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.
As an amateur he also entered and 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. He qualified for his first European Tour event at 15 years old, at the 2005 Open de France, missing the cut. In 2010 he qualified for The Open Championship, missing the cut; he turned professional shortly after the Open.
Dubuisson finished second in the 2014 WGC-Accenture Match Play Championship to Jason Day. The match play event ended on the 23rd hole. Thanks to this result, 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. He finished 9th at the 2014 Open Championship and 7th at the PGA Championship. At the end of the 2014 PGA Tour season, his total earnings of US$670,000 as a non-member allowed him to earn a PGA Tour card for the 2014–15 season.
In September he gained an automatic selection to represent the winning European team at the 2014 Ryder Cup. He paired with Graeme McDowell in two victorious foursomes matches against Phil Mickelson and Keegan Bradley (won by 3 and 2), and Jimmy Walker and Rickie Fowler (won by 5 and 4); in the final game of the singles, he halved his match with Zach Johnson.
In 2015 Dubuisson shared his time between the European Tour and the PGA Tour. While his season in Europe was successful, with a second win at the Turkish Airline Open, he failed to make an impact in America where he made only 4 cuts in the 10 events, finishing 190th in the FedEx Cup and losing his tour card.
