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. Sep 13 - 5:20 AM

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.

Julien Quesne completed back to back top tens at the BMW PGA Championship after a final round level-par 33-39=72 over the West Course at Wentworth.

T8 last year, the Frenchman closed out a 6-under 282 total for T4 this season after a round in which he was often in contention for the title until pushing for victory led him to ship shots on the back nine. Initially he had challenged with calm assurance after marking red numbers at 1, 4 and 6. The first error came at 8, with a failure to save par from off the green, and more dropped shots followed at 11, 13 and 16. He did make birdie at 12 during that stretch, but it wasn't enough to maintain his challenge. "I played good golf today," he said afterwards. "I finish top five so a great week, playing amazing golf."

Julien Quesne blasted a second-best of the day 5-under-par 33-34=67 to end the third round just 4 shots back of the lead at the BMW PGA Championship in T5.

The Frenchman finished T8 at Wentworth 12 months ago thanks to a brace of 68s at the weekend and he has a chance of improving on that effort Sunday after a round that saw him drop just one shot on No. 15. He found 15 greens in regulation as he notched red numbers at 5, 9, 12, 16, 17 and 18. That hot finish vaulted him into a six way tie for 5th, three swings back of leader Scott Hend on 6-under 210.

Julien Quesne crafted a fine 4-under-par 34-34=68 at the Hero Indian Open, moving to 6-under 138 and T9 at the halfway stage.

The Frenchman had made the turn in 3-under on Thurday only to stumble back in 37, and on Friday it initially seemed reverse gear would continue to be employed when he opened with a bogey-5 on No. 10. But an eagle-3 on the 14th changed his fortunes, as did birdie-4s on each of the other three par-5s, helping him cruise into the top ten. He had a marked improvement in his long game to thank: having hit just 9 greens in regulation Thursday, he made 16 of them on Friday.

Julien Quesne will look to ignite his season at this week's Omega Dubai Desert Classic.

The Frenchman ended 2015 with two top 10s and a further top 20 in his final five events to finish 46th on the Race to Dubai, just four spots off his career high set two years earlier. Quesne, who picked off seven top 10s last season, has missed the cut in the two previous 'Desert Swing' events and failed to break par in any of his four rounds. In two starts at the Dubai Desert Classic, he was T48 on debut in 2014 after opening with a 66 while last year he suffered a DQ after handing in a first-round 75.

Julien Quesne slots in at 44th on the Race to Dubai heading into this week's season-ending DP World Tour Championship at Jumeirah Golf Estates.

The Frenchman's highest RTD ranking is 42nd in 2013 so one obvious goal this week is to jump up at least three spots to better that mark. Although he hasn't added to his two previous European Tour wins, Quesne has posted a career-high seven top 10 finishes this season, the latest coming in last week's BMW Masters in China where he closed with a 66 to post T9. As for this week's venue, the Earth course, Quesne finished T47 on his only visit in 2013.

Julien Quesne pured a bogey-free 5-under-par 32-35=67 on day one of the Turkish Airlines Open at the Montgomerie Maxx Royal.

That's better. The Frenchman posted rounds of 79-78 on the weekend in Portugal last time out but found his rhythm again in Turkey on Thursday to show that he'd overcome his 36-hole blip. Quesne piped 10 (of 13) fairways, hit 14 greens in regulation and was 4-for-4 in scrambling on his opening lap, with five birdies and 13 pars lifting him to T4 at close of play. That's six behind leader Jaco Van Zyl. Today's 67 featured birdies at 3, 4, 7, 10 and 15 and matched his opening round at the 2013 event which helped Quesne finish T12.

Julien Quesne will hope to shake off a poor weekend at the Portugal Masters when he takes part in the Turkish Airlines Open.

The Frenchman shot 79-78 over the final two rounds in Portugal to spoil a solid opening and that eventual finish of T72 came after he'd posted an encouraging T9 in the previous week's British Masters. Presuming it's a blip, Quesne could be a legitimate pick for gamers at the Montgomerie Maxx Royal as he finished T12 in the inaugural event two years ago after shooting four rounds in the 60s. A T74 last year shows that you're not exactly guaranteeing reliability if you get him on board.

Julien Quesne is 55th on the Race To Dubai going into this week's Alfred Dunhill Links Championship in Scotland.

The Frenchman has banked five top 10s from 21 starts this season with a best of T4 at the Shenzhen International in April. Having not played a strokeplay event since July, it wasn't a big surprise to see him miss the cut at last week's Porsche European Open. He won't have that same excuse here. Quesne did post T20 in this event two years ago but has missed the cut in his other three starts at the pro-am tournament which is played at St. Andrews (two rounds), Carnoustie and Kingsbarns.

Julien Quesne put it in reverse on his second nine in a 1-under-par 33-38=71 in round two of the Lyoness Open.

Starting the day at 3-under, the Frenchman picked off birdies at 12, 16, 18 and 1 to elevate himself up to tied second place. But a bogey at 2 stopped his momentum and he dropped further shots at 7 and 9 to slide back to 4-under 140 at the midpoint. That's now eight swings behind leader Grégory Bourdy. Quesne hit 14 greens in regulation at Diamond Country Club on Friday but was just 1-for-4 in scrambling.

Julien Quesne carded a 5-under-par 32-35=67 to take a one-shot advantage after 36 holes of the Volvo China Open.

The Frenchman leads Peter Uihlein and defending champion Alexander Levy by a single stroke after an excellent display at Tomson Shanghai Pudong Golf Club on Friday took him to 8-under 136 at the midpoint. The two-time European Tour winner split 12 (of 14) fairways and hit 14 greens in regulation. He also went 4-for-4 in scrambling. Quesne is clearly in a groove after a T4 in Shenzhen last week and was flawless on his opening nine with five pars and birdies at 2, 4, 7 and 9. He added another pair of par breakers at 13 and 14 before swallowing his only bogey of the day at 17. "I played much better today, so that was the main reason for my good score," said Quesne. "I felt very comfortable and hardly missed any shots, so it was a very good day all round. My performance last week definitely helps build the confidence, so I felt good at the start of the week and I’m still feeling good now, but there’s a long way to go."

Julien Quesne posted a 3-under-par 34-35=69 in the first round of the Volvo China Open at Tomson Shanghai Pudong Golf Club.

It's no surprise to see the Frenchman on page one of the leaderboard again as he closed with a 65 to take a share of fourth spot in last week's Shenzhen International. That was his second top 10 in four events. Starting at 10, Quesne circled birdies at three of his first five holes before suffering a dip with a bogey-6 at the 18th and dropping another shot at the third. However, he got those back with birdies at the fifth and eighth to pull within a shot of the lead. On the stats, the 34-year-old split just 8 (of 14) fairways and hit only 11 greens in regulation but he went 5-for-7 in scrambling and took just 25 putts.
