Colsaerts One Step Closer To Dream

The big hitting Belgian Nicolas Colsaerts was over the moon with his start at the Johnnie Walker Championship at Gleneagles – if things were to stay as they are he would be going to Chicago with the rest of the European Team but unfortunately he still has three more rounds to negotiate and a lot of hard work in front of him.

You have to admire the start he’s made though, I know these guys get paid a hell of lot and have a great life but it takes a lot of guts and nerve to produce a great round of golf knowing you have to come in the top two to qualify for the biggest event in golf.

He managed to shoot a three under par 69 to be one behind the brilliant Thorbjørn Olesen and said: “Exactly the day I wanted – something not very stressful.”

Even if Colsaerts doesn’t manage a top two finish he must have a good chance of a wild card if necessary, but he rightly wants qualifying for the team automatically as he feels it would do his confidence the world of good heading into the match in Chicago.
