Marcel Siem crafted a bogey-free 9-under-par 31-32=63 at Pebble Beach Golf Links in the third round of the AT&T Pebble Beach National Pro-Am, moving to 12-under 203 for the tournament.
Simply put, Siem had a walk to remember. His round featured seven birdies and an eagle, with four of those birdies dropping from between 12 and 19 feet and the eagle flying in from the rough to the right of the green on the par-5 sixth hole. He split 11 of 14 fairways and landed 15 GIR, all while gaining over three strokes with his flat stick. He just missed the course record of 62 by one stroke. The record is shared by Tom Kite and David Duval. Feb 14 - 4:54 PM

Marcel Siem will be trying to make a ninth successive cut in the Commercial Bank Qatar Masters at Doha Golf Club.

The German crashed out at halfway in three of his first four visits but has a perfect record since. Despite that, he will be keen improve a modest set of finishing positions. Beyond a 12th place in 2012, he's not managed another top 30 and hasn't carded two rounds in the 60s since 2004. Siem got hot in the final two months of 2014 by winning the BMW Masters in China and also finishing T8 in the Turkish Airlines Open and fourth in the Nedbank Golf Challenge.

On the only playoff hole needed, Marcel Siem chipped in from the fringe for birdie at the par-4 18th hole to secure victory over Ross Fisher and 54-hole leader Alexander Levy at the BMW Masters.

Siem's tee ball was the best of the bunch, but he was the only not to find the putting surface on approach. It didn't matter and the other two sent their birdie tries right of the cup. (To view Siem's chip-in, click here.) Fisher started the finale 11 strokes back of the Frenchman and would have set a European Tour record for largest comeback to win in a finale. That the Brit even had a chance required Levy to shift it in reverse. He obliged with a 6-over-par 38-40=78 to post 16-under 272 at Lake Malaren Golf Club in Shanghai, China. Fisher (67) and Siem (73) would match to set the stage for Siem's theatrics. It's the German's fourth European Tour title and first since 2013. Today's exempts him into next week's WGC-HSBC Champions and the 2015 WGC-Bridgestone Invitational. After starting the week sitting 152nd in the Official World Golf Ranking, Siem will climb to approximately 70th in the next update.

Marcel Siem will compete in the HP Byron Nelson Championship this week on a foreign exemption.

This marks his second start in a PGA TOUR event this season, with the first resulting in a missed cut in Puerto Rico. He pulled the same exemption a year ago, finishing in a tie for 33rd at TPC Four Seasons. He has slipped to 159th in the Official World Golf Ranking, whereas he was 56th a year ago.

After missing the cut at The Open Championship, Marcel Siem tees it up for the eighth time in a PGA TOUR event at the RBC Canadian Open.

He’s a non-member, but events such as the Valero Texas Open, Zurich Classic of New Orleans and HP Byron Nelson Championship can easily lead one to ponder if he’s quietly making a run at a 2013-14 PGA TOUR card. His T10 at the Valero represents his only top-30 finish, so he has work to do if status for next season is his aim.

Marcel Siem put together a 2-under-par 33-35=68 in the third round of the HP Byron Nelson Championship and enters the final round at 6-under 204.

Siem circled five birdies and squared a bogey and a double bogey on his lap around TPC Four Seasons. His shot of the day came early, knocking an approach from 207 yards out of the rough to eight inches on the par-4 third. Should he ever decide to relocate from Germany to the U.S., perhaps Texas is the likely destination. He tied for 10th in San Antonio earlier this season.

Marcel Siem will tee it up in the HP Byron Nelson Championship.

Siem is a non-member, but playing for the fifth time on American soil. His only other trip to Texas resulted in a T10 at the Valero Texas Open, so the Lone Star State could provide the perfect backdrop for a successful maiden voyage at TPC Four Seasons. Given his commitment to playing in the U.S. at this point of the schedule, it's plausible that he's trying to earn enough money for a Special Temporary Membership and a spot on TOUR next season.

Marcel Siem fired a 3-under-par 33-36=69 in the final round of the Valero Texas Open, but his 7-under 281 total was unable to accomplish his ultimate goal of winning and earning a Masters invite.

Siem was charging hard, circling six birdies to one bogey in his first 11 holes and closing in on the leaders. He unraveled on the par-4 12th, going from a fairway bunker to a greenside bunker and then over the green. He eventually settled for a triple-bogey seven, thus ending his chances to win. He added a birdie at the 15th, ensuring a top-10 finish and a spot in the Zurich Classic of New Orleans if he so chooses, but Augusta National will have to wait.

Marcel Siem posted a 3-under-par 34-35=69 in the third round of the Valero Texas Open, improving to 4-under 212.

Siem was the last man out of the top 50 after winning last week in Morocco, coming to TPC San Antonio needing a win to earn the final spot in the Masters' field. He's steadily improved his chances each day, bouncing back from an opening 76 with back-to-back rounds in the 60s. Saturday's round featured five birdies and two bogeys. It will likely take his lowest round of the week if he hopes to drive down Magnolia Lane on Monday.

Marcel Siem has been added to the published field of this week's Valero Texas Open.

Siem was granted a sponsor exemption into the tournament. He'll be making the trip from Morocco where he recorded his third victory on the European Tour on Sunday. At the moment he clinched the win, he climbed inside the top 50 of the Official World Golf Ranking, but then slipped to 51st once the results of the Shell Houston Open were plugged in. As a result, he's not yet eligible for the Masters. The last exemption into the major will be given to the winner of the VTO. The German hasn't posted a top 25 in nine career starts on the PGA TOUR.

At 17-under-par 64-68-69-70=271, Marcel Siem recorded a three-stroke victory at the Trophée Hassan II in Agadir, Morocco.

Siem established a three-shot cushion in his opening round and didn't trail thereafter. He converted two eagles and 21 birdies at Golf du Palais Royal en route to his third career title on the European Tour. David Horsey and Mikko Ilonen shared runner-up honors. The only golfer inside the top 60 of the Official World Golf Ranking in the field was Francesco Molinari (39th), who placed T15. Siem started the week 72nd in the OWGR. With the victory, he'd climb just inside the top 50 and earn a berth into the Masters, but golfers at the Shell Houston Open could prevent him from crashing the field at Augusta National. The top 50 at the conclusion of golf today will be exempt into the season's first major.

Marcel Siem is rewarded with a match against 2011 World Golf Championships-Accenture Match Play Championship winner Luke Donald in his first taste of this event.

The German will have nothing to lose and everything to gain as he sets out on his quest to conquer the Snead Bracket. Unlike the NCAA basketball tournament where a number 16 seed has never knocked off a top seed, it has happened on occasion in this event. In fact, just last year Ernie Els dusted Luke Donald to accomplish the feat. The pressure will be on Donald to not let that happen again.

Marcel Siem closed the Alstom Open de France with a 4-under-par 33-34=67, emerging with a one-stroke victory over Francesco Molinari.

Siem played his first 17 holes today in bogey-free 5-under before bogeying the last. He posted 8-under 276. Molinari opened with a double bogey-6 today before rattling off nine birdies en route to a 64, easily the low round of the day, but ultimately one stroke too high. Siem led the tournament after 36 holes before giving way to Anders Hansen and David Howell following a third-round 73. Hansen faded to a T11 with a Sunday 75 while Howell settled for a share of fourth place after a 72. This is Siem's second career European Tour victory. The timing is tremendous in that it exempts him into both the British Open and World Golf Championships-Bridgestone Invitational.
