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.

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.

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.

Victor Dubuisson has withdrawn from this week's Maybank Malaysian Open, citing an illness.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

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.

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.

Victor Dubuisson withdrew from this week's Nedbank Golf Challenge due to a back injury.

Brendon Todd replaced the Frenchman in the 30-man field at Gary Player Country Club in Sun City, South Africa. Dubuisson called it quits two rounds into the World Golf Championships-HSBC Champions on Nov. 7, also with a sore back. However, he sprinted to fifth place in the Race to Dubai with a T15 and T2 in the final two legs of that season-long series. For the time being, the 24-year-old is entered in the preliminary field of the Thailand Golf Championship on Dec. 11-14.

Victor Dubuisson opened his title defense of the Turkish Airlines Open with a 5-over-par 38-39=77.

Back inside the ropes after a back injury forced him to retire at the midpoint of last week's World Golf Championships-HSBC Champions, Dubuisson split seven (of 13) fairways and hit 12 greens in regulation at The Montgomerie Max Royal in Antalya, but needed 34 putts to complete the round. The Frenchman picked off two birdies, but also squared five bogeys and a double. He signed his card sitting T71 in the 78-man field and 14 strokes off the overnight lead of Miguel Angel Jiménez.

Victor Dubuisson withdrew from the World Golf Championships-HSBC Champions after his second round due to an injury to his lower back.

This is late in being relayed, but nonetheless accurate. The Frenchman completed 36 holes in 9-over-par 76-77=153 and sat 19 strokes off Graeme McDowell's 36-hole lead. This is Dubuisson's first mid-tournament WD in 12 PGA TOUR starts. Consider him a question mark for his title defense at next week's Turkish Airlines Open.

Victor Dubuisson will be a PGA TOUR member in the 2014-15 season.

The 24-year-old from France is as much cult hero as he is mystery man, but we're going to see more of him now that he'll have to make 15 starts to fulfill membership. Dubuisson was the first to accept Special Temporary Membership in 2013-14. He quieted a bit after the spectacular runner-up finish at the Match Play, but picked off top 10s in the final two majors. Overall, his 662 non-member FedExCup points (in 10 starts) would have ranked 78th among members. Further adding to his legend, he then went 2-0-1 as a rookie on the victorious European Ryder Cup team. Skeptics are waiting for the sky to fall, but his mountain of work over the last 12 months has been astonishingly strong and consistent. There's zero chance that he sneaks up on anyone this coming season.

Victor Dubuisson and Zach Johnson halved the final singles match of the Ryder Cup.

The outcome of the Ryder Cup had already been decided, but let the record books show the final tally to be 16½-11½ in favor of the Europeans. Dubuisson was a Ryder Cup rookie, though he didn't play like one this week. While he only competed in three sessions, his 2-0-1 record bodes well for his future in this event. On the opposite end of the spectrum, Johnson was a disappointing 0-2-1 for the U.S. squad. The next edition of the Ryder Cup will take place at Hazeltine National Golf Course in Chaska, Minnesota, in 2016. Europe will be the three-time defending champs.

Victor Dubuisson and Graeme McDowell upended Keegan Bradley and Phil Mickelson 3 and 2 in their foursomes match at the 40th Ryder Cup.

And the Euros did it in style. G-Mac poured in a mid-range right-to-lefter on the green at the par-5 16th for birdie and the victory. It was just the third birdie by either side in the match. The first one got the scoring started when Europe circled a 4 at the second hole. The second birdie dropped in at the par-5 ninth to give the Americans the win. Otherwise, it was a grind-it-out-and-survive kind of session finale. Europe picked off wins with pars at 4, 5 10 and 12, while the U.S. won the par-4 eighth and 13th holes, also with pars. This marked Dubuisson's debut in the competition. After trouncing the visitors in fourcomes, 3½-½, his squad will sleep on a 5-3 lead. The formats on Saturday will be played in the same order as today's. The morning session will feature four four-ball matches. They will be trailed by four games of foursomes in the afternoon.
