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.

Victor Dubuisson enters his Ryder Cup debut at Gleneagles this week ranked 23rd in the Official World Golf Ranking.

The Frenchman really made a splash in America when he showcased his scrambling skills at the WGC-Accenture Match Play, but it was long before that when savvy gamers realized he could play. His latest team competition came in March at the EurAsia Cup where we posted a 1-2-0 record. Dubuisson will need to come out of the gates hot if he wants to continue to earn tee times on the stacked European squad.

Victor Dubuisson fired a 5-under-par 34-32=66 in the final round of the PGA Championship to join Ernie Els and Jimmy Walker in the clubhouse lead at 11-under 273.

The Frenchman was 1-over, with one bogey and six pars, through seven holes before he heated up. His final 11 holes featured four birdies and a chip-in eagle at the par-5 10th. His other highlight came on the par-4 ninth, when he holed a 15'5" birdie just before the turn at Valhalla Golf Club. Dubuisson is beginning to show a penchant for raising his hand in big events. He took Jason Day to the brink in the finale of the WGC-Accenture Match Play Championship before finishing runner-up earlier this year.

Victor Dubuisson flashed his short game again in today's second round of the PGA Championship during which he shot 3-under-par 33-35=68.

After finding only nine greens in regulation in an opening 69, he landed just 11 today, yet minimized the damage to a lone bogey at the par-4 16th hole. Elsewhere, he picked off four birdies, including at all three par 5s for the second consecutive day. His longest conversion of the second round dropped for par from 11'9" at No. 8. At 5-under 137, Dubuisson is four swings adrift of the overnight lead.

Victor Dubuisson turned in a 2-under-par 34-35=69 for his opening round of the PGA Championship and finished four strokes adrift of the clubhouse lead.

And he'll gladly take it. Consider that the Frenchman split 10 (of 14) fairways, but hit only nine greens in regulation. He suffered three bogeys, the first a 5 at the fourth hole where he buried his longest conversion of the day from 11'5", but Dubuisson also capitalized on his good looks. All five of his birdies dropped in from inside seven feet.

Victor Dubuisson's strong 2014 continued with a final-round 2-under-par 35-37=70 at The Open Championship, good for a top-10 finish.

The Frenchman's highlight of the season on the world stage remains his runner-up at the WGC-Accenture Match Play Championship, but his first top 10 in the season's third major is another big step. His last lap around Royal Liverpool included three birdies and an eagle, but he couldn't prevent three bogeys. He is a player to continue monitoring in big events.

Victor Dubuisson signed for a 4-under-par 32-36=68 in the third round of The Open Championship to establish the clubhouse lead at 8-under 208.

Dubuisson erased an early birdie at Hoylake's par-4 second with birdies on the third, fifth, sixth and seventh holes. Turning his attention towards the back nine, he traded a birdie at the 12th with a bogey on the 13th and closed with a final birdie at the par-5 18th. Considering his runner-up finish at the WGC-Accenture Match Play Championship, perhaps it isn't a surprise that the Frenchman is contending for his first major championship victory.
