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.

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.

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.

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.

Marc Warren is seeking the elusive secret of success in the mountains of Switzerland for the 2016 Omega European Masters.

On his last visit to Crans-sur-Sierre GC, two years ago, the Scot blasted a second round 63 to find himself T8 heading into the weekend – it was the first time in ten appearances that he found himself in contention during the heart of the tournament. True, he had pegged a T4 in 2006, but only after a final round 67 vaulted him from T17; and another Sunday 67 in 2010 sprung him from T19 to T9. He actually bettered both those last day efforts in 2014, carding 66, but ended the week T13. All in all, at 4-for-10 his claims are not too strong. Nor is his form. He was T11 in the Czech Masters but that was his first top 15 finish since July 2015 and he missed the cut last week on a course that witnessed his last win in 2014.

With a winning birdie-3 at 16, Marc Warren beat Magnus Carlsson 3&2 and secured a place in the last 16 of the Paul Lawrie Match Play at Archerfield Links Golf Club

So far so good for the Scotsman, who had come into the event in poor form. Warren, who made the last four in 2015, lost the first hole to the Swede's birdie-3 but won 2 and 3 with circles of his own and led all the way from there. He extended his lead to 3 up at the turn and, after losing 10, hit back with an eagle at 11 to open up further daylight again. Carlsson twice cut the the deficit to 2 down but Warren completed the job with birdies at 14 and 16. He'll now take on Haydn Porteous later today for a place in the final eight.

Marc Warren defeated Jorge Campillo 3&2 to progress to the second round of the Paul Lawrie Match Play at Archerfield Links Golf Club.

The Scotsman was a semi-finalist 12 months ago at Murcar Links and he continued that form on the Fidra Links layout. He made 4 birdies on the front nine and 3 of them were good enough to win the hole; his one bogey cost him the fourth. He started the back nine with 3 red numbers in 4 holes and although he lost the 12th to a bogey-6 he found himself secure at 4 up with 5 to play. Campillo refused to lie down, nicking the 13th with a birdie-4, but he could eat into Warren's lead no further and the match was closed out on the 16th green. Warren is now 9-4 in individual match play and takes on Magnus A Carlsson in round two, a 4&3 victor over Chase Koepka.

Marc Warren is one of the local contingent contesting the Aberdeen Asset Management Scottish Open this week.

This is the fourth time Castle Stuart Golf Links in Inverness has played host and Warren is 3-for-3 with a standout third place in 2012 when he posted a 64 in round three. With a trio of top four finishes in his last six starts on home soil, Warren deserves respect but he's been scratching around to find some decent form for most of the season. Some consistency is starting to emerge at last (he's made five of his last five cuts) but a 79-77 weekend in Paris last time suggests his confidence is still brittle. Still, if he is to find a spark, the Scot is in the right place.

Marc Warren defied his course history to post a sparkling 5-under-par 34-33=67 and tie the lead in the opening round of the Nordea Masters.

The Scot is a former winner of this event in 2006, but his fortunes at Bro Hof Slott GC have rarely been good. Indeed, he's missed all three weekends he's aimed at and never before broken 71. He made a mockery of the record books Thursday however, painting both nines with red numbers. On the outward half he ticked birdie at 3, 6 and 9, alongside one dropped shot at the 5th. The inward half saw him make bogey at 14, but make 4 birdies at 12, 15, 17 and 18. His 67 drew him alongside the morning leaders Andrew Johnston, Sebastien Gros, Scott Henry and Clement Berardo. Late in the day they were all joined by Florian Fritsch. The six players are one ahead of a pack of 9 on 4-under.

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."
