Dubuisson looking for rankings boost

Home

Victor Dubuisson will look to take his recent run of good form into this week's Czech Masters.

The Frenchman is offering odds of 12/1 for this week's European Tour event following his top-20 showing at the PGA Championship two weeks ago.

"I am looking forward to it. Last year I couldn’t play, so I am happy to be here this year. It is a great opportunity to have another win," he told the European Tour.

"This week will be a good week to try to win and try to get my Race to Dubai ranking up. 

"This year has not been as good as it was last year for me – it's not a great season, so I really hope to do well this week and get my ranking up. 

"I will do my best and I think the course will suit me."

Last year's Czech champion, Jamie Donaldson, shared his knowledge of the course with Dubuisson.

"Jamie told me it is a good, difficult course – especially when it is windy," said Dubuisson.

"He said they had a lot of wind on a few rounds last year. 

"He said it is really long, and I spoke with a few people here who said it has been raining a lot last week and the rough is very steep. So it will be a good challenge, especially if the wind is up."

Dubuisson admits to having struggled on the greens not too long ago, but a decision to switch putters has being paying dividends.

"My form is starting to come back a little bit," he added. 

"The problem was my putting. For six months my putting was really, really bad. I had to do something, so I changed my putter. 

"I worked quite a bit on it, and the last few weeks I’m doing better. I had a good result in the US PGA and I feel I am going to have a good end to the season."
