Victor Dubuisson's curious year will continue when he plays on the Beckenbauer Golf Course at Golf Resort Bad Griesbach in the Porsche European Open.
The Frenchman is ranked 57th in this year's Race to Dubai and that position is entirely the consequence of one good week and his recent history of quality. He opened the season with a T4 at the Nedbank Golf Challenge, a limited field event with a big purse with earned him €254,536. Then two very average efforts in WGC fields (T52 in the Cadillac Championship, T38 in the World Match Play Championship) boosted his bank balance by €106,587. Knock those three checks off his year total of €421,680 and you're not left with much, unsurprising given that he hasn't finished in the top 40 of a main tour event since that opener in South Africa. It would be a brave gamer who had him on the team these days. Sep 19 - 3:01 PM

Victor Dubuisson makes a sixth visit to the Omega European Masters at Crans-sur-Sierre GC this week.

The enigmatic Frenchman heads to the Alps with a record that, were it represented in the form of a graph, would actually look like a mountain: his first and last visit saw him miss the cut, his second and fourth starts reaped T49 and T29, in between he shot 68-65-66-66 to end the week T3 (2013). Two years ago his Ryder Cup debut hinted at better things to come and yet his mysterious off-the-course problems seem to have worsened rather than eased. He opened this season with T4 at the lucrative Nedbank Challenge, since when he is 4-for-10 in strokeplay on the European Tour and failed to make any headway in the WGC World Match Play. All that said, being a true enigma it's entirely possible he could do something special out of nowhere and maybe the week's Ryder Cup talk will prompt him to recall what he will be missing in Hazeltine.

Victor Dubuisson withdrew Wednesday from the Aberdeen Asset Management Scottish Open at Castle Stuart Golf Links. UPDATE: Dubuisson returned at the ISPS HANDA Global Cup and compiled a T9 finish by week's end.

The Frenchman only cited illness, as reported by the Press Association's Phil Casey on his Twitter feed. There was no word on his likely involvement at next week's Open Championship. He concluded last week's Open de France with rounds of 85-75 to finish last of those who made the weekend.

Victor Dubuisson makes his way to England this week and will try to revive a faltering season in the BMW PGA Championship at Wentworth.

A fourth spot at December's money-laden Nedbank Golf Challenge banked the Frenchman plenty of early Race to Dubai points but since the turn of the year he hasn't managed a single top 30 in seven events. He did post T42 at Augusta National but since the Masters he's withdrawn after an opening 71 at the Shenzhen International in China and crashed out after 36 holes of last week's Irish Open after a second-round 81. Dubuisson took a share of 21st spot on his Wentworth debut in 2012 but missed the cut in 2013 and, after skipping the 2014 event, slipped to T63 last year after a poor weekend. It's hard to put any trust in him at the moment despite an underlying feeling that he could get hot on any given week.

French Ryder Cup star Victor Dubuisson will tee it up at Augusta National Golf Club for his third Masters appearance.

He can fly the ball, he’s a strong ball-striker and he possesses a delicate touch around the greens. What‘s not to like about the Frenchman as a fit for Augusta National? Maybe he’ll finally produce the goods this year, but maybe the truth is that the formality of the occasion stifles his twitchy disposition. Whatever, he may well appear a neat fit, but the only neat thing about his two trips to the Masters thus far have been their similarity: both times he has shot 74-75 to miss the cut. It’s also been a lacklustre start to his 2016. He missed the cut in both Abu Dhabi and Perth, stumbled to T52 at Doral and failed to progress past the group stage in the World Match Play Championship.

Victor Dubuisson derailed Justin Thomas with a 3-and-2 victory during the first round of the World Golf Championships-Dell Match Play.

The Frenchman wedged his approach to just 5'5" on the par-4 first hole, splashing home the birdie and grabbing the early lead. Thomas would eventually claw back and square the match with a birdie on the par-5 sixth hole, but the youngster never led at any point today. This turned into a pillow fight as Dubuisson only circled three birdies on the day, but his lead was never really in question after making the turn at 2-up. The 2014 Match Play hero will take on Jordan Spieth in round two while Thomas will turn his attention toward Jamie Donaldson.

Former finalist Victor Dubuisson takes on top seed Jordan Spieth, American youngster Justin Thomas and European Ryder Cup colleague Jamie Donaldson in Group 1 at the World Golf Championships-Dell Match Play.

The mercurial Frenchman became a cult figure in this event at Dove Mountain in Arizona two years ago when playing a series of incredible recovery shots to stay alive against Jason Day before the Aussie finally put him away. Dubuisson also showed his match-play skills in Europe's 2014 Ryder Cup win at Gleneagles when going unbeaten in three matches (halved his singles with Zach Johnson) although he did lose all three head-to-heads in this tournament last year at Harding Park. He's dangerous in this format although the lack of any current form (T52-MC-MC) is a concern ahead of his trip to Austin Country Club in Texas.

Victor Dubuisson failed to build on his opening 65 at the BMW Masters in China and handed in a 1-over-par 35-38=73 in round two.

The Frenchman is the only player in the top 30 on the halfway leaderboard at Lake Malaren to have shot over par on Friday and that dropped him seven spots to T9, six behind leader Lucas Bjerregaard. Dubuisson, who won the Turkish Airlines Open on his last start, birdied No. 2 but that was his only gain of a frustrating day. He returned to even par for the round after dropping a shot at 12 and swallowed a walk-off bogey at 18 to arrive at 6-under 138. The 25-year-old piped 9 (of 14) fairways, hit 13 greens in regulation and took 32 putts.

In his first round since winning the Turkish Airlines Open two weeks ago, Victor Dubuisson hit all 18 greens in regulation and carded a bogey-free 7-under-par 31-34=65 at the BMW Masters in China.

That's good enough for T2 after the opening day and puts the Frenchman just a single shot behind leader Sergio Garcia. Still buzzing after that emotional win in Turkey, Dubuisson played his opening nine holes in 31 after birdies at 11, 12, 13, 15 and 18. He made further gains at 2 and 9. The 25-year-old hit every green after splitting 10 of Lake Malaren's 14 fairways. He took 29 putts.

In his post-tournament presser at the Turkish Airlines Open, champion Victor Dubuisson provided some detail as to why he didn't honor the PGA TOUR membership minimum of 15 starts in his debut on the circuit in 2014-15.

Dubuisson made only 10 starts and finished 190th in the FedExCup standings. Martin Kaymer received most of the attention for failing to fulfill the membership provision, but the Frenchman was also guilty. The mercurial 25-year-old offered this explanation today: "I played a few events at the beginning of the year, and for personal reasons at home, I was just feeling not good to be far away from my family. And, I don't know, I was just not feeling good on the PGA TOUR, because I was struggling going back, and going back (indicating back and forth). I decided I will come back to the PGA TOUR in a few years, but probably just buy a place there. If I play the PGA [TOUR], I will play the full season. Now, for the next three or four years, I will just stay in Europe 100 percent." If he continues to enjoy success globally, it seems only a matter of time before he'll open up about his personal life.

With three birdies in the final four holes, Victor Dubuisson hung up a 6-under-par 34-32=66 to win the Turkish Airlines Open by a shot.

The Frenchman now has two European Tour wins and both have come in this tournament at The Montgomerie Maxx Royal. On a dramatic final day, he looked to have it all to do when two behind after walking off the 14th green but he circled birdies at 15, 17 and 18 to post 22-under 266 and edge out Jaco Van Zyl by a shot. Kiradech Aphibarnrat was two strokes back in third and could have tied had his chip at 18 not hit the flag. Byeong-Hung An at -19 and Chris Wood at -18 rounded out the top five while Rory McIlroy slipped to T6 after a closing 71. By winning the opening leg of the four-tournament Final Series, Dubuisson moves up to seventh on the Race To Dubai. "It's so hard because there were so many personal reasons why I didn't play that much this year," he said. "It's not because I didn't want to play. I was really counting on this Final Series to give me some confidence back." He'll add a start at the 2016 WGC-Bridgestone Invitational as a result of this win.

Victor Dubuisson birdied four of the final six holes in a 5-under-par 33-34=67 and shares the 54-hole lead at the Turkish Airlines Open with Jaco Van Zyl.

The duo sit at 16-under 200, a shot clear of pre-tournament favorite Rory McIlroy and two-time 2015 winner Kiradech Aphibarnrat. It's a further two strokes back to Byeong-Hun An and Chris Wood in T5. Dubuisson, who won the inaugural edition of this tournament in 2013, traded a birdie with a bogey over the first two holes before picking up further shots at 4 and 6. A dropped shot at 10 saw him fall off the pace but birdies at 13, 14, 15 and 18 elevated him to top spot alongside Van Zyl, who had started the day with a two-shot lead. "It's a course that I feel great on," said Dubuisson after his 67 at the Montgomerie Maxx Royal. "My long game has been really, really good since the beginning of the year, but my short game was just really, really bad. I don't know, I changed my putter one month and a half ago," The Frenchman hit 13 greens in regulation for the second day running and took 28 putts. He's 13-for-17 in scrambling this week.

With a pair of closing birdies, Victor Dubuisson hung up an 8-under-par 31-33=64 in round two of the Turkish Airlines Open.

The Frenchman's love affair with the Montgomerie Maxx Royal continued on Friday. Two years ago, he won the inaugural edition of this tournament to land his first, and so far only, European Tour title. And last year, following a 77 in round one, he recovered to make the top 15 after a closing 64. He matched that total today with birdies at 1, 3, 4 and 8 on the front nine and further gains at 11, 13, 17 and 18 on the back. Dubuisson, who was 5-for-5 in scrambling, will go into the weekend three shots behind leader Jaco Van Zyl and very much in position to lift this trophy for the second time in three years.

With defending champion Brooks Koepka absent, Victor Dubuisson is the only former winner of the Turkish Airlines Open taking part this week.

Dubuisson won the inaugural edition of the tournament in 2013, securing his first, and so far only, European Tour victory with rounds of 67-65-63-69. His return to the Montgomerie Maxx Royal got off to a dreadful start last year when he opened with a 77 but the Frenchman fought back in style and eventually posted T15 after a closing 64. He's been something of an enigma in 2015 but still sits inside the top 50 in the Race To Dubai (49th) and showed some rare consistency with two 68s and two 70s when T32 in last week's UBS Hong Kong Open.

After four weeks off, Victor Dubuisson will make his return at this week's Alfred Dunhill Links Championship in Scotland.

The Frenchman endured a difficult first six months of the year but is 6-for-7 worldwide since missing the cut at the U.S. Open. He has four top 20s in that run, including T10 at July's Scottish Open. His last start was a T27 at August's Czech Masters. Dubuisson has some good form on links courses and, although he's only 2-for-4 overall in this event, has a tied fifth in 2012. That year he opened with a 62 at St. Andrews which stages two of the four rounds this week.
