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. Sep 28 - 4:50 PM

Victor Dubuisson authored a 5-under-par 32-35=67 in the third round of the 97th PGA Championship to continue his move through the field.

An opening 76 left the Frenchman way back but a 70 in round two allowed him to make the cut on the number. Playing in the third group out on Saturday, Dubuisson took advantage of a rain-softened Whistling Straits to advance to 3-under 213. He made his move early with a 13'9" conversion for an eagle-3 at No. 2 and followed it with birdies at 3, 5, 11 and 15. The Ryder Cup star split 10 (of 14) fairways and hit an impressive 15 greens in regulation. All his successful birdie putts were from inside seven feet while his only blemish occurred at 17 due to taking three swishes of the blade. He's currently T33 on the leaderboard.

With a 2-under-par 33-35=68 in his opening round of the World Golf Championships-Bridgestone Invitational, Victor Dubuisson established very early possession of the clubhouse lead.

Well, this is surprising. The first-time PGA TOUR member has made zero noise on the circuit this year. He connected a trio of top 20s in Europe in late June through mid-July, but he didn't deserve to be on anyone's radar today. Going out in the third pairing off the first tee at Firestone Country Club's South Course, Dubuisson split only five (of 14) fairways but he landed 14 greens in regulation and poured in three birdies. His longest conversion dropped for birdie from 23 feet at the par-4 ninth hole. He also poured in par saves ranging 11-16 feet at Nos. 7 and 14 to help reel in just his sixth red number in 19 rounds on TOUR this season. With this just his ninth start, Dubuisson would need to play all of the remaining six tournaments to reach the membership minimum of 15. He'd probably be allowed a waiver for playing in the Open de France, but at 203rd in the FedExCup standings, he faces a mountain to climb.

Victor Dubuisson heads to Akron, Ohio this week to make his second appearance at the World Golf Championships-Bridgestone Invitational.

Twelve months ago, the Frenchman placed T31 on his tournament debut at Firestone Country Club after shooting rounds of 74-72-71-70 so improved his score each day. After a difficult season, Dubuisson finally found his mojo with a T20 at the BMW International Open and followed it with a T12 in his home Open de France and a T10 at the Scottish Open. He's suffered another dip since then, however, with missed cuts at the Open Championship and Omega European Masters in Switzerland. Overall, the 2014 Ryder Cup star has struggled on American soil this season with missed cuts at The Masters and the U.S. Open but he did post T17 in April's Shell Houston Open.

Victor Dubuisson is rounding into form ahead of his third start in The Open Championship.

The Frenchman shook of some poor form to finish T20 in the BMW International Open in Germany, had a run at the title when T12 in his home Open de France and improved again to T10 in last week's Scottish Open. Dubuisson played in the 2010 Open at St. Andrews as an amateur (missed cut) and turned pro straight after. His only other start in this event resulted in a T9 at Hoylake last year and he followed that with a T7 in the PGA Championship at Valhalla before making his Ryder Cup debut a month later. Adding to his appeal is a strong record at St. Andrews in the Alfred Dunhill Links Championship. He shot 62-68 in the two rounds played over the Old Course in the 2012 event to finish T5 and also closed 65-69 there when T27 in 2011. He has an early tee-time (08:11) on Thursday morning alongside American Billy Horschel and England's Ross Fisher.

Victor Dubuisson tacked on a 1-under-par 35-35=70 to his opening 68 and shares the lead at the halfway mark of the Alstom Open de France.

The Frenchman shares top spot on 4-under 138 with Germany's Martin Kaymer and Spain's Rafa Cabrera-Bello and that trio will battle it out in a three-ball on Saturday with organizers hoping to quicken up play due to the threat of thunderstorms. Dubuisson hit 6-under after making an eagle-2 at 6 when holing his approach from 107 yards but gave those shots back with successive bogeys at 8 and 9. He took outright possession of the lead again with a birdie at 12 but dropped another shot at 17. After a difficult season, this is the perfect time and place for the Ryder Cup star to come back to life and he puts the return to form down to simply playing more golf. The 25-year-old took part in just five tournaments between January and April but this is his third event in a row and seventh since the start of May. Dubuisson hit only half the greens in regulation on Friday but is 12-for-16 in scrambling so far and his famed short game magic could make the difference this weekend.

Victor Dubuisson delighted the locals by taking a share of the clubhouse lead with a 3-under-par 35-33=68 in round one of the Alstom Open de France.

The Frenchman sank a 10-foot putt at his final hole, the par-5 9th, to match the target set by Bernd Wiesberger. Dubuisson was quiet early on, playing his first eight holes in 1-over due to a bogey-6 at 14. He made amends with a birdie at 18 and circled three more at 3, 5 and 7 to join the lead. This is another positive sign for the Ryder Cup star, who snapped a poor run of form with a top 20 in Germany last week.

Victor Dubuisson will hope to put on a show for his home fans at this week's Alstom Open de France at Le Golf National.

He's 4-for-5 at the Paris venue as a pro but has struggled to put four rounds together. That's highlighted by his best finish of T18 in 2013 when he carded 68-75-76-66. It's a similar story with his current form which shows pockets of good play but no title challenge. However, thanks to twins 67s in the middle two rounds, he did post T20 in Germany last week which was his best strokeplay finish since a T17 at the Shell Houston Open in early April. With Le Golf National hosting the 2018 Ryder Cup and Dubuisson desperate to be part of Team Europe again, he certainly has huge incentive this week.
Jul 1 - 7:37 AM

Victor Dubuisson bogeyed five of his final nine holes and carded a 4-over-par 34-40=74 on day one of the U.S. Open at Chambers Bay.

The Frenchman's woes continue although, for a while at least, it looked as if he was playing himself back into form following three missed cuts in his last four stroke-play events. A run of three birdies in five holes from the 14th put him in credit despite bogeys at 11 and 16 but his second nine was a train wreck as he dropped shots at 1, 2, 7, 8 and 9 to slip nine off the pace. The Ryder Cup star missed just one fairway but was loose with his irons, hitting only 10 greens in regulation.

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.

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.
