Prague, Sunday 30 August 2015

And what about that Win of Thomas, strong play, Belgian flag high, very of him, great stuff!!!! There will be a smell of champaign in the plane now...;o))

For my part, My swing had an off day, nothing clicked... but finally a good week when changing a putting grip!

Concentrating now for next week Kings of Golf playing with a new Champion and my good old friend Marcel...

Everybody at Royal Zoute next Sunday, 14h for 18 holes of Bombers Golf, 3 winners on the course...

Prague, Saturday 29 August 2015

A good 15 first holes before 2 bad shots at the end and 2 bogeys, but a win of 30 places today... Tomorrow will be windy day, they say... but I will try to go low as my efforts on the greens are paying off... It's not yet the full confidence but we're building up...

Thomas is still going strong, this course suits him really well, we'll cheer him up tomorrow!

Very sad day for my coach Jérôme as he lost his father last night, all my thoughts for him and his family...

Prague, Friday 28 August 2015

Very nervously tiring afternoon when you need to wait for 6 hours if you're in or not... But I had time to spend on the puttinggreen with Brian on those 15 feet putts that shaved the hole during the 2 first rounds...

Thomas had find the holes rather easily, good course for him, he has definitely a great opportunity to chase his first win. Pierre (we call him Piet) is also with us for the week-end. Belgians are known now for being Bombers on the course. Three musketeers for the week-end.

I heard it's good weather for the last day of the International Juniors in Ravenstein, good luck for everybody there. Our Junior Bombers are rather tired, as usual they played too much in the summer...

Prague, Thursday 27 August 2015

Stick to my new putting technique, not yet successful, but we'll keep knocking on that door...

Pieters has found the birdies, it's maybe his tournament, he also likes the long courses. Go Thomas..

Prague, Tuesday 25 August 2015

Arrived yesterday night with Thomas Pieters. We practiced together today.

Prague is a lovely city. This tournament a once again a great effort done by a continental country...

Worked hard last week-end with my team to adjust my putting. I finally accepted Jérôme (backed a long time ago by Mich) vision on correcting my flow lines (aiming too much to the left). So I will go for the Cross Handed putting grip. My team is quite enthusiastic about it, so is Brian too!

With the Odyssey staff (thanks Seamus), we find a perfect grip Super stroke, FLAT SO 1.0.

Other players like Jordan Spieth, Rickie Fowler (on short putts) or Jim Furyk are using this same technique... Not easy to step from my traditionnal grip to the new one, but the enthusiasm around me must receive a real go!

Thursday 13.05 with Peter Uilhein and Greg Bourdy.

Denmark Open - Himmerland GC

Himmerland GC, Friday 21 August 2015

-1 that could have been much better, a tricky lie on my 18th and the ball ended in the pond... Playing very good, with 15 greens in regulation...

Great atmosphere here in Denmark where the public plays a wonderful role. Hole 16 is the place to be... This tournament is a perfect example of the future of golf on the continent. Emphasis on the public, good course, fun for everybody! This is also THE week for my friends Thomas Bjorn and Thorbjorn Olesen (His real first name is Jacob)!

Good practice session with Thomas after the game, we're playing close to each other...

Unfortunately Thomas Detry lost in play-off on the second round of the US Amateur...Good tournament though... On his learning process, getting better each week... Great work last 2 weeks with our coaching team: Mich and Jérôme. He's ready now for his last University year in Illinois...

Brussels, two Training weeks

Brussels, Sunday 9 August 2015

There are some good news, Shane Lowry' splendid win that can be overcast by very sad news. RIP Brian McFeat, I'm quite sad to hear the passing of the One & Only Brian McFeat, a real character,one of the guys that made everyday life on The EuropeanTour what it is...I have known Brian since my first day on Tour and will miss our weekly 5 min chats from now on. Thx for all u have done my friend

Brussels, Saturday 8 August 2015

Well done Belgian Champions Junior Bombers! Finger crossed for Thomas Detry...

Brussels, Friday 7 August 2015

I've played with Thomas Pieters in Houthalen without my coaches because they are in Slovakia at the Penati Golf Resort with Thomas Detry. Come on Belgium!!! Mich and Jérôme are with him for his second big upgrade week in the year. the first one was in Dubai in Januari and the second is now during this European Individual Championship. Since his return mid June, Thomas Detry is coached to reach a new level of performance, this is all part of a big plan to enhance his potential. Like for all the Junior Bombers this is a exciting process...

Mathieu Feron is doing quite well like other Juniors that we are following...

For my part, I'm excited in playing in the the next tournaments on the European tour, it's gonna be intense but I will be prepared and motivated to score well ... September will be important!

Saltire Energy Match Play by Paul Lawrie Scotland

Aberdeen Saturday 1 August 2015

Tried everything but I needed more birdies. Marc Warren had a perfect match play display around the turn, with 3 birdies nearly in a row. After that he didn't open the door and all my birdie chances went passed the hole...

Nevertheless, a good tournament.

Two weeks of break before Denmark and Prague!

Aberdeen, Friday 31 July 2015

Solid golf today, great win for the confidence. Tomorrow, another solid player to play against: Marc Warren.

Murcar golf is a great test. Not a long course, that's why I'm the last of the long hitters, but the rough is penal... and the temperatures are still on the winter side... Strong breeze also...

I hope to play 2 rounds today, match play at his best!

Aberdeen, Thursday 30 July 1015

Must salute Paul Lawrie for this tournament, great initiative.

Won my first match against an always solid Greg Bourdy but Scotland and match play makes me also play quite solidly. The work done in the last week begans to pay off.

The team welcomes this week Brians' wife and my dad in real scottish weather...

Omega Masters Crans Montana

Crans Montana, Monday 20 July 2015

Played the Flory van Donck Pro-Am today here in Crans Montana. For me it's a different Monday start than usual, but I would have rather played a Monday finish at the Open!

Good memories here last year, so in the mood for a good week!

Scottish Open by Aberdeen Asset Management

Gullane, Sunday 12 July 2015

Played good golf but didn't hole as many putts as I wanted to, I really needed more birdies on the front nine. 3 birdies and 1 eagle on the front nine is not enough during this tournament. One week of training now, before Switzerland in Crans-Montana, my next tournament.

Gullane, Friday 10 July 2015

Gone with the first tee-offs this morning, I had to wait till the last player came in to be sure on playing the week-end or not. I was so disappointed yesterday night after that having scored +3, that this morning I had made the check out  at the hotel (what I never do!) at 5.00 in the morning. My luggage had to wait for me in the changing room...

On the second tee, a par 5, I made a great drive, followed by an iron shot on the green. 2 quite putts and I could finally wrote down my first birdie on the the tournament. Then I cruised with some pars, not feeling totally confident on the greens before the back nine where I came closer to the flags and more successful with the birdies. Still missed birdies on 10-14 and 17 (beautiful tee shot 7 feet from the hole). The finishing hole was kindlier and I made there an important birdie (6 meters putt!!!). Quite happy to make this cut.

Let's play links golf this week-end!

Gullane, Tuesday 7 July 2015

Arrived yesterday night, early start today, at 7 on the course...

Really excited to discover this course, never played this one, but I heard so many great comments,

Links Golf is always a different story, two days now to adapt my game...

Open de France ALSTOM Golf National

Brussels, 4th July 2015

A lovely Independence Day to all my fellow American friends...

Golf National, Friday 3 July 2015

The 1 and 2nd hole killed me... hopefully I could show some birdies to the Belgian crowd, thanks to them all, it was very hot, they all were courageous! Congrats and have a safe trip home...

A week-end in Belgium and I'll fly Monday to Scotland!

Golf National, Thursday 2 July 2015

Thunderstorms in the morning didn't bring much luck on the greens... Not enough birdies, too easy bogeys.

I need to make a few birdies tomorrow to be able to play on the week-end... and it will be once again quite hot... these are very long days...

Golf National, Wednesday 1 July 2015

7.30 on the range with Mich Vanmeerbeek and Pete Cowen, do you think I was surrounded by enough quality persons? Quite interesting hearing those two speaking the same language...

Well, it(s so hot here, 35° no wind, that I decided to practce till 11.30 before it gets too hot...

Tomorrow 8.50 at the 10!
