The bookmakers don't rate his chances but Victor Dubuisson has much in his favor at this week's Maybank Championship hosted by the Saujana G&CC in Kuala Lumpur.
The Frenchman made his seasonal debut last week in the Dubai Desert Classic and after opening with a level-par 72 he struggled to 75 in the high wind of Friday morning. It wasn't a disastrous effort by any means. Prior to that we had seen him back to near his best at the end of last season, when T3 in the Nedbank Challenge and then T4 in the DP World Tour Championship. That's really good form. Moreover his only two visits to KL have reaped T11 and T4 in the 2012 and 2013 Malaysian Opens. With form on grainy greens, tree-lined courses and humid venues, including a combination of all three, he's got it in him to be a force this week. Feb 7 - 7:08 AM

Victor Dubuisson dusts off his clubs for the first time since late November and tees it up in his fourth Omega Dubai Desert Classic.

The enigmatic Frenchman ended 2016 on a high with third place at the Nedbank Golf Challenge and fourth at the DP World Tour Championship. The latter was also in Dubai and represented his third top four finish at the Earth Course while two years ago he was T4 in Abu Dhabi so his form in the United Arab Emirates has been excellent. The exception to the rule is his form in this event. Dubuisson has played it three times, finishing T31 on debut but missing the cut on his only two other appearances. The last of those was 2013 so presumably he decided after that he wasn't going to keep it on his schedule. He's back for more this year though and having opened with 68s in two of his three starts in this event it could be premature to think that he can't perform at this venue.

Victor Dubuisson and Romain Langasque finished T2 at the World Cup of Golf after storming Kingston Heath Golf Club with a final round 9-under-par 31-32=63 which gave France a total for the week of 16-under 272.

The French were ultimately four shots back of the winner Denmark, but midway through the back nine the pair were briefly only one back, the closest any of the pursuers got. The bogey-free lap witnessed four red numbers on the front nine, coming in pairs at 4 and 5, then 7 and 8. On the back nine they bettered that, ticking four in four from the 12th. At 13 and 15 Dubuisson's approach work was magnificent, hitting his approaches to kick-in range and he repeated the trick at the final hole to confirm the best finish by the French team in the tournament's history, they shared second with China and the U.S.A. For Dubuisson it is also a third top four finish in a row, a fine conclusion to a misfiring year.

The French duo of Victor Dubuisson and Romain Langasque share T2 after the opening foursomes in the World Cup of Golf after combining for a 2-under-par 33-37=70 at Kingston Heath on Thursday.

After a poor year, Dubuisson has really found form in recent weeks and showed that again on day one in Australia as he and his 21-year-old teammate ended the first 18 holes just one shot behind leaders Spain. Langasque's superb approach to the opening hole set up Dubuisson to tap in for birdie at 1 and they repeated the double act at 9. Another circle at 10 suggested France would be the team to catch going into Friday's first set of fourballs but they dropped shots at 11 and 12 to slip back. A fourth birdie of the day at 15 after a fine tee-shot from Dubuisson followed by two pars allowed them to finish T2 alongside the United States and China. France finished third in this event in both 2003 and 2007 so are again in position to have another crack at winning the trophy for a first time.

After ending his season with back-to-back top four finishes, Victor Dubuisson will represent France in this week's World Cup of Golf at Kingston Heath in Melbourne, Australia.

Dubuisson, who was T3 in the Nedbank Golf Challenge and T4 in the DP World Tour Championship after leading through 54 holes, teams up with youngster Romain Langasque. If that name rings a distant bell, it's because the 21-year-old teed it up in this year's Masters at Augusta National after winning the 2015 Amateur Championship at Carnoustie. He played all four rounds as well, posting an impressive T39 after fighting back from a Saturday 83 with a closing 68. Langasque played most of his golf this year on the Challenge Tour and finished 9th on Europe's second tier. Dubuisson represented his country in the 2013 World Cup at nearby Royal Melbourne alongside Gregory Bourdy, the duo finishing T7. France have never won the trophy but have been prominent in recent years with third place finishes in both 2003 (Kiawah Island) and 2007 (Mission Hills).

Victor Dubuisson thrashed an 8-under-par 32-32=64 in round three of the European Tour's season-ending DP World Championship in Dubai, leaping nine spots and taking a one-shot lead with 18 holes to play.

At 13-under 203, he's a stroke clear of Nicolas Colsaerts, Matt Fitzpatrick and Tyrrell Hatton while Rafa Cabrera-Bello, Lee Westwood and Francesco Molinari are two back. After a birdie at 2, the Frenchman's round took flight when he drained his second shot at the par-4 5th hole for eagle. Following a bogey at 6, he rounded off his front nine at the Earth Course with circles at 8 and 9 and then hit the accelerator down the closing stretch with birdies at 14, 15, 16 and 18 taking him two clear of previous clubhouse leader Rafa Cabrera-Bello. That lead was later narrowed to one. After a poor year, Dubuisson dropped hints about a return to his best with T3 in last week's Nedbank Golf Challenge. He also has a reputation as a course horse (both his European Tour wins came at the same venue in Turkey) and this is one of his favorite layouts (13-2-3 last three years). Put those converging trends together and the former Ryder Cup star is justifying the faith that many managers put in him.

Victor Dubuisson styled a 4-under-par 34-34=68 to finish T3 in the Nedbank Golf Challenge at Gary Player Country Club on 7-under 281.

With the tournament becoming part of the European Tour's Final Series there has been a quirk on the 2016 schedule: the Nedbank has featured twice, as the first and penultimate start – and the Frenchman took full advantage, finishing T4 back in December before going one better this week. He made sure of it in the final lap with four birdies on the front nine at 1, 2, 5 and 7, but had to withstand bogeys at the 3rd and 9th. The return to the clubhouse was a more controlled affair, including seven pars and birdies at 13 and 14. He finished in a tie for third with four others, seven shots adrift of the runaway winner Alex Noren. Dubuisson accumulated 92% of his earnings from regular tour events (non major and WGC) at the two Nedbank renewals.

Victor Dubuisson posted the early clubhouse target of 3-under-par 34-35=69 on day one of the Nedbank Golf Challenge in South Africa.

We're used to seeing the unpredictable Frenchman thrive at this time of year as both his two European Tour wins came in November. They were the 2013 and 2015 Turkish Airlines Opens, an event where he posted T47 last week when it moved to a new course. Dubuisson was T4 in this event last December and again showed his penchant for playing well on courses where he's done well previously with a lap of Gary Player Country Club that featured five birdies against two bogeys. He set the tone with a a pair of par breakers at 1 and 2 before wiping out a bogey at 8 with a birdie at 9. He picked up another birdie at 10 and responded to a dropped shot at 16 with a final splash of red at 17. At 73rd on the Race to Dubai, the former Ryder Cup star needs a big week to make the top 60 who go through to the season-ending DP World Tour Championship in Dubai.

Victor Dubuisson ended his defense of the Turkish Airlines Open with a lap of 3-under-par 34-34=68 to end the week T47 on 3-under 281.

It's been a poor season for the Frenchman since he opened with T4 in the Nedbank Golf Challenge and a return to the scene of two of his career victories was no prompt for a change in direction. His final round included six birdies and three bogeys; the 68 was his best effort of the week, but he was never part of the narrative.

Two-time Turkish Airlines Open champion Victor Dubuisson will tee it up at new venue Regnum Carya Golf & Spa Resort this week.

The Frenchman is 71st in the Race to Dubai, but his T4 in the first week of the season, at the Nedbank Golf Challenge, is the only reason - the €254,536 he earned that week represents 63% of his seasonal earnings. Of course, one good week makes many seasons, but V-Dub seems to have taken that notion to the nth degree and taken the year off. In 9 regular European Tour starts since the Nedbank he has: four missed cuts, three withdrawals, a T66 and a T60. If that abysmal record is to turn round Turkey is as good a bet as anywhere. He won this event in 2013 and 2015, finishing T15 with a closing 64 in 2014. A new host course will present a problem, but it is not a significantly different type of course.

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.

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.
