Julien Quesne will make a seventh appearance in the Omega European Masters at Crans-sur-Sierre GC in Switzerland this week.
The Frenchman is 6-for-6 in the past and, with one blip, his history there is one of gradual improvement. On debut in 2010 he was T70, but a second round 67 hinted he liked the track. He proved that with T11 two years later, when he was T1 at halfway. He pegged 66s in both 2013 and 2014 as he logged T41 and T29. Progress continued in 2015 with T24 and he peaked last year when first and final round 65s helped him to T5. This is his sixth successive year on the main circuit and if he wants a seventh without a return to Q School he needs a strong push to the finish line. He’s 112th on the Race to Dubai and his one top 15 finish was a lucrative one (in the Irish Open). Tue, Sep 5, 2017 08:54:00 AM

Julien Quesne returns to the Paul Lawrie Match Play after a two year gap, ready to tee it up at new venue the Golf Resort Bad Griesbach in Bavaria.

He’s a two-time course visitor, although he’s never broke 70 in his four laps as he has collected a pair of missed cuts. It’s also been a tough year with just two bright spots. T18 in the China Open had him hopeful on Twitter, but it took until the Irish Open for those good vibes to blossom (T8). Otherwise he has missed 12 cuts, including both of the last two tournaments he has played. 104th on the Race to Dubai he made 65% of his point in Ireland alone. Defeated Tom Lewis and Jeez Milkha Singh in this event on his only previous start, before Chris Wood knocked him out. He plays Marcel Siem in the round of 64.

At the third time of asking Julien Quesne will try to make a cut in the Porsche European Open at new venue, the North Course at Green Eagle GC in Hamburg.

The 2017 season is 17 starts in for the Frenchman and he’s had very little to celebrate. In fact he’s made a mere five cuts, yet the good news is that he’s been fortunate enough to peak in decent enough weeks to not be in a desperate spot in the rankings (99th on the Race to Dubai). His T33-T18 in the two Chinese events coincided with good vibes on his Twitter, but five missed weekends followed. T62 at home in France offered hope and T8 in the Irish Open (Rolex Series) is what gives him a position with which to move forward and turn the season round. A solid parkland performer, although tends to prefer tree-lined to modern designs.

Julien Quesne torched Portstewart GC for an 8-under-par 33-31=64 in Saturday's third round at the Dubai Duty Free Irish Open, leaping 25 spots up the leaderboard to solo fifth.

At 14-under 202, that's just three swings behind joint-leaders Jon Rahm and Daniel Im. The Frenchman tied the course record thanks to a prolific burst of scoring coming home when he birdied five of the final six holes. He'd started his move with a first circle of the day at No. 2 before he made further gains at 5 and 7. A par-birdie-par start to his back nine then gave way to a rush of red numbers as he ticked 13, 14, 15, 16 and 18. The sequence was only broken by a frustrating bogey-5 at 17. That inward 31 has put Quesne right back in the tournament and he'll be seeking a third European Tour title Sunday. He'd come into this week having missed nine of his previous 12 cuts while owning Irish Open form of MC-MC-MC-69 so conventional logic offered no clues about this strong performance so far.

After another missed cut at the BMW PGA Championship, Julien Quesne will hope to tap into some impressive past form in Sweden when he pegs it up in this week's Nordea Masters.

The Frenchman has now missed seven of 10 cuts on the European Tour this season although he did play some decent stuff in the Far East during April when T33 at the Shenzhen International and T18 at the Volvo China Open. He was off the pace at Wentworth after shooting rounds of 77-78 but Sweden could be the place for him to get his mojo back. In the last three editions of this event he's posted 25-11-9 and before that he took fourth place in The Princess, a Challenge Tour event held in Sweden. This will be Quesne's first look at Barseback Golf & Country Club where the Nordea Masters is being staged for the first time since 2009.

Julien Quesne has strong course credentials at Genzon GC and he’ll need them this week in the Shenzhen International.

The Frenchman has taken a liking to teeing it up in China. In fact 14 visits to the country have seen him make 12 cuts, count eight top 25s, four of them top tens. Moreover, the form is specific to Genzon – very specific in fact. He was T19 in the 2014 China Open, T4 (with a final round 65) in this event in 2015 and T13 this time last year. The flipside of all that good news is his form: he’s 1-for-6 this season with that only weekend showing an underwhelming T49 in Abu Dhabi. After five highly lucrative years on Tour, which have seen him win twice and never finish outside the top 80 in the Race to Dubai, he currently dwells at 217th and in dire need of a boost to the system.

Julien Quesne made light of his previous struggles in the Abu Dhabi HSBC Championship by firing a 5-under-par 35-32=67 in round one, good enough for T6 on the live leaderboard.

Until today, the Frenchman had never broken 71 in his nine laps at Abu Dhabi GC and was just 1-for-4 in the European Tour's traditional start to the calendar yet. For a while Quesne's usual inconsistencies here hampered him as he traded circles at 10 and 15 with squares at 14 and 17. But another gain at the 18th sparked a birdie blitz of five red numbers in six holes. The burst ended with a dropped another shot at 6 but he had one final birdie up his sleeve at 8 before closing with a par. So far, it's the joint best afternoon round and puts him just three behind leader Henrik Stenson.

Julien Quesne begins his 2017 season with a week at the UBS Hong Kong Open hosted again at the traditional Fanling track.

In theory the 36-year-old Frenchman is a great fit for this week, as his best work comes on short, fiddly tracks and Asian conditions have never bothered him either. His wins came at Aloha (short, fiddly), Torino (tree-lined); he has top tens at Delhi GC, Kuala Lumpur CC, Royal Selangor GC and Tomson GC. So what of Hong Kong GC itself? His debut in 2012 saw him finish T22, an effort stymied by a second round 72. Two years later he pegged 67-67 to sit T5 at halfway before his weekend work of 72-71 saw him slip back to T35. He ended the 2016 season in need of a reboot, as he tossed in an 80 and an 83 at the Nedbank Golf Challenge, then marred three good rounds in the DP World Tour Championship (67-68-69) with a second round 76. It’s a one week start to his 2017 campaign so he must fancy he can do something. If he can put four rounds together he has it in him to contend. Winners here often like Wentworth and he’s not been out the top ten there in the last two years.

Julien Quesne set the clubhouse target on day one of the DP World Tour Championship, Dubai after sprinkling birdies at four of the Earth Course's final five holes in a 5-under-par 35-32=67.

The Frenchman entered the week ranked 44th in the elite 60-man field and struggling for form after shooting middle rounds of 80-83 at last week's Nedbank Challenge in South Africa. But he had it going today in a morning lap featuring eight birdies against three bogeys. His set included circles at all four par 5s (2, 7, 14 and 18). The latter two bookended a birdie burst which included red numbers at 15 and 17 and took him into the lead. This matches Quesne's lowest round at Jumeirah Esates. That came on day three last year although he followed it with a 77 to finish T53. He was T47 on debut in 2013.

Julien Quesne has two top 20s from three starts at the Turkish Airlines Open and returns there for another crack this week.

The Frenchman was T12 in the inaugural event in 2013 and also T20 last year although both those results came at the Montgomerie Maxx. This year the event, which kick-starts the three-tournament Final Series, takes place at the par 72 Regnum Carya Golf & Spa Resort. Quesne is a healthy 36th on the Race to Dubai after five top 10s this season so his place in the season-ending DP World Tour Championship (top 60) is safe. His best RTD finish is 2013 so he'll want to use this closing stretch to set the new mark as high as he can.

Julien Quesne slots in at 36th on the Race to Dubai ahead of this week's Portugal Masters in Vilamoura.

The Frenchman has twice made the top 50 in Europe's money list but remains on course to beat his high of 42nd set in 2013. He's posted three top fives this season, the most recent T5 at the Omega European Masters in Switzerland last month. Quesne ranked second for Putting Average when T32 in last week's British Masters in England and will hope to carry that hot blade to Portugal where birdies are very much the order of the day. He's 4-for-5 at Oceanico Victoria although hasn't finished better than T46 (2013) when he opened with a 66.

2013 Italian Open champion Julien Quesne returns to the event at Golf Club Milano after missing last year's renewal.

This is the fifth straight year on tour for the 36-year-old who has made the top 80 in the rankings every time, but, at 36th this year, he is on track to complete his best performance to date, beating his 42nd in 2013. He has a curious record in the tournament, going 1-for-4. The key is that when he did make the weekend he made the best of it, winning in 2013 at Torino GC when a final round 67 saw him leap out of a 54-hole tie for ninth to overhaul leader Marcus Fraser. He didn't play last year at Golf Club Milano, but there is plenty of reason to think he might like the track. On the one hand he has always thrived on tight, tree-lined tracks. On the other last year's winner, Rikard Karlberg, has stunning form at Delhi, an excellent record at Bro Hof Slott and was second at Wentworth this year. If that is any sort of guide to finding successful players this week Quesne sticks out like a sort thumb, having made the top ten at all three.

Julien Quesne thrashed a morning 5-under-par 34-31=65 in his first round at the Omega European Masters in Switzerland and is just a single shot behind the lead of compatriot Mike Lorenzo-Vera and American Paul Peterson.

The Frenchman is a reliable performer at Crans-sur-Sierre, making the cut on all five previous visits. Today's stroll in the Swiss Alps didn't get off to the best of starts as he mixed two birdies (3 and 5) with two bogeys (1 and 8) to stay even par with 10 holes to play. But a circle at 9 proved the catalyst and he splashed further red at 10, 12, 13 and 14 to match his lowest round at the course, a Friday 65 which helped him claim T11 in 2012. Quesne, who finished T55 at the Olympics in Rio, found 8 (of 13) fairways, hit 15 greens in regulation and took 27 swishes on the greens.

Julien Quesne returns to Crans-sur-Sierre GC for a sixth crack at the Omega European Masters this week.

The Frenchman might be one of the most underestimated performers on the European Tour. Maybe not a major contender, but a consistent one? Definitely. The 36-year-old is in his fifth straight year on tour, has never finished worse than 80th in the Race to Dubai rankings and at 39th this year he on track to beat his previous best of 42nd. He's achieved that with seven top 25 finishes including T4 in the lucrative BMW PGA Championship, which he briefly threatened to win during the final round. His Crans record is solid if unspectacular: 5-for-5 with a best of T11 in 2012 when had the solo halfway lead after a round two 65.

Julien Quesne makes his sixth start in this week's BMW International Open at Gut Larchenhof.

Two starts on the course have reaped only T66-T31, but on both occasions the Frenchman improved all week after making a slow start (75-71). Last year at Eichenried he placed T20. He’s ticking along nicely this season, notching top four finishes at the Maybank Championship Malaysia and BMW PGA Championship, then adding a T25 in his last start at the Nordea Masters. It might be a slight concern that he’s never once finished top 20 on a Jack Nicklaus layout.
