Biography

Produced one of the standout displays of 2014 when he agonisingly lost to Australian Jason Day in the final of the WGC-Accenture Match Play Championship. After the pair were all square after 18 holes, Dubuisson conjured some incredible shots from the desert to keep the match alive in sudden death, and although Day finally prevailed on the 23rd hole, the Frenchman earned praise from around the world for his performance. Three months earlier he claimed his maiden European Tour title at the Turkish Airlines Open, holding off a group containing Tiger Woods, Justin Rose and Ian Poulter to win with a final round 69. Made a spectacular Ryder Cup debut at Gleneagles, forming a strong partnership with Graeme McDowell and winning two and a half points from three. Came through the 2010 European Tour Qualifying School Final Stage. Started playing golf aged 12 when he watched Woods win the 2002 Masters Tournament and decided he wanted to become a professional. Won the European Individual Amateur Championship in 2009, the year he made it to number one in the World Amateur Rankings. Came 24th in his first tournament as a professional, the 2010 Nordea Scandinavian Masters, but says his prize money of €16,400 went towards paying the rent for his apartment in the expensive French town of Cannes. Good friends with compatriot Jean-Baptiste Gonnet, who lives nearby, and the pair often play golf together. Also enjoys playing squash and tennis.
