This season started in style in South Africa for Graeme Storm and now he's in line for a nice conclusion there as well after pegging a first round 3-under-par 37-32=69 to lie T6 on the live leaderboard in the Nedbank Golf Challenge.
The Englishman is making the 32nd start of his career in the country, but this week marks his debut at the Gary Player Country Club in Sun City and what a start it was. That said, the manner of his reaching the fourth tee in 1-over could hardly have been predicted, especially as he reached the third tee 2-under after an eagle-3 at the 569-yard par-5 second. Double bogey-6 at No. 3 and bogey at No. 4 ruined all that good work. But his back nine was a complete contrast, witnessing nothing but a sea of red. He ticked 10, 12, 16 and 17 in a rush to the clubhouse which left him only one shot behind a pack of five players in the clubhouse or on the course at 4-under. He said: "Just sort of clicked a little bit more on the back nine and holed a couple of nice putts." Nov 9 - 7:39 AM

Graeme Storm is thrilled about his second shot at the HSBC Champions, his WGC debut, which is hosted by Sheshan International GC in Shanghai, China.

"This time last year," the Englishman wrote on Twitter at the weekend, "I thought I'd lost my card but this year I'm off to China for a WGC event. #thisgameiscrazy #hardgraftpaidoff." It's a line that says it all and he won't care one jot that his only previous experience of Sheshan was back in 2007, before it was WGC, when he shot 79-74 to miss the cut. You might be tempted to believe that the adrenalin rush of knowing what he has achieved in the last 12 months might make him a prospect, but be warned that in 27 appearances in China he is yet to notch one top ten. There are six top 25s in the log book, but a best of T11 in the 2009 China Open doesn't bode too well. His major championship best is T39 in ten tries.

Local man Graeme Storm is making a bid for the British Masters title after a third round 3-under-par 33-34=67 left him T2 on 11-under 199 just one shot behind the leader Robert Karlsson at Close House GC.

The Hartlepool-based golfer admitted earlier in the week that this week has been hectic with plenty of family and friends interested in his progress. Indeed so busy has he been he has found less time for doing range work. Yet that is not impacting on his scoring as he moved into contention during the mid-afternoon rain. On both nines he made one bogey (at 3 and 14), with the front nine witnessing ticks at 1, 5 and 9; the back nine circles at 11 and 17. "Just more of the same," he said after the round. "Fairways and greens for me. I can't blow it over bunkers out there, so I've just got to put it in position and keep the strategy the same and hole a few more putts."

Local man Graeme Storm continued his bid for glory in the British Masters at Close House as a 3-under-par 33-34=67 in Friday's second round kept him in the top 10.

At 8-under 132, the man from nearby Hartlepool is currently T6 on the live leaderboard with day two nearing a close. That's four adrift of leader Tyrrell Hatton but just a single stroke behind second place. Storm found form again with a top three finish in Portugal last week so gamers who took the plunge by adding that result to his local connections are being rewarded so far. The Englishman opened with pars at 10 and 11 before leaping to 8-under with three successive birdies at 12, 13 and 14. But in less than ideal weather, he played the rest of his round in even par via a square at 18 and a circle at 6. He'll carry huge support on the weekend as he seeks his second win of the season following a play-off victory over Rory McIlroy in January's South African Open.

Graeme Storm mobilized the home support to help himself to a 5-under-par lap of 32-33=65 on the Lee Westwood Colt Course at Close House GC, good for T8 after round one of the British Masters.

Storm, winner of this year's South African Open and a top five finisher last week in the Portugal Masters, lives in nearby Hartlepool and had the good wishes and support of the galleries on Thursday afternoon. He opened with a birdie-3 at the first hole and added back-to-back red at 5 and 6 only to give one of the shots away on the 7th. But he rounded the front nine off nicely with birdie-3 at No. 9. The return home was more measured, including seven pars and just the two par breakers at 14 and 16.
Sep 28 - 2:11 PM

Graeme Storm confirmed his return to form with a final lap of 4-under-par 33-34=67 to total 15-under 269 and finish T3 in the Portugal Masters, five shots back of winner Lucas Bjerregaard.

Last October the Englishman left the Dom Pedro Victoria Golf Course in Vilamoura a disconsolate figure having missed out on his card for this season, only to be reprieved by a technicality (Patrick Reed failed to complete membership requirements). This year he leaves having picked up the thread of form that has seen him hit the top 40 in the Race to Dubai. His nines were similar: Both had three birdies (at 1, 3 and 9, then 10, 11 and 17), whilst they also both had a bogey apiece (at 7 and 13). He was never in the hunt for the win, but this is his fourth top six finish of a fine year (which also, of course, included a win in the South African Open).

Nearly twelve months on from his card-loss scare, Graeme Storm is celebrating in style at the Portugal Masters; his second round 5-under-par 32-34=66 leaves him T6 on 9-under 133 at the halfway stage.

The Englishman suffered the agony of believing his failure to get up-and-down on the final green in this tournament last year had cost him his tour card, only to be reprieved when Patrick Reed failed to complete the requisite number of tournaments for membership. Storm has never made the top 20 in nine visits to the Dom Pedro Victoria Golf Course in Vilamoura, but is giving it a good go this week, boosted by those strangely mixed memories. His second lap moved him into the top ten thanks to two braces of birdies, at 1 and 2, then 13 and 14. In between he broke par at 5 and 9 for the second day in succession, but dropped a shot at No. 6. He hits the weekend three shots behind leader Nino Bertasio.
Sep 22 - 2:10 PM

Graeme Storm, the 2007 winner, fired a 5-under-par 33-33=66 in his second round at the Open de France, moving 43 spots up the leaderboard to T4 and just three behind leader Adrian Otaegui.

Storm's record at Le Golf National (also third in 2013) and bouts of impressive play this season made him a sleeper pick this week and so far he's justifying those expectations after reaching the midpoint on 5-under 137. A fast start was the key to his day as he burst out of the gates with circles at 2, 3, 5 and 6. The Englishman, who had to settle for a 71 on Thursday, suffered a bogey-6 at 9 but then hit the birdie trail again with gains at 11, 14 and 16. A bogey at 17 for the second day running was a slight frustration but this is another good day's work from Storm and he's in position to strike again on the weekend and attempt to win at Le Golf National for the second time.

Graeme Storm is having a profitable time in 2017 and makes the BMW International Open in Germany his next European Tour stop.

After beating Rory McIlroy in a play-off to land the South African Open in January, the English veteran has continued to play well, making his last seven cuts. Very recent form shows T6 in the BMW PGA Championship at Wentworth and T15 in the Lyoness Open in Austria. He'll look to carry that good play to Golfclub München Eichenried where he's 8-for-10. Storm has a best of T4 in 2009 and top 25s in 2008 and 2011. He also played this event at Gut Larchenhof last year and finished T9 while in the 2015 European Open in Germany the 39-year-old finished runner-up so there are plenty of strong form lines to suggest another good week.
Jun 20 - 7:05 PM

Graeme Storm hung up a 3-under-par 35-34=69 on day two of the Lyoness Open in Austria, nudging up three spots on the live leaderboard to solo second place.

Storm is now leader Felipe Aguilar's closest challenger in the clubhouse after posting 7-under 137 at the midpoint to sit just two shots behind the Chilean. The Englishman started his afternoon lap of Diamond Country Club with a par 5 at the 1st but then made his move by posting red numbers at 2 and 4. As in his opening 68, Storm made par from Nos. 5-8 before swallowing a bogey at the 9th. A bounceback birdie was followed by another bogey at 11 but he pulled to within two of the lead with gains at 13 and 16. After three missed cuts and a T10 in this tournament in four previous visits, his feast or famine performances look set to continue.
Jun 9 - 12:08 PM

Graeme Storm cruised Diamond Country Club to post a first round 4-under-par 35-33=68, one behind the clubhouse lead at the Lyoness Open.

The Englishman has an enigmatic record on Thursday in Vienna. Three times he has sailed over par (73, 74, 75), in 2013 he carded 66 for T3 and this year there something similar - he was T6 on the live leaderbard midway through the afternoon. His card was a mostly neat affair. He made back-to-back birdies on the front nine at 3 and 4, before taking a step back with bogey at 9. But there were no errors on the home straight, as he instead ticked 11, 14 and 16. It was his 11th lap of the track and only the third time he has gone sub-71.
Jun 8 - 11:50 AM

Graeme Storm birdied three of his final four holes in a 5-under-par 36-32=68 in round two of the Nordea Masters in Sweden, good enough for a share of the 36-hole clubhouse lead with Max Orrin on 5-under 141.

Storm also shot a 68 in the final round of last week's BMW PGA Championship at Wentworth to post T6 so came into this week with confidence. He didn't really have his best stuff in an opening 73 but picked off five birdies on his inward nine at Barseback Golf & Country Club today to surge into T1. Starting at 10, the Englishman made a par-par start and then ticked the par 5s at 12 and 16 before dropping a shot at 17. On his second nine, the front, he scribbled circles at 2 and 3, bogeyed 4 for the second day running and then finished with a flourish thanks to red numbers at 6, 8 and 9. Storm has missed the cut in this event for the last four years but this time he'll not only make the weekend, he'll go into it with genuine hope of his second win of 2017 after beating Rory McIlroy in a play-off at January's South African Open.
Jun 2 - 7:41 AM

Graeme Storm shot bookend 68s when T6 at Wentworth on Sunday and he'll look to build on that impressive finish in this week's Nordea Masters in Sweden.

Storm beat Rory McIlroy in a play-off to win the South African Open in January but actually banked more Race to Dubai points for his big week at the money-spinning BMW PGA Championship. Also T21 in Qatar and T22 at the Tshwane Open, the Englishman now hopes to improve a poor recent run in Sweden. He's missed his last four cuts in the Nordea Masters and also failed to cash in his only start at this week's course, Barseback Golf & Country Club. On the plus side, he did deliver four straight top 20s in Sweden in the early part of his career although three of those were in Challenge Tour events. Storm was second for greens in regulation at Wentworth so clearly he's striking his irons well as he heads to Scandinavia.
May 30 - 5:38 AM

Graeme Storm slots in at 35th on the Race to Dubai as he lines up for this week's Shenzhen International in China.

Storm had his big moment earlier this year when beating Rory McIlroy in a playoff to land January's South African Open. Not surprisingly, he hasn't been able to hit the same heights since but the Englishman has still managed to cash in four of his last five starts and register top 25s in two of them. That includes T22 at the Tshwane Open on his latest outing so this is Storm's first appearance in over a month. He missed the cut on his first two looks at Genzon GC but managed to shoot three under-par rounds when T45 in the 2016 Shenzhen International. The 39-year-old has made the weekend in three of his last four starts in China.
Apr 19 - 3:52 AM

Graeme Storm should have plenty of positive thoughts flooding through him as he heads back to South Africa to contest the Joburg Open for a fifth time.

Royal Johannesburg & Kensington GC's West course, the easier of the two layouts and played once over the opening 36 holes, was the scene of his lowest ever round on the European Tour, a 9-under 62 in the 2013 event. He struggled the rest of that week but returned 12 months later to take T22. Since then the Englishman has added T65 and MC. Of course, the other strong memories for Storm this week will be sparked by his most recent trip to South Africa which saw him unexpectedly win a final-day duel with Rory McIlroy to capture last month's BMW SA Open in a playoff. He also made the top four in December's Alfred Dunhill Championship so no wonder the 38-year-old says in this week's European Tour player blog that he loves coming to this part of the world. Since his SA Open win, which included a Friday 63, Storm has finished T21 in Qatar and T39 in Dubai before an MC in Malaysia.
