Career

Dubuisson was born in Cannes. He enjoyed a successful amateur career, during which he won several major amateur tournaments, including the 2009 European Amateur, and was the number one ranked player for eight weeks from 4 November to 23 December 2009.[2]

He also made the cut in several professional tournaments, the highlight being a third place finish at the 2009 Allianz EurOpen de Lyon on the Challenge Tour.[3]

Dubuisson turned professional in 2010 after playing in The Open Championship, and qualified for the European Tour at that year's qualifying school.[4]

He ended 52nd in the 2012 Race to Dubai. He won for the first time as a professional at the 2013 Turkish Airlines Open.[5] With seven top 10s, he ranked sixth at the 2013 Race to Dubai.

Dubuisson finished second in the 2014 WGC-Accenture Match Play Championship to Jason Day. The match play event ended on the 23rd hole. He earned enough non-member FedEx Cup points to be eligible for "Special Temporary Membership" on the PGA Tour, which he accepted. This allowed him unlimited sponsor exemptions for the remainder of the 2014 season.[6] He finished 9th at the 2014 Open Championship and 7th at the PGA Championship. He had total earnings of US$670,000 on the 2014 PGA Tour. He played well enough on the 2014 PGA Tour as a non-member to earn a PGA Tour card for the 2014–15 season. Also, he qualified directly to represent the winning European team at the 2014 Ryder Cup.
