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). Sep 24 - 12:46 PM

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.
