Marc Warren smoothed a final round 6-under-par 32-34=66 to complete a 14-under total of 274, worth T4 the Alfred Dunhill Links Championship on the Old Course, St. Andrews.
In doing so the Scot confirmed his card for 2018, which just three weeks ago seemed a distant target. However T4 here, alongside another top five in the Portugal Masters, has turned his season around. His front nine saw birdies at 1, 5, 6 and 7 before he added par breakers at 10 and 12 on the return home. The closing stretch was playing tougher but he dropped no shots. The result is his third T5 in the tournament and he now has six top 25s in 12 starts. "First and foremost," he said later explaining his record, "I love links golf, but the Old Course is my favourite course anywhere in the world." Astonishingly winner Tyrrell Hatton was fully ten shots clear of those T4. Oct 8 - 1:25 PM

Marc Warren rescued his 2017 season with a superb solo second in the Portugal Masters at the Dom Pedro Victoria Golf Course in Vilamoura, earned after a final round of 4-under-par 34-33=67 left him on 16-under 268.

The Scotsman ended the week four swings shy of the total winner Lucas Bjerregaard amassed and he was never genuinely in the hunt for the title, but given the desperate state of his season ahead of his visit to the Algarve he'll leave a very happy man. He started his day well, with birdies at 1 and 3, but having made a double bogey-6 at the seventh hole on Saturday he again struggled, making a bogey-5. The back nine was a fine response to that mistake as he ticked 10 and 15. Still, however, he was toiling to escape the field and gain a check that would promote him from the pre-event depths of 173rd on the Race to Dubai. Cue a 25'0", left-to-right swinging eagle putt at 17 which dropped in the hole. He followed it with bogey at 18, but George Coetzee collapsed at the same hole and Warren is now 100th in the rankings; card retention is in sight.

Marc Warren's flat year can be transformed after he stayed in contention at the Portugal Masters with a third lap of 1-under-par 34-36=70 to lie T3 on 12-under 201 at the 54-hole stage, two behind leader Lucas Bjerregaard.

The Scotsman had a bizarre third circuit of the Dom Pedro Victoria Golf Course in Vilamoura which saw him leap from the blocks in sensational style with three birdies in his first four holes, at 1, 2, and 4. He then blew up on the 510-yard par-4 7th hole with a double bogey-6, but thereafter was becalmed in completing 11 pars. Currently ranked 173rd on the Race to Dubai he desperately needs a good week; he's made just two top 20s all season (T20 in the Maybank Championship and T14 in the Made in Denmark). Perhaps tellingly his last top 15 finish was in this tournament last October. That said, his result then was his best in ten visits. However further improvement would be very welcome and four of his last eight laps of this course have needed no more than 66 swings.

With a bogey-free 7-under-par 32-32=64 in round two, Marc Warren matched the low lap of the day and joined early clubhouse leader Lucas Bjerregaard in a tie for first place after 36 holes of the Portugal Masters.

Afternoon starter Warren cruised to 11-under 131 thanks to five birdies and an eagle. The Scot also had a piece of the halfway lead in this event 12 months ago before finishing T12 so will want to cash in better on his flying start this time. Starting at the 10th hole today, Warren ticked 11 and then made a surge with a birdie-eagle burst at 16 and 17. For the second day running, he posted red numbers at 2 and 5 before joining Danish star Bjerregaard at 11-under with birdie-2 at 8. The 36-year-old came into the event struggling at 173rd on the Race to Dubai after a string of missed cuts this season but did show a flicker of form with T14 in last month's Made In Denmark.
Sep 22 - 1:22 PM

2014 winner Marc Warren blitzed Himmerland Golf & Spa Resort in 7-under-par 33-31=64 to hit the halfway mark of the 2017 event T2 on 7-under 135 in the Made In Denmark tournament, one stroke behind leader Steve Webster.

After winning three years ago the Scot has failed to make much headway on the Danish track, recording T44-MC, but with his season in something of a mess (he is ranked 181st in the Race to Dubai) fond memories seem to have prompted this effort. It’s certainly not form that has led to it – he hasn’t played more than the minimum number of laps since the first week of March. Playing Himmerland Golf & Spa Resort’s back nine first on Friday, he made seven pars and back-to-back red at 13 and 14. The front nine was quite a contrast to that sedate progress. He opened with five straight birdies from the first (including being inches from an ace at No. 2), dropped a shot at 6 and made it seven holes without a par with a tick at 7. He then parred 8 and 9 to join fellow course winner David Horsey, SSP Chawrasia and Paul Dunne in the tie for second.

Marc Warren is in desperate need of a links golf boost to his confidence as he heads to the Dubai Duty Free Irish Open at Portstewart GC in Northern Ireland.

It’s been a pretty grim season thus far for the Scot, for whom only two rounds of golf, both openers, have given him anything to cling to. A 66 in the Abu Dhabi Golf Championship had him T1 before he closed out for T49 and a round one 63 in the Maybank Championship also flattered to deceive as he ended the week T20. That result is his best of the year and it’s gotten worse in recent weeks. He arrives off a run of 0-for-5 with his last six rounds reading: 78-77-74-85-77-79. Any hope? Well, 12 months ago he shared the halfway lead at The K Club, but in the trend of this season he tailed off for T23. He can play links golf however and has six top five finishes on them in Scotland on the European Tour, the most recent when T5 at the Alfred Dunhill Links Championship in October.
Jul 4 - 8:57 AM

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.
May 23 - 11:13 AM

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.
May 7 - 12:37 PM

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.
