Nicolas Colsaerts will be back in action at the Royal Trophy in December, eager to erase the disappointment of Europe’s heart-breaking play-off defeat in last year’s thrilling encounter.

Colsaerts, the biggest hitter in world golf, was involved in the sudden death decider that saw K.T. Kim break the eight-all deadlock with a brilliant birdie on the first extra hole. The Belgian star’s own birdie putt to extend the play-off grazed the hole, but that setback merely whetted his appetite for more major competition team golf, following his triumphant Ryder Cup debut last year.

He becomes the first name on European Captain José Maria Olazábal’s team sheet and the Asian Team will not need reminding that he was unbeaten in his three matches on his Royal Trophy debut. His outrageous 60-footer for a final day eagle on the 15th hole at the Empire Hotel & Country Club was one of the highlights of the week.
