Hong Kong Open

Hong Kong, Friday 17 October 2014

After a solid -4 yesterday, I had for the first time a great night of sleep but waked up totally dizzy, maybe an after-effects of the jetlag??? No juice, no adrenaline, weak mind, weak body, impossible to score...

Ok, no need to complain, just accepting the situation... I'll fly tomorrow to Bangkok with Fohn and Brian for a Thai Week before the BMW Masters!

Hong Kong, Tuesday 14 October 2014

Good news, all my bags found, they will arrive tomorrow with the next flight from Frankfurt... Pfiouuuu

This was a comment when they didn't find yet my bags:

Making such a long flight and arriving here in Hong Kong without any luggage is a nightmare. This is certainly the most expensive ticket in Business Class that I ever bought, you can buy a car with that kind of money, and I couldn't practice today... I'm playing in one of the main flight with Miguel A. Jimenez (last year winner) and Kiradech Aphibarnrat on Thursday, how the hell can they not find my luggage, a black bag and an enormous travel golfbag!!! Third time this year, a year of all kind of records it seems...I hate that situation!

Frankfurt, Monday 13 October 2014

On my way to Hong Kong... some good news: 130th World Ranking and 58th on the Race to Dubai... On the move and still 4 tournaments to go...

Portugal Open Victoria Vilamoura

Vilamoura, Sunday 12 october 2014

So this day began well but turrned out to be a nightmare for the golfcourse, the super heavy rain we had around 1.30 killed the greens and the bunkers...

The decision was to cancel the third round and to keep the results as after 36 holes with 75% of the Prize Money distributed!

Vilamoura, Friday 10 October 2014

Vincent: What an awkward day: we had rain, rain and more rain. It only rains for 4 days in Algarve and it's now. What a pity because it's a wonderful tournament. I think that the tournament will only be played on 54 holes, Nicolas will play 2 more holes tomorrow at 8.00 to complete his 2nd round and the other players will have also to complete their 2nd round... Not easy to find your rythm in those circumstances (very difficult during 18 and 1), well not for everybody because Alexander Levy signed a superb 61, he will be on the lead Sunday morning and will rest tomorrow all day...

Vilamoura, Thursday 9 October 2014

Vincent: Story of the day: a great try for 59! Finally -11, best score ever for Nico, -9 was his best in tournament... A solid display from 1 to 18 with a hot finish after the eagle on 15 because the fantom of 59 became a possible reality. Great rythm all day, 17 greens, 2 eagles, 7 birdies, no bogeys...

Vilamoura, Wednesday 8 october 2014

Kings of Golf by Optima what a success and what an opportunity to have those wonderful personnalities in Belgium! thanks again to the public, Andy Hancock and his VAAV crew, the Marshalls, the RZGC staff and Jos, Léopold Lippens (my preferred Maire in the world) and last but not least Jeroen Pikeur... the cornerstone of the Kings of Golf.

Travelled here with Thomas Pieters whom we play the golf to Rio on Monday in la Tournette. An olympic day with all the COIB partners, always a pleasure.

Time to tackle that Victoria course this week. This is the last tournament in Europe for this season. These last ones are very important for many players on different rankings. I'll have a go to reach the R2D finals...

Next events on my Schedule

Here is an overview of my program for the coming weeks (subject to change according to intermediate results):

  • European Tour: Portugal, Hong Kong, Perth,
  • Asia: Thailand (Chiangmai) and Japan (Dunlop)

More details in my schedule

'Road to Rio' when golf is back in the olympic family

Monday Thomas Pieters and me will participate in an event set up by the COIB-BOIC, with an eye on the next games in Rio where golf and rugby will be the most recent addition to the sports already represented, and replacing softball and baseball.


This promotional day will take place in Château de La Tournette Monday 6 October.



Kings of Golf, Royal Zoute

Sunday will be a nice day for every golf fan in Belgium. An extraordinary opportunity to watch some legends of the European golf and real stars of the Ryder Cup.

I am very glad to share this game with Miguel Angel Jimenez, Jose Maria Olazabal and Sam Torrance. Everyone of us is committed to this event since we are playing for the benefit of charitable institutions of our choice.  In my case, I support the Association Muco Vereniging  They are doing such an important job for all youngsters who suffer from that incurable disease.

We would appreciate if you can be part of this nice event. And good news, the weather forecast is clement...

Announcement Miguel Angel Jimenez attendance at the Kings of Golf

Tuesday, 23 september 2014

So happy that Miguel Angel Jimenez accepted our invitation to play the Kings of Golf. This will be a wonderful 4 BBB for all Belgian golfers and for our charities. More than 30 years of history of the European Tour and the Ryder Cup will be present at Royal Zoute. I'm really grateful to Sam, Txema and Miguel to spend this afternoon of golf on Sunday 6 october.

More personally, I'm relieved to be back in a position to win again on Tour. It was quite close in Wales and that birdie on 17 could have open the doors of the play-off. Anyway Joost Luiten was in super form this week after a strong build up with a 4th place in Italy, and a 5th at the KLM, there are no secrets...

Great day in Royal Zoute with partner 2PM. I had the pleasure to hand them pictures of the Junior Bombers who had a solid summer, 2 pictures that will find proudly a place on their wall of the new 2PM offices in Knokke.

RYDER CUP week. So happy to be there with the team in Gleneagles. I will follow them very closely with a micro of the BBC radio in the hand, I'm really looking forward to! GO EUROPE...

Wales Open ISPS The Celtic Manor

Celtic Manor, Thursday 18 September 2014

My trustful CALLAWAY driver did it again. 447 yards longest drive on 18 in Celtic Manor. Longest drive ever on the European Tour! But more important, I made an eagle on that hole for some mojo on my game...

Anyway, it's in the Record book!

Today 66 -5

Celtic Manor, Tuesday 16 September 2014

Vincent: "After a good week in Holland, Nicolas flew this morning to Wales to play the ISPS Handa Wales Open on the famous Celtic Manor course. There's already a pre-Ryder Cup flavor because this course was the scene of the 38th edition of the Ryder Cup in 2010. Europe won 16 1/2 - 11 1/2 against USA and the European Captain was Colin Montgomerie.

Speaking about next week's Ryder cup, 4 players from the European Team will be in Celtic Manor: Lee Westwood, Stephen Gallacher, Thomas Bjorn ans Welshman Jamie Donaldson (who never won yet his national open...)!"

For Nicolas this open played on a very challenging course is another opportunity to make some move on the Race to Dubai order of Merit...

Overview

Nicolas Colsaerts is a Belgian golf professional. Having retained his privileges on the European Tour and the PGA Tour, Nicolas is competing in both Tour events for the second consecutive year.

His selection in the European Team for the 2012 Ryder Cup was what he had always dreamed of, ever since he was a child.
