Matthew Baldwin's bid to keep his European Tour card got off to an excellent start as he produced an eight-birdie 7-under-par 32-32=64 in the opening round of the Portugal Masters.
The Englishman is one of those drinking in the last-chance saloon this week and needs a top two finish to retain his playing privileges. After two opening pars, he made his move today by connecting three birdies from Nos. 12-14 and added another at the par-5 17th. He splashed further red at 1, 2 and 5 before dropping his only shot of the day at the long par-4 7th. Unperturbed, Baldwin hit back with a walk-off birdie at 9 to make it a four-way tie at the top alongside David Lipsky, Mikko Korhonen and Callum Shinkwin. The 30-year-old finds himself in this position after failing to register a single top 10 this season. However, that's something he managed at this venue last year when shooting three 69s and a 66 to post T9. That should give him the confidence to know his late bid for a reprieve might just be successful. Oct 20 - 11:37 AM

Matthew Baldwin was tied fifth in last year's Joburg Open and returns to Royal Johannesburg & Kensington for another crack.

Four rounds in the 60s, including a closing 67, gave the Englishman a second straight top five on South African soil after he'd finished runner-up in the Nelson Mandela Championship the previous December. He also showed his liking for these early-season co-sanctioned events in SA with a top 15 in March's Tshwane Open so he's a viable option for gamers this week. So far in 2015 he's 3-for-5 with a best of T23 in at the Qatar Masters. He was also just three off the pace at the halfway mark of the True Thailand Classic on his last start before dropping back to T60 at the finish.

Matthew Baldwin surged up to tied sixth in the True Thailand Classic after signing for a 5-under-par 34-33=67 on day two.

The Englishman showed flickers of form again with a T23 in Qatar and is showing up strongly here after reaching 8-under 136 at the midpoint -- just three off the lead. Baldwin is basing his challenge so far on strong iron play and has hit 14 greens in regulation in both rounds. He's also shown a tidy short game and is 7-for-8 in scrambling. The 28-year-old started today's lap with three straight birdies from the 10th and buried three more on his second nine. His only blemish came at the 16th.

Matthew Baldwin is on course for a first top 10 since July after posting a 2-under-par 35-35=70 in the third round of the Commercial Bank Qatar Masters.

Baldwin has missed seven of his last 13 cuts and managed just one finish better than T39 in that period but is enjoying his week in Doha after moving to 8-under 208. That makes him just five off the pace with 18 to play. The Englishman returned a colorful card on Friday with six birdies and four bogeys. The quartet of blemishes came at two, six, 11 and 13 and meant he couldn't cash in on the birdies he authored at one, eight, nine, 10, 14 and 16. Baldwin was T22 in this event last year and has cashed on both his starts in Doha.
