Nicolas Colsaerts believes that his experience in the Ryder Cup could open up more opportunities in the US.

Nicolas Colsaerts has claimed that being part of the triumphant Ryder Cup team can help him to enjoy more success in the US.

The Belgian impressed on his Ryder Cup debut last month and is hoping to earn a permanent card on the PGA Tour.

Speaking about his experience in Illinois, Colsaerts said: "It gives you a bit of confidence. If you can deal with a lot of pressure you'll be able to deal with a lot more stuff in the future.

"When you get a chance to play this Tour with all these players, the courses you play and on such a big stage, it would be stupid not to consider it.

"Once you get a taste of what the possibilities here are, they get you pretty excited."

The 29-year-old competes in the Open in California, beginning on Thursday.
