Fraser impresses on return from injury

Fraser India 2LONDON, UK (24th February 2015) Having reached a career-high world ranking of 51st in February 2013, European Tour ace Marcus Fraser was plagued by a persistent wrist injury. By the start of 2014, he finally submitted to surgery and after considerable rehabilitation returned in November 2014 at the Hong Kong Open.

    Fraser’s ranking had slipped to 292nd and there was uncertainty over how the wrist would respond to the rigours of tournament golf and increased practise, but the results since his comeback have been impressive. The Australian has secured three top five finishes in 11 events – most recently tying for third in the Hero Indian Open in Delhi last weekend – and only missed one cut.
 
    Finishing runner-up in the Thailand Open in December qualified the 36-year-old for the Open Championship at St Andrews in July and he’s currently placed 37th in the 2015 Race to Dubai and has moved back up the world rankings to 156th.

    Speaking from his Melbourne home where he has returned for a break before April’s PGA European Tour in China, Fraser said: “So far things have gone very well – possibly better than expected.

    “It was always going to be hard to tell how my wrist would react when back playing full-time and how I would play after such a long lay-off, but to be where I am after 11 events, and having already qualified for the Open Championship at St Andrews in July is very pleasing. I am now really looking forward to the upcoming events in Europe this summer.”
