Marc Warren is a past winner of the Nordea Masters and this year the tournament returns to the course where he took victory.
The Scot edged out home hero Robert Karlsson in a play-off win the 2006 edition at Barseback Golf & Country Club, securing the first of his three European Tour wins, and for the first time since 2009 the event is being played again at the coastal course in southern Sweden. It may have been 11 years ago but Warren should certainly feel some good vibes. That said, he did miss the cut on his first return in 2009 and his Nordea Masters record since his win has been woeful; he's cashed just twice in eight appearances. Warren failed to make the weekend at Wentworth last time but that came after an 11-week break so some rust is forgiven. Before the BMW PGA he'd posted top 25s in two of his three previous events (Maybank and Tshwane Open). May 30 - 4:25 AM

Marc Warren travels south of the Scottish border hoping to maintain his strong record at the BMW PGA Championship hosted by the West Course at Wentworth.

In ten visits to the Virginia Water track the Scot has tallied no less than eight top 30 finishes, contending for the title in 2009 and losing in a three-man play-off in 2013. In all that time he has shown strong putting stats, ranking top ten in various categories on four separate occasions. He also has a habit of making quick starts. Five times he has ranked in the top 20 after 18 holes, four of those times he was in the top ten, twice he has been second (or tied) at halfway. After a rough start to the season there have been glimpses of form. He led the Maybank Championship after one round, was T20 in the Tshwane Open and, far more recently, finished third along with Richie Ramsay when representing Scotland at the GolfSixes.

Marc Warren and Richie Ramsay defeated Matteo Manassero and Renato Paratore at the second extra hole of their consolation match to finish third in the GolfSixes at the Centurion Club.

The Scots defeated the Italians by virtue of finishing nearest the hole after they could not be split by six holes of regular play or the one play-off hole. In a somewhat inevitably underwhelming after-the-Lord-Mayor's-Show event the two losing semi-finalists could scratch only two birdies between them in the six holes. Scotland at the second, Italy at the fifth. It marks Warren's third top two finish in team events, having been runner-up and winner in the World Cup.

Marc Warren and Richie Ramsay, representing Scotland, thrashed Portugal's Jose-Felipe Lima and Ricardo Gouveia 3-0 in the quarter finals of the GolfSixes at the Centurion Club.

The Scottish pair made four 3s to finish their match with two holes to play. The first of those was for par, which the Portuguese matched. A birdie-2 at the 476-yard par-4 second followed to go 1-0 up, an eagle-3 at the third made it 2-0 and another birdie-3 at the fourth earned the Scots a semi final against either Thailand or Australia.

Scotland became the first team to qualify for Sunday's knockout phase at the new GolfSixes event in England as Marc Warren and Richie Ramsay made it two wins out of two with a 3-2 victory over Spain.

The Scots had earlier beaten Belgium in their opening Group B game at Centurion Club and really turned on the style to take down Spain and book their spot in tomorrow's quarter-finals. After a winning birdie-2 at the first which Pablo Larrazábal and Jorge Campillo wiped out with one of their own at No. 2, Scotland produced one of the highlights of the day as Ramsay put his approach to four feet at the par-5 third. Warren rolled in the eagle putt and birdies at the next two holes put them into an unassailable 3-1 lead. Spain took the last with birdie but it proved too little too late.
May 6 - 9:28 AM

Marc Warren will tag with Richie Ramsay, forming a Scottish alliance in England when they compete in this week’s GolfSixes at the Centurion Club in St Albans.

Warren has plenty of experience in head-to-head golf. Perhaps most famously he was the winner of the 2007 World Cup when he teamed up with Colin Montgomerie, 12 months after the pair had been defeated in a play-off for the same title. In the Royal and Seve Trophies he has a doubles record of 3-4-1, but in singles across the board he is 10-5, boosted by a runner-up finish in the 2015 Paul Lawrie Match Play. The Scot is a solid proposition in England, making eight top 30 finishes in 18 starts, including a play-off loss in the 2013 BMW PGA Championship and T22 at The Grove seven months ago, a course that is not too far away from this week’s venue. Not seen on Tour since the first week of March when he was T22 at the Tshwane Open.
May 3 - 5:55 AM

Marc Warren blitzed the Palm Course at Saujana G&CC in round one of the Maybank Championship, his 9-under-par 30-33=63 giving him a two-shot lead over Phachara Khongwatmai at close of play.

The Scot opened his season on the Desert Swing, but at first glance there was little to hint this fast start as he logged T49-T60-MC. Yet an opening 66 in Abu Dhabi had earned him a short-lived T2 and speedy first rounds were also a theme to the end of his 2016 season, where he had shared the 18 hole lead in the British Masters and had sole possession a week later in the Portual Masters. In Kuala Lumpur Thursday he was right back on that early birdie train posting birdie-3s at 1, 4 and 6, but on the front nine it was the par-5s which saw him make most ground thanks to birdie-4 at the 3rd and eagle-3 at the 8th. In contrast he made no headway on the long holes on the return home, but another three par breakers (12, 14 and 17) completed the bogey-free lap. It comfortably bests his previous low round in Malaysia (68) and he can now look to better his top career finish in the country too; his T9 in the 2015 Malaysian Open is his only top 45 finish there in five starts.
Feb 9 - 2:53 AM

Marc Warren smashed eight birdies on his way to a 6-under-par 32-34=66 in the first round of the Abu Dhabi HSBC Championship, good for T2 and two back of the early leader Henrik Stenson.

An opening 68 in 2014 did leave the Scot T4, but at no other time in his 11 previous visits to the Abu Dhabi GC has he been remotely in the hunt for this title. In fact he's only played the weekend three times - only a miserable Friday can stop him making that four now. Playing the back nine first he was hot from the get-go ticking three of his first four holes (10, 11 and 13). A bogey at 15 was a setback he took in his stride, responding with more red at 16 and 18. There was no let-up as he circled 1 and 2 to open the front nine. A second bogey at the 6th was righted when he made birdie-4 at the 8th. The 66 is - by two swings - his low score on the track in 29 laps.
Jan 19 - 5:12 AM

In 12 previous visits to the Abu Dhabi HSBC Championship, Marc Warren has struggled to find his A game; he'll hope to change that this week.

Something about the Abu Dhabi GC appears not to fit the Scotsman's eye, as he tries to right a record of 3-for-11, with a best of just T26 back in 2009. His capacity to miss cuts is replicated elsewhere in the United Arab Emirates. At Emirates he is 3-for-10, although every time he makes the weekend there he finishes top 20 (but never top ten). In the elite field DP World Tour Championship four rounds is a given, yet still he hasn't cracked the course code with a best of T21 in four tries. 2016 was a bit of a struggle for him until T5 in the Alfred Dunhill Links Championship secured a card, but he won't want to leave it that late this time around. Chances are the big cheque won't be banked this week however.
Jan 17 - 9:34 AM

Marc Warren tacked on a second-round 6-under-par 33-32=65 to his opening 63 and shares the halfway lead on 14-under 128 with defending champion Andy Sullivan in the Portugal Masters at Victoria Clube de Golfe.

One clear overnight, the Scot enjoyed another cruise around the par 72 on Friday, picking off seven birdies to add to the nine he posted on day one which included six straight. Starting with a par at 10, Warren made his first move with a birdie at 12 and added two more at 14 and 15. On the front nine he splashed further red at 2, 3, 6 and 9. The only hole to trouble him so far this week is the 466-yard 7th and today he made his only bogey of the round there for the second day running. "I'm really pleased," said Warren. "It's always tough to follow up a really good score like yesterday. It was good, I tried to stay as patient as I possibly could out there and nice to finish with a three at the last." The third round will begin at 11am local time in three-balls off two tees. Warren goes off alongside Sullivan and Sweden's Jens Fahrbring in the final match at 1pm.

Marc Warren started his opening lap at the Portugal Masters with six straight birdies, eventually signing for a sparkling 8-under-par 29-34=63 to take a one-shot lead after Thursday's first round.

A pleasing start turned into an excellent one turned into #59watch as the Scot kept scribbling circles to charge to 6-under through 6. He came back to earth with a bogey at 7 but made sure he broke 30 for the outward nine with another birdie two holes later. Although the sparks didn't fly in the same way coming home and hopes of the the elusive 59 vanished, further red at 13 and 15 was enough to elevate him into a one-shot lead over David Lipsky, Mikko Korhonen, Callum Shinkwin, Matthew Baldwin and Eddie Pepperell. This continues a recent return to form from Warren who has three top 25s in his last four starts, including T5 at his home Alfred Dunhill Links Championships earlier this month. The 35-year-old, who was also co-leader after round one of last week's British Masters, hit 17 greens in regulation and took just 24 putts. "I think I've had six or seven (birdies) in a row but never at the start of the round," he said.

Marc Warren built on last week's top five at the Alfred Dunhill Links Championship with an opening 5-under-par 33-33=66 in round one of the British Masters at The Grove and is tied for the clubhouse lead with Finland's Mikko Ilonen. UPDATE: Ilonen and Warren were joined in the lead by Tommy Fleetwood and Richard Sterne.

Warren ignited a disappointing season in his native Scotland by playing the final 54 holes in 16-under and rode that momentum at The Grove on Thursday. Starting with a birdie at 10, he added a pair of deuces on the par 3s at 13 and 16 before surging into the lead on his own with an eagle-3 at 2 and another birdie at 3. Two clear at one point, a walk-off Warren bogey at 9 along with an Ilonen birdie at 18 meant he had to settle for a share of the clubhouse lead. The pair are a shot clear of home English quartet Lee Westwood, David Horsey, Richard Bland and James Morrison.

Marc Warren cruised The Old Course, St. Andrews in 5-under-par 33-34=67 to end the Alfred Dunhill Links Championship alone in fifth on 16-under 272.

The Scot secured the his best finish of the 2016 season on home soil with a round that was flawless, as he negotiated the most historic test in golf in fine style. He opened with four straight pars before taking advantage of the easy par-5 fifth, making his first birdie of the day. Another two followed at 8 and 9, but he had to wait a while before he added to the tally. He made three at the par-4 16th and repeated the trick in front of the crows on the final green to slot into fifth place on his own. The result equalled his previous best finish in the event (in 2011).

Marc Warren toured the Old Course at St. Andrews in 6-under-par 32-34=66 to jump up to T6 after two rounds of the Alfred Dunhill Championship in Scotland.

At 6-under 138, the local man is the leading Scot after 36 holes and sits five shots behind leader Ross Fisher. Warren has been in poor form this season but should always be in the crosshairs for gamers when teeing it up at home. He finished T5 in this event in 2011 and has also made the top four in two of the last three Scottish Opens. Today, he cashed in on the Old Course's scoring holes with birdies at 2, 3, 7, 9, 10 and 12. He gave one back at the tough 17th (Road Hole) but rounded off a fine day's work with a birdie at 18 to put himself in contention. He'll travel to Carnoustie for round three before returning to St. Andrews for Sunday's concluding round.

Marc Warren has missed his last two cuts on the European Tour but will look to find a spark when he has another crack at the KLM Open.

It's a new course on show this week, a sub-7000 yard par 71 called The Dutch which was designed by Warren's fellow Scot Colin Montgomerie. This will be the 35-year-old's 10th start in the event and he's had his moments, the highlights a fourth place at Kennemer in 2008 and T12 at Hilversumsche in 2012. He has another top 15 from a Challenge Tour event at Broekpolder so Warren has played well on various courses in the country. It's his current form that remains a problem though and the hope of a T11 at the recent Czech Masters (his first top 15 in over a year) has been quelled by back-to-back halfway exits in Denmark and Switzerland. At least he managed a 68 in round two at the Omega European Masters last week which is something to build on.
