits of The Florida Times-Union.
Good luck trying to figure the Frenchman out. He went 0-3 at the Match Play in what was just his sixth start of 2014-15 in what in his first season with a PGA TOUR card. Now he withdraws from a $10 million tournament for the second straight year. It's highly unusual for a healthy golfer not to play TPC Sawgrass no matter how much he may dislike the track, but Dubuisson has proven to be the anomaly, if that's even logically possible.

Charl Schwartzel cakewalked to a 5-and-4 victory over Victor Dubuisson in the first round of the World Golf Championships-Cadillac Match Play Championship.

If you paid money to watch this in person, someone owes you a refund and an apology. Last year's runner-up played 14 holes in birdie-free 3-over and conceded two holes. Schwartzel opened with the only birdie of the match -- a 4 at the first hole -- and rode it to arguably the easiest point of the day. In addition to the concessions, the latter on the par-4 14th hole where the match ended, he won Nos. 2, 3 and 10 with pars. Dubuisson's only win occurred at the par-4 seventh, which he didn't birdie, of course, but he didn't concede it, either. Given this display, both Dustin Johnson and Matt Jones have to feel pretty good about their chances against Schwartzel and Dubuisson, respectively, in the the second round.

Last year's beaten finalist Victor Dubuisson takes on Dustin Johnson, Charl Schwartzel and Matt Jones in the round-robin stage of the WGC-Match Play.

The Frenchman pulled off some miracle escapes before losing to Jason Day in the Championship match at Dove Mountain 12 months ago but faces a different challenge this year as the event changes format and moves from Arizona to TPC Harding Park in San Francisco. Dubuisson has a singles record of 7-4-1 in all match-play as a pro (WGC-Match Play, Eurasia Cup, Ryder Cup and Volvo World Match Play Championship) and is a dangerous opponent due to his short-game magic. He missed the cut at Augusta National on his last start but before that was T17 at the Houston Open after a closing 66.

Victor Dubuisson tacked on a 4-under-par 35-33=68 in today's second round of the Shell Houston Open to reach the midpoint in 9-under 135, two strokes off the 36-hole clubhouse lead.

The Frenchman went 6-for-13 in scoring opportunities today with six birdies. Three of them ranged 10-15 feet. He also squared two bogeys, but he's poured in 13 birdies through two rounds, good for second-most in the field, so he can afford a mistake here and there. This is Dubuisson's debut in Houston, but that hasn't mattered around the world in the last couple of years. While he's missed his fair share of cuts and playing time due to injuries, his fearless profile has yielded one top five or top 10 after another. It's the kind of record that aligns with his enigmatic personality.

Victor Dubuisson carded a 5-under-par 34-33=67 in his opening round of the Shell Houston Open, finishing four strokes off the clubhouse lead.

Well, this is a pleasant surprise. At the same time, it's kind of expected only because he has a propensity of lighting fire every so often. It's fun from the standpoint of a casual fan, but it can get aggravating if you're a weekly gamer. Dubuisson hit 14 greens in regulation and circled seven birdies at the Golf Club of Houston today. Four rolled at least 15 feet. The longest measured 29'2" at the par-3 seventh. At last check, the Frenchman led the field in strokes gained: putting at 3.755.
Apr 2 - 2:43 PM

Victor Dubuisson makes his first career visit to the Golf Club of Houston's Tournament Course.

Dubuisson is carrying dual-membership on the European and PGA TOURs but has made only three starts so far in 2015. His lone appearance overseas was a T4 at Abu Dhabi 11 weeks ago. This week's SHO marks his third-straight start in the U.S. He followed a disappointing MC at Honda with an uninspiring T62 at the WGC-Cadillac.
Mar 31 - 1:43 PM

Victor Dubuisson settled for a 3-over-par 36-37=73 in his opening round of The Honda Classic.

Given the severity of today's challenge at PGA National, he won't be too displeased with this, and at least he's back inside the ropes. Dubuisson withdrew early from his last two commitments, including last week's Northern Trust Open. Today, he split 10 (of 14) fairways and hit 11 greens in regulation. He connected for two birdies, including a roll from just outside 10 feet at the par-5 third hole, but the Frenchman also swallowed three bogeys and a double. This is just his second start of the season on the PGA TOUR (WD, WGC-HSBC Champions).
Feb 26 - 3:05 PM

Victor Dubuisson is expected to compete in next week's Honda Classic.

It's a verbal commitment for now, but we know how his last two ended up. With early withdrawal in Malaysia and at this week's Northern Trust Open, concern continues to build over his inability to remain healthy. If he gives it a go at PGA National, he'll be the ultimate wild card, not only coming off illness and two early WDs, but also for the fact that he'll be playing PGA National for the first time in competition.
Feb 20 - 6:21 PM

Victor Dubuisson has been removed from the published field of this week's Northern Trust Open.

Gamers are used to this, but it doesn't make it any less frustrating. Dubuisson hasn't played since a T4 in Abu Dhabi a month ago. He then withdrew early in the week of the Maybank Malaysian Open with an illness. The Frenchman is 0-for-1 as a first-time PGA TOUR member this season with a, what else, withdrawal at the WGC-HSBC Champions in November. Because he is such a vlauable performer when healthy, we have no choice but to remain patient for his return, whenever it will be.
Feb 16 - 10:45 AM

Victor Dubuisson is scheduled to complete in next week's Northern Trust Open.

An illness knocked the Frenchman out of last week's Maybank Malaysian Open. That's always better than an injury, a series of which have seemed to follow him around during his global jaunts. One of the more recent was an injury to his lower back that forced him out after two rounds of the WGC-HSBC Champions in November. It was his debut as a PGA TOUR member. The NTO will mark his second start with a card and his first on U.S. soil. His last effort in this country yielded a T7 at the PGA Championship. In his last start anywhere, he tied for fourth in Abu Dhabi. So, the scouting report suggests that he should contend as long as he doesn't withdraw.
Feb 13 - 7:20 PM

Victor Dubuisson has withdrawn from this week's Maybank Malaysian Open, citing an illness.

The European Tour confirmed the explanation on its Twitter page. Dubuisson last competed in Abu Dhabi and tied for fourth. He's currently not committed to the next two events (in Thailand and India, respectively). His U.S. debut as a PGA TOUR member would occur at the World Golf Championships-Cadillac Championship on March 5-8.
Feb 4 - 4:33 PM

Victor Dubuisson heads to the Maybank Malaysian Open this week to make just his second start of the new calendar year.

The Frenchman started 2015 fast by taking fourth place in the Abu Dhabi HSBC Golf Championship but chose to swerve the other two legs of the Gulf Swing. He dusts himself off again in Malaysia this week to compete on a course he is familiar with. Dubuisson first contested this event at Kuala Lumpur G&CC in 2012 and was T11 and returned the following year to finish fourth. On a course where hitting greens in regulation has been a key indicator to success, Dubuisson (who was third in that category in Abu Dhabi) looks an obvious pick for gamers.
Feb 2 - 5:10 PM

Victor Dubuisson authored a closing bogey-free 5-under 34-33=67 to wrap up a tie for fourth at the Abu Dhabi HSBC Golf Championship.

Backing up a Saturday 64, Dubuisson finished his week at 16-under -- three back from compatriot Gary Stal, who vaulted over Martin Kaymer to snatch a one-shot win. Dubuisson hit 16 greens in regulation for the second day running and circled five birdies. He was out in 34 after par breakers at the fourth and eighth; he was back in 33 after posting red at 10, 12 and 16. The top five finally puts some positive memories in the bank for the French Ryder Cup star in this event. In two previous starts he'd missed the cut both times.
Jan 18 - 8:41 AM

Victor Dubuisson returns to the Abu Dhabi Golf Championship and hopes to make the weekend for the first time in three visits.

The Frenchman has shot over par in all four laps of the par 72 course. That's resulted in missed cuts in both 2012 and 2013. Whether it's the course or the time of year is unclear. On the plus side, he does boast a good record in the desert having finished second and third in the last two editions of the DP World Championship in Dubai. He also reached the final of the WGC-Accenture Match Play in Arizona last February. The Ryder Cup star battled a bad back towards the end of 2014 so a watching brief is advised.
Jan 14 - 6:49 AM

Victor Dubuisson settled for a 3-over-par 38-37=75 in his opening round of the Thailand Golf Championship.

The Frenchman is coming off a sore back that prevented him to withdrew early from last week's Nedbank Golf Challenge in South Africa. Injuries have riddled his brief career, but like Jason Day, Dubuisson has risen into contention on numerous contentions despite the discomfort. However, he'll need to come from way back in Thailand where he sandwiched two birdies with five bogeys. He sits T54 among 125 golfers and six strokes adrift of four overnight co-leaders.
