Raphaël Jacquelin birdied his final three holes in a 5-under-par 32-33=65 on day one of the Tshwane Open.
A decent first day at Pretoria CC turned into a very good one for the Frenchman as his late burst put him second in the clubhouse -- just one stroke behind early pacesetter Wallie Coetsee. Jacquelin started fast with three par breakers in his opening five holes but stalled with ten straight pars and a bogey at the fourth. Then came the hot finish to put him in position to mount a title charge following a disappointing missed cut in last week's Africa Open. Mar 12 - 6:27 AM

Frenchman Raphaël Jacquelin has the form to feature on the leaderboard at this week's Africa Open.

In his last three starts on South African turf, the 40-year-old has finished T13-T5-T7. The most recent of those came at January's South African Open. Jacquelin is 4-for-5 this season and before taking the last three events off he finished T25 in Malaysia and T27 in Dubai. He does have some past, if distant, experience of East London. The four-time European Tour winner was T65 in the 2001 South African Open played there and missed the cut in the 2010 Africa Open.
Mar 4 - 7:42 AM

Raphaël Jacquelin tees off in this week's South African Open for the first time since 2004.

It comes as a surprise it's taken the Frenchman this long to line up again given that he finished T5 in that tournament at Erinvale 11 years ago. He was also 19th the year before. It appears the return to a January date from the pre-Christmas slot it occupied from 2005 has persuaded Jacquelin to try his luck again. The four-time European Tour winner ended his 2014 campaign with a T55 at the Turkish Airlines Open in mid-November.

With a birdie on the ninth hole of sudden death, Raphaël Jacquelin defeated Max Kieffer at the Open de España at Parador de El Saler in Valencia, Spain.

The Frenchman was 1-for-7 in birdie opportunities in the playoff before converting the winning putt from medium distance behind and above the hole at the par-4 18th, the only hole used in sudden death. Kieffer, a 22-year-old rookie from Germany playing in just his 16th event on the European Tour, left his longer birdie try well short to open the door. They finished regulation in 5-under 283, as did Felipe Aguilar of Chile. After the threesome carded two pars to start the playoff, Jacquelin and Kieffer birdied the third time through. Kieffer's was the highlight as he rolled his attempt in from long distance from a lie off the green in the front right. Aguilar was eliminated when his chip failed to fall. Jacquelin and Kieffer then parred the hole five more times before Jacquelin's second birdie. The nine-hole playoff ties the all-time European Tour record. Jacquelin, who will turn 39 years of age on May 8, picks up his fourth career title on the circuit.

Raphael Jacquelin posted a 3-under-par 32-36=68 in his final round of the inaugural Sicilian Open at Donnafugata Golf Resort & Spa to win by one stroke over Anthony Wall.

After Wall held the lead by two at the tournament's midpoint, Jacquelin snared it with a 69 in the third round (to Wall's 72). The final round was suspended for inclement weather, forcing a Monday finish. Upon returning to the course this morning, the duo traded birdies before Wall circled another at the 16th hole. The Brit then double-bogeyed 17 to fall two back. He rebounded with a birdie at the last, but Jacquelin managed par to secure the victory at 12-under 272. It's the Frenchman's third career European Tour victory, and first since the 2007 BMW Asian Open.

Raphael Jacquelin carded a 1-over-par 73 to win the BMW Asian Open by two strokes.

It was lucky the Raphael had the big lead going into the final round because he had four bogeys in his final six holes. His only other win on the European tour was at the 2005 Open de Madrid and it also was a wire-to-wire win. Ernie Els did have a nice T-5 in the event, which was pretty impressive considering he was in a Monday finish at the Verizon Heritage. Els will return to the PGA Tour at the Wachovia Championship.

Raphael Jacquelin, who added a three-under-par 69 to his opening-round 66, continues to lead the BMW Asian Open in Shanghai, China.

Jacquelin stands at -9 for the tournament and has a three-shot lead over Sung-man Lee of Korea. The big names are well back in this event; Ernie Els is at -2, Paul Casey (-1), and Retief Goosen (+1). Colin Montgomerie is in contention at -5, while John Daly is having as much trouble (or more) on the European Tour as he has been having in the U.S. He finished the second round at 11-over-par.
