Big-hitting Belgian Nicolas Colsaerts has announced that he will play on the PGA Tour next year.

The 29-year-old starred in Europe's historic Ryder Cup victory at Medinah in September, most notably going 10-under par to seal a vital point against Tiger Woods and Steve Stricker on the first day.

Colsaerts has earned £426,463 over this year, which qualifies him for a slot on the American tour. He posted the news on Twitter: "It's official now...PGA Tour member!!

"I will still play a few in Europe...my heart will always be back home."

Colsaerts, who turned professional in 200, is ranked number 34 in the world.
