Victor Dubuisson will try and tame Augusta National Golf Club in his first Masters appearance.
It's likely that he won't be overly intimidated, as he nearly took down the field of 64 in the WGC-Accenture Match Play Championship before settling for second behind Jason Day. Dubuisson now holds Special Temporary Membership, meaning he can receive unlimited sponsor exemptions. A strong finish at the Masters would likely boost his stock with those sponsors and lead to more opportunities in the U.S. Apr 8 - 9:22 PM

Victor Dubuisson has accepted Special Temporary Membership [STM] on the PGA TOUR.

The Match Play runner-up is the first of the season to qualify. STM grants three benefits: 1) Unlimited sponsor exemptions; 2) Unlimited starts; 3) Placement in the Beyond 150 (Past Champion category) Reshuffle. Non-members are capped at 12 starts plus THE PLAYERS, so by taking STM, the implication is that Dubuisson will exceed the previous restriction, but it's not unusual for those with STM not to. Ryo Ishikawa (2012) and Jordan Spieth (2013) are actually exceptions that did take advantage of the perks. Dubuisson will qualify for all of the majors, WGCs and THE PLAYERS for certain. However, unless he wins, he will remain ineligible for the FedExCup Playoffs and his earnings do not count toward the official money list. STM is a bonus of sorts, but Dubuisson figures to be more valuable in 2014-15 as a fully exempt PGA TOUR member (eligible for the FedExCup Playoffs and official money list) assuming he accepts membership next season.

Victor Dubuisson lost to Jason Day in 23 holes in the finale of the World Golf Championships-Accenture Match Play Championship.

The Frenchman was left for dead so many times in this match that it wasn't even funny. At 2 down with two to play, he rattled home a birdie on the par-4 17th, and then managed a smooth up-and-down from a greenside bunker to force extra holes. On each of the first two extra holes, he flew his approach into the desert and was left with nothing. Well, almost nothing. On both occasions Dubuisson managed to find the green and convert relatively short par putts. He met his Waterloo on the 15th -- the fifth extra hole -- failing to match Day's birdie. The silver lining is that Dubuisson is now eligible for Special Temporary Memberships. He is also a virtual lock for the European Ryder Cup team.

Victor Dubuisson outlasted Ernie Els 1 up in the semifinals of the World Golf Championships-Accenture Match Play Championship and will take on Jason Day in the finals this afternoon.

Dubuisson dug himself a hole early, as Els captured three of the first four holes for a 3-up lead. The Frenchman went on a roll of his own in the middle of his round, winning four out of five holes beginning with the par-5 eighth. Els then bounced back with a win at the par-4 14th to square the match, but Dubuisson followed with a win of his on at the par-4 15th. The South African snaked in a lengthy birdie putt on the par-3 16th to square it again, but conceded a par and the match to the Frenchman on the 18th green after failing save a par of his own from a greenside bunker. Dubuisson now faces Jason Day in the finale beginning at 2:00 p.m. ET.

Victor Dubuisson knocked off Graeme McDowell 1 up in the Snead Bracket in the quarterfinals of the World Golf Championships-Accenture Match Play Championship and advances to take on Ernie Els in the semifinals on Sunday.

The Frenchman was 2 down after three holes, but battled back with wins on the fourth, seventh and ninth holes, all with birdies. The win at the ninth came in the form of a chip-in, and occurred while G-Mac was in relatively tight for a birdie bid that he would miss. Over the final nine holes, each man picked up two wins and squared the other five. The final four is now set, with Dubuisson taking on Ernie Els and Jason Day locking horns with Rickie Fowler. With the exception of Day, the other three were generally expected to have exited well before the semifinals. Day finished third at Dove Mountain last year, potentially cursing him as the favorite tomorrow.

Victor Dubuisson downed Bubba Watson 1 up in the Snead Bracket in the third round of the World Golf Championships-Accenture Match Play Championship.

Every now and then, a relative unknown comes along and tears it up for an extended period of time. Other internationals that have done so in varying degrees in recent years include Edoardo Molinari, Branden Grace and David Lynn. It's Dubuisson's turn. He opened par-birdie on the lefty and went wire-to-wire despite nearly let this match go after sitting 3 up after 14 holes. The 23-year-old Frenchman is in Saturday's quarterfinal against Graeme McDowell.

Victor Dubuisson got over on Peter Hanson 3 and 1 in the Snead Bracket in the second round of the World Golf Championships-Accenture Match Play Championship.

This match featured a reset after seven holes. Dubuisson won Nos. 1-3 with birdies, and then Hanson copied the feat on 5-7 to square. The Frenchman then birdied the par-5 eighth to reclaim the advantage he wouldn't relinquish. In fact, he shut out his fellow European and picked up two more win down the stretch. A birdie at the par-4 17th served as the final nail. Overall, Dubuisson scored 5-under-par to the Swede's 1-over. Hanson bogeyed three of the four par 5s. Dubuisson is the first first-timer this week to reach the third round where he'll take on Bubba Watson.

Victor Dubuisson coasted to a 5-and-4 victory over Kevin Streelman in the Snead Bracket in the first round of the World Golf Championships-Accenture Match Play Championship.

Both were making their debuts in this tournament, but Streelman was the only that played like it. He won just one hole (with his only birdie) and squared five bogeys, a formula that rarely succeeds against world-class competition. For his effort, Dubuisson picked off six wins, four with birdies, and needed only 14 holes to secure a second-round match with Peter Hanson.

Victor Dubuisson is set for his inaugural appearance in the AT&T Pebble Beach National Pro-Am.

The Frenchman ranks 31st in the Official World Golf Ranking, so this could be his attempt at acclimating himself to the U.S. in preparation for the WGC-Accenture Match Play Championship in two weeks. In two 2014 starts, he owns a fifth at the Volvo Golf Champions and a 59th at the Farmers Insurance Open two weeks ago. It's probably a good idea to take a cue from his Farmers finish.
Feb 5 - 8:39 PM

Fourteen golfers gained entry into the 2014 Masters for finishing this year inside the top 50 in the Official World Golf Ranking.

Since The Nelson Mandela Championship and Thailand Golf Championship were the last events contributing to the OWGR this year, extrapolating the top 50 on Dec. 31 is possible. Thirty-six among this set are already officially eligible, but when Victor Dubuisson won the Turkish Airlines Open a month ago, he knew he'd secure a tee time at Augusta National, too. The Frenchman closes out 2013 ranked 32nd in the OWGR. (He'll add the Farmers Insurance Open in late January to a rapidly expanding U.S. slate.) The other 13 Masters qualifiers are as follows: Hideki Matsuyama (23nd in the OWGR); Thomas Björn (24th); Jamie Donaldson (26th); Gonzalo Fernández-Castaño (35th); Miguel Angel Jiménez (37th); Francesco Molinari (38th); Rickie Fowler (40th); Matteo Manassero (43rd); David Lynn (45th); Thongchai Jaidee (46th); Peter Hanson (48th); Joost Luiten (49th); Branden Grace (50th).

Victor Dubuisson held on to win the Turkish Airlines Open by two strokes for what is his first victory on the European Tour.

After sharing the lead with three others at the midpoint, the Frenchman slept on the 54-hole lead alone. He then closed with a 3-under-par 35-34=69 to post 24-under 264, two clear of runner-up Jamie Donaldson. Dubuisson parred his first nine holes today before finding four birdies to offset a lone bogey coming home. His margin of victory was defined by birdies at the last two holes. "I don't know how to describe it," he said. "I felt so much pressure on the last hole. Holing this putt on 17 was like; it was incredible ... and the birdie on 18, it's a bonus. But even on the last putt, I was feeling so much stress. After this day, it was the longest day on the course that I've ever had. I'm very proud of what I did." Donaldson carded a 9-under 32-31=63 that included eight birdies and an ace at the par-3 16th hole. Dubuisson started the week 108th in the Official World Golf Ranking and will climb to ~35th. The win also exempts him into the 2014 WGC-Bridgestone Invite.
