Nicolas Colsaerts voted Hilton Golfer of the Month for October
Nicolas Colsaerts has been voted the European Tour’s Hilton Golfer of the Month for October after picking up his first victory in 2,709 days at the Amundi Open de France.
The 36-year-old Belgian received 57 per cent of the public vote ahead of Bernd Wiesberger, who came in second with 27 per cent after capturing his second Rolex Series title of the season at the Italian Open.
Looking for his first win since the 2012 Volvo World Matchplay, Colsaerts carded rounds of 67-66-67-72 for a 12 under par total at the testing Le Golf National layout and a one-shot victory. The standout moment from his final round was a chip in eagle three at the 14th to give him a cushion down the treacherous final stretch in Paris.
Wiesberger finished as a runner-up in the public vote after winning the Italian Open at Olgiata Golf Club. His victory in Rome was his second Rolex Series triumph of the season and vaulted him to the top of the Race to Dubai Rankings presented by Rolex heading into the Final Series.
Steven Brown came in third after picking up his maiden European Tour title at the Portugal Masters. Coming into the week at 150th in the Race to Dubai, Brown was preparing for a trip back to the Qualifying School rather than the Final Series. Brown preceded to shoot 17 under par for the week, highlighted by a final round 66 to wrap up his card for 2020 and a two-year exemption.
Jon Rahm rounded off the voting after successfully defending his title at the Open de España in Madrid. Rahm was in cruise control all week, shooting four rounds in the 60s and went on to win by five strokes.
