Morten Ørum Madsen will play in this week's Portugal Masters at Oceanico Victoria Golf Course for the third straight year.
The Dane took fourth place 12 months ago although that tournament was reduced to 36 holes after inclement weather. Madsen had opened 65-66 but was denied the chance to try and reel in eventual winner Alexander Levy. His latest form shows three successive missed cuts but before that he'd posted T5 in the KLM Open and was T20 at his home Made In Denmark event two starts earlier. Madsen also has some good form in the nearby Madeira Islands Open - Portugal - BPI with a tied second place in 2013 and a T11 in 2012. Mon, Oct 12, 2015 02:55:00 PM

Morten Ørum Madsen circled eight birdies in an opening 6-under-par 32-32=64 at the KLM Open in the Netherlands.

With lift, clean and place in operation at Kennemer, the par 70 was exposed to low scoring and Madsen came to the party by painting a sea of red on his scorecard. Those birdies included six in seven holes from the 5th and a walk-off par breaker at 18. He dropped shots at 8 and 17. The Dane's 64 was his best round since an opening 63 at March's Tshwane Open where he posted T15. He was particularly strong from tee-to-green today, missing just three fairways and hitting 16 greens in regulation.

Morten Ørum Madsen has been drawn against Alvaro Quiros in the first round of the Saltire Energy Paul Lawrie Match Play event in Scotland.

Their head-to-head, which tees off at 10.15am local time, looks one of the hardest to call as both appear to be unsuited by the course. Tight fairways and deep rough will defend the short links course this week and Madsen and Quiros sit together way down the Driving Accuracy rankings in 175th and 174th respectively. Spaniard Quiros shot an 81 in round three of the Scottish Challenge held at this course in 2006 so could be an accident waiting to happen after two missed cuts and two WDs in his last five events. Denmark's Madsen hasn't exactly been pulling up trees but did play all four rounds on the links of Gullane in the recent Scottish Open.

Morten Ørum Madsen has missed his last four cuts on the European Tour going into this week's Nordea Masters at PGA Sweden National.

With The Lakes course a short trip from his native Denmark, Madsen will hope a return to Scandinavia will get him going again. Madsen enjoyed a strong two months over February and March when posting five top 25s in six starts including T3 at the Africa Open and T4 in the Dubai Desert Classic. This will be his first start at The Lakes but it should suit his game far more than Royal County Down where his errant tee shots were punished heavily and he packed his bags at halfway after an 80 in round two.

Morten Ørum Madsen aced the 12th hole at Genzon GC in a 1-under-par 34-37=71 on day one of the Shenzhen International in China.

It came at just his third hole of the day and the Dane followed it with a birdie at the next so will be somewhat disappointed to only beat par by a shot. He sprinkled three more birdies on his card but was undone by a triple bogey-7 at the fifth along with bogeys at 8 and 18. Like Byeong-Hun An, who sunk his tee shot at the eighth, Madsen now has two hole-in-ones this season having never previously posted one as a pro. He's five shots back going into the second round.

Morten Ørum Madsen will be looking for a sixth top 25 in his last seven starts when he tees it up in the Shenzhen International in China.

The in-form Dane will appeal to gamers on that stat alone but it's worth noting he has course form too. Although this is a new tournament on the European Tour schedule, host venue Genzon GC staged last year's Volvo China Open. Madsen recovered from an opening 73 to finish T19 that week and his big hitting should allow him to thrive again. Starting from the Dubai Desert Classic his latest European Tour form reads: 4-25-MC-3-15-18.

Morten Ørum Madsen's wild ride at the Tshwane Open continued on Friday although he's now six off the lead after a 2-over-par 39-33=72.

It could have been a car crash. The Dane finished eagle, eagle in his opening round to take a share of the lead but gave those four shots back in the space of four holes in round two after swallowing double bogey-6s at the first and fourth. A birdie at seven stopped the bleeding but he went on another downward spiral with bogeys at 9 and 10. Madsen's roller-coaster continued as he responded with a trio of birdies from the 11th and he circled another at 17 before dropping another shot at 18. It all added up to a 72 and left him on 6-under at the midpoint -- six behind leader Adrian Otaegui.

A pair of closing eagles -- the first of them a hole-in-one - catapulted Morten Ørum Madsen to the top of the round one leaderboard at the Tshwane Open.

Three behind early pacesetter Wallie Coetsee, the Dane played his final two holes in 4-under to set the new target with a 7-under-par 33-30=63. It's fair to say Madsen has a love affair with golf in this part of the world. Victory in the South African Open at the end of 2013 gave him a first European Tour title and he shot 64-66 to finish third in last week's Africa Open. Today, he was steady for most of his round, circling four birdies against a single bogey before he finished like a train. At the 135-yard 8th, his tee-shot sucked back into the hole for an ace -- his first as a pro and the 20th on the European Tour this year -- before he hit a glorious approach to 10 feet at the 549-yard 9th and drained the putt for a second straight eagle. Madsen said later, "The last couple of weeks I’ve been hitting some shots really close and I actually said to my caddy last week that a hole-in-one is on the cards pretty soon."

Morten Ørum Madsen tacked on a 6-under-par 34-32=66 to his Saturday 64 to finish at 16-under 274 and take a share of third place in the Africa Open.

The Dane only just made the cut after opening with a pair of 71s but he came up with 14 birdies and an eagle over the weekend to fly through the field. Madsen posted the first of his seven birdies on Sunday at the third and reeled off three in succession from the sixth before suffering a bogey at nine. He added par breakers at 11, 12 and 15 to finish T3, albeit a distant eights shots behind winner Trevor Fisher, Jr. The former South African Open champion, who clearly enjoys playing in this part of the world, split 10 (of 15) fairways for the second day running and hit 14 greens in regulation

Morten Ørum Madsen had a triple bogey at his opening hole and slipped up again late on but still managed to tie for fourth in the Omega Dubai Desert Classic.

His seven at the first hole and back-to-back bogeys at 15 and 16 were the lowlights of a 1-over-par 35-38=73 on Sunday but birdies at two, three, nine and 12 helped him bank a top five finish with 15-under 273. The Dane, who started the day in second place after middle rounds of 63-66, also struggled out of sand. His poor bunker technique was exposed frequently and he was just 2-for-6 in sand saves. Still, it goes down as a very successful week for Madsen as this was only his second top five on the European Tour since winning the South African Open in November 2013.

Morten Ørum Madsen lit up the Emrirates Golf Club for a 9-under-par 32-31=63 on day two of the Omega Dubai Desert Classic to surge into contention at the midpoint.

Madsen moved to 10-under at the midpoint by matching his lowest round on the European Tour with a lap that included seven birdies and an eagle. The Dane birdied four, five and eight and then found a rare three at the par-5 10th hole. With a hot putter -- he needed just 21 swishes of the blade -- he circled birdies at 14, 16, 17 and 18 to climb just three shots behind the clubhouse lead of 13-under set by Marc Warren. Madsen has had contrasting fortunes on the Gulf Swing so far. He missed the cut in Qatar but was T12 in Abu Dhabi.

Morten Ørum Madsen turned around a slow day at the Abu Dhabi HSBC Golf Championship with a flying birdie-eagle finish.

Despite an early par breaker at the fourth, the Dane was going nowhere after bogeys at the sixth and 10th. But he splashed some red at the 13th before closing with a pair of threes for a 3-under-par 36-33=69 and a halfway total of 7-under. The former South African Open winner was 9-for-14 in fairways, hit 14 greens in regulation and took 30 swishes of the putter. He trails leader Martin Kaymer by six shots with 36 holes to play.

Morten Ørum Madsen returns to the scene of his finest hour when he lines up in this week's South African Open at Glendower.

The Dane shot 19-under-par to score a two-shot victory at this same venue last year. It came in just his 28th career start on the European Tour. He's struggled to consolidate that success, missing 13 cuts in 31 subsequent starts, but has managed six top 20s in eight outings in South Africa to confirm a surprising penchant for this part of the world. The latest was a T16 in the Alfred Dunhill Championship on his final start of 2014.

Morten Ørum Madsen spun a bogey-free, 5-under-par 34-33=67 in the final round of last week's South African Open en route to a two-stroke victory, his first on the European Tour.

The 25-year-old Euro Tour sophomore from Denmark started the finale one stroke off defending champion Charl Schwartzel's overnight lead. Madsen then circled five birdies and scrambled twice for par while Schwartzel nearly erased all of six birdies with a pair of 6s, one for a double bogey, the other for a triple. Madsen posted 19-under 269 for the title in just his 28th career start on the circuit. "I couldn’t have asked for a better start to the 2014 Race to Dubai," he said. "I hoped to come here to South Africa to build a solid foundation to take into the new year. But to start with a win – I couldn’t have wished for more. It’s onwards and upwards now." South Africans Jbe' Kruger and Hennie Otto shared runner-up honors.
