KLM Open - Kennemer GC- Holland

Kennemer, Tuesday 9 September 2014

After two days in Belgium, I arrived safely in Zandvoort to play the KLM Open. Thanks Daan Slooter for your invite, you know that I have a great respect for your (your team) capacity to organize such a big event so close to our country. All my congrats to you, dear neighbours. I'm a great fan of all tournaments organized on the European continent, our craddle of golf!

I enjoyed quite a lot those two days spent with friends, it was refreshing to be back on homesoil even if can't complain of this Swiss week. On Monday at Ravenstein with the Business club of the Leopold Club (field hockey) invited by Softimat, the company of good friend Bernard Lescot. And on Tuesday, Knauf had the brillant idea to bring some invitees together at the Naxhelet Golf Club. What a discovery! I'm so proud to witness that, in Belgium, some people who bravely build such ambitious golf course with splendid infrastructure. A future jewel on the Belgian crown... Félicitations Françoise and Bernard Jolly! Like always this Knauf golf day was perfectly organized by Lothar Knauf, Serge Azaïs and Patrick Renard. They are members of my golfing family! Thanks for your support.

Kennemer week = intense week. Wednesday: Training early morning then Press conference then Pro-Am at 1.00 PM!

Swiss European Masters

Crans-Montana, Monday 1 September 2014

[Vincent:] Flory Van Donck pro-Am today. Flory was a Pro here in Crans, he was the teacher of Olivier Barras, a great young Swiss player, 8 times Swiss champion, who unfortunately lost his life during a car crash on the Monza circuit in 1964...

By the way, did you know that Flory has been also, and for a long time, coach on the National German amateur Team?

Crans is not an easy course for Nicolas, the golfballs are flying so far at this altitude, difficult to control the exact distance. The main concern will be on the greens, Nicolas needs to regain confidence and lower his putting average, even if the long game is great and that he's hitting a lot of greens... But for now all is in the putting...

Change in the schedule: the KLM Open is in, good to play at our neighbors in Kennemer.

Italian Open by Damiani - Torino

Brussels, Monday 25 August 2014

Even if the Belgian weather is in super form, this Monday was a great moment meeting Thierry Neuville, Andre Lotterer, this week-end heroes. This Stars and Drives day is a great initiative by Monroe to bring some motor sport and sport(wo)men in general (Xavier Malisse, Philipe Saive and many others). Special Congrats to Thierry for his extraordinar win in the WRC Rally in Germany. A real stunt!

Very early start tomorriow to Italy, for a great tournament site: Circolo do golf Torino La Mandria. This is the home of the Brothers Molinari, a rare quality place! I love the food, the language, the course and the people...

Made in Denmark - European Tour

Brussels, Monday 11 August 2014

Vincent: After an important fine tuning with Mich Vanmeerbeek in St Nom la Bretèche last week, Nicolas is ready to return on Tour tomorrow. Direction Denmark, for the Made in Denmark Open. Mich and Nicolas worked a lot on the putting routine with a new line on the ball to ensure a right set up. All the tunings are implemented to recover Nicolas' confidence on the greens.

Program: 4 weeks tournaments in a row: Denmark, Prague, Torino and Crans-sur-Sierre. After that, a week off before Wales and the Kings of Golf, the Charity at Royal Zoute with Txema Olazabal.

Exceptional win Rory at The Open!

Congrats Rory McIroy and Cheers the Belgian Flag today

Superb defense by Sergio Garcia at Hoylake but Rory was untouchable...

Speaking about the Belgian Flag, what about the win of Pierre Relecom in Switzerland yesterday!
