      I'm missing the statistics on Nicolas Colsaerts, our Belgian representative 🙂

      If driving distance is going to be key (with the wide fairways in mind), than his whopping 318 yards average could be key.

      But what I wanted to say: Nice work!

      Good point, I couldn't find stats for Colsaerts. He is a long off the tee. Thx for checking out the blog.

      Told you he (Colsaerts) could be crucial 🙂

      With a massive 62 strokes on Friday, singlehandedly beating Woods-Stricker. (eventhough he lost single match)

      Man, what a weekend.

      I'm so tired this morning, after spending my entire evening in front of the tele, to see Europe snatch the cup at around a quarter past midnight.
