Just weeks after thinking he had lost his European Tour card, Graeme Storm went head-to-head with Rory McIlroy and claimed the BMW South African Open on the third extra hole after shooting a final round 1-under-par 35-36=71 for 18-under 270 at Glendower GC.
The veteran Englishman secured just his second European Tour title, ten years after his first at the Open de France, in sensational style. He had entered the final day with a 3-shot advantage over McIlroy and although composed most of the day, making an early birdie at the 2nd, he appeared to become somewhat becalmed midway through the back nine when caught and passed by McIlroy. A bogey at 14, his first in 55 holes, was to blame, but he immediately made birdie at the 15th and a bogey for McIlroy at 17 left them tied on the final tee. If he was becalmed he now stood tall under huge pressure. They played 18 once in regulation play, and three times in extra holes, but eventually Storm's relentless pars did the trick when McIlroy slipped to bogey. "I'm in shock," he said afterwards. "A surreal week." Jan 15 - 8:23 AM

Pre-round leader Graeme Storm was coolness personified at the BMW South African Open as he carded a bogey-free 5-under-par 33-34=67 to hit the 54-hole mark on 17-under 199 at Glendower GC, three clear of the world number two Rory McIlroy.

The veteran Englishman was level-par through 13 holes on Thursday, since when he has made 17 birdies and dropped not one shot in 41 holes. Whilst the drama of round two - when he compiled a course record 63 - was not repeated, his third lap 67 was as impressive in its own way, a smart display of ball-striking and course management which kept blue off the card. He made three birdies on the front nine (at 2, 7 and 8), with two on the back (at 13 and 15). In his European Tour career he has held or co-held the lead three times after 54 holes, never winning. Two solo leads on the Challenge Tour, both in 2004, had differing responses: a 3-shot lead was followed by a destructive 84; a two-shot lead was converted. 18 of the last 25 players to lead by 3 at this stage on the European Tour eventually won. McIlroy will be the big threat for Storm.

Graeme Storm torched Glendower GC for a bogey-free 9-under-par 32-31=63, equalling the course record and posting a two-shot clubhouse lead through 36 holes of the South African Open. UPDATE: Play was suspended at 16:50 local time due to thunder and lightning. Round 2 will resume at 07:15 on Saturday morning.

After taking just 24 putts in an opening 69, Storm's blade stayed hot as he set the target of 12-under 132, Right now, that's two clear of local stars Jbe Kruger and Trevor Fisher, Jr. along with American Peter Uihlein. The Englishman, who looked to have lost his tour card last year but was given a reprieve after Patrick Reed didn't play in enough events, set the tone with three opening birdies from the 10th. After a quiet spell of five pars, Storm then hit the gas again. Draining a monster putt at 18 was the catalyst and he scribbled further circles at 1, 3, 5, 6 and 8. Today's 63 was just one off his career low score of 62. That also came in South Africa at the nearby Joburg Open. "To shoot 63 and only having birdied one of the par fives around here, you know, I've played pretty well," he said. "I tip Rory to win this week because he hits it miles and he hits it straight. If I keep on his tail, I'll be happy."

Graeme Storm returns to Hong Kong GC for the first time since 2010 as he looks to continue his strong start to the season at the UBS Hong Kong Open.

Having retained his playing rights for 2017 by a margin less than narrow (he thought he’d missed out by €100, then discovered much later that Patrick Reed didn’t make enough starts so Storm moved up a spot, and Reed somehow still retained membership; answers on a postcard), the Englishman finished T4 last week at Leopard Creek to get the new season off to a start he hopes won’t end with such baffling drama. It continues here in Fanling, where he will hope good vibes and form can override a pretty ordinary record. He’s 3-for-5, but only once finished inside the top 50, and that was largely due to a standout first round 65 in 2006 which left him T3 before a reversion to mean saw him slip backwards all week to a final position of T19. Not broken 70 in three attempts on a Saturday.

Graeme Storm cruised into solo fifth at the D+D REAL Czech Masters with a third round of 4-under-par 34-34=68 for a 54-hole total of 8-under 208, four behind the leader Thomas Pieters.

The Englishman lies 125th on the Race to Dubai so needs a good week soon to retain his playing rights for the 2017 season. Like many in the field he is all too aware that there are only eight regular tour events after this one. So it was a Moving Day of relative significance for Storm at the Albatross Golf Resort and he went in the right direction. He began with red numbers at 4, 7 and 10 before taking backwards steps with blue numbers at 12 and 14. But three ticks on the last four holes swept him into sole possession of fifth place. He is 12-for-15 in Scrambling this week.

Graeme Storm ticked six birdies in a 4-under-par 34-34=68 first round of the D+D REAL Czech Masters at Albatross Golf Resort in Prague.

The Englishman needed this round because he finds himself heading into the last months of the season at 125th in the Race to Dubai, fighting to retain his card. He has made just the one top ten all year, at the BMW International Open, and unusually failed to cash a check at the Open de France (where he normally mops up a hefty chunk of his card retaining number). On Thursday his round had a neat balance as he made three birdies and on bogey on each nine to join a logjam of seven players two shot behind the leader Ryan Evans. Storm hit 14 greens in regulation and struck 28 putts.

2007 champion Graeme Storm returns to Le Golf National in Paris for the 100th Open de France.

The Englishman enjoys this week in France, in fact this one week every year has accounted for 17% of his European Tour career earnings. His win here - his only victory in 402 starts on the tour - obviously contributed a large chunk of that, but so did his T3 in 2013 and another 6 finishes of T33 or better. Here have been 3 missed cuts in 11 visits, but he does like being on the first page of the leaderboard at this course. He’s ranked 121st on the Race to Dubai, even after last week's T9 at the BMW International Open, so he needs another good showing here to kickstart the summer.

Graeme Storm will be hoping to kick on from a career-best return from Dubai at the True Thailand Classic.

The Englishman makes only his second trip to Thailand but he does have good memories of the country after a round one 66 in the 2007 Johnnie Walker Classic had him T2; he remained in contention until a final round 74 left him T16. His 2015 card was secured by one good result (T2 European Masters), and this year’s card by a T2 in the 2015 European Open. Remarkably they are his only top ten finishes in his last 70 starts. His T18 in Dubai not only righted this season after three missed cuts, but was comfortably his best effort there. In 10 previous visits he’d made just 3 cuts and had a best of T47. It suggests he may have found something with his game.

Graeme Storm found his rhythm at the end of 2015 and hopes he'll continue on the right path at this week's BMW South African Open.

The Englishman looked as if he'd be battling to keep his card but closed out the season by making his final eight cuts. That run included a second place at the Porsche European Open and his final position of 61st on the Race to Dubai was his highest placing since 49th in 2009. Storm hasn't had the best of times in South Africa and missed the cut in this event two seasons ago. In fact, he hasn't posted a top 20 in this part of the world in his last 14 starts.

Graeme Storm backed up his opening 65 with a 4-under-par 34-33=67 in round two of the Porsche European Open and is in a three-way tie for the lead.

The Englishman launched his afternoon lap at Golf Resort Bad Griesbach with an eagle-3 and added three more birdies at 16, 3 and 5 against a single bogey at 13 to reach 10-under 132 at the midpoint. That puts him level at the top with compatriot Ross Fisher and South African Charl Schwartzel. Storm split 9 (of 13) fairways and hit 14 greens in regulation today and was 4-for-4 in scrambling. It's been eight years since his only European Tour win (the 2007 Open de France) but he's put himself in position to end that drought this weekend.

Graeme Storm toured the Beckenbauer course in 6-under-par 32-33=65 to post the early clubhouse lead on day one of the Porsche European Open at Golf Resort Bad Griesbach.

Storm gathered three birdies on each nine, launching his bogey-free round with par breakers at 10 and 12. He picked up further shots at 15, 2, 7 and 9 and complemented those with pars the rest of the way. The Englishman split 10 (of 13) fairways in Germany this morning and hit 15 greens in regulation while 3-for-3 scrambling kept his card clean. This is Storm's lowest first-round score of the season, beating by one the 66 he put up when T20 at last month's Made In Denmark. He followed that with T17 at the Czech Masters and was also T44 in Italy last week (R2 66) so this round doesn't come out of the blue despite his lowly position of 127th on the Race To Dubai.

Graeme Storm heads to this week's D+D REAL Czech Masters at Albatross Golf Resort on the back of a T20 at the Made In Denmark.

That was the Englishman's first top 20 of the season but the fourth time he'd cashed in his last five starts. He may only be 129th on the Race To Dubai but gamers at least know he's heading in the right direction again after a season of missed cuts. Storm took part in the inaugural Czech Masters 12 months ago but played only two rounds after shooting 75-74.

With his joint-second lowest round of the season, Graeme Storm is an early contender at the Made in Denmark at Himmerland Golf & Spa Resort.

The Englishman pieced together a 5-under-par 32-34=66 in Thursday's first round and is just three shots adrift of clubhouse leader David Horsey. Storm circled birdies at 10, 13, 14 and 15 on his opening nine and added two more at 6 and 8. His only bogey came on the par-4 12th hole. Hitting fairways didn't seem important today. Leader Horsey split just 6 (of 14) and Storm took one less but still managed to hit 13 greens in regulation. He was 4-for-5 in scrambling and took 27 putts.

Graeme Storm is 132nd on the Race To Dubai heading into this week's Made In Denmark at Himmerland Golf & Spa resort.

Storm was a victim of Saturday's strong winds in this event last year, shooting a 78 in round three before responding with a closing 69 to post T61. He's had this struggles this year although T33 in the Open de France and T37 at the Omega European Masters in Switzerland hint at a long overdue first top 20 of the campaign. The Englishman has finished outside the top 100 in the European Money list just once in the last 10 years so usually finds an extra gear at some point.

Graeme Storm will play Andrew Johnston in the opening round of the Saltire Energy Paul Lawrie Match Play at Murcar Links Golf Club in Aberdeen.

Their head-to-head tees off at 14:25 local time and is the fifth last of the 32 day one matches. Storm has struggled for form this season although he's shown better signs in recent starts with a T33 in the Open de France and a T37 in last week's Omega European Masters. Less appealing is the fact that he didn't cash in either the Scottish or Irish Opens which were both played on links courses.
