Marc Warren tacked on a second round 3-under-par 37-23=69 for a 36-hole total of 9-under 135 in the Open de España hosted by Centro Nacional de Golf, leaving him T5 and four swings back of Paul Dunne.
The Scot stuttered through his first nine (the back stretch), squaring 11 and 17, finding recompense only at the 242-yard par-3 14th. The front nine was an entirely different story as he made birdie at 1, 4, 5 and 7. 184th in the Race to Dubai he needs a strong weekend after a season of under-performance. Most pertinently he needs to find his game in the those Saturday and Sunday rounds because although he has made five cuts in seven starts he is yet to better T53 and incredibly he has carded a weekend lap of 80+ three times in his last four starts.

With a trio of closing birdies, Marc Warren completed a 6-under-par 35-31=66 in the first round of the Open de España at Centro Nacional de Golf, jumping into a one-shot clubhouse lead over local hero Jon Rahm and Aussie Jason Norris. UPDATE:- Only Paul Dunne caught and tied Warren. There are nine players T3 on 5-under.

Not a lot appeared to be happening for the Scot when playing his first 11 holes in 1-under after early birdies at 2 and 5 against a lone bogey at 4. Red numbers at 12 and 13 kick-started his morning lap again and Warren surged into the solo lead with birdies at 16, 17 and 18. Perhaps Warren thought he was playing in Scotland rather than Spain today given that most of the field were dressed more for the Alfred Dunhill Links Championship than an April event in Madrid. That said, Warren has some good form in Spain too with a pair of top sixes in his last four starts in the country, including a top four in this event five years ago. What he needs to do next is make much better use of this fast start; he's shot in the 60s in each of his last four events but hasn't finished in the top 50 at any of them.

Marc Warren kept the birdies flowing in round one of the Hero Indian Open at DLF Golf & Country Club, scribbling seven red numbers in a 4-under-par 33-35=68 which left him three shots behind clubhouse leader Emiliano Grillo.

That's worth T6 on the live board with the opening lap coming to a conclusion. The Scot has now broken 70 in his last four first rounds so he's one to consider if looking for a fast starter. However, he's not been able to convert any into good finishes, having to settle for T67 at the Maybank, T63 in Oman and T53 in Qatar. Today, he burst from the gates with circles at 1, 2 and 4 before he gave a shot back at the par-3 5th. That setback didn't deter him and Warren added par breakers at 8, 11 and 12 to move to T2. There was a late sticky patch as he swallowed bogeys at 14 and 16 but they were split by a final birdie of the day at 15 and two closing pars completed a fine day's work. Now his task is to make better use of it and that's far from a given on a track where bogeys and doubles lurk at every turn.

A strong front nine allowed Marc Warren to post 6-under-par 32-34=66 and join Lee Westwood and Yuta Ikeda as the early clubhouse leaders on 10-under 134 in the Maybank Championship at Saujana G&CC in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia.

The Scotsman opened his account with a second birdie of the week at the 534-yard par-5 first hole and then had to wait three holes before he splashed color all over his card. Four birdies came in a rush at five holes (5, 7, 8 and 9) with a blue one in among them at No. 6. The back nine was a more sedate affair, with seven pars and a pair of birdies at 14 and 18. He missed the cut at Saujana in 2009 (Malaysian Open) but was T20 in this event here last year and did offer a hint of his liking for the venue with a round one 63 yet it was his only sub-70 round of the week. He owns four top ten finishes in Asian Tour co-sanctioned events, one of them in the 2015 Malaysian Open (at Kuala Lumpur CC).
Feb 2 - 3:34 AM

Marc Warren fought a cold last week in Turkey, he'll hope to be over that for this week's Nedbank Golf Challenge at the Gary Player Country Club in Sun City, South Africa.

The 36-year-old may have spoked a little soon ahead of the Turkish Airlines Open. Going into the week he had pegged results of T2-T15-T4-T10, prefaced by a couple of promising efforts and he admitted to The Scotsman newspaper: "Probably the best spell of my career in terms of results, which shows that all parts of my game seem to be in a good place." He promptly carded 72-70-73-73 to finish T66. He's twice played the tournament (in 2014 and 2016), but is yet to break 71, has twice opened with a 75 and has recorded finishes of T26 (30 player field) and T64 (72 player field).

With a second, a fourth and two other top 15s in his last four starts, Marc Warren is playing his best golf of the season going into the Turkish Airlines Open at Regnum Carya Golf & Spa Resort.

The Scotsman's Race to Dubai position was becoming a concern but something clicked when he shook off some poor form to finish runner-up in September's Portugal Masters and he's since gone 15-4-10. In his last four events, Warren is a combined 56-under-par. Next up is his annual trip to Turkey which yielded T7 when he first played this event at the Montgomerie Maxx in 2013. He's 4-for-4 and finished T47 at this week's venue, Regnum Carya Golf & Spa Resort, last year although that did include an opening 68 and a third-round 67 so Warren can score on this course. In his current form, this looks a good opportunity for him to make another climb up the Race To Dubai (currently 54th).

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.

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.

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.

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).

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.
