In the Bag 2013 with Nicolas Colsaerts

Whether you have heard about him from his success at the 2012 Volvo World Match Play, because of his prodigious driving distance from the tee, or arguably one of the most memorable incidents of the year when he drove his tee shot into a toilet (see video below), Nicolas Colsaerts is fast becoming one of the emerging stars on the European tour.

The likeable Belgian was a member of the victorious 2012 Ryder Cup team playing a huge part in earning a vital point against Tiger Woods and Steve Stricker in the afternoon fourballs on the first day. Let’s learn a little about him and what is in his bag for the 2013 golfing season.

Nicolas-Colsaerts-pro golfer



Career Highlights:

Without doubt, Colsaerts most impressive victory in his career to date came in May 2012, when he was the winner of the Volvo World Match Play Championship. After barely scraping through the group stage after narrowly defeating Charl Schwartzel in a play off, he went on to beat Justin Rose and Brandt Snedker both by 4 and 3 scorelines, before defeating Paul Lawrie in a memorable semi final on the 20th hole, after he was four down after the first four holes of the contest. In the final, he defeated Graeme McDowell by a hole to record a superb and unexpected victory that catapulted him into the world’s top 50.



Career Lowpoints:

Given his relatively young age and the fact that he comes from a country that isn’t particularly associated with producing top class golfers, Nicolas hasn’t really had any real low points in his career. Early in his time on the European Tour, he twice blew half way or final round leads in tournaments to finish down the field, perhaps raising questions as to his nerve, but he has since quashed them with his performances in the Open, Ryder Cup and Volvo Match Play in 2012, not to mention this years US Open where he finished a creditable 10th.



What does the future hold for Nicolas Colsaerts?

With his prodigious talent for driving a golf ball, Colsaerts is certainly able to pose a threat on most courses. Yet when he has been at his very best, it is his nerveless putting that has most impressed. His chipping game is also underrated and as he gains more accuracy with his driver, he will have the game to challenge in the top tournaments and Major events for many years to come.

Colsaerts biggest challenge in the next few years may well be to become Belgium’s first ever Major golf champion.
