Victor Dubuisson is set to tee it up in the Portugal Masters on the Dom Pedro Victoria Golf Course at Vilamoura this week.
The Frenchman has long since ceased to be a simple riddle, or even a riddle within an enigma. He makes a habit of turning up late to tournaments and sometimes, of course, not turning up at all. He’s one reason the second and third reserves must a) have hope, and b) be driven to distraction. Last week Dubuisson failed to arrive at the KLM Open due to travel difficulties. Granted high wind caused flight problems, but it’s can’t be long before he cites the dog eating his passport. He closed last season with two lucrative top fives after an enigmatic campaign, perhaps this year would see a concerted effort? Instead he’s 5-for-12, with two withdrawals (once the event has started as opposed to before), and just one top 20 (T4 Trophee Hassan II). You hope he’s just wilfully awkward and that it’s not greater demons he’s fighting. Hit three 67s to finish T17 here in 2013 and (you guessed it) withdrew 12 months earlier. Sep 19 - 10:17 AM

Victor Dubuisson will make his first appearance at the KLM Open in the Netherlands since 2012 and has a new course to take on.

The Frenchman posted T12 (2011) and T58 (2012) at Hilversumsche before leaving the event off his schedule. He returns this week to try his luck on The Dutch, an inland sub-7000 yard layout with a links feel. An in-form Dubuisson would be a good fit given his strong iron play and ability to perform in the wind but there's no getting away from the fact that he's enduring a poor season. The former Ryder Cup star is languishing at 118th on the Race to Dubai and has cashed in just five of his 12 starts. A T31 in the Made In Denmark three weeks ago does offer some signs of hope but he suffered another missed cut in last week's Omega European Masters so remains a risky play.
Sep 13 - 3:18 AM

Victor Dubuisson crafted a bogey-free 5-under-par 33-33=66 in his opening lap at the Made In Denmark at Himmerland Golf & Spa Resort, coming to rest just two shots behind clubhouse leader Wade Ormsby.

That 66 shaves three shots off his lowest round of a hugely disappointing year although he's only made 10 starts and four laps of 70 or higher were enough to give him a fourth place in the Trophee Hassan II in Morocco. The former Ryder Cup star hinted that he might be in a good place again when going bogey free in a win over Bradley Dredge in last week's Paul Lawrie Match Play although a second-round exit meant he couldn't get up a head of steam. He's in position to do that here after his opening 18 which featured five birdies and 13 pars. Dubuisson set the tone with a par breaker at the first hole and then picked off further birdies on the par 5s at 4, 7 and 11. He added a final red number at 14 and rounded off with four pars to complete a fine day's work.

Victor Dubuisson went bogey-free in dumping Bradley Dredge 3-and-2 in round one of the Paul Lawrie Match Play at Golf Resort Bad Griesbach in Bavaria.

There is much work to be done, but this is a good sign for the Frenchman who has played the weekend just three times in nine attempts this season – a record that includes four missed cuts and two withdrawals. He took early control of the match with par breakers at No. 1 and No. 3. Dredge got a hole back with a winning birdie at the eighth, but Dubuisson made hay on the long holes on the back nine. A birdie-4 at the 10th restored his 2-up lead, an eagle-3 at the 12th extended it and, after Dredge pulled one back with a birdie at 14, Dubuisson closed out with a birdie-4 at No. 16. He will play Alexander Knappe in the second round.

Victor Dubuisson takes his unpredictable talents to Dundonald Links in Ayrshire this week for the Aberdeen Asset Management Scottish Open.

The former Ryder Cup star should have fond memories of Scotland having been part of Europe's winning team at Gleneagles in 2014. His career has rather stalled since and, having peaked at 15th in the world rankings, he's now 139th after missed cuts at his home Open de France and the Irish Open on his last two starts. Prior to that, Dubuisson was T24 at Wentworth and T4 in April's Trophee Hassan II so there are still flashes of good golf and in two of his last three appearances at the Scottish Open he's posted T10 at Gullane in 2015 and T17 at Castle Stuart in 2013. He was also T5 in the 2012 Alfred Dunhill Links Championship. The Frenchman is a risky play but can offer plenty of upside.
Jul 12 - 5:15 AM

After returning to the European Tour with T4 in last week's Trophee Hassan II, Victor Dubuisson jets off to China to peg it up in the Shenzhen International at Genzon GC.

The Frenchman tends to play his best golf when the engine has been running for a few weeks so his strong display in Morocco was a slight surprise even though pure talent suggested he should be a contender. It can be dangerous to use too much logic with Dubuisson but history suggests another big week could follow and he's had some notable performances in this part of the world with back-to-back top four finishes in the 2012 and 2013 China Opens. Also T17 in the BMW Masters, his one start at Genzon resulted in a WD following an opening 71. Make of that what you will but there are certainly some decent grounds for managers taking a chance on the former Ryder Cup star this week.
Apr 19 - 4:13 AM

Victor Dubuisson’s enigmatic season has continued with T4 in the Trophee Hassan II after a fourth round of 3-under-par 34-36=70 left him on 6-under 286 at Royal Golf Dar Es Salam.

The Frenchman is rarely predictable. He closed the 2016 season with two withdrawals and two top four finishes in his final five starts and 2017 has been more of the same. He missed the cut in the Dubai Desert Classic, withdrew after 18 holes of the Maybank Championship, then rocked up in Rabat and ticked off a top five finish almost without anyone noticing. He had pegged four consecutive birdies early in his third round, but then dropped four shots in the next six holes. On Sunday he was less remiss. He made two birdies on the front nine (at 1 and 8), two more on the back (at 12 and 18), with just the one dropped shot (at 15). This week as an improvement on his last visit to Morocco in 2012, when he missed the cut.
Apr 16 - 1:17 PM

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.
