2015 has proved to be a successful return for Fraser, he climbed back up the world rankings to 123, and also qualified for the European Tour season ending DP World Tour Championship, eventually finishing 52nd on the final Race To Dubai rankings.

Fraser played in 24 European Tour events in 2015, missing the cut on only 5 occassions.

Fraser, who lives in Melbourne is now looking forward to 2016, " I am pleased with the way 2015 has gone, my game has been consistent, and impotantly my wrist has given me no problems, I am looking forward to next season, and hopefully can get my world ranking back to where is was prior to my injury. "
