“I disappeared for a couple of years, I guess,” said Pieters. “I’m so happy to be back. As a golfer, top 50 in the world is your strive point and when I jumped out maybe three years ago, I took it badly. I’m happy to be back again.”
30-year-old Pieters is the first Belgian to win a Rolex Series event, with the Dubai Desert Classic up next. It was his sixth win on the DP World Tour, and first win since the Portugal Masters last year.
Pieters, who once finished tied for fourth at the Masters, and was in Europe’s 2016 Ryder Cup team, said he “had good control” of his ball all day.
He had a pretty infamous moment with ex-girlfriend Eva Bossaerts
Thomas Pieters’ ex-girlfriend is Eva Bossaerts, who was was born in 1999 in Antwerp, Belgium. The couple were together in 2017, when Eva made headlines after Pieters accidentally struck her with a wayward drive.
In the final round at the Genesis Open, Pieters hit a tee shot that wound up striking a fan, which turned out to be then-girlfriend Eva. A fan in attendance caught the incident on camera and shared it to social media at the time.
