Confident Colsaerts is ready to be Europe's Ryder Cup weapon

EUROPE’S Nicolas Colsaerts believes he can be an essential weapon for his team as they attempt to retain the Ryder Cup at Medinah Country Club near Chicago. The Belgian is the only rookie in captain Jose Maria Olazabal’s side and that he was even in contention for selection highlights how far he has come in three years after previously being ranked 1,305th in the world. “This is quite an achievement,” the 29-year-said. “When you look back and you see where I was three years ago, I’m just the perfect example that if you want something really bad and you put your work into it, if you’ve got the heart and the passion, anything is achievable. It’s funny, because I thought about it, it’s almost like I feel like I’ve come back from the dead, which is a bit of a weapon.”
