Come on Belgium - Great performance Thomas Pieters

Tuesday, 21 February 2017

And what about the 2nd place of Thomas Pieters at Riviera!

Just a great performance,

Thomas is the most dangerous when he loves the course and he he does love Riviera...  he won the NCAA on this same course, and bang, last week, he's raised the Belgian flag on the podium. Enormous...

I liked also the double 67 to enter in the draw of the ever surprising Tom Detry....

Come on Belgium...

Maybank Malaysian Open

Saujana, Thursday 9 February 2017

Another very very very frustrating day...

Saujana, Wednesday 8 February 2017

Always one of the hottest week of the season, but a good track and a strong field.

Pro-am today before a 13:40 start tomorrow from the 10. It's on those afternoon session that you pray to avoid hot waves or thunderstorms...

Good to be back in Malaysia...

Dubai Desert Classic

Dubai, Wednesday 1 February 2017

Another very intense preparation with shooting for the European Tour, solo shooting for Callaway, interview and shooting for Worldwide Golf, 18 holes pro-am from 7.00 this morning, so quite a lot activities before a tournament.

Next week will be quieter in Malaysia, super hot and humid but a little quieter...

Game is in good shape, I found my perfect Epic head, a little smaller, the one I've tested in Qatar. I'll stick to this one. Quite confident with my swing and my equipment, let's play Dubai and Malaysia with confidence.

I told the World Super 6 tournament Promotor in Perth that i won't come down to Australia. Five tournament in a row is too ambitious when weeks are so packed with activities...

The weather here is quite hot for the period of year and by experience this is announcing some awkward sand storms... Let's hope it will not be verified this time...

Qatar Masters Doha

Dubai, Sunday 29 January 2017

Back in Dubai with my preferred Emirates captain, Erwann Testard. What a sport's day! Roger Federer 18th Major title is fantastic, so delighted to see his talent winning another Grand Chelem! Time now to look the handball world final...

My game is shaping well with a lot of greens in regulation, my trade mark. Even if I was not quite as close as I liked of the pins, I retrieve the rhythm of the competition.. it's a good feeling for the next two tournaments, the Desert Classic and Malaysia.

Doha, Saturday 28 January 2017

Up and down rounds, too many bogeys and not enough bogeys on this track. Quite windy but not the kind of wind we are use to in Europe. But even if I'm in the middle of the pack, this week was a great training week. Together with Tom Detry, we've spent an awful lot of time on the range and around the greens. In fact we capitalize on the fact that Jérome was here with us to fine tune all our shots. The "metronome" training on the greens was quite interesting and we invest some time on the putting green around the importance of "tempo".

Let's see what tomorrow has to offer, starting at nine with "The President", good old Raph Jacquelin, for the final 18 of the week...

Doha, Wednesday 25 January 2017

Well, a few adjustments to my Epic Callaway driver, testing the new golf balls from Titleist, working my long game and my tempo on putts with Jérôme, another very intense preparation this week again.

Quite happy to see young Tom Detry being in such a good mood, playing great golf... "Belgium is certainly a ball hitter nation" is everybody saying... and we just respond in a surrealistic way: "Yes, at home, everybody is hitting the ball like this, we are born with it..."

After all the fuzz of last week, I'm feeling that the season is really launching now...

Tomorrow at 12.00 on tee 1.

HSBC ABU DHABI

Abu Dhabi, Friday 20 January 2017

Very frustrating 2 days. Didn't find the fairways for 2 days. Even if my preparation was optimal, I need a few tournament to get in tournament mood... The good news is that I have 5 in a row with still 4 to go... The other good news is that I finished in style, with 3 fairways and .... 3 birdies...

But Qatar is on next week, Jérôme Theunis will be coaching me and Tom Detry will also play, again 2 Belgians on the players list...

Abu Dhabi, Thursday 19 January 2017

A first round stays a first round, not my preferred rounds... I was not in my full scoring mood...

I hope to sign a better card tomorrow, I'm perfectly prepared so I can only grow with the number of rounds, hopefully it's gonna be 4 this week...

The Abu Dhabi course is immaculate and the Peter Harradine proves one more time that it's one of the better design on the calendar.

Let's have a second great round to pursue my preparation to play at my best...

Season 2017 starts with our golfcamp in Dubai

Dubai, Thursday 12 January 2017

After 3 weeks of physical training, I arrived early this week in Dubai to prepare the 2017 season.

Mich, Jérôme and Vincent are here to implement our 2017 plan.

Jumeirah Performance center is a perfect setting for our preparation, thanks Mark Gregson for your hospitality.

Not many changes in the bag, the EPIC GBB Driver is in of course.

From next week in Abu Dhabi, I'll play 5 tournaments in a row.


Merry Christmas and Happy New Year

Brussels, Wednesday 21 December 2016

2016 was an interesting year and a little bird told me that 2017 will be full of surprises...

I had a look on the calendar and I might well play 5 tournaments in a row from Abu Dhabi. After a break, I need to warm the engine on the race track. There are so many differences between a practice game and competition that I need to warm up to race at full speed...

I might as well play one or two tournaments on the PGA Tour in March this year,  then come back on the European Tour in Morocco after a training camp at Anahita in Mauritius in the early days of April.

2017 will be a year with some new features like the Rolex Series, the calendar management will be key, very interesting also...

And I'm also looking forward to play along Tom Detry, and I know that Thomas Pieters feels the same... Tom had the best start he could dream of in South Africa but the season is long and demanding. With the new rules, top 100 R2D is the new limit to get a Tour card! Players will need well over 300.000 points, a strong challenge...

Before wishing everybody all the best for 2017, I want to thank all of you who worked with me, sponsored me, cheered for me, helped me, criticized me ;o) and loved me during these 365 days of 2016... From the heart, thank you...
