Marcus Fraser toured the Earth course in 6-under-par 32-34=66 to set the early target on day one of the DP World Tour Championship in Dubai.
The Aussie, who secured his place in the 60-man field with a T13 in last week's BMW Masters, posted seven birdies and a bogey in his opening lap, splitting 12 (of 14) fairways and hitting 16 greens in regulation. Fraser was quick out of the blocks with birdies at 2, 3 and 4 and he added another at 7 to turn in 32. He kept his charge going with par breakers at 10, 11 and 14 before dropping his only shot of the day at the par-4 16th. After his lowest round at the Earth course gave him a share of the first-round lead with Ian Poulter, Martin Kaymer and Andy Sullivan, Fraser said, "I felt like I played great, felt like I was in control of my game most of the day. I managed to make a couple of putts -- the greens are that good; if you pick the right line and you hit it on line, it's going to go in. It's always nice to get off to a fast start and I kept it going." Nov 19 - 4:36 AM

Marcus Fraser sits in 60th spot on the Race to Dubai going into this week's BMW Masters in China.

That's a significant number as only the top 60 at the of the BMW will earn a spot in the season-ending DP World Tour Championship in Dubai next week. Fraser is the first man the chasing pack will try and pick off so he needs a decent performance. He's played in this event at Lake Malaren just once previously but did well, recovering from an opening 73 to finish T12 in 2013. A repeat performance will punch his ticket to Dubai. As for latest form, the Aussie was T47 at the Turkish Airlines Open and T32 in the UBS Hong Kong Open but, prior to those two events, cracked the top five in the British Masters at Woburn.

Marcus Fraser boasts both course and current form ahead of this week's UBS Hong Kong Open.

The Aussie is coming off a T5 in the British Masters at Woburn a fortnight ago but it's his record at Fanling that should really get gamers' attention this week. Fraser's accuracy off the tee and solid putting has served him well year after year in this tournament and overall he's 7-for-7 with five top 11 finishes. That includes T5 last year when he held the lead going into the final round and third in 2012. He's currently 58th on the Race To Dubai.

Marcus Fraser has slipped to 63rd in the Race To Dubai ahead of this week's Porsche European Open at Golf Resort Bad Griesbach in the south-east of Germany.

Only the top 60 in the rankings qualify for the season-ending DP World Tour Championship, Dubai so the Aussie needs to get the engine running again. Since a T60 at the European Masters in Switzerland, he's played just twice and struggled. He suffered a first-round exit at the Paul Lawrie Match Play in his only start in August while, perhaps showing some rust, missed the cut in last week's Open d'Italia (72-70) after a lengthy break. This is the first time Fraser has teed it up in Germany since he finished runner-up at the BMW International Open at Gut Larchenhof in 2012 so he'll have some positive memories to draw upon when he makes his return.

Marcus Fraser was runner-up in the 2012 Omega European Masters in Switzerland and has some good form going into this year's edition.

As well as that second place three years ago, the Aussie was T15 in 2010 and T20 on his last appearance in 2013 so his accuracy off the tee serves him well at Crans-sur-Sierre. The Aussie will play the event for the 12th time this year and gamers should note some promising recent performances. Fraser posted T15 in the Open de France at the start of the month and recovered from an opening 74 to shoot 69-68-70 and slot in at T20 in last week's Open Championship at St. Andrews.
Jul 21 - 5:02 PM

Marcus Fraser authored a 3-under-par 35-34=69 to lie just one shot off the lead after the first day of the Volvo China Open.

The in-form Aussie has four top 25s in his latest five worldwide starts so this latest lap in the 60s -- the eighth in his last 13 rounds - comes as no surprise. It also matched his previous low 18 at Tomson Shanghai Pudong Golf Club where he's teeing it up for the fifth time. Fraser picked off birdies at 5, 11, 13 and 14 while the only blemish on his scorecard was a bogey-4 at the 12th. At 3-under, he trails co-leaders Michael Hendry, Bradley Dredge and David Howell by a single stroke and should enjoy slightly easier conditions in round two when he goes out early on Friday morning.
Apr 23 - 6:47 AM

Marcus Fraser heads back to the European Tour to contest this week's inaugural Shenzhen International in China.

The Aussie offers plenty of appeal for gamers given his strong recent play and impressive past form in the region. His last European Tour start resulted in a third place in the Indian Open and he followed that by taking T10 in the Australasian Tour's New Zealand Open last month. This week's venue, Genzon GC, is just an hour away from Hong Kong where Fraser often shines. In fact, his overall record in China shows six top 12 finishes in his last 10 starts.
Apr 14 - 5:20 AM

Marcus Fraser's best round of the week has put him firmly in place for a trophy challenge at the Hero Indian Open on Sunday.

The Aussie crafted a bogey-free 4-under-par 34-33=67 on Saturday to move up six spots to solo third on 7-under 206. That's five behind leader S.S.P. Chawrasia and three in arrears of Siddikur Rahman in second. After hitting only 11 and 10 greens respectively over the first two days, Fraser found 14 in round three. And when he did miss, he kept the bogeys away by going 4-for-4 in scrambling. The 36-year-old will be going for a third European Tour win on Sunday and a first since 2010.
Feb 21 - 6:26 AM

Marcus Fraser authored a 1-under-par 34-36=70 to advance to 3-under 139 at the midpoint of the Hero Indian Open.

That's six off the lead but currently good enough for T8 with the afternoon wave close to completing their second laps. Fraser is squeezing the best score possible out of his rounds so far as he's hit just 10 and 11 greens in regulation respectively over the first two days. He's split 9 (of 14) fairways in both rounds at the short and tight Delhi Golf Club so is keeping his trophy bid alive with an efficient short game.
Feb 20 - 5:49 AM

Aussie Marcus Fraser is making his debut in the Hero Indian Open but has previous experience of Delhi Golf Club.

That came way back in 2008 when he finished T38 in the Indian Masters. With tight fairways, this track rewards straight hitting and should play into Fraser's hands. He's cashed in three of his four starts in 2015, finishing T25 in the Maybank Malaysian Open and T31 in the True Thailand Classic since the European Tour embarked upon its trek around Asia. He broke par in all four rounds in Thailand last week so looks a solid choice for gamers this week.
Feb 16 - 6:24 AM

Marcus Fraser lines up in the Maybank Malaysian Open for the 12th straight year and will be hoping to crack the top 10 for the first time.

The Aussie has made nine cuts in that run but hasn't bettered a T12. That actually came at Kota Permai in 2008; his best finish at Kuala Lumpur G&CC is T18 back in 2006. Fraser is playing on a medical extension in 2015 having only teed it up just six times during the previous season due to a hand injury. Fraser missed the cut in Qatar on his last start but was a runner-up in December's Thailand Golf Championship on his most recent outing in Asia.
Feb 2 - 5:46 PM

Marcus Fraser shared runner-up honors at the Thailand Golf Championship, tops among four golfers to earn exemptions into The Open Championship in July.

The top four, not otherwise exempt into the season's third major, inside the top 12 at Amata Spring Country Club secured tee times at St. Andrews. Lee Westwood, who won the inaugural edition of the event in Thailand, clipped Fraser and Martin Kaymer by one stroke this time around. The Aussie will be making his fifth appearance in The Open and second at St. Andrews (2005). Fellow Australian Scott Hend took outright fifth today to grab the second ticket to Scotland. The former PGA TOUR member has been on some kind of run in recent months, picking off five top 10s worldwide, including a win in Hong Kong. He missed the cut in his only previous Open try (2005). India's Anirban Lahiri and Jonathan Moore of the U.S. shared sixth place to round out the qualifiers. Lahiri is 1-for-2 at The Open Championship while Moore will be making his debut.

Marcus Fraser followed his opening 67 at the PGA Championship with a 1-under-par 35-34=69 in his second round.

Given his terrible form in recent weeks, Fraser was arguably the most surprising golfer on the early leaderboard at Oak Hill this week, but he showed today that he's here to contend. He offset three bogeys with four birdies to reel in another red number. At 4-under 136, he's five strokes in arrears of the 36-hole clubhouse lead.

Marcus Fraser submitted a 3-under-par 34-33=67 for his opening round of the PGA Championship.

The Aussie has been mired in a slump since losing in a playoff at the Ballantine's Championship in late April. He's missed six of seven cuts and finished T54 at Muirfield. It appeared Oak Hill would treat him similarly today when he opened bogey-bogey, but he responded with bogey-free golf the rest of the way. He picked off five birdies, including on each of the two par 5s and signed his card sitting one off the clubhouse lead.

Marcus Fraser makes just his second appearance in the U.S. Open this week.

His only previous start was a respectable 45th at Oakmont in 2007. The Aussie is in the field this week as a result of his successful navigation of the qualifier in England at Walton Heath Golf Club. A runner-up at the Ballantine’s Open is his best European Tour finish of 2013.
