Søren Kjeldsen has enjoyed plenty of good results at Le Golf National and returns there for this week's Alstom Open de France.
The Dane has been rejuvenated on the European Tour this year with five top 20s in his last eight starts, that run including a victory in the Irish Open and a second place at the Nordea Masters. While he's struggled for much of the last few years, Kjeldsen has continued to enjoy his trips to this venue and has finished T26 or better in eight of his last 10 visits. That includes top 10s in 2008, 2012 and 2013. He's currently slotted in at T17 on the Race To Dubai. Jul 1 - 7:28 AM

Last week's Irish Open winner Søren Kjeldsen authored a 1-under-par 37-34=71 to finish runner-up at the Nordea Masters on 8-under 280.

In truth, the Dane never looked like reeling in eventual four-shot winner Alex Noren but another gutsy display in windy conditions lifted him up to solo second. Kjeldsen tried to up the pressure on the back nine with birdies at 11, 14 and 18 against a single bogey at 16 but it wasn't enough. Ultimately, he started too slowly on Sunday with eight pars and a bogey on the front nine which allowed Noren to build too big a lead. Kjeldsen will hardly have too many regrets, though, after a golden fortnight on the European Tour where he's re-established himself following a six-year win drought. Today, he split 10 (of 14) fairways and hit 13 greens in regulation and gamers should now keep an eye on him when scoring is tough and the forecast shows plenty of wind.

Last week's Irish Open winner Søren Kjeldsen is in place to score back-to-back European Tour wins after a strong performance in round three at the Nordea Masters.

The in-form Dane crafted a 4-under-par 33-35=68 to reach 7-under 209 and that's only four swings behind clubhouse leader Alex Noren. Just as relevant, there are just three other players above him as the third day at PGA Sweden National comes to a close. Kjeldsen made his move early with birdies at 1, 3, 5 and 6 before running up a bogey-6 at 8 to halt his momentum. He was steady after that but found a walk-off birdie at 18 to set up the chance of two titles in two weeks after failing to win any in the previous six years.

Søren Kjeldsen did it the hard way, enduring a final-round 5-over-par 39-37=76 at the Dubai Duty Free Irish Open before beating Eddie Pepperell and Bernd Wiesberger at the first extra hole.

Two clear at start of play, the Dane lost his lead with bogeys at the opening two holes and slipped further with a double bogey-6 at the 8th. He steadied the ship with a birdie at 12 and with everyone struggling around him in the strong winds at Royal County Down, the 40-year-old needed a pair of closing pars to take victory. He wobbled with a three-putt at 17 to drop back into a tie and fluffed a chip over the green at the par-5 18th and had to get up and down just to make the playoff mark of 2-under 282 set earlier by Pepperell and Wiesberger. Credit to him in the playoff, though, as he found the green with his second and two-putted for a winning birdie to capture his first European Tour title since the 2009 Open de Andalucia de Golf in Spain. Kjeldsen is now exempt into the World Golf Championships-Bridgestone Invitational in August.

Overnight co-leader Søren Kjeldsen turned in a 4-under-par 32-35=67 for his third round of the Dubai Duty Free Irish Open and owns a two-stroke lead over Maximillian Kieffer and fellow 36-hole co-leader Rafa Cabrera-Bello.

Kjeldsen was one of six atop the leaderboard at the midpoint. He opened with a birdie at the par-5 first and circled another five through 13 holes. He was maintaining the only blemish-free card until squaring a bogey at the par-4 17th. He then closed with a bogey-6 at 18 that yielded only two birdies among 68 golfers that came through today. The Dane celebrated his 40th birthday on May 17. He's a three-time winner on the European Tour but not since 2009. One of the perks for winning this week's test at Royal County Down Golf Club in Northern Ireland is a berth into the World Golf Championships-Bridgestone Invitational in early August. While Kjeldsen still has a long way to go to secure the tee time at Firestone, that he's in position to achieve it is a surprise. Despite improving form of late, he started the week slotted 303rd in the Official World Golf Ranking.

Søren Kjeldsen posted a 1-under-par 34-36=70 in Friday's second round at the Dubai Duty Free Irish Open, good enough for a share of the lead with five others on 3-under 139.

The Dane mixed three birdies and nine pars over the first 12 holes and looked set to assume the outright lead on his own before swallowing bogeys at the fourth and sixth to drop back into a tie. "Today was very rewarding because I putted really well, which is something I haven't really been doing," said Kjeldsen, who was 7-for-9 in scrambling. "The putter saved me a lot. I still hit the ball really well, but I felt like I kept the score more under control today." With scores of 69 and 70, the 40-year-old is one of just three players to have navigated Royal County Down in under par on both Thursday and Friday. He shares the halfway lead with Tyrrell Hatton, Rafa Cabrera-Bello, Chris Wood, Richie Ramsay and Bernd Wiesberger.

Søren Kjeldsen suffered a walk-off bogey-6 at 18 but a 2-under-par 33-36=69 was enough to secure a share of the clubhouse lead on day one of the Dubai Duty Free Irish Open.

The Dane managed to hit 14 greens in regulation in the cold and blustering conditions at Royal County Down and that paved the way for a rare sub-70 lap on the iconic links. For now he's tied for the lead with England's Danny Willett and Argentine Emiliano Grillo. Kjeldsen started fast with three birdies in his first six holes. He wobbled with bogeys at 9 and 10 but got those shots back at 12 and 16 to climb back to 3-under. He split 9 (of 14) fairways and was 3-for-4 in scrambling, the only time he failed to get up and down coming at the last, the resulting bogey denying him the lead on his own.
May 28 - 9:04 AM

Søren Kjeldsen had more birdies than pars on his card in a first-round 4-under-par 35-33=68 at the Trophee Hassan II.

That count was eight to seven while two bogeys and a double bogey-5 filled out a colourful scorecard. Add it all up though and the Dane currently sits in a tie for fifth place and just three off the pace. Kjeldsen split 10 (of 13) fairways and found 13 greens in regulation. His usually tidy short game was a little off as he went just 2-for-5 in scrambling. Last year, the veteran finished outside the top 100 in the Race to Dubai for the first time since his rookie season in 1998. He's just 2-for-7 on the European Tour in 2015 so today's opener is encouraging.

Soren Kjeldsen posted a 4-under-par 68 in the opening round of the BMW International Open.

Kjeldsen hasn't updated his blog since withdrawing from the U.S. Open, but he's obviously fit enough to play again, finishing two strokes off the clubhouse lead. If he's able to control his ear infection, he could be a sleeper at the British Open.

Soren Kjeldsen is listed in the published field of next week's BMW International Open in Germany.

Normally, we wouldn't post this news, but the Dane is eligible for the British Open and has fantasy value in fantasy formats that incorporate the European Tour. He hasn't updated his web site since withdrawing from the U.S. Open on Wednesday with an ear infection. Stay tuned for the next update.

Soren Kjeldsen withdrew from the U.S. Open today, citing an ear infection.

Based on information we relayed last night, this is not surprising. On his web site, Kjeldsen wrote, "At the moment I am devastated to withdraw but the way I feel right now there is no way I could complete a round of golf. I am really looking forward to get this fixed and return to playing golf." Steven Conway or Murrieta, California will replace the Dane and play alongside Soren Hansen and Peter Hanson in the late-early draw.

Soren Kjeldsen wrote on his web site that he's taking antibiotics to relieve water in both inner ears, but it has left him weak.

"I saw the Doctor at the US Open and he send [sic] me to an ear specialist," Kjeldsen wrote. "After having had a good cleaning of my ears, which he hoped would do it, he realised that I had water in both inner ears." The golfer chose medicine over a surgical procedure for relief. "The antibiotics seemed the preferable treatment but the doctor was in doubt whether one of the ingridients [sic] in the medicin [sic] consisted of an illigal [sic] doping item. Fortunately the antibiotics was ok and I have now started a cure that hopefully will help within 1-2 weeks." But right now, it's affecting his game. "I can only hit my driver 210 meters and after an hour on the practice green or driving range I'm totally wasted - not like me at all."
