AGE: 36
FROM: Brussels, Belgium 
TOUR: European Tour 
CAREER EARNINGS (€): $8,586,638
2018 FORM: Wins – 0; Top-10s – 2

KEY STAT: Sits 25th on the European Tour in Greens in Regulation, suggesting the pure ball-striking that saw him take out the 2012 World Match Play title is still there, even if the driving and putting isn’t. Is this the week it all clicks?

WHAT YOU NEED TO KNOW: It’s been a lean year for the man known as the Belgian Bomber, who slid to 180th in the world with only two top-10 results. After his matchplay success in 2012 and subsequent Ryder Cup wildcard selection, Colsaerts had the world at his feet. But consistency has been his big downfall, something he’s found hard to rediscover while jumping between the European and PGA tours. Well out of this year’s Race to Dubai, a win in Sydney could revive golf’s Muscles from Brussels.
