Thomas Pieters had a crazy moment during the second round of the Cazoo Open De France. Describing the shot, Pieters said “A kid coughed in my backstroke. I tried to stop…didn’t. Called a local referee who called another referee who both deemed it not a penalty.”

This week the DP World Tour heads to glorious Le Golf National, scene of Europe’s 2018 Ryder Cup triumph, for the Cazoo Open de France. Continental Europe’s oldest national open returns for its 104th edition, with defending champion Nicolas Colsaerts, fellow Belgian Thomas Pieters, home hero Victor Perez and last week’s winner Robert MacIntyre all in action. Big-hitting Pieters is on course for a career-best year after winning his first Rolex Series title in the opening event of 2022 in Abu Dhabi. Since then he has missed just one cut on the DP World Tour at the Masters Tournament, claiming four top tens along the way. After a well-deserved week off from tournament golf, Ewen Ferguson returns looking to continue his excellent 2022. The early part of the season was a case of feast or famine for Ferguson, as he claimed a maiden win in Qatar but only one other top 20 before August. After finishing 12th and the Cazoo Open supported by Gareth Bale his recent record reads: win-missed cut-second-missed cut. If that pattern continues, a good week is in store.
