LONDON (Reuters) - Nicolas Colsaerts is ready to take the United States by storm when he switches to the PGA Tour from Europe after becoming the first Belgian to appear in the Ryder Cup.
The 29-year-old is trying to secure his playing card in the U.S. for the 2013 season and Belgian Golf Federation president Jean De Vooght is convinced the longest driver on the European and PGA Tours will be a big hit across the Atlantic.
The 29-year-old only scored one point from four matches on his Ryder Cup debut at Medinah but eight birdies and an eagle in the fourballs helped down 14-times major winner Tiger Woods.
"The way he hits the ball so far, Americans like that. They can make a personality of him. In England people care about the score not if someone can hit the ball much further than anybody else," De Vooht told Reuters.
"Golf in Europe is on top so it's progressing whereas in the States they need some new stars. Nicolas is one of them. He's a good kid and not snobbish."
"Everybody now knows where Nicolas is this week. Everybody is on the internet. Nicolas Colsaerts is so much in America," added De Vooght, who believes the Belgian's persona could help freshen up the PGA Tour where 71 percent of the players are from the United States.
