Nicolas Colsaerts (41) will not stop as a professional golfer after all. That news came out yesterday, but Colsaerts himself denies it and is aiming for fifteen tournaments in 2024, including the Soudal Open in Belgium.

The news that Colsaerts wanted to end his professional golf career came following the loss of his membership for the DP World Tour, the European golf circuit. But that does not mean that – contrary to previous reports – Colsaerts is giving up his golf career.

“It has come to my attention that a number of incorrect claims have been made regarding the status of my 2024 season. It is indeed true that I have unfortunately lost my membership on the DP World Tour, but I am hopeful that I will be able to compete in will play approximately 15 events with the absolute goal of regaining my full playing privileges. This is my only intention. I saw positive results at the end of 2023 and already some encouraging results in the first two tournaments of 2024,” said the golfer himself in a statement.

“As golfers we are always looking at different aspects of the game to improve and the health challenges I have had over the last few years have definitely hindered my ability to play at my best. I am now healthier than ever, I am training again and my love for the game is still completely intact after all these years. I can assure you that that love will never disappear,” says Colsaerts, who also makes it clear that he will be on the court at the Soudal Open, the Belgian top tournament on the DP World Tour, at the end of May.
