Marcel Siem returns from a two-week break and tees it up in The Rocco Forte Open at Verdura GC in Italy.
Siem, who plays the first two rounds alongside local man Andrea Pavan and former Masters champion Trevor Immelman, has only cashed three times in 10 starts this season. At least he made the cut last time when T42 in the Volvo China Open and he finished that event with a 68. The German is still looking for the form that saw him finish 7th on the 2014 Order of Merit although he hasn't gone as backwards as it sometimes seems having finished 67th (2015) and 88th (2016) in the last two seasons. Siem has some strong form in Italy from way back with a 4th (2008), a 6th (2004) and a 10th (2005) in the Italian Open so will hope to tap into those memories in a field where, at his best, he'd expect to be a strong challenger.

Marcel Siem is in need of a good run of form as he prepares to tee it up in this week’s Shenzhen International at Genzon GC.

The German finished T3 on his last appearance in China, at the national Open, and he is also a past winner of the BMW Masters (in Shanghai in 2014), but otherwise his record in China is not overwhelming with success. In fact he has only three times in 18 starts ended the week better than T34 (T46 and MC on this layout). It’s a record much like his form. In fact that T3 in last year’s China Open is the highlight of his play over the last 12 months. His next best effort was T11 in the British Masters and then T29 in the Indian Open. Seeking a tenth successful year of retaining his card he will need to up his efforts this season and for most of last – it was only two top fives which left him 88th on the Race to Dubai. Putts per Round might not be the finest stat with which to judge a golfer, but the fact he averages 31.88 this year cannot be good news. Like his Score Average of 73.41 it is comfortably the worst he has recorded since 2010. Missed the cut last week in Morocco.

Marcel Siem posted the joint-best score of the afternoon wave in round one of the Maybank Championship in Malaysia, handing in a bogey-free 6-under-par 32-34=66 to slot in at T3 and just three behind leader Marc Warren.

The German is coming off a wretched Desert Swing where he missed the cut in Abu Dhabi and Dubai (78-76) and was disqualified after round one of the Qatar Masters. He also failed to cash at the South African Open last month. However, it was a different story today at a Saujana G&CC where he posted T48 in the 2009 Malaysian Open. Starting at 10, Siem opened with three straight pars before making a move by splashing red at four of his next six holes (13, 14, 16 and 18). He picked up further shots at 2 and 6 and kept his card clean with an impressive up and down at No. 9, celebrating the 66th shot of his round with a fist-pump.

Marcel Siem rediscovered some form with T11 in last week's British Masters and makes the Portugal Masters in Vilamoura his next stop.

The German is continuing his comeback from a shoulder injury and admitted at The Grove that he hadn't touched a club for seven weeks after taking time off in July, a break from the game he hadn't had since a child. Rust showed in his first few tournaments back as he missed three straight cuts but he cashed at the European Open (T67) and Alfred Dunhill Links Championship (T62) and kicked on with an impressive week in England. Notably, he hit 86.1% of greens in regulation in the British Masters to rank second for the week. Siem has played in all nine editions of the Portugal Masters, making seven cuts and posting fourth in 2009. He also cracked the top 25 in 2013 and 2014.

Marcel Siem has alarming form worries to address as he prepares to tee it up in the KLM Open at the The Dutch course in Spijk.

Two top ten finishes – in the Abu Dhabi Golf Championship and China Open – have bolstered a season of transition for the German. Having pegged a career best season in 2014 (7th on the Race to Dubai) he dipped to 67th last year whereupon he decided to overhaul his background team and is currently 80th. The big worry would be that since carding four rounds in the 60s to finish T3 in China he hasn't broken 70 once – in the right way at least because he has notched three rounds in the 80s. His last appearance in this event offers hope because he led after 18 holes and was T2 after 36. But he then reverted to type in the country: his T12 was a best finish in 10 visits and the first in the top 40.

Marcel Siem has plenty of experience in the Dubai Duty Free Irish Open, but his results there, and elsewhere in Ireland, have flattered to deceive.

You could say that the German burns out quickly on the Emerald Isle because in 4 of the last 7 Irish Open he has found himself inside the top 4 after 18 holes. Furthermore he was 1st at halfway in 2011 and T2 after 36 holes in 2008. In a sense impressive, but once he's played the full 72 holes the record book looks poor. Indeed, in 17 starts in Ireland he has only twice inside the top 25 and never better than T14 (in the 2014 Irish Open). Form-wise he’ll be keen to get back on the course after finishing T3 in the China Open during late April, a week in which he ranked #1 for All Round. It was his second top five finish of the year after T5 in Abu Dhabi.

Marcel Siem came from off the pace to shoot to T3 at the Volvo China Open with a final round 6-under-par 33-33=66, 18-under 270 for the week.

The German ended 2014 with success in the BMW Masters, also in China, and his career was then at its height, but a poor 2015 followed and he transformed his swing and back-up team as a consequence. Despite a T5 in Abu Dhabi the fruits of that hard work have been mostly dry; he was 1-for-6 coming into the week. But perhaps after the false start of Abu Dhabi, this is the kick start he needs. He was bogey free in round four, posting red at 3, 6 and 8 on the front nine, then reeling off three on the bounce at 14, 15 and 16 to close. He liked the Topwin Golf & CC greens, needing just 110 putts all week.

Marcel Siem continues his rebuilding process with a tournament debut in the True Thailand Classic at Black Mountain GC.

The 35-year-old German is not only a four time winner on the European Tour. In collecting prestigious wins in 2012, 2013 and 2014 he elevated himself into the tour’s higher echelons; indeed he currently sits 49th in the career money list. But last year he went winless and decided to reconstruct his team and game. A T5 in Abu Dhabi offered early evidence of its success, as did top 30 finishes in Joburg and Qatar, but he arrives in Thailand fresh from two missed weekends in Dubai and Malaysia. His only previous visit to the country saw him play just two rounds in the 2004 Johnnie Walker Classic.

Marcel Siem will be looking to maintain the rebuilding process at the Maybank Championship Malaysia this week at Royal Selangor GC.

The German is a somewhat surprising 49th in the European Tour career money list, just one spot behind Sir Nick Faldo, thanks to four victories and retaining his card 13 of the last 14 seasons. But after a career high 7th on the Race to Dubai in 2014 he slipped to 67th last term, best highlighted by the fact he won the 2014 BMW Masters and 12 months later started the same event 72-80. He overhauled his game and team during the winter and duly made a promising T22 at the Joburg Open followed by T5 in Abu Dhabi, but then went backwards: T29 in Qatar, MC in Dubai. He’s 5-for-7 in Malaysia, but yet to make a top ten.

Marcel Siem captured the BMW Masters in Shanghai 12 months ago and will bid to win the trophy again this week.

The German took the title in dramatic style in 2014, chipping in from the edge of the green to beat Alexander Levy and Ross Fisher in the first hole of a sudden-death playoff. Siem returns to Lake Malaren only 67th on the Race to Dubai so needs to bank enough points to climb into the top 60 who contest the big money in next week's season-ending DP World Tour Championship in Dubai. The four-time European Tour winner is struggling for form having cashed just once in his last three tournaments but history shows he can suddenly find form out of the blue. He'll need to do that in China this week to keep his season going.

Marcel Siem returned a 2-under-par 35-35=70 in his second round at the PGA Championship to reach 4-under 140 at the midpoint.

That's just three swings behind clubhouse leader David Lingmerth and, for now, puts the German in a tie for 10th spot. Siem started out with a birdie at 10 before back-to-back bogeys at 12 and 13. However, a bogey at 3 was his only other blemish and he secured a second successive round of 70 via further birdies at 14, 16, 1 and 6. Siem was T12 in last year's U.S. Open so could be a somewhat surprise contender on the weekend. He split 7 (of 14) fairways, hit 14 greens in regulation and was 3-for-4 in scrambling.

Marcel Siem painted an eventful even-par 36-34=70 in his opening round at the World Golf Championships-Bridgestone Invitational in Akron, Ohio.

The German had five birdies, five bogeys and eight pars on his card but needed to drain some lengthy putts to avoid the round getting away from him. Siem converted from 48'7" at 4, 21'5" at 8 and 31'4" at 11 and completed his birdie set with another pair from just inside 10 feet at 16 and 17. His bogeys came at 2, 3, 7, 10 and 18. At the last count, Siem's strokes gained: putting registered 3.123.

After missing the cut in the 144th Open Championship, Marcel Siem will try his luck in this week's Omega European Masters.

The German was looking good at St. Andrews after an opening 70 but ended up shooting a shot too many after following it with a 75. Siem is a former runner-up at this week's venue -- the beautiful Crans-sur-Sierre in the Swiss Alps -- and will be teeing it up there for the 11th time. As well as a second place in 2006, he also cracked the top 15 in both 2011 and 2012. His 36-hole exit in Scotland ended a run of three straight cuts which included a T24 in the Open de France.

Marcel Siem is back at a familiar venue this week as he contests the BMW International Open at Golfclub München Eichenried.

The German always returns home to support his local event and this will be his 14th start on the tree-lined par 72. Siem has missed five cuts down the years but posted T10 on his last visit and was T14 before that. The worry is his current form. The four-time European Tour winner is on a miserable run of five straight missed cuts, a sequence that extended when he shot twin 73s to crash out after 36 holes of last week's U.S. Open at Chambers Bay.

Marcel Siem slots in at 40th on the Race to Dubai heading into this week's Dubai Duty Free Irish Open at Royal County Down.

The current thermometer reading was cold after the German missed his third straight worldwide cut when failing to make the weekend in the BMW PGA Championship at Wentworth. But earlier today he shot 70-68 in U.S. Open qualifying at Walton Heath to book his place at Chambers Bay. This will be Siem's 12th start in the Irish Open and he's 6-for-6 since failing to cash in three of his first four. His best result came at Fota Island last year when T14 after a closing 65.
