Former Ryder Cup player Nicolas Colsaerts has won his first name since 2012 at the Open de France.
Regardless of carding a one-over-par 72 in the final round at Le Golf National, the Belgian finished one shot ahead of Denmarks Joachim B. Hansen.
Colsaerts began to Dubai about the European Tours Hurry and at risk of losing his card.
Ive been coming here because I dont know how many decades, its been a very long road, he told Sky Sports.
So many people have supported me over time, thats why I get really emotional. I moved through ups and downs for so many decades now.
Recent years for Colsaerts happen to be a far cry from 2012 if he had been chosen as a wildcard by captain Jose Maria Olazabal to participate in the European group that pulled theMiracle of Medinah whenever they arrived from 10-4 down to defeat the USA 14.5-13.5.
There was plenty of play ahead, although now rated 424th from the world, rounds of 67, 66, and 67 had given him a three-stroke lead going into the final round.
he chipped in for an eagle three at the 14th to return facing 22, his advantage had gone.
But since the Dane has been passed the guide, he taken to operate a double-bogey six up.
Nevertheless Hansen faltered at the 17th using a bogey of his own, enabling Colsaerts to hang for his third European Tour title and first.
England amazed over Australia in their win, but face the evaluation of holders New Zealand for a place at the World Cup closing.
