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. Jul 13 - 4:43 PM

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.

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.
Apr 2 - 2:43 PM

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.
Mar 31 - 1:43 PM

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.
Feb 20 - 6:21 PM

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.
Feb 16 - 10:45 AM

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.
