Nicolas Colsaerts: Talent, Ryder Cup record, hedonism and PGA Tour boredom

May 07, 2019, 12:00 AM

Nicolas Colsaerts doesn’t live by the book. Barely eighteen, he was not ready for the realities of life as a European Tour pro, so his abundant talent took a back seat in favour of a rock and roll lifestyle. But when he came back to the sport, the Belgian was a man on a mission!

This is the first episode in the series to focus on the opening day of a golf event, as Colsaerts - the first from his country to play in the Ryder Cup and the only rookie on the team - became a record breaker in Europe's ‘Miracle at Medinah’. It is a week he will cherish for the rest of his life.
