With three birdies in his final four holes, Marc Warren completed a 6-under-par 34-32=66 in round two of the Dubai Duty Free Irish Open to take a share of the 36-hole lead with Danny Willett on 8-under 136, one ahead of Rory McIlroy.
The Scot has cashed just three times in nine starts in a disappointing start to the year, with a T19 in Thailand his only top 30. But he found his mojo today with a lap of the K Club which featured seven birdies against a single bogey. Warren circled red at 13, 15 and 18 on his opening nine and added another at 3 before dropping his only shot of the day two holes later. But with par breakers at 6, 8 and 9 he surged to the top of the leaderboard. Warren upped his fairways hit count from 5 to 11 on Friday but only managed to hit 10 greens in regulation. A hot short game is keeping the errors off his card and he was 6-for-8 in scrambling in round two (11-for-15 overall). The 35-year-old has three top 20s from nine starts at the Irish Open, with a best of fourth place at County Louth in 2009. "I feel as if I'm starting to get into a little bit more of a run now," he said after the round, "so hopefully that's the reason for the good form and hopefully it continues." May 20 - 8:35 AM

Marc Warren will hope to find a spark in this week's Shenzhen International at Genzon GC after missing four of his last five cuts on the European Tour.

The Scot has finished in the top 30 on the Race to Dubai for the last two years and looked to be playing the most consistent golf of his career but he's hit a bump in the road in recent times. In 2016 he's cashed just twice in seven tournaments and his struggles continues in last week's Open de Espana when shooting 75-77. He also made a halfway exit at Genzon on his only start there in 2014 although his last competitive round in China was a 66 that lifted him to T37 in November's BMW Masters. Another spot of encouragement is that Warren was T19 in last month's Thailand Classic on his most recent trip to the Far East.

After showing some improved form in last week's True Thailand Classic, Marc Warren will look to kick on further in the Hero Indian Open.

Since a pair of top four finishes on home soil (Scottish Open and Paul Lawrie Match Play) last summer, Warren hadn't registered a single top 20. He was also just 1-for-4 on this year's Race to Dubai before he finally showed signs of life with a T19 in last week's True Thailand Classic at Black Mountain. This will be the Scot's first start in an Indian Open but he's cashed on all four previous visits to the country, a run which took in the 2008 Johnnie Walker Classic and three successive Avantha Masters (2011-2013). His best result was a T29 in 2012.

Marc Warren made the top 10 on his last trip to Malaysia but is struggling to find another ahead of his return to the country this week.

Warren lines up in this week's Maybank Championship Malaysia without so much as a top 30 in any of his last 13 worldwide starts. He has managed to cash in 10 of those and was T35 in Qatar two starts ago but the Scot still can't change gears and get himself on a leaderboard. Warren was T9 in last year's Malaysian Open but faces a new tournament and a new course this week.

In contention for the title twelve months ago, Marc Warren returns to the Omega Dubai Desert Classic hunting a return to the right end of the leaderboard.

The Scot must be feeling a little frustrated at present. He’s 13-for-15 coming into the week, but has to peer all the way back to the Bridgestone Invitational for his last top 30 finish - and even that was T25. Perhaps the prompt he needs is a return to Emirates GC where last year he shot 66-65 in the first two rounds to find himself solo second and playing the third round with Rory McIlroy. Unfortunately he made 73-71 on the weekend to drift to T13, one of three top 20s he has reaped in the event, to put alongside six missed cuts. It might, however, be interesting to note that last year he ranked second for putts per round - and was first in that category in 2013 when T17. It does appear that he has found something on the Emirates GC greens.

Long term visitor to the Abu Dhabi HSBC Golf Championship Marc Warren is still hunting a first top 25 finish.

A round one 68 in 2014 did leave the Scot handily placed at T4, but it was quite a contrast to his long term record in Abu Dhabi and he duly faded all week into T37. His record Is 3-for-10, which reflects a general struggle in the Middle East. He was 2nd in the Qatar Masters 12 months ago but that remains his only top ten finish in 31 Middle East starts (14-for-31). Since finishing fourth in the Scottish Open in mid-July he has missed only one cut, however he hasn’t once broke the top 20 in that period.
Jan 19 - 2:30 PM

Marc Warren is 18th in the Race To Dubai going into this week's Turkish Airlines Open at the Montgomerie Maxx Royal.

Going into the opening event of the four-tournament Final Series, the Scot remains on course to post his highest finish on the RTD after setting a new mark of 26th last season although he'll be slightly disappointed by his play over the past few months. Warren has struggled to string four rounds together, hence five finishes between T33 and T48 in his last six starts. This week's course might help him get back on track as he posted T7 there in the inaugural edition in 2013. Warren, who has three top four finishes this season, also took T39 last year.

Marc Warren toured the Marquess course in 6-under-par 34-31=65 to set the clubhouse target on day one of the British Masters at Woburn.

Warren kept a bogey off his card this morning, finding birdies at 14 and 16 on his opening nine and adding further par breakers at 1, 3, 5 and 7. "Round a golf course as tree-lined as this there is danger on every hole so I'd probably say the way I drove the hole on the front nine which was my back nine, I felt as if I set up the holes really well," said the Scot. "I hit a lot of fairways. I've got a new driver in the bag this week as well so it was nice to see how it was going under the gun." Warren shares top spot with England's Lee Slattery.

Last year's Made In Denmark winner Marc Warren will bid to win the trophy again at Himmerland Golf & Spa resort this week.

Warren paved the way for victory in 2014 by shooting the best round of the day in Saturday's strong winds, a 66, and followed it with a 68 to come home two shots clear of Bradley Dredge. The Scot crept back into the world's top 50 with a T48 in last week's PGA Championship while he also has recent top fives to his name in the Paul Lawrie Match Play and Aberdeen Asset Management Scottish Open. He currently sits 14th in the Race To Dubai so is the highest placed player on Europe's money list taking part this week.

Marc Warren hung up a 1-under-par 34-35=69 in round three of the World Golf Championships-Bridgestone Invitational at Firestone CC.

That's his first sub-par round of the week and puts the Scot at even-par 210 with 18 to play. Warren's birdie set contained 2s at the short 5th and 12th holes while his only other gain came on the 3rd. Limiting mistakes was the key for the 34-year-old today and despite hitting just 10 greens in regulations, an impressive short game allowed just a single bogey to creep onto his card. That came at 4th after he failed to escape from sand. For now, Warren is five shots behind clubhouse leaders Ian Poulter and Steven Bowditch and currently just inside the top 20.

Marc Warren is the last of 77 qualifiers for this week's World Golf Championships-Bridgestone Invitational.

After Troy Merritt secured his exemption by winning the Quicken Loans National, the final conduit into the no-cut, limited field at Firestone Country Club's South Course was the Official World Golf Ranking. The top 50 in the latest update are exempt. Warren rose to 49th thanks to a fourth-place finish at the Saltire Energy Paul Lawrie Match Play. He also tied for fourth three weeks ago at the Scottish Open. Should he accept the berth to play in Akron, Ohio, it'll mark his debut in the tournament. In fact, the 34-year-old hadn't pegged it in any of the WGCs until this season during which he competed in the first three.

Marc Warren eagled the 19th hole to beat Tyrrell Hatton and secure his place in the last four of the Saltire Energy Paul Lawrie Match Play at Murcar Links GC in Scotland.

After Hatton had stayed alive by chipping in for birdie at 18, Warren finally slammed the door shut by holing his second shot from 59 yards to seal victory with an eagle-2. In a match with several twists, Hatton went 3up after just five holes before Scotsman Warren won five of the next six -- four with birdies -- to turn the match around. The 34-year-old was still 2up with three to play but eventually needed victory via a playoff after Hatton won 16 and 18. Warren, who will play Kiradech Aphibarnrat (a 2&1 winner over Michael Hoey) in the last four, said, "To be fair it was one of the most bizarre matches I have ever been involved in. It started on the first with poor tee shots from both of us into a bunker and he ended up holing out from 100 yards for a birdie. He hit two other chips in after that, one into 18 to go to extra holes and I guess it was just my turn at the 19th to hole out." England's David Howell will play Sweden's Robert Karlsson in the other semi-final.

Second seed Marc Warren of Scotland beat Fabrizio Zanotti 3&2 at Murcar Links GC on Friday to book his place in the last 16 of the Saltire Energy Paul Lawrie Matchplay.

In a match where neither man could ever open up daylight, the two players arrived at the 14th tee still all square after the Paraguayan had levelled their last-32 contest again at the 13th. But a par put Warren back in front, he went 2up with a birdie-3 at the 15th and the local favorite closed out his opponent with a winning par at the short 16th. Warren, who edged out England's Richard Bland by 1 hole in the opening round of the 64-man straight knockout tournament, will now play Nicolas Colsaerts (a 4&3 winner over Trevor Fisher, Jr.) for a place in the last eight. With top seed James Morrison losing to Johan Carlsson, Warren is now the highest seed left in.

Marc Warren will have plenty of local support when he plays England's Richard Bland in round one of this week's inaugural Saltire Energy Paul Lawrie Match Play at Murcar Links Golf Club.

This new tournament on the European Tour schedule takes place in Warren's native Scotland and he's impressed in several recent home-soil events. The 34-year-old finished T4 in the Scottish Open earlier this month and was in the top five after two rounds of the Open Championship at St. Andrews before fading. One other pointer is that Murcar Links is right next door to Royal Aberdeen where Warren was T3 in last year's Scottish Open. His first-round match against Bland will be the second last game to tee off at 14:55 local time.

Marc Warren answered his opening 68 at The 144th Open Championship with a 3-under-par 34-35=69 in today's second round to post 7-under 137, good for temporary possession of the 36-hole clubhouse lead.

The Scot is the first to hang up a pair of sub-70s at St. Andrews thus far. He hit another 14 greens in regulation today and poured in five birdies against two bogeys. For now, the late-early draw looks to benefit at least in terms of routine. Since the second round won't conclude today, contenders finishing their second rounds on Saturday will have to wait several hours before getting back out there for the third round. Warren already knows that it'll be over 24 hours before he's on the first tee again.
