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!

Golf National, Tuesday 30 June 2015

Great pro-am day with a lovely Rolex team. Always fun to chat with people coming from different horizons...

The course is immaculate, dry and fast. they did a great job cleaning some surroundings...

I learned that they hired a Spanish greenkeeper, congrats for the work!

BMW International German Open München

München, Friday 26 June 2015

-2 was not enough... The 16th killed my card but I tried everything on the 2 next holes...

Home for the week-end, then Paris and the golf National for a very hot week, suncream and and a lot of water mandatory.

München, Thursday 25 June 2015

First round, 1 under with 6 birdies. The game is still better than the score, patience,

München, Tuesday 23 June 2015

This is the first phase of an important trio: Germany - France - Scotland. In the past, I only performed well in Scotland, just before the Open. The BMW here in München is super organized tournament under the supervision of Marco Kaussler, who will be in charge of the Ryder Cup race in 2022 for Germany!

Great field, a lot of big guns who returned from Chambers Bay, and a strong german armada!

I feel good, in good form, I had a great break last week, Jérome Theunis is with me this week to check the technical part of the game, before those 3 weeks, Mich will be there next week!

Training week Belgium

München, The Kings of Distance, 18 June 2015

A big hitters'day organized by Callaway in München, they call it the "Kings of Distance"!

Not the most pleasing weather but a great atmosphere with Englishman Joe Miller, the unbeatable long hitter, Alvaro Quiros and Thomas Pieters. We all had great fun and the pubic loved it, proud to be a member of the Callaway staff players, a really good organized event.

Nice to see another Callaway man on top of the leaderbord at Chambers Bay: Henrik Stenson.

Brussels, 17 June 2015

Great coaching day and a nice round at Royal Waterloo where the course is in splendid conditions. Played there with my father, Brian Nilsson and Rick Elion, we all had great fun.

Tomorrow, Munchen, with the Callaway Kings of Distance! The big hitter Joe Miller will be there also, he's unbeatable... Young Pieters will be there also and the 4th player will be Alvaro Quiros! Quite heavy European Tour powder!!!

On Friday, I'll have the opportunity to play with the 11th player in the World Ranking (Amateurs): Thomas Detry. Looking forward to that training session with Mich and Jérôme sharing experiences with TD...

Brussels, 16 June 2015

After a disappointing last week of tournament on that well organized Lyoness Open in Austria, time to break after 5 weeks on Tour. It's US open time in Chambers Bay. This course makes a lot of buzz, interesting to see how this Major will be played... This course looks more like a British open venue, it's a bit strange for the USGA, but certainly open minded. I'm looking forward to see the outcome and the comments...

Fine to see great weather in Belgium, the Belgian Challenge Tour had also great conditions. This sunshine is perfect for the Knauf day today and a good chance to see the new club house again and to strive against those fast and undulated greens... Allways great welcome in Sart Tilman...

Lyoness Greenfinity Austrian Open

Diamond CC, Thursday 11 June 2015

Played ok all day, it's quite firm here on this Diamond course, I'm only using the Callaway "Mini Driver". Unfortunately I had an horrible bounce on the 14th par 3 a few feet off the green with a 4 iron. Stuck in a bush, mu only option was to come back to the tee and playing a unplayable ball, another 4 iron and 2 putts. 4 birdies on the back nine secured me a -2 score...

Diamond CC, Tuesday 9 June 2015

We, players, are quite fortunate to have so many countries organizing an event with such a wonderful energy. In this case it's Green energy! The promotors are doing their very best for the tournament success. We are in Bernd Wiesberger country and his game is in great shape for the moment. He's a momentum player and when he begans a birdie streak, there's a lot of red figures coming on his card... Spectacular player. The Austrian will share my tee time in company with a very nice and gentle player out France : Gary Stal.

I'm really looking forward to play this event because I need to ignate my "momentum" on the Tour, a couple of top 10 will help before the important threesome: Germany, France and Scotland!
