Niclas Fasth has managed just one top 25 finish in his last 45 starts but is currently T4 on the live leaderboard at the BMW International Open after reaching 7-under 137 through 36 holes thanks to a second-round 3-under-par 34-35=69.
Fasth has missed eight cuts from 11 starts this season and not cracked the top 50 but he's the surprise part of a strong Swedish challenge so far at Golfclub München Eichenried. Compatriot Joakim Lagergren leads the way, two shots clear of Fasth, while Henrik Stenson splits the pair. There is some logic though. Fasth took victory at this course in 2007 and although that's a long time ago, the positive memories of the Munich venue can only be helping. Today, after starting at 10, he made four birdies against a bogey. His first two circles came at 12 and 16 and, following a bogey at 1, he signed off with two more at 8 and 9.

Niclas Fasth is listed as Player 1 in the opening group of this week's Alfred Dunhill Championship at Leopard Creek in South Africa.

In other words, the Swede looks set to hit the first shot of the new 2016 European Tour season. After finishing 146th on the Race to Dubai, Fasth gets in this week due to his category 12 status of being in the top 40 on the 2015 Career Money List. He's played in each of the last four editions of this event but his T29 in 2013 is the only time he cashed. Fasth will hope to wipe the slate clean here after finishing his 2015 campaign by missing 11 cuts in his final 12 starts.

With an eagle-3 at the 18th, Niclas Fasth carded a 5-under-par 35-32=67 at the East Course to surge into contention at the Joburg Open.

Any 67 on the tougher of Royal Johannesburg & Kensington’s two layouts is going to ensure a leaderboard leap and, at the time of posting, the Swede's impressive lap of the par 72 had moved him to tied fourth spot on 10-under 133 at the midpoint. Fasth had three birdies and a bogey-6 at the sixth on the front nine. On the back, he birdied 14 and then completed his second round in style with an eagle at the last. The 42-year-old, who helped Europe to victory in the 2002 Ryder Cup, hasn't finished inside the top 100 of the Race To Dubai since 2009. He's missed all three of his cuts in this event and has also failed to cash in his last two European Tour starts. There were some promising signs last month, however, when he finished T25 in the South African Open and followed it with a T20 in Abu Dhabi.

Former Ryder Cup star Niclas Fasth carded five birdies on the way to an opening 35-34=69 at the South African Open.

The Swede started and ended his day at Glendower with bogey fives but in between registered birdies at 2, 7, 11, 14 and 15 to put his name on the early leaderboard. The 42-year-old helped Europe to victory in the 2002 Ryder Cup and also won five times on the European Tour between February 2005 and June 2007. It's been a struggle since then and he hasn't finished inside the top 100 of the Race To Dubai since 2009.

Niclas Fasth makes his way to Pinehurst No. 2 this week for his sixth U.S. Open appearance.

The former European Ryder Cupper is 3-for-5 in U.S. Open starts, including a 4th place finish at Oakmont Country Club in 2007. Fasth earned his ticket this week by firing a 7-under 137 at the Walton Heath sectional in Surrey, England. Gamers can steer clear of the Swede, as he is 3-for-14 on the European Tour this season, with just one top 25 to his name.

Niclas Fasth will tee it up in The Open Championship for the seventh time.

The former European Ryder Cupper was the runner-up in his very first try way back in 2001, but enters Muirfield without playing this event since 2008. In all, he's made three of his six cuts with his runner-up serving as his only top 25.

Niclas Fasth chased an opening 69 with a 7-over par 79 in the second round of THE PLAYERS to miss the cut by one stroke.

On Friday, Fasth turned (at the 18th) in 41 and was inside the cut line when he arrived at the 7th hole. He then proceeded to bogey his last three for an inward 38. He putted 29 times each day despite hitting six fewer GIR on Friday. It's the third time in four starts that the Swede has missed the cut at THE PLAYERS.

Niclas Fasth carded a final round 66 en route to a T-8 finish at the Arnold Palmer Invitational.

Fasth is no stranger to posting Top 10s while playing sporadically on the PGA Tour. He's most certainly undervalued and is a perfect hired gun in the international events. Until he earns (and accepts) PGA Tour membership, his long-term value will completely rely on high finishes.

Niclas Fasth is listed in the published field for next week's Arnold Palmer Invitational.

The dynamic Swede is beginning the three-tourney stretch many foreign non-members will play. After the Palmer, he'll compete at the no-cut WGC-CA Championship and eventually the Masters. Fasth missed last year's cut at Bay Hill but made three paychecks there from 2002-04. Of all non-members, he's one of the better ones, having made the cut in all four majors in 2007, highlighted by a 4th at the U.S. Open.

Niclas Green won over Richard Green 6&5 in Match 8 at the WGC-Accenture Match Play Championship.

Fasth won the 1st, 2nd, 6th and 9th holes to go 4-up at the turn, then he picked the 10th and 12th holes to win 6&5 after 13 holes. He will now move on to Round Two where he will meet Vijay Singh on Thursday.

Niclas Fasth(#6)will play Richard Green(#11) in Match 8 on the opening day of the WGC-Accenture Match Play Championships.

Fasth's highlight last year was a 4th place finish at the U.S. Open and then winning the next week at the BMW International Open. He has played well this year and is coming off a T-10 at the Dubai Desert Classic a few weeks ago. He has a good record at the Match Play, and reached the third round before losing on this course last year. Richard Green won the BA-CA Golf Open on the European Tour last year and this year his best finish was a T-17 at the Abu Dhabi Golf Championship. He has played in the WGC-Accenture Match Play for the last three years and has yet to get out of the first round.

Niclas Fasth carded a final round of 2-under-par 70 to win the BMW International Open at the Golfclub Munchen Eichenried near Munich, Germany.

Fasth won by two strokes over Bernard Langer and Jose-Filipe Lima, but Fasth was in total control of the tournament after the open nine holes of the final round. He is playing some of the best golf of his career right now and fantasy managers might want to keep his name in mind when picking their rosters for the upcoming British Open. Fasth has missed the cut in last couple of years of The Open, but he did have a second place finish in 2001 when the tournament was held at Royal Lytham.

Sweden's Niclas Fasth carded a final-round, even-par 70 to finish in fourth place at the 2007 U.S. Open at Oakmont Country Club.

Although his highly-ranked countryman Henrik Stenson failed to make the cut, Fasth carried the banner for Sweden with a +7 total for the tournament and he finished just three strokes behind eventual winner Angel Cabrera and two in back of American stalwarts Tiger Woods and Jim Furyk. Although Fasth has never won a PGA Tour event, he already has two top-10 finishes this year in WGC events, a T-9 at the Accenture Match Play Championship and a T-6 at the CA Championship.

Niclas Fasth has been added to The Players Championship field.

Fasth has played a limited schedule on the Tour this year with mixed results. He missed the cut at the Arnold Palmer, had a T-6 at the WGC-CA and a T-55 at the Masters. His history at The Players is also mixed with a T-22 in 2003, and a missed the cut in 2002.
