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.

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.

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.

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.

Marcus Fraser is set for his first try at the World Golf Championships-Accenture Match Play Championship.

Fraser is fresh off a T5 at the Omega Dubai Desert Classic. His first match in the Hogan Bracket will be against U.S. Ryder Cup stud Keegan Bradley. Bradley sports a mere 1-1 record, having played Dove Mountain for the first time in 2012.

Marcus Fraser withdrew from the final stage of Q School after his fourth round.

The Aussie entered Saturday's action at 8-under-par, but coughed up a 5-over 36-41=77 at PGA West's Stadium Course to post 3-under 285 after 72 holes. That placed him T115 on the leaderboard, nine strokes outside the top 25. No explanation was provided for his decision.

Marcus Fraser looks to bounce back from a missed cut at the British Open when he tees it up at this year's PGA Championship.

Fraser's most recent high finish was a solo second at the BMW International Open. Playing mainly on the European Tour, the Aussie ranks a distant 209th in driving distance and 193rd in GIR.

By virtue of finishing second on the Order of Merit on the PGA of Australia, Marcus Fraser is now exempt into the World Golf Championships-Cadillac Championship.

The top two in earnings receive exemptions into the limited field, no-cut tournment at Doral in March. The Aussie stormed home at the JBWere Masters with a 7-under-par 31-33=64 that included eight birdies to take second place. The six-figure payday moved him into position for the berth into the WGC where he'll be making his second appearance (T45, 2011).

Australian Marcus Fraser posted a third and final round of 3-under-par 69 to win the Ballantine's Championship in South Korea.

The Ballantine's Championship on the European Tour was shortened to a 54-hole event after dense fog on Friday. The final margin of victory was four-strokes over Australia's Brett Rumford and Northern Ireland's Gareth Maybin. It is the 31-year-old's second career victory on the European Tour and his first since the 2003 Russian Championship.
