Thomas Pieters

Pieters started in golf at age 5 after his parents played on holiday in South Africa. After his education at the Top Sport School of the Golf Association Flanders (Belgium), where he first met his current coach Pete Cowen, he had a celebrated amateur college career in America. He studied at the University of Illinois, where he won the individual 2011 Jack Nicklaus Invitational and the individual 2012 NCAA Division I Men's Golf Championship in his second year. The following year, he finished 2nd with his team at the 2013 NCAA Division I Men's Golf Championship and won the individual 2013 Big Ten Conference Championship. Turned professional right after college. Long considered one of the stars of the future, he came through all three stages of the 2013 Qualifying School, taking the 20th card at the Final Stage.
2014 Notes: Played in 27 events and made 10 cuts. Had three top-10s, including a T-2nd at the Open de Espana. Also had a T-4th at the Nordea Masters. Finished 83rd in the Race to Dubai.
2015 Notes: Continued making a good impression after his rookie season on the European Tour with two consecutive wins, first at the D+D REAL Czech Masters in August and again two weeks later at the KLM Open. In the Czech Republic, he shrugged off a two-shot penalty in the third round when he hit the wrong ball to ultimately finish three strokes clear of Pelle Edberg. His family had traveled 850km overnight by road from Belgium to watch the final round, and their presence inspired him to close out the victory with a 3-under-par 69. Had to come from behind in the Netherlands, where he battled a much stronger field. Was four back at the start of the last day and looked to be heading into a playoff after a 5-under-par 65, but his rival, Lee Slattery, missed a three-foot par putt at the last hole to hand the Belgian the title. For the year, he played 26 events, making 19 cuts and finishing in the top-5 five times. Finished 29th on the Road to Dubai.
2016 Notes: Started the year with a runner-up finish at the Abu Dhabi Championship, one shot behind Rickie Fowler. Came in 3rd at the True Thailand Classic. After that, he struggled a bit, but then went on a three-week run, first representing Belgium at the Rio 2016 Olympics, where he finished 4th, four shots out of a podium position. The next week, he traveled to Prague in the Czech Republic and finished 2nd, one shot behind winner Paul Peterson. Then it was off to Denmark to play in the Made in Denmark tournament. Playing in the first round with Ryder Cup captain Darren Clarke, he shot a first-round 62 en route to winning by a shot over Bradley Dredge. A month afterward, Clarke chose Pieters as a captain's pick to play in his first Ryder Cup. He went 4-1 in his five matches in the European team's 17-11 loss to the United States at Hazeltine, the best record by a European rookie in Ryder Cup history. Overall, the best rookie record was in 1979 when Larry Nelson was a perfect 5-0. For the year, Pieters finished 25th in the Race to Dubai.
2017 Notes: Playing on a sponsor's exemption at the Genesis Open, he made eight birdies in the final round to shoot an 8-under 63, jumping into a T-2nd with Scott Brown, five behind Dustin Johnson. The runner-up finish came on the same Riviera Country Club course where he won the 2012 NCAA individual title (while playing for the University of Illinois) en route to National Player of the Year honors. Collected 245 non-member FedExCup points, moving his total to 306 (just 13 shy of earning Special Temporary Membership). Earned those points by way of his T-5th finish in the WGC-Mexico Championship to get his temporary membership on the PGA Tour for the rest of 2017. At the Masters, finished T-4th, four behind Sergio Garcia and Justin Rose. Had another 4th place finish at the WGC-Bridgestone, where he was the first-round leader and had a share of the 54-hole lead with Zach Johnson. After missing the cut at the PGA Championship, returned to play in Europe and finished 20th in the Race to Dubai.
2018 Notes: Played in 22 European Tour events making 21 cuts with four top-10 finishes. Was 27th in the Race to Dubai. Was T-5th at the Abu Dhabi Championship, T-6th at the Aberdeen Standard Scottish Open. Was T-6th at the PGA Championship, six shots back of winner Brooks Koepka. His last top-10 was T-9th at the D+D Real Czech Masters.
2019 Notes: Played in 24 European Tour events making 21 cuts with 4 top-ten finishes. Was 31st in the Race to Dubai. Was T-6th at the Oman Open, two shots back of winner Kurt Kitayama. After a slow first half of his year, broke through at teh D+D Real Czech Masters to win by a shot over Adri Arnaus. After that was T-10th at the KLM Open and ended his year with a T-6th at the DP World Tour Championship, Dubai.
2020 Notes: Played in 13 European Tour events making 11 cuts with two top-ten finishes. Was 45th in the Race to Dubai and earned euro467,443. Was T-3rd at the Saudi International, he was 3 shots back of winner Graeme McDowell. His last start before the COVID-19 break was the Qatar Masters and he finished T-21st. One of the good points of the break, Pieters and his girlfriend Stephanie had a baby girl Florence on July 24th which prevented him to travel and play in the PGA Championship. Didn't play competitively until the Celtic Classic in mid-August finishing T-3rd, three shots back of winner Sam Horsfield. Ended his season with a T-36th finish at the DP World Tour Championship, Dubai.
2021 Notes: Was T-10th at the Saudi International.
On his home internet page, Pieters has a section that shows how many kilometers he has traveled this year. In past years it's shown him traveling many times around the world but because of COVID-19 it's pretty small. In 2019 going into the PGA Championship (remember it was in May), he had traveled more than 82,733 miles in 2019, the equivalent of 3.32 times around the world. In 2020 he only has traveled 16,244 miles and .65 times around the world, flying to New York for the U.S. Open was his first airplane trip in six months. Unfortunately he has taken this feature down probably for lack of traveling.
